Mozilla 1.1 Alpha Released
Tuesday June 11th, 2002
mozilla.org today released the first post-1.0 milestone of Mozilla, Mozilla 1.1 Alpha. This release is coming off the trunk, and is not part of the 1.0 branch. There will likely be a 1.0.1 release off the branch at a later date. (Confused about how milestone numbers work after 1.0? Take a look at the Roadmap for a clearer picture.)
1.1a has a number of performance and UI fixes that took place on the trunk but didn't make it to the branch, like fastloading XUL, improved download manager control, and a number of other fixes. To see a more complete list of what's new, check out the Release Notes, or grab a build for yourself from either the Releases Page or the FTP Site and try it out.

Well, it's true that Mozilla's rendering is fairly stable, but there are still a few remaining bugs in CSS1 support. Additionally, if you are doing CSS layout there is little chance that you will stay entirely within CSS2.
I think it's unlikely that any normal page will work in 1.1 and not 1.0 (or even in Netscape 6) but it is probably just possible. Basically if you're paranoid it might be worth testing, especially if/when a significant number of people begin using Mozilla 1.0 rendering engine. (In other words, if AOL switch to it.)
