Mozilla 1.1alpha Coming Soon
Monday June 10th, 2002
In a posting to netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey, Asa Dotzler says, "We've taken somewhere in the neighborhood of 1700 fixes on the Mozilla development trunk since 1.0 was branched about two months ago. These fixes include a few new features and other 'heavy lifting'. If all goes well with testing, the 2002-06-10 evening builds or the 2002-06-11 early morning builds will be released as 1.1 Alpha in the next day or two.
"1.1a is not a Mozilla 1.0 bugfix follow-up. That will be called 1.0.1 and will contain the limited and more conservative work currently underway with the 1.0 branch. See <http://www.mozilla.org/roadmap.html#tree-management> for a picture of what this looks like.
"This 1.1a release is from the less conservative (and probably less stable) Mozilla development trunk and is intended as a checkpoint for gathering feedback and crash data. So if you use these Alpha builds be warned that they are unlikely to be as stable as Mozilla 1.0 or the upcoming 1.0.x releases. But the 1.1a releases will have new features and big improvements to performance so give them a try and don't forget to send in any TalkBack reports."
I just mean that it seems to pause sometimes. What I think I'm actually seeing, though, is that the rest of the app pauses while Necko is trying to download things. This shows up particularly while switching windows. If one window is slowly downloading a page, and I switch to a new window, the second window might not come to focus until the first window begins to display. I see this with HTTP/1.1, both with and without pipelining. Is that Necko?
