Next Version Firefox Released on September
The Mozilla Foundation is planning to release the next major version of its Firefox browser in September, according to information posted to the foundation's Web site. The release will be called Firefox 1.5, although in the past it had been informally dubbed Version 1.1.
Several reports circulating this week said the September release date was a delay from an earlier summer release time frame. However, Computerworld is reporting that the 1.5 release is not delayed, and will ship by 'late summer' as previous roadmaps had promised.
Mozilla engineer Ben Goodger posted an updated roadmap to the Mozilla site this week, citing the September Firefox 1.5 release as well as the planned Firefox 2.0 and 3.0 versions:
'We are planning for a Firefox 2.0 and 3.0, but will divide the planned work over (at this point) three major Milestones, 1.5 (September 2005), 2.0 (unscheduled) and 3.0 (unscheduled). All major development work will be done on the Mozilla trunk, and these releases will coincide with Gecko version revs.'"
