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.

Then put it in the "About" window.
The look of a product is very important. Putting the build info in the titlebar makes Mozilla look incomplete, like its still a work in progress.
All software is a work in progress, but the point of major version releases is that they set you up for quite some time. People downloading version 1.0 shouldn't worry that they need to go get a new build next week. If you're going to put any number up there, put the version number.
Mozilla is a very polished project. I'm just sorry to see they left one last glaring smudge right at the top of the window.
