Is M12 Alpha?

Thursday December 2nd, 1999

That's what the mozilla developers would like to know. If you're a member of mozillaZine, you can participate in a survey to help gauge our readers' feelings regarding the current pre-M12 builds. If you're not a member, it's easy to become one (and free, too). Just visit our members page and follow the instructions.

Then, visit the survey page, and answer all the questions. You will need to be a member to see the survey results, and you cannot see the results until after you have voted.

If you don't have a current pre-M12 build, you can grab the latest nightly build from our builds page.

If you have tried the builds, but haven't tried things like mail or news, please vote 10 for those questions pertaining to email or newsgroup usage.


#48 M12 should be Alpha!

If M12 is in some ways even better than M11 - which is BY FAR the best Milestone I've ever seen - then it should be Alpha!

I don't understand all this discussion about this detail and that detail question. It's important to show Mozilla is moving on and on, and Alpha release is the best way to do that.

Of course, it's still buggy (but there are final releases of other products that are even more buggy). And of course, it's not complete in any way (not ALL features do work, not EVERYBODY gets the skin he wants) - but it's ALPHA. And as far as I'm concerned, that's "not even Beta"!!!!

So, please, let M12 be Alpha - and make as good as possible, of course!
