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.

#177 Moz 1.0 branches vs. Moz 1.1 alpha branches

I got an interesting question about those two seperate branches. One for 1.0 branches and the other for 1.1 branches. The thought that came to my mind is about add-on, performance & bug-fix. Suppose someone fixed a bug for the 1.0 branches, would this patch also go to the 1.1 branches to fix it also? I mean, it would make more sense to do that so that over the time, the Mozilla get better and better more quickly over the time. Does it work this way? Please let me know! I'm dying to know the answer to this question...
