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."

no. patches are made to the trunk and then sometimes also added to the branch. the trunk takes all fixes and the branch takes a subset of all fixes deemed safe enough for the stable branch.
