Full Article Attached Mozilla 1.0 Released!

Tuesday June 4th, 2002

Mozilla 1.0 is here! The final 1.0 builds, representing four years of development work by the open source community, are now available for download. The release of Mozilla 1.0 makes an important statement: mozilla.org now believes that the goals specified when the project began (and since enshrined in the Mozilla 1.0 Manifesto) have been met.

Mozilla 1.0 also represents maturity and dependability. Many of the Mozilla APIs, such as XUL, have now been frozen, providing guaranteed compatibility for developers building on the Mozilla toolkit. In addition, mozilla.org will continue to maintain the 1.0 branch as a stable and long-lived baseline on which vendors and other distributors may work. Further additive changes (mainly critical fixes) will be released from the 1.0 branch as 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 etc.

Mozilla 1.0 is available for download from mozilla.org's web site and FTP server. The Mozilla 1.0 Release Notes have also been updated.

MozillaZine would like to thank all the developers, testers, bug reporters, documentation writers, vendors and community members who have helped to make Mozilla such a success. We are proud of our years of service to the Mozilla community and intend to continue providing our growing audience with the latest in Mozilla news and advocacy for years to come.

Really? That's the funniest thing I've heard all day long.

I use mozilla on windows, and it opens quicktime, realplayer and windows media player in mozilla every time without a problem, thanks to the magic of codeweavers' crossover plugin.

To think that realplayer and windows media player actually work better in linux than in windows ... Man oh man ...

Seriously though, it's not the only way in which the windows platform is stubborn. For example, making mozilla mail the default sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't. Not because mozilla does something wrong, but because windows does something wrong. Sometimse you have to go change some setting somewhere in the control panel to assign your mailto links to mozilla mail. Classic microsoft tactics, I suppose.
