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.

More or less. What basically happens is this:
Changes are checked into trunk.
If a trunk change is safe, doesn't break the compatibility requirements for a branch, and is useful in a branch, it is checked into that branch.
The 1.0 branch and the 1.1 branch have different criteria for checkins. 1.0 must have frozen APIs, etc. Anything that would cause any problems with third-party addons, from Komodo to Netscape to SkyPilot, can't go on the 1.0 branch. 1.1, on the other hand, is a milestone on the road to 2.0 (if I understand the way it works correctly).
But IANAMD. (I am not a Mozilla developer.)
