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.

The best way to handle this would be a XPI that replaced comm.jar with a revised copy that included navigator.css with the "missing" line restored. This would also allow you to modify the overlay to have it turned on by default and fix anything else in comm.jar that was needed for the toolbar. This would make it work on Linux, but would back out any changes made to comm.jar after the xpi was prepared. so it's best to wait for 1.0 to make this kind of fix.
