Friday December 13th, 2002

Mozilla 1.3 Alpha is out!

There's also improvements to the DOM Inspector and lots of other bug fixes. However, remember that this is only an alpha release, so expect bugs.

You are replying to this message

" For the one who just needs a stable stable stable and quite well polished browser/mail client/composer/addressbook there is the 1.0.x branch. I personally love to see feature progress in the 1.x trunk"

Who wants to use 1.0x though? In downgrading to 1.0x you lose a lot more than speed.

"Mozillazine community seems to dislike 'progress' in features at all. "

That's just not true, and you obviously don't know much about the people here who have been using and testing Mozilla for a long time. Most people here at the Mozillazine love progress and cool new features. You must not come here often to believe something like that. But like I pointed out, right now we are at a point where there are some ancient bugs needing fixing and possbily some regressions causing stabilty problems. These need to be fixed before we move on and my post isn't about what you accuse me of.
