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 1.0 branch is designed to be a stable branch that vendors can work from. It will have new releases (1.0.1, 1.0.2 etc.) that will mainly be critical fixes. The trunk will be developed parallel to the branch with milestones being released every quarter or so (with preceding alpha and beta releases). As most of the development work will continue on the trunk, testers should concentrate on that (particularly after 1.0 is released). Though it is theoretically, possible that 1.1alpha could be released before 1.0, it probably won't be. Average end users aren't going to be using Mozilla (they'll use Netscape or whatever) so they don't really have to worry about the difference between the 1.0.x (branch) and the 1.x (trunk) releases.
