In a newsgroup posting, Dawn Endico says, "The MOZILLA_1_0_RELEASE branch has been cut and while there is some tiny chance that we will need to take further changes, it is highly probable that this is the source we will release as Mozilla 1.0."

Read Dawn's full message for more details. Note that Mozilla 1.0 has not yet been released.

It is past time for NS 4.X code to die, and NS 4 along with it. If we continue to support bad NS 4.X code, we will perpetuate a horrid misgenated object model that's over 5 years old and has never adopted by any standards body. We will continue to have to fork HTML, JavaScript, and CSS code in order to accomodate it. We will continue to make it impossible to develop truly cross-browser Web applications.

This is NOT a matter of "ideology". It is a matter of utter and complete pragmatism.
