MozillaQuest.com: Mozilla milestone 0.9.9 branched

Author: JT Smith

Mozilla 9.9 is on its way. MozillaQuest Magazine (MozillaQuest.com) reports: "The Mozilla developers cut the 0.9.9 milestone branch yesterday -- a week behind schedule. Mozilla 0.9.9 is the last planned milestone before the scheduled April 2002 Mozilla 1.0 release.... The good news of course is ... there will be a Mozilla 1.0 soon. However, some in the Mozilla community question whether ... Mozilla 1.0 should be released in April 2002. Two major concerns are that there are too many open bugs and that Mozilla lacks some essential features." ... "Not including enhancement-request bugs, the Mozilla bug-targeting schema anticipates leaving some 8,600 unfixed, targeted, problem-bugs in Mozilla 1.0 when it is released... Many ... Mozilla bugs are in that underlying application programming framework -- the Mozilla APIs if you like. That means that any third party developers that build
programs on top of the Mozilla ... framework will be building on top of a buggy foundation -- not a pretty picture."
