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.

I've read through what's new and I am a bit confused.

Download manager has been enabled with "many improvements". However, I don't see any improvements at all.

DHTML performance enhancements are in, but I am not sure what they are.

They claim startup performance enhancements, but I don't see it at all.

Browser tabs now close left to right - nice.

Mozilla's drag and drop support "has been greatly improved" - I am not sure what that means.
