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.

"How about the fact that the suite is on a maintenance footing? That is to say, it is in feature freeze, for all intents and purposes. The only way new features are ending up in the suite right now is if they're actually features of Gecko, not features of the browser UI."

Are you saying that nobody is allowed to update the browser UI?

Mozilla suite users, including me, are so scr*w*d...

P.s. a new confirmation dialog for 'Close Other Tabs' was added only recently so that's at least one new feature.
