eWeek Reports on New Mozilla Roadmap

Wednesday April 30th, 2003

Peter Lairo wrote in to tell us that eWeek has a report about the new Mozilla Development Roadmap. The article, which is mostly accurate, outlines the changes proposed in the new plan and evaluates their likely effects. eWeek describes the new strategy as "overwhelmingly positive" but does express concern that the stronger module ownership model could slow down innovation.

If you answer politely. Obviously Mozilla Thunderbird will still be able to compose html email, and there will probably be a way to pass off a document to whatever composer turns into (I recall the roadmap being pretty vauge about composer, although that might be my faliure to read it correctly). I know that, you know that, so why not just say 'composing html email in Mozilla Thunderbird will still be possible'. It's painful to watch Mozilla-Firebird fanatics flame people who express a use for the integrated suite features and moreover, it doesn't help anyone. Thumperaward did the same thing when Johann_P suggested that integrated 'communhication centre' type applications will become increasingly common - it was totally unnecessary and gives the impression that a lot of the Mozilla Firebird users are petty children who can't see anyone else's point of view or at best rabid Mozilla haters.
