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.

The article makes it sound like they've actually come up with a plan on how to move Firebird in as the main browser. This is what the roadmap has to say about it:

"It's clear now that we will not be able to switch to Mozilla Firebird by the Mozilla 1.5 final milestone. Instead, we expect Mozilla 1.5 to coincide with Mozilla Firebird 0.7. But we intend to implement the new application architecture in the next several milestones, till most of the community is won over to the new apps."
