M11 is out!

Tuesday November 16th, 1999

M11 binaries are now available on the ftp server in Win32, Linux, and Mac flavors, with more to come.

Things new in this release:

  • New name (mozilla, not apprunner)
  • The new chrome
  • rginda's Chatzilla IRC client enabled (see the Chatzilla page for info on how to test it out)
  • Incremental reflow - still a work in progress, but pages now display as the content comes in and no longer wait for closing tags
Check out the release notes for more.

2 points: IE does something similar - load a page that has images w/o height/width tags, and the page reflows as the images are downloaded. The implementation in mozilla is not optimal - *everyone knows this* especially the ones who wrote it. Right now, it reflows the page after a certain number of tags are encountered (or something similar to that), which causes a lot of flashing on fast connections. They plan on moving to a timer based mechanism which will 'do the right thing'.

Also, THERE IS NO CACHE, ever since Necko landed. This will be coming online in the next week or so; Intel is working on the cache implementation.
