Full Article Attached Major Roadmap Update Centers Around Phoenix, Thunderbird; 1.4 Branch to Replace 1.0; Changes Planned for Module Ownership Model

Wednesday April 2nd, 2003

In the most radical change to the Mozilla project since the late 1998 decision to rewrite much of the code, mozilla.org today announced a major new roadmap proposal that will see Phoenix and Thunderbird (also known as Minotaur) becoming the focus of future development. According to the roadmap, 1.4 is likely to be the last milestone of the traditional Mozilla suite and the 1.4 branch will replace the 1.0 branch as the stable development path. mozilla.org is also proposing changes to the module ownership model including a move towards stronger leadership and the removal of mandatory super-review in some cases.

I gues Microsoft is now laughing and writing down 3 - 0 in favor of IE on their browser board.

How can I say something like this here ? Well.. IE has nearly looked the same in alot of years... new features but it is still same old IE GUI. When Mozilla.org do this kind of big changes it also means a failure in creating a competitive browser against IE.

I guess I'm not the only one here that thinks that Mozilla today eats alot of memory and may not be the fastest browser to startup on the market. Se for example Safari, K-Meleon, Galeon ...

But I also think this was a good step to move on to the next generation of the Mozilla project but it's still a failure in one way when you think about it.

But lets forget about that and welcome Phoenix (though my project EasySearch will be shut down :( beacuse of the built in feature)
