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.


#69 Ok, not releasing. Releasing *alpha*

Ok, ok, ok, I know that the end result has to be lean. It will be. Mozilla already rocks and will kick serious butt when the emphasis is put on optimisation.

After Alpha! This happens after Alpha!!

Mozilla *will* be fine. But rather than delay Alpha until it's just perfect, what's wrong with saying "This is still full of debugging code and optimisation hasn't started. It will be gone by final release, but expect it to hurt you if your system is heavily loaded, or does not meet the following requirements..."
