    Mozilla reaches version 1.0!
    Posted on Thursday, June 06 @ 12:20:45 BST

    After four long years the Mozilla project has released version 1.0 of their much talked about web browser featuring the famous Gecko rendering engine. Full news here at

    NOTE: Packages will be reach sid when they are ready, and a snowball in hell stands a better chance than Mozilla 1.0 does of making it into woody.

    Seems peculiar indeed that Woody would go "stable" with Mozilla at version 0.9.9.

    Why not?

    Isnt there a security problem in 0.9.9?

    So if i remember correctly woody cant release with 0.9.9. Why not put in 1.0 as a bugfix upload?

    The sid packages should be there in a few days. Mozilla packages where always very fast in the last weeks and die differences between rc3 and final are minimal and wont affect the packaging

    I would be happy if the maintainer adopts a more beautiful icon, e.g. Ximian's Mozilla icon. The current Debian icon for Mozilla sucks 🙁 .

    I had a talk with people at Mozilla and the Debian Mozilla maintainer.

    There was another security fix between 1.0rc3 and 1.0, but from my understanding, Takuo will patch the woody pacakge instead of upgrading to 1.0.

    Too bad, that would have been a good occasion to push mozilla 1.0 in woody. :))

    Is it just me or is the linux version of mozilla not meant for older machines?

    I have an amd k6-2 400mhz laptop with 160 mb ram. Starting mozilla takes for ever and fixing the ugly fonts takes ever longer than that :c)

    I really have no clue why navigating through the settings takes so long.

    To my great surprise, I installed the windows version on a similar computer (my GF is moving to Debian, and known applications like staroffice and moziila will make it a lot easier), and guess what. It isn't slow at all.

    Am I missing something?

    C. (<-- prolly in happy compile-land just to be sure)

    One of the first Mozilla release parties was held in Ypsilanti (Ann Arbor, MI) last night. It was a pretty nice turn out. There were enough folks in Mozilla and other various geek apparel to make any geek feel right at home. Thanks to Tap Internet for hosting the party and kudos on the Mozilla 1.0 Cake.

    That's crummy Mozilla 1.0 won't get into woody. It would be nice to delay the release maybe a couple months but get the Mozilla 1.0, KDE 3.0, X 4.2, and maybe even Gnome 2 in there.

    I just want my Mozilla, I can't wait until woody is out for one reason only, things can get back to normal and I might see packadges being kept up to date.
