Mozilla 1.6 Released

Friday January 16th, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation released Mozilla 1.6 yesterday, the first new milestone of the year. This latest version features several Mail & Newsgroups improvements, including vCard support, a preference to remove mail from a POP server after x days, a setting that places the user's signature above the quoted text when replying to a message and optional separate Recipient and Sender columns in the thread pane. In addition, NTLM authentication is now supported on all platforms, the automatic page translation function has been restored and several stability and security bugs have been fixed. The Gecko rendering engine has received a lot of attention in this release cycle, leading to improvements in standards compliance and faster page load times than ever before.

Mozilla 1.6 builds are available for a variety of platforms from the Releases page and the mozilla1.6 directory on More information is available in the Mozilla 1.6 Release Notes.

#13 Stable or unstable?

I've downloaded and installed Mozilla 1.6 and if I go to <> I read “You've downloaded (or compiled) a copy of Mozilla. This means that you've volunteered to become part of the Mozilla testing community. (If that doesn't sound like something you meant to do, you might be better off with one of our stable releases.)”

So I ask: Did I choose the wrong version (an unstable one) or is this happening to everybody, thus showing clearly a bug in the Mozilla web site?
