WaMCom Release

WaMCom (a.k.a Web and Mail Communicator) is an open source initiative which has recently released a new build. More details about their goals/intentions found at their site:

Motivation: End users are looking for stable software. But the Mozilla organization makes it clear to say: "We make binary versions of Mozilla available for testing purposes only!"

The intention of WaMCom.org is to produce web browser and mail client software that is more stable and more correct than the test releases produced by the Mozilla.org organization, in the hope it is suitable for end users. In order to achieve that, stable Mozilla releases are extended with additional correctness fixes. In addition it contains some security and cryptography enhancements.

Their project has implemented close to 500 trunk bug fixes on top of the Mozilla 1.3.1 release. Meaning a more stable Mozilla is now available to the public and for everyone anticipating the next milestone.

Hmm, having looked at this for myself, I think I'll stick
with my current combination of Moz1.4RC, Fb0.6 and
the unofficially released Netscape 7.1 for now . . .
