Phoenix 0.3 Delayed Until Next Week

Wednesday October 9th, 2002

As mentioned by Blake Ross in the Phoenix General forum, Phoenix 0.3 has been delayed until next week. Originally, the plan was to release 0.3 yesterday. The delay means that Phoenix can take advantage of the extra stability offered by the trunk freeze.

In related news, Blake Ross has begun working on Thunderbird (formerly Minotaur), a stand-alone mail client to accompany Phoenix. It is expected that Thunderbird 0.1 will be released around the same time as Phoenix 0.5.

Sometimes it is just better to go back to the drawing board and make new design decisions which affect the entire app. It gives you a clean slate to start from and in this case seems like the right thing to do.

It is not taking away from Mozilla itself because Phoenix or something similar will someday replace the current Navigator in Moz. Integration is overrated if it kills other features and functionality.
