Full Article Attached Trunk Freezes for 1.4 Beta Tonight

Tuesday April 22nd, 2003

The trunk will freeze for 1.4 Beta just after midnight tonight (Pacific Daylight Time). During the freeze, only checkins approved by will be allowed to land. The tree will remain closed until the 1.4 branch is created, at which point the shift towards Firebird and Thunderbird will begin. The 1.4 branch is intended to replace the 1.0 branch as the stable development path, so several release candidates are expected. The ideal release dates for 1.4 Beta and 1.4 final are this Friday and Wednesday 21st May respectively. Read the updated Roadmap if you still don't get it. As always, tinderbox will give you the latest tree status.

Please, for the love of all that's good and holy, fix this DOM regression. I was trying to make a XUL game and do some other fun stuff, but something got completely broken last August and still AFAIK hasn't been fixed. My "test cases" worked great in 1.0.x but in more recent builds they're just screwed up.


I think Mozilla+XUL has a real possibility as a platform for cross-platform edutainment software, but this bug makes that *completely* impractical. I can't believe no one else has been seriously bitten by it, but there are very few comments attached.
