Mozilla 1.0 Release Candidate 2 Released

Friday May 10th, 2002 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, 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.

#43 edit link in composer - disappeared

Does anyone else bemoan the loss of the edit link in composer feature that was present up until RC1 (and in all the netscape browsers). This was (for me anyway) a really really useful feature which for some unknown reason the UI design team decided to take out.

I opened a bug in bugzilla to see if it could be put back but no luck. This bug lasted less that 24 hours (which didn't give any time to amass votes towards it). I was under the (prehaps mistaken) impression that bugzilla held design request as well as bugs. Anyone got any insight on this?
