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.

1. ChatZilla is an independant project that has ZERO effect on developing the rest of the project. It's just like the projects on Mozdev except it's hosted on Mozilla.org rather than on Mozdev.

2. Mail News has actually helped the browser rather than hinder it. Outliner was developed by the Mail News team.

The People who aren't being paid to work on Mozilla are doing it because they WANT to. Why do you assume that the people working on non-browser areas will meekly work on the section of the project that intrests you instead of the section they want to work on? Aren't they more likely to leave if you kill the part that intrests them? As for the people who are being paid to work on other sections, why do you assume thier employer will bow to your will and assign them to the browser section rather than assigning them to work on a non-Mozilla project, or even lay them off?

There are people intrested in all of the Mozilla project. How would you like to see a post that complained that Mail was being held back because everybody wasn't forced to download it, and calling for tighter bundling so you couldn't just download the browser?
