Mozilla 1.3 Released

Thursday March 13th, 2003

Mozilla 1.3 is now available for download. This release features many Mail & Newsgroups enhancements, including Bayesian spam classification, message views and more sophisticated filtering options. Also new is automatic image resizing, which shrinks large images so that they fit on screen, and you can now switch profiles without restarting (Tools > Switch Profile...). In addition, Mozilla 1.3 offers an initial implementation of Midas, an API that provides rich text editing controls for documents. There's also almost 2,000 other bug fixes. Check out the Release Notes for more information and grab a build from the mozilla.org Releases Page or FTP site.

At a least a profile migration tool would be handy. The annoying thing about installing a new mozilla is that you have to manually copy and install all your addons, settings and plugins. Automating this should be straightforward. Admittedly, some mozdev stuff probably breaks but stuff like cookies, plugin dlls, mail, passwords, bookmarks, etc should be relatively easy to migrate. Everytime I install mozilla it costs me half an hour to get it in the state I want it to be. As a consequence, I hardly ever bother with nightlies because it takes too much time to set everything up.
