New Milestone Added

"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.

A little off topic, but has Adam Lock, or anyone else, considered puting the new Necko Component into an Active-X too? I've used the network controls that ship with VB a bit as well as a few other freeware ones, and they're all pretty abismal (I know... using VB to start with is considered abismal by most). If you could get all the required Protocols, handled properly, in one open source active-X, that would be another huge benifit to third party developers. I'm especially keen on having FTP and Telnet Clients that can not only handle Proxy Servers, but Autosocks severs too (have the option of both at work, but one is usuually slower than the other, or down; and it flip-flops during the day... Netscape's the only thing on my system that not only recognises both protocols, but can quickly flip from one to the other)
