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 drivers@mozilla.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).

1.0.1 will be from the 1.0 branch and will only contain critical fixes (for crash bugs and security flaws) and other low-risk "additive" changes (such as the 'New Tab' button on the tab bar). All checkins to the branch are approved by <drivers@mozilla.org> to maintain stability.

1.1, on the other hand, will come from the trunk. Most of the new development work is focussed on the trunk, so 1.1 will contain larger changes such as new features. Checkins to the branch aren't as strictly controlled (though approval from <drivers@mozilla.org> is required during the freeze before milestone releases such as 1.1 Alpha and 1.1 Beta).

So, yes, 1.1 will be more up to date in that it will have more risky changes in it. Of course, some changes that appear in 1.1 will also be in 1.0.1.
