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."
#2 Time and priority distribution?

I wonder what the relative priorities for trunk and branch work are for the mozilla staff people, especially those who are needed by contributors (drivers, module owners how do r, sr, user interface experts etc.). Is there a strategy how manpower should/will be distributed between the two?
