Well, after 2 years of waiting, we’ve finally branched for 2.18. Along with that comes our first release candidate for the upcoming 2.18 release. You can download it here.
This has been 2 years in the making, and the release process itself isn’t exactly a piece of cake, especially when we have security issues to deal with. Myself and 4 or 5 other tireless folks have spent the last 4 days getting very little sleep while we toss around draft copies of the advisory, finish up the checkins for the last few blocking bugs, and otherwise get all the details worked out. I think Gerv about summed it up better than I could.
We also have a brand spanking new design on the Bugzilla website. It’s a much more professional look than we used to have, and helps us blend in with the Mozilla Foundation a little better. I can’t express enough thanks to Mike Morgan, who redesigned the site for us based on mozilla.org’s existing CSS, and tweaking it enough to give us our own flavor. After what we’ve had for a website for the last few years, it really is quite a beauty to behold. We’d love to get feedback on the website design, or even content. If there’s anything you think should be done differently, you can either post on netscape.public.mozilla.webtools or file a bug.
