Firefox 5.0 to Launch 16 Weeks after 4.0, Firefox 6.0 Just 6 Weeks aft

Quote:
Now that Firefox 4.0 has been all but wrapped up, RC1 will become Final and be served to users starting with March 22nd, 2011, Mozilla is already looking to the next major version of its open source browser.

Mozilla’s Robert Sayre published a draft of the new rapid release process for Firefox, Which the open source browser vendor wants to embark on after shipping version 4.0 next week.

Mozilla has yet to embrace a new development process for Firefox fully, and that changes to the current draft can still be introduced.

It's probably just a play on version numbers. Like Google Chrome, they want to increase numbers as fast as possible. I doubt there will be any significant differences between these versions.

Firefox 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 and 7.0 to Ship in 2011

It would be something if they were really true next version upgrades.

I'd probably have more sympathy if they just jumped the version number to 11 to catch opera or something than release monthly builds upping the major number every month :/

Netscape did that years ago to "catch up" to IE.

Then it's a one time "geeze" to get over rather than them making version numbers completely meaningless by abusing them that way (you too google!!)

I'm OK with the idea as long as it's a quality product.

I'm with Lebon14 on this one, quality counts, numbers don't.

They kinda made fun of this in Tron: Legacy actually. "So what makes this version different from the last version?" "The number is higher."

At Least One Firefox 4.x Release ahead of Firefox 5.0

Quote:
It appears that Firefox won’t evolve directly from version 4.0 to 5.0, but that it will take a slight 4.x detour.

Christian Legnitto, Firefox release manager revealed that there “will be at least one Firefox 4.x release,” following the general availability of version 4.0 next week.

Mozilla has already decided on March 22nd, 2011 for the launch of Firefox 4.0 Final which, for all purposes intended will be identical to the Release Candidate 1 (RC1) development milestone.

“Please note that this plan does not have any bearing on the proposed Firefox 5+ development plan as Firefox 4 was developed under a different system and has different needs,” Legnitto explained.
