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.

BTW, Firefox and Thunderbird will be keeping their names; the decision was made that they would not become Mozilla Browser and Mozilla Mail because that would sacrifice the name recognition that they've developed during the development periods. They will still be replacing the suite at some point, just not renamed.

Also, there really isn't much of a "divided effort." There is a solid core of Mozilla code which recieves the great majority of the attention. Firefox, Thunderbird, and Seamonkey (the Suite's codename) are all built around that; their code consists only of features and interface unique to themselves. So anybody that's contributing to just one or the other is working on features exclusive to that one, and probably wouldn't be cotnributing at all if his pet project didn't exist.
