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.
If some of the people in this forum who have followed Mozilla for years are confused by Mozilla's numbering system, then think how much worse it will be when Mozilla 1.0 is released and lots of total newbies decend on the site. Yes I know "Mozilla is not for endusers", but that dosen't mean that there won't be a lot of them anyway.
Why not have a link on the site explaining what the numbers mean. Something like the first digit means a major release, second digit an upgrade to an earlier release, third digit means a bug fix to an earlier release.
Oh, since I bought up first digits, I'll ask the question, is there any plan to branch for Mozilla 2.0 for some hard core expermental code for the next major release?
