Necko Has Landed!

Thursday July 29th, 1999

Necko, the new, modular networking library, has landed in the main branch of the CVS tree. Builds should be spun today containing the new Necko code (I tried downloading the latest win32 build from the FTP site - 1999-7-28-23-m9, and it seems corrupted, though). Necko will be stabilizing over the next few days, and the plan is to get all the functionality of M8 before spinning off an official M9 build.

If you're not familiar with Necko, read up on it. Netlib was the last major piece of the code to undergo a modularization process.

I tried M9 this morning (first milestone I tried), but on my machine (Mac 7500/100 Mhz, 56 Mb RAM) it runs a lot _slower_ then Communicator 4.6. It takes some 4-5 minutes to load! Maybe not enough memory reserved?

cheers,
