The Firefox 2.0 Release ScheduleThe dates are coming in and they are looking pretty good. Mozilla has now provided actual date estimates for each of the Firefox 2.0 milestones that are still to come. Here they are:

  • Firefox 2.0 Beta 2 – August 8
  • Firefox 2.0 RC1 – September 1
  • Firefox 2.0 RC2 – September 8
  • Firefox 2.0 RC3 – September 15
  • Firefox 2.0 Final – September 26

There is also a complete Google Calendar with those milestones and code lockdown dates available to view. You can easily add it to your own Google Calendar by doing a search on the left-side of the Google Calendar screen under Public Calendars. Type “Mozilla Developer’s Calendar” into the search and it should be the only result that comes up.

The biggest surprise to me is that Beta 2 is going to be released on August 8 but they do need to get moving to make sure the final version is out before October. I imagine that there will be a few setbacks here and there which will push them back a few days though.

Oh yeah, and don’t forget that the Visual Refresh is expected for Beta 2! I can’t wait to see the new look!
