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.

That may have something to do with the fact that there is pretty much no one working on the SeaMonkey mailnews UI at the moment.

The person the bug is assigned to is CERTAINLY not working on SeaMonkey. And he _has_ implemented it in the browser he is working on (tbird).

It may help to get the word out that there is a bounty on this bug; that may attract people who would never look at a mailnews bug normally to try and port the thunderbird code....
