Mozilla 1.4.2 Released

Monday May 10th, 2004

Thanks to herman for informing us that Mozilla 1.4.2 came out a little over a week ago. This latest release from the 1.4 branch features only bug fixes (no new features) and will be mainly of interest to developers building products from the stable branch. Most end-users will want Mozilla 1.6 or the upcoming Mozilla 1.7.

More information about Mozilla 1.4.2 can be found in the Mozilla 1.4.2 Release Notes, with builds available from the mozilla1.4.2 directory on This likely to be the last release from the 1.4 branch; 1.7 is expected to become the new stable baseline after the release of Mozilla 1.7 final in a few weeks.

1.4.2 has "thousands of bug fixes" according to the release notes.

Compared to which browser? Mozilla 0.9.2? Mozilla 1.4? Mozilla 1.4.1 had a lot of bugfixes compared to 1.4, 1.4.2 doesnīt have thousands of bugfixes, that would have required more than 10 checkins per day, and there have been weeks without checkin on the 1.4 branch. Most of the checkins were for os/2, I donīt think there is more than a double digit number of windows checkins.
