Firefox 2.0 debuted as a developers-eyes'-only Beta 1 a month ago. Version 2.0, which will compete against Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 when that browser rolls out later this year, boasts an in-line spell checker, anti-phishing alerts, and a restore-after-crash feature, other improvements include enhancements to its tabs, news feeds, and extension add-ons.
The company was upfront about the cause of the delays. "[The] slip [is] due to number of outstanding blocker [bugs] in several areas," the minutes read.
In the meantime, the release of Firefox 220.127.116.11 -- the next security update for the current production version of the browser -- has been moved up to the first week of September. "Due to Firefox 2.0 slip, we have decided to shorten the 18.104.22.168 release cycle to get it out before we reach release time for 2.0," Mozilla said.
The current 22.214.171.124 version of Firefox can be downloaded for Windows, Linux, and MacOS X from here.
