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.

The only enjoyable thing about Firefox is the graphics. Nice work. Import them into the suite, then trash the rest. There is no need for all that modularity - it's giving end users a giant headache, updating 25 extentions each time they upgrade the browser...sheesh. If that isn't a maintainance nightmare, nothing is. Keep it together, don't fraction Mozilla.
