Trunk Frozen for 1.1 Beta
Wednesday July 10th, 2002
The main development trunk was frozen today in preparation for the release of Mozilla 1.1 Beta. Until the trunk is reopened, only approved fixes can be checked in. To get approval for a patch, mail firstname.lastname@example.org with "[trunk approval]" in the subject. The ideal release date for 1.1 Beta is Wednesday 17th July (though, as usual, this is not set in stone).

They may eventually cut it, right now I think having a 1.0 branch and the 1.1 trunk is enough to deal with. Once it does branch new features will be going in for 1.2 further dilluting the workload, in pre 1.0 days they would generally freeze and then cut 3 or 4 days later. Its really drivers decision right now, hopefully the right comprimise will be made.
