> so what is the difference if your are running 0.7 as opposed to 1.0? If it isn't crashing be happy with it. Uh, the fact that it is crashing - or certianly has been e.g. the infamous 0.6 autocomplete bug in Firebird? The fact that the interface is in a state of flux? The fact that there is no installer and people installing 0.7 found that their scrollbars had disappeared because of theme compatability problems? The fact that the new XUL toolkit has to be stable by 1.0? The fact that there are dozens of other bugs that the developers want to fix before they label their product 1.0 and remove the 'technology preview' disclaimer?
