New test builds are available for win32 - read bug 155417
for the location and instructions. The developers would
welcome assistance getting this feature working on other platforms.
Some recent developments:
- Started work on email/calendar integration, so you can email
alarms to any email address (for example, a cell phone). When
you receive an .ics file via email, you can right click and hit
open and it pops up the new event dialog.
- Work has started on supporting multi-day events.
- You can now sort the event listing (via title, start date, end
date, categories, etc...)
Version 0.4, "Oceano", was released on 29 October 2002. New this

Independent project status updates
The latest collection of independent
(mozdev) status reports covers XP Server, NeedleSearch, Uzilla,
Optimoz, Annozilla, Beonex, Tagzilla, Themes, mozdev, and MultiZilla.
The mozilla tree remains in driver approval lockdown for the 1.2
release, with lots of good fixes going in during the past week. More
details about the lockdown can be found on the roadmap.
This means that in addition to the usual
review/super-review you also need driver approval before checking in.
Here's what you need do to get driver approval:
- Get your patch reviewed and super-reviewed
- Tidy the bug patch history - if there are old patches in the
bug, make sure they're marked obsolete
- Mail drivers@mozilla with a message that includes the following
The subject of the message should start "[trunk approval]".
- bug number
- description of the bug, visibility, why it's important,
- risk assessment of the bug, what testing has been done,
possible failure modes if the patch doesn't work correctly
- who gave the r/sr
- a link to the bugzilla bug (never include the
bugzilla page as an attachment)
- Be patient as you wait for a response. Work on a another bug,
write some documentation,
meditate, play golf, watch a sunset, stick your head in a
bucket of water -- whatever works for you. Remember that there
are people all over the world in the same situation; drivers
hasn't singled you out for torture.
