Mozilla adds extra Firefox 3.6 beta, still plans to ship final in 2009

Mozilla last week slipped in a fourth beta of its upcoming Firefox 3.6 browser, but said this week that it is still shooting to ship the final code by the end of the year.

Last Thursday, Mozilla released Firefox 3.6 Beta 4 after developers decided that the browser upgrade needed further testing before moving on to a release candidate.

"Due to the excellent work on knocking down the Firefox 3.6 Beta topcrash list, we've decided that it would be worthwhile to ship another beta update to our close to half million testers to confirm our expectations," Mike Beltzner, the director of Firefox, said in a message posted to the Mozilla developers planning forum last Tuesday. "We'd also like to get as much feedback as possible on the more than 140 fixes we've made since we shipped the update last week."

Mozilla shipped Firefox 3.6 Beta 3 on Nov. 17.

In a follow-up post on the Mozilla developers blog last Thursday, Beltzner bragged that about 70% of the available Firefox add-ons -- a crucial component to the open-source browser's success in grabbing market share from Microsoft's Internet Explorer -- had been upgraded so that they were compatible with Firefox 3.6.

The insertion of the fourth beta has pushed back the delivery of a Firefox 3.6 release candidate, as well as the final code, although Mozilla maintained that it would still wrap up the latter before 2010 begins.

"Closing on blockers in order to deliver a release candidate build this week," Mozilla said in a note published Monday. "Still aiming to be ready to ship in late December."

As recently as September, Mozilla was shooting to deliver the final of Firefox 3.6 by early November. Subsequently, Mozilla began using a before-the-end-of-the-year window to describe its release plans for Firefox 3.6.
