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.

I know you were being rhetorical, but I have to wonder why Sun/Netscape don't seem the least bit concerned. They're kind of doing Microsoft's anti-Java job for them. I'm a long-time Unix and Java developer, but I still recognize when an installation process is broken WRT the masses. Sun seems to've given up on Java everywhere but the server, sadly.

PS. when searching on google for this, a Deutsche forum came up, called Java-Horror. Sadly, have to agree- the skills needed to solve this problem aren't part of Computer Literacy 101.
