Previous Updates

Mozilla 1.5 Alpha

The trunk froze for Mozilla 1.5 Alpha earlier this week but it has since been reopened and a branch has been cut for Mozilla 1.5 Alpha. Branches are not usually created for alpha and beta releases but want to allow some installer fixes to bake without delaying the reopening of the trunk. See David Baron's message to netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey for more details.

Mozilla Thunderbird

Mozilla Thunderbird build 2003-07-08 is now available. This build features Qute-style icons in the message composition window, has a reorganized Options dialog and exposes the Certificate Manager. Read Scott MacGregor's post to the MozillaZine Forums for more details.

DNS Rewrite

On his weblog, Darin Fisher has posted an update on the ongoing DNS code rewrite (bug 205726).

Animated images can now be stopped by pressing the Stop button or the Esc key (bug 70030).
