Mozilla 1.4 Released

Monday June 30th, 2003

Mozilla 1.4 is now available for download! This release offers several enhancements over Mozilla 1.3.1, including NTLM authentication support (Windows only), bookmarks improvements, click-and-drag image and table resizing in Composer, smooth scrolling (disabled by default), junk mail improvements and proxy auto-config failover. See the new-look Mozilla 1.4 Release Notes for more information and grab a build from the mozilla1.4 directory on ftp.mozilla.org.

The Mozilla 1.4 branch is intended to replace the 1.0 branch as a stable baseline for developers to build upon. It is the basis of today's Netscape 7.1 release. In future milestone cycles, changes will be made to both the Mozilla technology and the project's organisation, including a move towards the standalone Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird applications as the main focus of development. See the Mozilla Roadmap for more information.

The installer should perhaps do what Apple does--present the release notes during install, but also exit gracefully if there is a problem. That would be the quick fix.

Crashing and relnoting it is not the optimal solution, although we should read the bug before complaining.

although let me say this: anybody that does not think that extensions of any kind to any program or operating system may not cause problems when upgrading are deluding themselves.

I have never upgraded a Mac operating system (7.x-8.x-9.x-X) without some extension conflict, with the exception of 9.
