Rough Changelog for Mozilla 1.6 Beta (about 375 issues)

This is a list of bugs pulled from Bonsai and Bugzilla. It's a "rough" list because I didn't verify each bug on the list as actually having been fixed in the 1.6 Beta development cycle and I may have missed some that were; I just used the smartest queries I could devise. It's not perfect but if you're interested in what got fixed during this cycle, this is probably the best place to start. --Asa
