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.

I was a bit surprised yesterday when I thought I was opening a link into a new window when it appeared in the same window with its own tab. One would have thought "the new tab method" would have been placed under the "Open Link in New Window". I always work with multiple windows open and was a bit irritated at first. I guess I have adjusted already.

Other than that, everything seems to me progressing right nicely. I am, again, very happy with Mozilla and am definetly looking forward to the actual 1.0, and beyond. THANKS!!!
