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.


#77 frame options not in a submenu

For RC1 I created a zipfile with three changed files and instructions for getting 0.9.9 style contextmenus back. I've updated this for RC2 (deleted one line from one file, that's all that was changed between RC1 and RC2 in those files) <http://juima.org/stuff/rc2contextmenus.zip>

These menus aren't ideal - far too large in many instances; but removing items from them is a lot easier than adding items, so I'm providing it this way. At least this way you get far easier access to the essential options "reload frame" and "view frame source" (as well as the infinitely useful "show only this frame" and "open frame in new tab". (Oh, and back, forward, reload and stop appear everywhere they did in 0.9.9 as well.) I probably should go and write an .xpi for it (at the very least to allow many non-savvy webdesigner friends I have to get their favorite contextmenus back), but don't think I'll get around to that anytime soon.
