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 firstname.lastname@example.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.

The number's aren't confusing if you follow development - they make sense for devs and those of us that follow other OSS projects, they just seem confusing for the average surfer.
I just think it needs to be made clear, either on the start page, release notes, or wherever. For example, kernel.org has something like "The latest stable release is 2.4.18, the latest development release is 2.5.16" or whatever.
That way, I can send mom and dad to 1.0 branch, and those that want to continue to test goto 1.1.
