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.

It still (in some cases) favours lesser pages over the main page of a website. Eg it may favour "<http://www.someplace.com/dir/foo/bar/article.html>" over "<http://www.someplace.com>" when I type in "www.som". This is frustrating, because the benefits of autocompletion are totally lost when I have to either type in the entire url or accept the suggested url and delete half of it. This is especially annoying if I often frequent <http://www.someplace.com> and the location bar history is full of pages on that site.
