Ben Goodger posted this in the Orkut Mozilla Firebird community:

It’s Monday February 9 now. This is the first time I’ve been confident enough to give a date. This release is going to be the best Firebird yet.

See Ben Goodger’s reply in forum thread at Orkut if you’re an Orkut member.


Sorry for posting to a closed forum. This piece of news was also made known in the MozillaZine forums in this thread entitled FAQ: When is 0.8 coming out?.

Cheers!

I am sadly repulsed by the snobby exclusiveness of the Orkut juggernaught.

Does anyone know if the new version will fix the problem with rendering certain pages? Since 0.7 some pages are all out of wack, and I need to do a Refresh in the browser to re-render the page, and then it is fine. This must be a Gecko bug, but I hope it is finally gone :(

Dion, that may be an 0.7+ bug. I noticed all nightly builds (since the 0.6 era) garble pages with frames and iframes. It may be a bug specific to your machine as well–I’ve seen Firebird freak out on certain machines and work great on others.

0.8 should be a good release. I’ve noticed that the Firdbird team usually fixes a good deal of outstaning bugs.

Is it really necessary to post this information, and then reference it, in a closed forum? Why don’t they just scrawl release information on the bottom of a rock, and then toss it into the nearest ocean?

Of course, this was also made known in an open forum (the MozillaZine forums) in this thread. I’m sorry for not posting this before, but I was probably a little too excited to check if this was mentioned elsewhere when I got hold of this piece of news. I think that was where it was first “publicly” made known.

Have updated the entry :)
