Mozilla 1.0.2 Released

Wednesday January 8th, 2003

mozilla.org has released Mozilla 1.0.2, a stability and security follow-up to 1.0 and 1.0.1. The latest release from the stable 1.0 branch, Mozilla 1.0.2 is not a features release and is recommended only for consumers who have a good reason not to upgrade to the more recent Mozilla 1.2.1 or Mozilla 1.3 Alpha.

Mozilla 1.0.2 can be downloaded from mozilla.org's Stable Releases page or direct from the FTP server. More information can be found in the Mozilla 1.0.2 Release Notes.

Reason for its existence? It exists because the Mozilla codebase has more than one catagory of consumer. Reasons to use it? That depends on what type of Mozilla consumer you are.

If you're using 1.0 or 1.0.1 and you don't want all the new 1.1 and 1.2 features but you do want something with some targeted bugfixes then maybe 1.0.2 is for you. If you are building a product based on Mozilla 1.0 branch code and you don't want to have to make radical changes to new APIs or incorporate (or discorporate) large hunks of new trunk code then maybe the 1.0.2 code is for you.

There are a number of reasons you might want to use the 1.0 branch code or releases but if you have to ask then you probably should be using the lastest stable trunk milestone, Mozilla 1.2.1 <http://www.mozilla.org/releases/#1.2.1>

You might find my comments from the last time this question was asked to be of some use. <http://www.mozillazine.or…viewtopic.php?p=5297#5297>
