Full Article Attached Brendan Eich Discusses Future Roadmap Plans

Tuesday April 27th, 2004

In a newsgroup posting, Brendan Eich has given some details about how he sees Mozilla development progressing over the next year or so. Brendan envisages the Mozilla Application Suite being retired to a branch within the next twelve months, with the standalone applications (Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird) continuing development on the trunk. After SeaMonkey has been retired, more far-reaching changes will be made to the Mozilla APIs, breaking compatibility with 1.x in places and eventually leading to Mozilla 2.0. The message, posted as part of a discussion about the staff meeting minutes of Monday 5th April, reflects Brendan's own opinions and not everything has been agreed with drivers.

>>Worst idea till now. I suspect whoever came up with it is aiming to get on the MS payroll. You sound like a troll. But I know your not.

I feel your pain. What I don't think you realize is that there is a place for Firefox on the market. I'm getting sick of Suite users groaning and moaning about Firefox while they still have the suite around, yes, when the suite retires there WILL be a problem, and this needs to be addressed by so as not to loose it's current userbase.

In the mean time ENJOY the suite and stop bitching about a product that your not even using.
