Phoenix 0.3 Coming Soon

Friday October 11th, 2002

Blake Ross writes in with information on the upcoming Phoenix release: "Please bang on the current Phoenix nightlies and help us shake out any last minute bugs. We hope to release Phoenix 0.3 as soon as Monday and need as many eyes on the builds as possible. Areas that could use some real hammering on include bookmarks and the bookmarks toolbar, pop-up controls, toolbar customization, autocomplete and tabbed browsing. Thanks!"

"IMHO many of the (radical) changes should have been made in Mozilla directly."

Go for it. This is open source. You're free to make a stab at porting those changes over to Mozilla. The developers working on Phoenix, however, aren't interested in working on the monolithic Mozilla application suite. Would you have them stop working on Phoenix and go join some other open source project or spend all their time working on closed source projects for companies like apple or microsoft?

"I would prefer if Phoenix were treated as a "test platform" for experimental work, solely intended for then re-implementing the new code back into Mozilla."

I wouldn't. And neither would the developers working on Phoenix.
