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.


#25 Hmmm, I'm not sure about "defintely"

Personally, I find it confusing that there's two separate "File Bookmarks" windows. I usually don't use File Bookmarks as a rule. Instead I just "Add bookmarks" and when it gets out of hand (i.e., I have to scroll down them), I organize them into folders or delete them and begin again. So the only purpose that "File Bookmark" has for me, is to create a tab group (which admittedly, I only have a few of). This would have represented a great shortcut if it had a "File as Group" option or acted like an "Add Bookmark" with one click bookmarking. Instead, I'm kind of at a loss of what to use it for, except for the dragging to the desktop (which I haven't thought of in the past).
