Firefox 1.0 Update
Sunday July 25th, 2004
Ben Goodger has posted an update on his blog discussing what's next for Firefox on the road to 1.0. The decision has been made to call the next release "Firefox 1.0 Preview Release" externally, and 0.10 internally. Ben also goes into detail on what extension authors can do to ensure compatibility with this next release. More details on the latest extension standards can be found on the Firefox Project site.
Yes, but it wasn't 0.90, it was 0.9.0 - 0.10 is higher than 0.9.
It is not supposed to be a decimal number, it's a version number - integers separated with periods, not digits and a decimal point. Otherwise 0.9.1 wouldn't make a lot of sense, would it?
That may be confusing to some, but that scheme is only used internally - externally the release will be labelled "1.0 Preview Release".
Faster they get to 1.0 the better, then the numbers will be "readable" as decimals as well...
