Sneak Preview of Mozilla Milestone 0.7 -- Release Expected This Week

By Mike Angelo - 25 December 2000 (c)

(Update Note: please see Mozilla Milestone 0.7 Browser-Suite Released - 9 January 2001)

Look for latest Milestone release of the Mozilla browser suite, Mozilla 0.7, this week. The latest Mozilla Project development roadmap lists Mozilla 0.7 for a December 2000 release. This is the last week of December 2000 -- you can do the math. And word on the grapevine is that the Mozilla folks are on target for a December 2000, Mozilla 0.7 release.

The new Netscape 6 browser suite and the upcoming NeoPlanet browser are based upon the cross-platform Mozilla browser-suite.

"The milestones are intended to be periodic check points for progress on the project, stability of builds, porting status, and are entry points for additional mozilla (sic) contributors to provide testing and engineering help on the project." (Project Sea Monkey)

Nevertheless, pre-Mozilla-1.0 development builds now are pretty much features-complete, stable, and usable. Mozilla development work now is focused on bug squashing, improved stability, and better performance.

We have been using the 17 November 2000 Mtrunk Mozilla build as a primary browser. It is very stable and usable for us insofar as Web surfing is concerned. We also find it to be better, browser-wise, than Netscape 6.0. Unfortunately, that build is no longer available for download on the Mozilla Organization FTP site.

Would you like a sneak preview of Mozilla 0.7? If so, you can download and try the 24 December 2000 Mozilla Mtrunk build. It should be pretty close to what Milestone 0.7 will be. Check the MozillaQuest Magazine front page (mozillaquest.com) to find out when Milestone 0.7 is released. Here are the FTP download links.
