Trunk Freezes for 1.2 Alpha Tonight

Tuesday September 3rd, 2002

The main development trunk will be frozen at 11:59pm tonight Pacific Daylight Time and will remain frozen until 1.2 Alpha is released. While the freeze is in effect, all checkins to the trunk will require approval from drivers@mozilla.org. Like 1.1 Alpha and 1.1 Beta, 1.2 Alpha will probably be released directly off the trunk with no branching beforehand. The ideal release date is Friday 6th September, though this may change. See the Roadmap for more details about release plans and tinderbox for the current status of the trunk.

Yes Mozilla is moving fassst when it comes to versioning, but I still think there are too many very visible bugs that need to be fixed for Mozilla to be considered a truely complete product. I love Mozilla, but I cannot really give it 10/10.

For eg, in Mozilla Mail, the message count is screwed up. My trash had 12 new messages. I deleted all of them. But it still says 11 new messages! This has happened before with my Inbox. It is very random. Somehow it fixed itself the first time.

As everyone knows Mozilla seems to suck when it comes to DHTML. It seems to do it very slowly. I think the speed should be vastly improved. Just go take a look at <http://www.dhtmlcentral.com.> There are other things like this that can tick of the casual user.

We have to think, why would anyone want to use Mozilla? We ned to provide some compelling reasons for people to switch. As it is the slow startup times are a turn off. But that cannot be helped since IE is so tied into Windows. Tabbed browsing, popup killing are great features, but they are already available in Opera, NetCaptor. Mozilla needs some more killer features if it hopes to make people switch.

Personally, I have been experimenting Mozilla for a long long time...since M14! But I have becoime a regulat user of Mozilla since 0.9. I have seen some remarkable improvements when it comes to stability in Mozilla. Overall you guys are doing a great job, but you can do better.
