#1 Expected release date?

Is there a schedule for this release? I didn't see anything on the Mozilla roadmap page. It's probably a case of being released when it's ready, but does anybody have any expectations?

BTW, great news on fixing the Corrupt cache/HTTP networking issue. Incomplete page loads have been bugging me ever since I installed 1.3. So much so that I haven't upgraded from 1.2.1 on other machines.

This is only a bugfix release, fixing a few of the glaring problems that crept into the 1.3 release, so it would normally be released when its ready.

The more testing people do on these cadidate builds (and the less problems they find) the quicker 1.3.1 will be officially released (at least this was the case with 1.2.1 which was created for a similar circumstance after DHTML problems with 1.2).

#3 so far, so good

So far, so good.

This will be the second-best Mozilla release ever, after 1.0.

I'm not sure whether 1.4 will be better than 1.0 or not, but it's close, thanks to a lot of the bookmarks stuff being fixed.

#4 Broken Links 1.3

Ever since I installed v1.3 I'm having trouble with broken graphics and general 404 issues. For instance, when I do a quick vote on CNN it comes up File Not Found. Also, graphics links are broken on some sites yet IE loads them fine. Anyone else having problems like this?
