Mozilla 1.7 Release Candidate 3 Available

Tuesday June 8th, 2004

dmbtech writes "Mozilla 1.7 RC3 was released today. This is the final-draft-like release for the stable 1.7 milestone. This release is similar to RC2 and RC1 which are released to find any late-breaking bugs. This will probably be the last release candidate before 1.7 final comes out. 1.7 as you might know is replacing the 1.4 as the stable branch, and is being used for the Firefox 1.0 milestone." The Mozilla 1.7 RC 3 Release Notes are available, and downloads can be found on the releases page and the mozilla1.7rc3 directory on ftp.mozilla.org.


#2 Official GTK2+XFT builds?

I wonder why the GTK2+XFT builds of Mozilla aren't done by Mozilla.org, but are made by contributors (and thus, they're not official). Why can't Mozilla.org make the official GTK2 SeaMonkey builds?

GTK1 is obsolete and doesn't look good. Linux SeaMonkey users mostly use the unofficial GTK2 version (from their Linux distro vendor or from the contrib) and nobody uses the GTK1 versions...
