Mozilla 1.7 Release Candidate 2 Available

Monday May 17th, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation has made Mozilla 1.7 Release Candidate 2 available for download. Like the first release candidate, which came out last month, this build is designed to ensure that there are no major bugs remaining before the final release of Mozilla 1.7. The Mac OS X version of RC 2 now includes the Quality Feedback Agent (Talkback) crash reporting tool, bringing it in to line with Windows and Linux and making it much easier for developers to pinpoint the causes of crashes.

1.7 RC 2 will probably be followed by a further release candidate before the final launch of Mozilla 1.7. After the milestone ships, the 1.7 branch will replace the 1.4 branch as the stable development baseline, with Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and the next major version of Netscape expected to be built from it. More information about this latest release candidate can be found in the Mozilla 1.7 RC 2 Release Notes and builds are available from the Releases page or the mozilla1.7rc2 directory on ftp.mozilla.org.

The real question is how much free space is on the disk. If it is more than 50% free, that should be good.

A new drive would probably keep the machine useful for a longer period of time. To upgrade, I would drop in at your local computer technie shop (locally owned, not big box corporate) and inquire about it. Unless you are prepared to spend a lot of time (days, weeks) in the upgrade process, it's better to spend a few extra bucks and let the pros take care of a hard drive upgrade.
