Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Released

Friday October 31st, 2003

The Mozilla Foundation has just released Mozilla 1.6 Alpha, the first milestone of the 1.6 development cycle. Amongst its other enhancements, 1.6a features many Mail & Newsgroups improvements, including vCard support, an option to remove mail from a POP server after x days and a preference for placing the user's signature above quoted text when composing an email or newsgroup posting. For more information, see the Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Release Notes. This latest release can be downloaded from the Releases page or directly from the mozilla1.6a directory on

Update: The original Windows builds did not contain the Personal Security Manager, which enables encryption for services such as HTTPS and secure IMAP. This error has now been corrected and new builds are available. Windows users who have had problems accessing secure Web pages or using other secure Internet protocols should re-download.

I would assume that no particular work is in progress unless you see recent comments to that effect in the bug.

My guess would be that this functionality would be best suited as an extension, rather than a core part of TB. I agree that it's very useful functionality though, so I think it would be good to see it as an in-house developed, supported, and recommended extension. But it does seem like an 'icing on the cake' feature so I wouldn't think it should be treated as a priority until TB nears 1.0.
