Mozilla 1.5 Release Candidate 2 Out

Friday September 26th, 2003

The second release candidate of Mozilla 1.5 is now available for download. This new test build contains around twenty fixes that were not in Release Candidate 1, including a new preference for specifying whether opening a bookmark group should replace the existing tabs or append the new pages to the current set. As usual, builds can be downloaded from the mozilla.org Releases page or direct from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.5rc2. Consult the Mozilla 1.5 Release Candidate 2 Release Notes for more information and look out for the final version of Mozilla 1.5 in the first week of October.

"putting the signature above the quoted text would make some users, who have configured their email clients to strip anything after the leading "-- " of the signature, never see the quotation"

Actually, I believe that the top posting patch turns off the "--" for that very reason. I forced my mother to switch to Mozilla Mail from Outlook Express and she threw a hissy fit about not being able to top post. The user should be allowed to shoot him/herself in the foot if he or she desires to do so. She wanted to go back to OE after learning of that "bug" and I had to persuade her to stay with Mozilla.

I would prefer a million people top posting with Mozilla to a 950,000 top posting with OE/Outlook and 50,000 "converted".
