Andrew says, "Mozilla.org reopened the source tree this evening for to start work on Mozilla's Milestone 5, after M4 had been deemed code complete. The source code and initial builds have been sent to the QA team for their thumbs up.

But AFAIK even the M4 build misses three important things: - displaying XML without a stylesteet like IE5 does (this is an important feature for developers, and a must-be for XML tech demonstrations)... - display of XML parser errors - XSL (optional: DSSL)

The first noted feature is a MUST-BE, 2nd one a SHOULD-BE, and the third that can be done in Mozilla 5 second edition...

I don't think there are any plans in the works right now to support XSL in any fashion until it's a recommendation by the W3C. IE5 really dropped the ball on this one, because they make XSL, a style-sheet language that's still subject to change, override CSS, a proven and set-in-stone style-sheet language, in all cases.

- "displaying XML without a stylesheet." They're accepting patches.

- "display of XML parser errors". Expat does this. If it doesn't, it's a bug.

Hrm, the latest pulled from CVS today builds nicely, but segfaults at startup (linux version).

$ ./viewer nsComponentManager: Using components dir: /home/mu/bin/components Going to create the event queue ./viewer: error in loading shared libraries: /usr/local/lib/libwidgetgtk.so: undefined symbol: gdk_rgb_set_verbose

is that the segfault at startup on Linux M.Z?
