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.

That's not happening. What is happening is continued development on the Mozilla trunk (the branch that will eventually become 2.0) and continued development on the 1.0 branch (from where we'll see 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3, etc. releases). On the trunk we'll be taking high risk changes, new features, refactoring/rewriting of components, etc. We're going to try to limit these high impact changes to the 1.1alpha, 1.2alpha, 1.3alpha, etc. cycles so that we can recover in the 1.1beta, etc. cycle with a good 1.xfinal release coming about once a quarter. On the 1.0 branch we will be taking safer, lower risk fixes with the goal of never destabilizing the branch such that an organization intending to do a release from the branch should be able to pull code regularly and not have it be broken (that won't be the case with the trunk, especially during the alpha and beta cycles.) There is no need for a 2.0 branch.
