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).

As I understand it, 1.1 should be just as stable as 1.0. Perhaps 1.0 was slightly different, given the extra level of care taken over it for obvious reasons (both of publicity and for 'we've waited this long, another week won't kill us' thoughts) but as a rule 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 should be equivalently stable.
I'm not sure about 2.0, however. I guess as some point there will be a new branch, effectively creating a new trunk, where major changes, including in architecture (including XUL changes, not just additions) will happen, and after much development this will become 2.0. But, given that this will be a different platform, the two strands will live on separately, much as Gnome 1 will do even once Gnome 2 is established.
What they won't be, however, is as stable as 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3 etc., which are basically exactly like 1.0 but with added polish and any later issues ironed out.
But as you say, there is a lot of confusion abounding - I could well be wrong.
