Mozilla 1.7 Release Candidate 2 - Available Now!


The following text is quoted from the article at MozillaZine, and edited slightly . . .

The Mozilla Foundation has made Mozilla 1.7 RC2 available for download. Like the first
release candidate, which came out last month, this build is designed to ensure that
there are no major bugs remaining before the final release of Mozilla 1.7.

The Mac OS X version of RC 2 now includes the Quality Feedback Agent (Talkback)
crash reporting tool, bringing it in to line with Windows and Linux and making it
much easier for developers to pinpoint the causes of crashes.

Mozilla 1.7 RC 2 will probably be followed by a further release candidate before the
final launch of Mozilla 1.7. After the milestone ships, the 1.7 branch will replace
the 1.4 branch as the stable development baseline, with Mozilla Firefox 1.0
and the next major version of Netscape expected to be built from it.

More information about this latest release candidate can be found
in the Mozilla 1.7 RC 2 Release Notes and builds are available from
the Releases page or the mozilla1.7rc2 directory on
