Full Article Attached Mozilla 1.4 Alpha Coming Soon

Monday March 17th, 2003

Asa Dotzler has posted a message about the forthcoming 1.4 Alpha release to netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey. A number of Mozilla vendors have plans for 1.4 so it is important that both quality and scheduling targets are met in the development cycle. This means that the period between the freeze for 1.4 Alpha and its subsequent release will be days rather than weeks. Right now the freeze is scheduled for midnight on Wednesday 26th March with the release targetted for Friday 28th March.

#3 Windows memory leaks

Ok, while <> greatly helped the situation, I still see massive memory leaks under windows (through 1.3 final; 1.4 hasn't settled down enough yet for me to try, I do watch the checkins daily...)

I do surf using many, many tabs... but after a couple of days, Mozilla's memory usage will have grown to over 100MB. Closing all but the last window and closing all but the last tab will help a little, but not much over all, with memory use still remaining over 100MB.

I've looked around but not found any obvious documentation on how I may help troubleshoot this. The Debug menu item tools don't appear to do much (or I am ignorant in this area at least). Where can I find documentation/debug builds for Windows to help track this down?

Thanks, -Robert
