See bug 174647 to track the bugs that drivers consider important to the success of Mozilla 1.2. You can check the latest status of both the branch and trunk by using tinderbox.

Is that always a bad thing? It's not uncommon in software firms to have separate teams working on different versions of a product. For instance, while IE 3 was in development, Microsoft had teams already working on IE 4 and IE 5. I see Phoenix, Thunderbird, and the like as forming the foundation for a push toward Mozilla 2.0.
