New Milestone Schedule Announced

Thursday May 20th, 2004

Asa Dotzler has posted a new milestone plan which outlines some changes being made to the release schedule of point releases of the suite and platform going forward. The main change is the now longer periods prior to a final release, with two longer Alpha periods, and a longer Beta period. This allows for more time to land large changes and get them stable prior to a final release. Along with these changes, there will now be at least one release candidate prior to each final release. More information can be found in some of Asa's recent weblog postings.

Update: Some of the text and links above have been updated to provide more information.

Well, some people are still waiting for such-and-such feature in IE and its last release was when? :) And it's next release? :) IE is sooooo out of date.

A longer time between offical final releases might be better for web developers as they have to verify compatibility with new releases. Of course I always use the nightly builds anyway.
