Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 Slips To July 11

Mozilla has announced that they are pushing the Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 code freeze back to July 5 and the ship date back to July 11. The ship date was expected to be July 6 so this is about a 1-week delay.

The final Firefox 2.0 will hopefully still stay on schedule with the vague release date of August. The release would probably be towards the end of August because they also plan to release RC1 in August. Let’s cross our fingers for an on-time release.

The latest meeting notes for Firefox 2.0 have not been published from yesterday’s meeting, but they should be up soon. I am looking forward to reading the notes to see if they say anything about the Visual Refresh and the new default theme.
