Mozilla 1.8a3 Released

Wednesday August 18th, 2004 today has released the third alpha build of 1.8. Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 3 release includes a large amount of backend work, including site-specific CSS rules, transparent windows on Windows and GTK2, and undetected document.all support. See the What's New page for more on what has changed in this release. Builds are available from the mozilla1.8a3 directory on the FTP site, and a full set of 1.8a3 Release Notes is also available.

Update: The attack of the alphas won't stop here: a Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 4 is coming soon. As recently as 1.7, each release cycle had just one alpha milestone; a second alpha was added in time for the 1.8 cycle in May. A few weeks ago, Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 3 was announced to prevent 1.8 clashing with the 1.0 releases of Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird.

You are replying to this message

"the URI has an " at the end, which 404's."

Thanks. Actually, it was more the lack of a matching quotation mark at the beginning that caused problems.

"So, are there going to be more than 4 alpha's?"

I believe there's only going to be three.
