Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 Released

Monday July 28th, 2003

mozilla.org has just released a minor upgrade to their Mozilla Firebird 0.6 milestone, to fix a few key issues regarding security and stability, including the autocomplete crash. Builds are now available, and the 0.6.1 Release Notes and other documentation are being pushed to the site currently.

We expect a 0.7 release to happen later in the Summer, and hope for a 1.0 prior to the end of the year. More information is available about the release plan in the Roadmap doc.

Update: After a short delay, the Mac OS X release of Firebird 0.6.1 is now available from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firebird/releases/0.6.1.

This 0.6.1 doesn't know how to handle some sites w. bad MIME types, like members.aol.com and others I've come across. This regression makes it impossible for me to recommend it to most friends, and I certainly will be inconvenienced by it enough that I'll need to skip this milestone. I seriously hope the option to toggle auto-scrolling will be implemented on the trunk soon enough before other new bugs hit that I'll be able to enjoy the many other enhancements contained in this release.
