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.

Firstly, I really like the email client that's available with Mozilla. I haven't found another free email client for Windows that's anywhere near as good, and I'm very happy one is there. I'm sure once I get MacOS X though, I'll be using the Mail app included with it, as long as there aren't any security problems with it. If there are any problems, having Mozilla Mail around as a backup client is good.

Secondly, the fact you have the option not to install anything other than the browser should mean the issue shouldn't bother you. I doubt having no other components would accelerate the browser development much, or even if many of the people working exclusively on other aspects of Mozilla would instead work on the browser if the other components were discontinued.
