9. Work More Closely with Firefox > 99. Find Out What Has Been Fixed

Find Out What Has Been Fixed

Work out the differences between minor Firefox versions without reading the code.

Every day brings more bug fixes. Every day brings several nightly builds to play with. This hack shows how to find out what’s in a given Firefox version, whether it’s new features or fixes for known problems. You can get lightweight or detailed reports on the changes that have been made, so let’s start with the lightweight ones.

Release Notes

Every major Firefox release, whether it be 1.0 or 1.1, comes with a brief overview of the features that it contains. Go to http://www.getfirefox.com to find out the major items made available or new in such releases.

A more systematic breakdown of feature changes is provided by the highly organized Burning Edge web site (http://www.squarefree.com/burningedge/releases/), which reports on the code changes made by the Mozilla community. Look here for a stack of release summaries, including one that forecasts the contents of the next minor release.
