Trunk Freezes for Mozilla 1.5 Beta

Wednesday August 6th, 2003

A few hours ago, the main Mozilla development trunk froze in preparation for Mozilla 1.5 Beta. During the freeze, only fixes approved by drivers@mozilla.org will be allowed to land. The freeze will remain in effect until the 1.5 final branch is cut, currently scheduled for Friday 29th August. The ideal release date for Mozilla 1.5 Beta is this Friday. See the milestone schedule section of the Roadmap for more details.

Any Gecko/Necko hackers know if darins dns rewrite is slated for inclusion before 1.5 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=205726>

I doubt it. As beta is almost here, it's hard to see such a risky update be allowed into the branch or trunk before 1.5 is released.

Mozilla 1.5 Alpha used the old codebase - will 1.5 Beta be based on Firebird?

Enquiring minds want to know. Basically I like the 1.4 UI, I haven't tried Firebird but I know it's different, so I don't want it until I'm ready to explore a new interface.

Don't worry. Firebird 0.7 will come out with Mozilla 1.4.

Sorry for the spam, but obviously I meant 1.5. Blake said recently Firebird 1.0 is still a year away, so...

#3 It's amazing.

It's amazing how fast we see the changes and the development is goin' faster than ever... i remember see 1.2 or 1.3 being several weeks on testing, development and such things... in less than a month i saw many changes and additions like new calendar, Firebird 0.6.1, Thunderbird... :).

#4 It is the mozilla suite...

I believe we Mozilla should have longer milestones since we lost developers and bugs are not so quickly fixed as earlier (just remeber a year ago!).

So the cycle must be at least 6 weeks between release -> alfa, alfa -> beta, beta -> release.

So in which release will FireBird become Mozilla?

Another year for Firebird to go 1.0 seems long. Seems like it is close. A few bug fixes and performance tunes and maybe take out some of the extraneous features.

IIRC Blake said that Firebird 1.0 would be out at the end of THIS year.
