ex machina

the mozilla team has started the 0.92 branch, which should be focused primarily on bug squashing and performance enhancement [as opposed to creaping featurism].

it appears that netscape is taking more of an active role in bug triaging and stability issues in preparation for an upcoming release:
"This is an important milestone to and some vendors so we will be focusing on stability, leaks and major usability issues."

"We will be taking only very low risk, very high yield patches for this branch and we intend to release quickly. Also, we expect that Netscape will be doing some kind of release off of the 0.9.2 branch. After the Mozilla release of 0.9.2 Netscape will continue making fixes on the 0.9.2 branch."
while netscape has always provided much personpower for the project it has a history of just slapping some brand on top of builds and calling it a release. i wonder if the newfound interest in stability has anything to do with recent, um, squabbles:
"If war now looks inevitable, it is also unfortunate. A clash between AOL and Microsoft would be bad for consumers, because it could leave them having to grapple with competing standards. PC users want to see the two companies developing common technical rules and competing on implementation, rather than each trying to dominate the standard for online music, instant messaging and so on. Sadly, that looks less likely than ever."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
