Mozilla 1.1 Alpha Released

Tuesday June 11th, 2002 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.

Sure. Deleting entries now no longer takes forever. There are many fewer cases in which download manager shows completely bogus data. The display (progressmeters) actually updates correctly. There are no longer continuous attempts to stat() files on disk when you click them in the download manager.

There are more, but I don't actually use download manager so I can't recall what the other fixes are and don't care enough to look it up.

A simple query on bugs in the "Download Manager" component fixed in the 1.1 cycle should show you what the changes have been....
