Mozilla 1.4 to Feature Reorganised Release Notes

Thursday June 26th, 2003

Asa Dotzler has announced that the Mozilla Release Notes are to be reorganised and given a partial rewrite. Referencing Zach Lipton's recent thoughts on the matter, Asa describes how the release notes will be divided into several files, including a what's new document, an installation guide and a list of known issues. A lot of the older and less important information will also be removed. It is hoped that these changes will be made in time for the release of Mozilla 1.4 on Monday.

You're quite right on the "this isn't a changelog" thing. I actually gave a similar answer myself a few days ago when someone asked a similar question. Dunno what I was thinking...

The second point wasn't entirely serious... but I'm not sure how much useful feedback we are getting from those folks. I'm not sure the pools do need expanding, but we do need better feedback mechanisms. Currently the primary 'official' feedback mechanism is bugzilla, and even if people can figure out how to use it, most bugs don't even get looked at by a QA person, let alone a developer. The forums have some useful feedback in them, but there's no guarantee that it gets seen by anyone that can do anything with it...
