M10 Out! You Thought They Skipped It?
Friday October 8th, 1999
Well, the plan was that they were going to skip an M10 build and go straight to M11. However, they decided that to reach beta they needed a bit more time (which is why beta is now scheduled for around 12/15/99), so they're spinning an M10 build to help with regression checking.
Be sure to check out the first Milestone appearance of the DOM Viewer (Debug>DOM Viewer) which allows you to see the DOM tree for a page. Also, if you haven't checked out Mozilla since M9, go back through our archives and you'll find news on new functionality that you can try for yourself.
BTW, proxies do work. Check out the comments at the bottom of this bug page to see how...
Also, we'd love to see some reader assessments of M10. Submit them in our Reader Reviews and we'll post them. Your review can be as long or short as you desire, but if it's around 500 words, you're 1/5th of the way towards a stuffed Mozilla. You don't have to use the entire 500 words on just M10 - you can give us your feelings about how far Mozilla has come, what you hope to see at beta, at release, etc. The Reviews section is for you all to have a place for your opinions, whenever you feel the urge to say something. It'll always be there if you feel the need to rant or rave...
UPDATE: If you are having trouble getting M10 to start in Windows, try deleting the mozregistry.dat file in your C:\windows directory.
We have two reviews of M10 for you to check out. Click the links in the box at the top of the page, or get to them visiting the Reader Reviews area (there's a link in the navbar at left).
#75 M10 looking really nice...

I don't think they'll add an installer until it hits beta since there's no real need for it right now since not everything is suppose to be consumer friendly while it's still in development. I mean if it were to be completely consumer friendly right now the DOS window would not show when you run Mozilla since that will confuse a lot of people.
But if I remember correctly they is work being done in an installer app.
