Mozilla Plug-in API Now Online

Thursday September 16th, 1999

The Plug-in API spec is now online, so if you are interested in creating a new plugin within the new spec, or upgrading an old plugin to take advantage of the new APIs, be sure to check it out. Also important to note is that upgrading does not come at the expense of backwards compatibility.

There's also a curious reference to "Netscape Navigator 2000". Please, say it ain't so!

Thanks to Willy Wonka for the news.

Version numbers really don't give much information either, more often than not, since it's usually the sales and marketing folks who decide such things. I wouldn't have a problem with having year-based versions, and appending an 'a', 'b', 'c', etc for minor releases.
