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 drivers@mozilla.org — the trunk, meanwhile, is now open for 1.8 Alpha development work. Consult tinderbox for the latest tree status.

"On Monday, the new Mozilla 1.7 branch was cut from the trunk"

I had assumed that this had happened a long time ago. After all I'm using Mozilla 1.7b dated 16th March. I assumed that 1.7 branch would be cut and then the 'cut' branch would go beta and final. Where then did my Mozilla 1.7b come from? The trunk?
