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.

"Shouldn't view Messages as Plain Text/Simple HTML/Normal HTML be in the preferences?"

I don't think so. It's much easier to temporarily switch between views on the menu bar if you have to. Foe example, if you have it set to plain text, and the message doesn't contain a plain text part, you need to switch to one of the HTML views to actually read it.

It'd be massively annoying to have to go all the way into the prefs to modify this to just read one email, then go back and change it back afterwards.
