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.

It was pulled from rc2 because it was affecting startup time and new window creation time. The code is parsed even if the page contains no links. It's still in the trunk builds.

This bug details the problems <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102992>

This fixed bug is the one that removed it <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138496>

To get it back you have to edit navigator.xul in the comm jar, adding this line <?xul-overlay href="chrome://navigator/content/linkToolbarOverlay.xul"?>

There is an untested xpi attached to bug 138496 that is susposed to restore the toolbar, but it was created on May 1, so it backs out any bug fixes made since then.

It wouldn't be hard to create a new xpi that restores this feature, but I wouldn't advise creating it until after 1.0 is released so it dosen't back out any other bug fixes.
