MathML is now enabled by default on those platforms that
support it, including Windows and Unix. MathML is the W3C
specification for describing mathematics on the web. To properly
display MathML you need to install special math fonts that are not
installed by default on most systems. If you are reading this with
Mozilla 0.9.9, take a look at this MathML sample which should look
fine without these fonts.
Profile->Collect Profile Data to start profiling, execute the
script you'd like to profile, and select Profile->Save Profile
Data As... to save it. Statistics are collected for every function
executed while profiling is enabled, and include total, maximum,
minimum, and average time spent executing the function, and total
number of calls. Supported output formats are HTML, CSV, and plain
text. Sample profile output is available here. Be sure to start the
debugger before loading the scripts you're going to profile.
Mozilla now supports TrueType fonts on Unix using the FreeType2
library. This works on all X servers with a TrueColor visual (ie: a
15/16/24/32 bit frame buffer). This is enabled on Linux i386,
Solaris, HP-UX and some other Unixes. Read these directions on
setting up TrueType support in Mozilla.
Greatly improved View-> Page Info dialog.
Mozilla now supports SOAP.
You now have the option of installing plugins in your Mozilla
user directory ($HOME/.mozilla/plugins on Unix). These plugins are
loaded in addition to those in your Mozilla install directory.
Mozilla has a new Page Setup dialog and the Print Preview
window now has a toolbar.
Mozilla on Microsoft Windows now has a full screen mode.
Speed improvements for the Sparc Solaris build.
The BeOS port now supports SSL and has gfx speed
Mozilla has a new method for disabling popup and popunder
method when it is not called as a result of a mouse click. When the
dom.disable_open_click_delay pref is set to a nonzero number,
window.open will fail when called more than that number of
milliseconds after a mouse click. Setting this pref (instructions
here) should turn off pop-up and pop-under ads that use the onload
handler of <img> tags to work around our previous
window.open() filter. (Bug 92955)
Mozilla's zlib library contins the fix for the zlib
vulnerability. Note that some builds such as the Red Hat RPMs use
the sytem zlib library and you will need to update this library
separately. See the Red Hat Linux Errata Advisory.
The recycled mail compose window was turned on by default which
greatly improves new message and reply performance.
A new mail notification appears in the Windows System
Mozilla now supports the use of socks proxies for mailnews. The
value entered in prefs-> advanced-> proxies-> socks host
will be used for this. You must ensure that this field is left
blank unless you require a socks proxy. If that field contains an
entry that is not actually a socks proxy, then you will receive an
error about connection being refused to your mail server. If you
use a socks proxy and want to read mail from a site that the socks
proxy does not have access to (such as localhost), you need to
manually exclude those site(s) from being proxied by adding it to
the "no proxy for" pref.
LDAP directories appear in the address book.
The address book now has an advanced search dialog.
IMAP Shared Folders is finished with the exception of being
able to click on an imap url to subscribe to one.
The delete key now toggles the deleted state for the IMAP
Improvements to the MailNews UI when reading signed and
encrypted S/Mime messages.
