According to various published blurbs on the Internet, a new release from the 1.0 tree of Mozilla and a beta release of Mandrake Linux 9.1 have both been quietly placed out on the Net.
Mozilla 1.0.2 was released with little fanfare on the Mozilla.org Web site on January 7. It is termed a "stability" release, and contains no new features beyond those in Mozilla 1.0.
"Mozilla 1.0.2 contains stability and security improvements. 1.0.2 also has fixes for standards support, UI correctness and polish, performance, and site compatibility. This is not a feature release. For new features, Mozilla 1.0 users are encouraged to upgrade to Mozilla 1.2," reads the What's New section of the 1.0.2 release notes.
Users can download the 1.0.2 release from Mozilla.org.
News about the Mandrake beta release was more sketchy, until official word was made by MandrakeSoft late Friday morning. The news was first mentioned on the Tux Reports site, and later picked up by OSNews.

Each site's blurb, however, contains separate download links to that ISO file. The OSNews blurb also has links back to Tux Report's image gallery, where two screenshots of the new beta have been posted.
