Phoenix Nightly Builds Now Available

Thursday September 5th, 2002

Nightly builds of Phoenix are now available for download from ftp.mozilla.org. Builds are currently only available for Linux and Windows.

Phoenix (formerly known as mozilla/browser) is a redesign of the Mozilla browser component. It is not related to Project Piglet (also previously known as mozilla/browser), which was forked from pre-Phoenix mozilla/browser code.

Thanks to Asa Dotzler for the news.

UPDATE! Also check out the Phoenix project page which has some more information about the project.

Well, according to Q3 of the Phoenix Readme page at <http://lxr.mozilla.org/mo…ource/browser/README.html> , it was explicitly stated that bug reports were unwanted. I expect that that is why amutch asked if the developers now wanted bug reports to be submitted.

Also I do not think it is unreasonable to say that it has been a "closed project" which IMO is quite different than saying that it has been a "closed source project." Although it has been open source, it has been closed to bug reports or any other participation from anyone not invited to participate. This is very different from the "open project" of Mozilla which invites everyone to participate in submitting bugs and writing patches.
