Mozilla 1.3 Alpha Released

Friday December 13th, 2002

Mozilla 1.3 Alpha is out! This release introduces shedloads of new Mail & Newsgroups features (including Bayesian spam classification, message views and improved filtering), a new Bookmarks Quick Search bar (similar to the one found in Phoenix) and support for the Back and Forward buttons on the IntelliMouse Explorer. 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.

Builds are available from mozilla.org's Releases Page or directly from the FTP site. Check out the Release Notes for more info.

Did you train a large number of known bad and known good mail? I trained about 5,000 spam messages and about 15,000 not spam messages when I first moved to the builds with bayesian filtering (I was saving up spam in a special folder in anticipation of the new feature). I get about 500 messages a day and lately I'm getting about 90% success in flagging spam with not one false positive to date.
