Asa Dotzler writes: "The first Phoenix milestone, 0.1, has been released. Phoenix is a redesign of the Mozilla browser component, similar to Galeon, K-Meleon and Chimera, but written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform. This first Phoenix release includes great new features like a customizable toolbar and quicksearch filtering for bookmarks and history. See the Phoenix release notes for more information or go directly to the builds."

I thought that I remebered an announcement or post where someone (who?) wrote something to that effect. Must have been wrong. Sorry.

What part of the trunk? I mean as a user you see only the outside which uses a different skin. Personally, I'm happy with Modern and would like it to stay. Will it go away when Phoenix "replaces the trunk"?

I'm not sure if I understand what and how it will be replaced. Is it intended to be Mozilla 2.0? Seems the Phoenix differences will kill custom skins and add-ons.
