Firefox Pre-Preview Release Available for Testing

Saturday September 11th, 2004

Asa Dotzler writes "We took one more important change into the builds last night, moving from a blacklist to a whitelist for external protocol handlers, so today's builds are the new candidate 1.0PR builds. If all goes well with these builds, they'll become the official Firefox 1.0 Preview Release builds on Tuesday morning. Please help us test these bits and if you find any major regressions, please file bugs and nominate those as PR blockers with the bug flag "blocking-aviary1.0PR?" so that the Aviary team will see.

Download the 0.10 (1.0PR) candidate builds now: Windows installer Linux installer Mac disk image (Other formats can be found here.)

Note that this is not the final 1.0 Preview Release. That will happen on Tuesday if all goes well with the testing of these candidate builds. We appreciate any and all help testing the candidates and strongly encourage you to report any problems. Only you can prevent buggy releases ;-)"

Grasshof, the extension authors are resposible for providing compatibility information to update.mozilla.org. Firefox will continue to check with update.mozilla.org to see if the extension author has either provided a new version or signaled that the current version is compatible. Once either of those happens, the extension will be enabled. You can manually check by going to Tools -> Extensions and selecting the specific extension (or deselect all extensions to check for all of them) then hit the "Update" button. Hopefully the extension authors who have tested to see that their extensions are indeed compatible with the PR release will notify update.mozilla.org and your extension will be re-enabled. If they're not compatible, then hopefully the authors will post new versions to update.mozilla.org and you'll be able to automatically upgrade to the new version.

Thanks for the valuable feedback.
