Trunk Freezes for 1.4 Alpha Tonight
Tuesday March 25th, 2003
To prepare for the impending 1.4 Alpha release, the main Mozilla development tree will freeze at 11:59pm tonight (Pacific Standard Time). While the trunk is frozen, only checkins that have been approved by email@example.com will be allowed to land. The tree will be reopened when Mozilla 1.4 Alpha is released (the current ideal release date is this Friday). See tinderbox and the Mozilla Development Roadmap for more information.

"As I am all for 1.4 coming out this friday, can anyone tell me why 1.3 and 1.4 will be released so close together?"
Well, they won't be really. Remember this is only 1.4 Alpha, not final.
"I do realize that the trunk for 1.4 has been open for a long time, but what is so important about this release? Many have speculated that this is an important release for Embeders... is this true?"
If it is, it will be important because embedders want it to be important, rather than mozilla.org just deciding it is (of course, mozilla.org will work with embedders to help Mozilla 1.4 meet their needs).
