Phoenix Nightly Builds Now Available

Thursday September 5th, 2002

Nightly builds of Phoenix are now available for download from 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.

"Yes, and that's by design but calling it "closed" is wrong."

I do not see how you can say it is WRONG to refer to Phoenix as a "closed project" when Phoenix was not accepting any bugs, or patches, or even user comments. Even now that bugs and patches are being accepted, it is apparent that user comments are still rather unwelcome. I also get the feeling that RFE bugs directed at Phoenix are going to have a high rate of WONTFIX or INVALID status. This is very different from the traditional openness of the Mozilla project.

Note that the word "closed" does not only mean "closed source" and it was clear from the context in which amutch said "closed project" that he was not referring to the source code.

If it is wrong to have referred to Phoenix as having been a "closed project" then what would you have preferred? Would it have been ok to say that it was a "limited access project" or what?
