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.

It will be, once 1.0 is reached. It has just taken some time to iron all the kinks out of the different new schemas. I understand the frustration but for some time now I have been able to upgrade without reinstalling my extensions. It may be worth it to bite the bullet (or maybe at 0.9) and get it over with to take advantage of all the new features.
