Tree Branches for Mozilla 1.7

Wednesday April 14th, 2004

On Monday, the new Mozilla 1.7 branch was cut from the trunk, in preparation for the final release of Mozilla 1.7 in mid-May. As well as 1.7, the branch will also provide the foundation for Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and several other Mozilla-based applications. Post-1.7, the new branch will replace 1.4 as the stable development baseline. Checkins to the branch require approval from — the trunk, meanwhile, is now open for 1.8 Alpha development work.

Your assumption is incorrect - the beta is released from the trunk, and then the branch is cut for final. The trunk is frozen from just before the beta, so only important/low-risk changes go into the trunk until the branch is cut (and then of course only important/low-risk changes go onto the branch)
