Firefox 1.5 RC1 Delayed to Eliminate Late Bugs

Mozilla Corp. has had to delay the first release candidate of Firefox 1.5 by a few days to smash some late-appearing bugs, a company employee announced late Monday.

Firefox 1.5, which is currently in its second beta version, was going to move on to the next step, Release Candidate 1, on Friday, Oct. 28. A code lockdown -- which meant that no new changes for RC1 would be accepted -- was scheduled for midnight Sunday, Oct. 23.

"We didn't quite make it and this morning there were a couple of regressions, a couple of newly discovered security issues, and a couple of unfixed Update bugs," blogged Asa Dotzler, the coordinator of Mozilla’s QA program, on Monday.
