This is also the first milestone to include a spellchecker. Grab a build from the mozilla.org Releases Page (or direct from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.5b) and check out the Mozilla 1.5 Beta Release Notes for more information.

Basically, initially 1.5a was going to be together, but we were going to progress towards a FireBird/Phoenix, but it was eventually realized that this transition would take a long time, and it was decided that 1.6 should be the switch (but not nessesarly so either) its a matter of not wanting to delay the normal release cycle of 3 1/2 months between major release. (which means we are due a release in mid september) Personally I'd be willing to wait, but many things changed when the Mozilla Foundation was founded, and now they have to make sure that firebird is feature complete with mozilla before its released.
