Trunk Frozen for Mozilla 1.5 Alpha

Wednesday July 9th, 2003

At midnight Pacific Daylight Time during the night between Tuesday and Wednesday, the main Mozilla development trunk froze in preparation for the release of Mozilla 1.5 Alpha. While the tree is frozen, all checkins to the trunk require approval from drivers@mozilla.org or they will not be allowed to land. The freeze is expected to last for a few days and the trunk will be reopened when Mozilla 1.5 Alpha is released. Note that 1.5a will be a Mozilla Application Suite release as Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird are not yet ready to become the default applications. See the Roadmap for more details about milestone schedules and future development plans.

Actually, if Mozilla was a conventional commercial product then Mozilla 1.4 would have been Mozilla 2.0. Mozilla 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 would have been internal 'milestones' (can't think where I got that word from...) towards Mozilla 2.0. Mozilla 1.5 would then be the first milestone in the progress towards Mozilla 3.0

I wonder if Mozilla.org will have a Mozilla 1.10 (thats one-point-ten, not 1.1.0). If you remember back before Mozilla 1.0, when Netscape 6 was released Mozilla.org was hoping to have Mozilla 0.6, 0.7, 0.8 and 0.9 before Mozilla 1.0. In the end they had up to Mozilla 0.9.9, but not 0.10.0 or 0.9.10. Now I've written that I don't know why I really care :)
