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.

Is this noted somewhere on the web because this will be quite a wake up call for those incorrect MIME types out there?

Also I'm wondering what's next for IE. Just out of curiousity because I don't use it. Some were saying IE 6 sp2 but now I hear as you say IE 6.05 for XP in its sp2. So the other OS's (2000/98/ME) are up the creek or will they get an sp2 for IE 6?
