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.

and there is a lot of potential for growth and enhancement. Having the browser and mail/news integrated is a good thing as far as I am concerned. And the potiential for a suite that has browser, mailnews, and calender integrated in the right way is just mind boggling: i really believe that if well done, this could become a killer app that will be loved by most company users and many private users. There are many good things in mozilla (ok, there are also some not so good ones, but lets be silent about them in this forum), and having the *option* of getting an integrated suited is one of them. Feel free to download only the browser, but let others enjoy the rest of it!
