By the way, I couldn't quite make this out - the aim is for a simultaneous Mozilla 1.7/Firefox 0.9 release, right? So Firefox 0.9 will pick up any relevant stability fixes from the Mozilla 1.7 push?

The releases should be fairly close together - but the two are already on separate branches, so fixes in one are not necessarily in the other.

#2 Now this sounds interesting

From minutes: "Issues surrounding e.g. someone embedding IE in Firefox, which we don't want to use our mark"

I like the "View this page in IE" extension in FireFox. It would be really sweet if someone made an extension that opened a page in IE as a tab within Firefox. I wonder if that was done or something else???

Yes this was done, I believe. I think it's something called Neptune.

#4 staff meetings together

Is there a reason that Mozillazine always posts two staff meeting notes together every two weeks? It always seems that the later of the two minutes get discussed more (naturally, as the first set is often trumped by new information). Any way to get them on Mozillazine every week? That way they may play a larger role in the discussion and direction of the Mozilla Project.

This is because the minutes should first get passed around the mozilla staff to get confirmed that they reflect the meeting and then they are released in the netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey NG and then Mozillazine have to get to know that they are released.

That, and if you check n.p.m.s you'd find that they seem to be posted to the group that way too - at least according to Google Groups. In this case, both (May 17 and May 24) were posted 2004-05-27 14:10:39 PST.

This is because I often don't get a spare second to post them, except for every two weeks :-( Consider it a measure of how busy I am. In an ideal world, they'd come out the Thursday after every Monday meeting.

Neptune is already up and running in K-Meleon, both to call up IE or to do windows update.

I think this thread is most helpful: <http://forums.mozillazine…330&highlight=neptune>

I got the wrapper Mike made and posted a link to. It is great. I may never open IE again ;o) .

Firefox 0.9 looks sweet, all the improvements (size, efficiency, speed ,etc) of Mozilla 1.7 will be going into this release right? I can't wait then, it seems like its been quite a while since the last Firexxx release!

Firefox and Thunderbird are a great combination, much better than the bloated look and feel of Mozilla in my opinion. :-)
