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.

Having separate pieces of apps does not have to be an advantage, some users, including me, prefer "all-in-one" package, like new Opera 7.50P1. Why? I love Firebird .7, but with Opera I have email, RSS reader, browser, contacts, transfers, notes, etc., all under one, single, opened window, just in different MDI pages, switching easily between them. If sending an email to a site I am browsing, I do not have to start another email program, the email window will open in 0.01 seconds... THis makes browsing so much faster. I would love to see an interface to Mozilla Suite that makes this possible. Having separate apps means you need much more time to do simple tasks!
