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.

"You are being provided with an internet aplication suite at no charge, and yet you and others are quick to demand, not ask but demand, that it be tailored to suit you."

What are you talking about? Nobody demanded anything here. Someone simply pointed out that it sucks that the roadmap isn't updated whenever there's a relase. Personally I don't think it's a huge deal that the roadmap web page isn't always up to date within 30 seconds, but there were no demands at all in the original post so I don't see what you're crying about here.

With testing crowds of 400000 people (that's the number of downloads of RC1 from what I've heard) there are bound to be a couple of people who aren't entirely happy and who haven't got the best verbal skills and demand things with harsh language. This is to be expected whenever you're shipping software to large crowds of people - hell, even to small crowds of people! But that's completely off topic for the parent post where nobody was demanding anything - merely posting an opinion.
