Mozilla Proposes Extended Support for Firefox

Monday, September 26th, 2011

It’s nice that Mozilla is reacting to customer concerns; this sounds especially helpful for those of us who use Mozilla in a large organization …

Mozilla as you may know switched to a rapid release process this year which basically had the consequence that new Firefox versions get released more frequently. Not every user, and especially not organizations and businesses, have welcomed this new process. One of the concerns that users had was that there was not enough time to certify new releases. With new releases coming out every six weeks, it meant that companies would have to assign more man hours to the certification process, which many could not or would not want to do because of budget constraints.

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

This is starting to get confusing, almost to the point of ridiculousness …

It was not clear if Mozilla needed one or two beta releases after Firefox 4 Beta 10 was released last week. The Mozilla Firefox development team is still trying to resolve the remaining severe bugs (betaN hardblockers) that are preventing the release of the next Firefox browser.

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

I guess those predictions about Mozilla speeding up their development cycle were true …

Just yesterday we have been talking about plans to accelerate the Firefox development plan, and while the release of beta 10 of the upcoming Firefox 4 browser has nothing to do with that, it shows that the developers are urging to release the final version of Firefox 4 to start working on Firefox 5.

Firefox 4 Beta 4 Out

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

I guess they’re not kidding this time …

Firefox 4 Beta 4 was originally scheduled for a release on August 20, but blocker bugs kept the team from releasing the version on that day. Four days later, and Firefox 4 Beta 4 has finally been released.

The next major iteration of Firefox comes closer to the first release candidate which is slated for an October release date. At least three additional beta releases will follow before the appearance of the release candidate.
