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.


#14 GTK+ 2 Builds?

Just wondering if there are any GTK+ 2 builds out there for FireBird 0.6.1. After using Xft and GTK+ 2 builds for months, there is no way I'm going back to old clunky aliased text on Linux. BTW, shouldn't that be the default for Linux now that all modern distributions include GTK2 support?

If Mozilla.org started distributing Xft + GTK 2 nightlies I would probably go back to using the latest nightly every day, just like I did back in the Mozilla 0.8 days...
