New Milestone Added

Richard Lloyd wrote in with this interesting tidbit:

"May have been mentioned already before, but I assume everyone knows there are TEN Mozilla milestones now (M10 is released on 13th August), not nine like everyone else has been quoting."

It looks like they added one more milestone to accomodate the new networking library, Necko.

"Netscape will take one of the milestone builds and turn it into navigator and mozilla will continue to be worked on."

True, but at some point, there must be a release of Mozilla 1.0 that is a stable standard production release. There should also be a 0.x release or two, denoting a true Alpha, or Beta release, that doesn't threaten to blow up your hard drive, as does the disclaimer with the nightly builds. these releases will undoubtably be tied in with a Milestone release, and since Netscape, at least for the time being, is so tightly integrated with Mozilla (at least in a "coders on the payroll" sense) I'm betting even money that these self same releases will also be used for the Communicator 5.0a, 5.0b and 5.0 final releases.
