gotta love oss... ff 1.0.4 released today fixes above security flaws. 8)

I wish Mozilla developers would find an easy way to update these fixes, rather than have us download new installer, uninstall previous firefox installation then install new one. :-?


ff 1.1 will be the 1st release with a patch/update system. ;) it's currently scheduled for around june '05.

There won't be 1.1 but 1.5 in September. 1.4 beta may be released in August

Mozilla has just updated the Firefox development roadmap to reflect a decision on the next major release of the popular open-source browser. The non-profit foundation has decided to increase the version number of the next major release to 1.5 from 1.1, reflecting the sheer number of bug fixes and features that have been worked into the next version of the browser. Mozilla still plans to ship the next version of Firefox (now Firefox 1.5: "Deer Park") around September of this year:

* Firefox 1.4: Beta release in August 2005
Feature Complete general public preview release
* Firefox 1.5: Milestone Release
New Gecko, ongoing HIG compliance, software update system and extension manager improvements

The roadmap update comes just days after the discovery of a major flaw in Firefox, which has raised security concerns quite similar to those that have plagued ActiveX and Internet Explorer for years.

this is wrong! all known critical flaws are currently patched. they are refering to the greasemonkey extension. if you don't use greasemonkey, then you are fine.
