Phoenix 0.2 Release Set for Tomorrow

Monday September 30th, 2002

Blake Ross writes: "The Phoenix team is targeting a 0.2 milestone for tomorrow, October 1st. Please bang on the nightlies. 0.2 will feature a ton of new stuff, including a replacement for Mozilla's Form Manager, a redesigned Sidebar, a redesigned Download Manager (available as a Sidebar panel), improved toolbar customization (you can now add space and flexible space and a bunch of new buttons), an add-on manager, and a new search/find-in-page bar. Importing of bookmarks has been fixed, too."

Before filing bugs, take heed of Blake's advice: "If the issue seems obvious, we probably already know about it! For example, yes — we know that many of the new buttons are missing icons in some or all modes. We are desperately in need of an artist."

Yeah, I think he means 'interesting UI'.

It's a shame that the backend doesn't get the same glory as the UI. People expect it to 'just work', and only tend to notice changes in the UI. It makes sense because, well, it it the _User Interface_, but a shame nonetheless.

I've been following a few DHTML perf bugs recently, and _that_ backend work _is_ visible. I'm seriously impressed by the recent improvements.
