Mozilla 1.4 Release Candidate 3 Coming Early Next Week

Friday June 20th, 2003

In a weblog posting, Asa Dotzler has confirmed that there will be a third release candidate of Mozilla 1.4. RC3, which is likely to ship on Monday, will contain fixes for several bugs, including a major memory leak that mainly affects Windows 95/98/ME users. There will also be several Mac OS X improvements. New 1.4 branch builds — which will very likely become the final RC3 binaries — are now available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

Your point is generally a good one, but one thing - this Mozilla 1.4 release won't be the basis for the componentised Mozilla 1.5. Mozilla 1.4 split off from the trunk back on 24th May. All the fixes that go into 1.4 are going into the pre-1.5alpha builds as well, but the state of the 1.4 code does not directly affect Firebird and the future stuff.

Unless something serious crops up with RC3, I don't imagine it will be too much longer - lesser bugs will get pushed out to make a 1.4.1.
