Mozilla 1.0 Release Candidate 2 Released
Friday May 10th, 2002
mozilla.org today released the second release candidate of Mozilla 1.0, in preparation for the final release of 1.0, hopefully by the end of this month. You can grab it by going to the releases page or by going to the ftp site. You can also check out the release notes and a full list of what's new.
A brief list of what's new between RC1 and RC2 includes HTTP 1.1 pipelining support, the removal of the link toolbar (for performance reasons, still on in the trunk), and this will be the first milestone release with a fix for the security hole announced last week. Along with this, the main focus has been on stability, and a number of crash and top crash fixes have gone in.
Along with the release of RC2, mozilla.org has updated the release roadmap with some rough estimates of what will be happening on the trunk with 1.1, and announcing today's release of RC2.
#16 As usual, the roadmap was not updated

There are thousands and thousands of manhours invested to make RC2, and it seems to be impossible that somebody invests the two minutes it takes to update the roadmap everytime something is released? I think it is embarrasing and leaves an unprofessional impression - all the more since the roadmap is linked to from the releases page, this mozillazine article, and often also reports about the release that appear in computer magazines.
