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 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.

IIRC, asa and other developers has said several times that the major version number will only change when the APIs for embedders changes significantly. Just like in other big projects such as Linux, glibc, gcc and Apache.

The Appsuite -> Firebird change doesn't break any APIs.
