Full Article Attached Classic Mac OS Build Likely to be Retired and Removed from Tree

Thursday January 9th, 2003

We've previously reported that the Classic Mac OS build of Mozilla is transitioning to port status but now it looks like the build could be removed from the tree altogether. In a posting to netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey, Asa Dotzler has announced that no maintainer for the Mac Classic port has been found. If nobody steps forward by next Wednesday, the Classic Mac OS build will be removed from CVS.

In related news, is also moving the Mac OS X nightly and milestone builds from FizzillaCFM to FizzillaMach. This change will reap several performance benefits and will also make the builds easier to maintain. It is hoped that this transition will be complete in time for the release of Mozilla 1.3.

"Also, just the fact that BSD supports three button mouses and was reduced to one clunky one by Apple is enough to make you scream." OS X supports multi-button mice. I have one I would know.

Your statement is only partly true. New mac systems only ship with a one button mouse. Third party mouses are necessary to gain full three button mouse support. This is just plain stupid. Apple needs to grow up and realize that the two button mouse is not seen as more complicated by computer users. Just their cheap one button strange rocker design that is clunky and a tired design.
