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.

"The reason that I entered the conversation was because I felt that the initial response to amutch's question was unfairly critical of his use of the word "closed." He was correct that Phoenix had previously not accepted bugs and he had a very valid question since the README still indicated that bugs were not being accepted."

He was correct that there was a time when phoenix developers were't soliciting bug reports for the Phoenix UI. This was because bug reports wouldn't have been useful. There was never a time when bug reports on the vast majority of phoenix code weren't being solicited. There were a few files among tens of thousands in Phoenix where bug reports and other participation wasn't being solicited. Equating that with "closed" and the following suggestions that Phoenix was a "closed" project is something that I don't accept and I said so. Phoenix, from the moment of the first checkin was more open than almost any software project on the planet.
