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: 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, 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'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.

Um, um, I have seen this diagram of the branches before. Thought I saw it in the past that showed the branches diagram that look like a tree with each branches breaking off. Whatever is at the end of the branch would be a release or a maintainance release that 3rd party can add on to it. Like Netscape 7.0 PR1 as an example. So, it prompted me to wonder about the bug fix as oppose to whether would the patches work well would it go into the trunk as well. Now, I saw this diagram again and it is not what I thought. :-) I would love to find bugs and write a patches in my own free time but I would have to know how to keep up with it. Is there a better or a good instruction for that?

Thanks, FletchSOD
