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.
#3 and the peasants rejoice.

It's great to know that all the olde code is going away, at least. Death to the 'classic' codebase. I seriously cannot wait until M9, because of all the greatness of mozilla will be found in the later milestones. Then the press will see how great an open source browser is. Has anyone tried a necko build yet?
