URL spoofing with username:password bug <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=232567> -- Looks like for 1.7, URLs with the form <http://www.mozilla.com>:<fakepassword@evilsite.com> will throw up a popup dialog box every time you go to a site using this method. Eventually, the intent is to make it warn, and the warning could be disabled on a per-site basis. Until then, a pref to disable the feature will have to do.

It looks like the FTP upload UI is working? Yay! <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24867> -- But will it be in 1.7 final?

From the article...

"We need to land a few biggish changes we want to take on the 1.7 branch first [...] FTP upload"

Why do you think I posted these in the first place? Just because they are in the notes doesn't mean they will make the final build.

As far as I can tell, DevMo is an effort to create a central, Mozilla Foundation sponsored developers' website. They want to have something along the lines of Microsoft's MSDN web site but for Mozilla developers, extension and theme developers, etc...

Should be quite a good deal once it's online.

Thanks. I forgot about the d.m.o. post. I hope it comes to fruition soon.

#7 Too soon for stable version?

Does anyone else get the impression that 1.7 is too early for the next long-term-stable release and that it would be better to * defer all new development work to 1.9 * make 1.8 a "clean-up and stabilize release" with a due date of about 3 months (2004-08) * have 1.8 be the next long-term release rather than 1.7

My gut feeling is that you're right. However if they take long enough (e.g. a couple of months) then they might acheive the goal of a stable release, and have it out in the right time-frame. Stabailising 1.8 might push the release date further, or not. I don't know if stabalising a branch will mean they have fewer resources focusing on it than if they made 1.8 the long-term stable candidate. 1.8 seems like a nicer number than 1.7 too ;)
