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.

SunOS5/SPARC is an "extra" platform?? Does this mean that mozilla is (with all due respect) yet another linux-centric solipsism? From what I can tell, compilation for those not involved in the project (read: me and the others in this thread) is hardly a straightforward matter. Is the source tarball complete? It appears to me to require eg. GTK, which itself isn't available prebuilt. Attempting to build it is a gargantuan task, given all of the other Linux-centric libraries that it turns out to require.

I don't see a release date for 1.0 anywhere, but it's been a week since this thread started.
