Mozilla 1.4.1 Released

Saturday October 11th, 2003

A minor update to Mozilla 1.4 has been released. Mozilla 1.4.1 contains around 100 additional bug fixes but no new features. Windows users who had installer problems with Mozilla 1.4 or experienced display resource issues will be especially interested in this build, which is available for all platforms. Download Mozilla 1.4.1 from the mozilla.org Releases page or direct from the download site (http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.4.1/ if you're using HTTP; ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.4.1/ if you're using FTP). More information can be found in the Mozilla 1.4.1 Release Notes.

Update: Thanks to Daniel Wang for reminding us that Mozilla 1.4.1 includes a spellchecker, a feature not present in 1.4.

according to <http://www.mozilla.org/re…illa1.4.1/README.html#new>

" 'Launch file' after downloading has been enabled for .exe files" is in the "new features and fixes" category.

is that more innocuous than it sounds? is it a just a preference that is now available? or is it a preference that is now defaulting to execution?

it seems like a bad idea to let executables run automatically on download. i personally always virusscan them before running them.
