Branch Cut for Mozilla Firebird 0.8

Wednesday December 17th, 2003

A branch has been created for the forthcoming release of Mozilla Firebird 0.8. The branch will allow Firebird 0.8 work to continue without the uncertainty caused by the daily changes made to the main Mozilla development trunk (currently frozen for Mozilla 1.6). However, critical trunk fixes will be merged into the new Firebird 0.8 branch.

Nightly builds from the branch will be available soon. They will feature a new mechanism for handling files served with a text/plain MIME type and new front end for XPInstall (the code used for installing things like extensions). Read Ben Goodger's post to the Firebird General forum for more information about the 0.8 branch.

It annoys me when a webserver does not have the correct MIME types set. I think it shows the ignorance of some server admins. It's not a problem to IE so they don't know a problem even exists. I had a problem with msi files on a website I maintain at work being sent with text/plain. I asked to have it fixed and now it works correctly for gecko browsers.

But I didn't notice this problem when testing because my test server happened to be setup correctly beings it's IIS.
