Mozilla 1.0 Released One Year Ago Today

Thursday June 5th, 2003

Today marks the first anniversary of the release of Mozilla 1.0. The release came after four years of development and represented a major milestone in project's history. A party was held in San Francisco's DNA Lounge to celebrate with several other events taking place around the globe. At the time of the launch, guaranteed that the 1.0 branch would continue to be maintained as a long-lived stable baseline for developers to build upon. That promise was followed through with the subsequent releases of 1.0.1 and 1.0.2, and the 1.0 branch will soon be retired in favour of the 1.4 branch, as stated in the new Mozilla Development Roadmap. The new Roadmap also calls for the standalone Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird applications to become the focus of future development and proposes changes to the module ownership model.

The Mozilla 1.0 Start Page is still available, as is MozillaZine's front page from the day of the release.

#3 Support for 1.0x

The reason I ask is that it appears (according to the roadmap linked to in the article) that 1.0x will keep getting updates after 1.4 is released. I see a 1.04 release of Mozilla scheduled at about the same time as 1.5 is released.
