    These regressions bugs that you track here, are they defined by personal interest?
    What about there:

    Factors include:
    * My judgement of severity
    * My judgement of how many people are affected
    * How quickly the regression was recognized
    * Votes per day
    * Whether the bug affects me

    Most of the regressions with at least one vote date back to August (with the introduction of the new password manager) or earlier.

    There’s still – some people are never happy :-) – http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=211023 . But the target is not 0.8 0.9 0.10 0.11, only 1.0 ! Sigh. Of course I can very well live with it.

  10. boily Says:

    I can wait, even if I think that the 0.10 and 0.11 releases are not needed. I’ll be very happy when I’ll be able to download 1.0 !!!

  11. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    What do you mean by “the 0.10 and 0.11 releases are not needed”? Should there be a half-year gap between 0.9 and 1.0 for no reason other than to make the version numbers pretty? Or do you think most of the features listed under 0.10 on http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firebird/roadmap.html are unnecessary for Firebird to be “1.0”?
