Mozilla 1.7 RC 1 Released

Wednesday April 21st, 2004

Asa wrote in to let us know that the first release candidate of Mozilla 1.7 has been released. Mozilla 1.7 reintroduces the Talkback crash reporting system, better GTK2 support, new popup blocking features, and a slew of other new features. A more complete list of changes in all components is available in the Mozilla 1.7 RC 1 Release Notes. Builds can be grabbed from the Releases page, or right from the FTP server.

Mozilla 1.7 is the next stable product branch for Mozilla clients, and it's expected that Firefox 1.0 and a new Thunderbird version will be released off it later this year. Along with that, MozillaZine also expects a summer release of a rebranded Mozilla 1.7 as a Netscape 7.2.

Update: Myk Melez wrote in to tell us that Mozilla 1.7 RC 1 can also be downloaded from the mozilla1.7rc1 directory on, the European Mozilla FTP server.

Promises of money to no avail you still can't paste a clipboard image into an email for a quick message. Netscape 4 had it, thunderbird now has it, but still not in mozilla.

You want to email an image you have to resize it, save as it, click insert image and navigate to it. With others, ie outlook, just resize your image click copy and paste into message, no need to save it or anything. Sigh
