Mozilla 1.0 RC1 Released

Thursday April 18th, 2002 today released the first 1.0 Candidate, in preparation for a final 1.0 build. They'll be using RC1 to evaluate where the 1.0 branch stands as far as crash bugs, and other things that are tracking. RC1's changes since 0.9.9 include the abilty to view the source of a cgi (the most duped bug), reorganized context and main menus, LDAP over SSL, return recipts, new animated mail alerts on Windows, Download Manager, final xul syntax changes, and numerious other bug fixes.

You can download RC1 from's Releases Page or read the Release Notes. We highly encourage you to download the talkback enabled builds, so crashes can be found and logged prior to 1.0. (These pages haven't reached yet, you can grab builds from the FTP site.)

Once people start using RC1 and get a handle on how the reception of it goes, they will be deciding whether or not to release another candidate or 1.0 itself. We'll keep you updated on this process, and let you know what is decided.

It was always there for me. Of course, I've been using the same generally installation of Win2k (some installs over the top, but nothing fresh) since August 2000. I think I've installed every major milestone (over the top) of mozilla since M15 or so. I have downloads back to M5, but I'm pretty sure that I didn't install those on this particular install. FWIW, I started using mozilla full-time at .9.8. The speed improvements for the windowing system were what did it for me.

So I guess you could say that just like with Windows, my mozilla installation was in desperate need for a fresh install. ;)
