Mozilla 1.1alpha Plans

Thursday May 30th, 2002

David Baron has posted a Mozilla 1.1alpha update to netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey. He notes that the release has slipped a bit due to work on the 1.0 branch and that drivers@mozilla.org is anxious to prevent any further delays. Therefore, the freeze for 1.1alpha will occur at midnight Pacific Daylight Time on Wednesday 5th June. The Roadmap has been updated to reflect the slippage.


#14 Confusing release numbers

I understand that the next release can't be a 1.0.1, then 1.0.2, etc as these are maintenance releases on 1.0. But why not go for a 1.1.0, 1.1.1, 1.1.2 until stable enought and then call it 1.2 ....

Some people might assume the 1.1 would be a major new release, which it isn't, just of bunch of bug fixes and performance enhancements if I have followed correctly.

Seems to mee confusing to have 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 out soon after each other without having major changes (like an included Calendar for example).

Also, it is very hard to know what will be in new releases. It would be nicer if one could see when to expect what. New functionality is included by announcing a fix for the bug number of the feature request, but there is no HTML page of what to expect when, only when to expect "1.1", "1.2", etc. whatever this might mean for an end-user.
