Scott MacGregor has formally announced the Minotaur project to the Mozilla community.
ChatZilla 0.8.24 (released earlier this month) has now landed on the Mozilla trunk.
Venkman 0.9.53 has landed on the trunk. Amongst other improvements, this version allows you to change values from the Local Variables or Watch views, add watches from the Local Variables view and save and restore breakpoints and watches.
A new Windows build of Calendar that works with 1.4 trunk nightlies is available.
Mozilla now supports optional smooth scrolling, controlled by the boolean general.smoothScroll pref (bug 174049).

Modern Theme Toolbars
The Modern theme now supports displaying toolbars as pictures and text, pictures only and text only (bug 171013). Note that in Navigator the first two options are visually indistinguishable as Modern's Navigator toolbar icons do not have text below them.
