mozilla.org intends to release a Mozilla 1.3.1 with fixes for the
problems which led us to disable XPInstall for Mozilla on Mac OS X. In
addition to the XPInstall fixes, we've taken a few additional crash and
dataloss fixes (noted in bugs listed below). The Mozilla 1.3.1 release
will be available for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows.

The candidate builds which contain the fixes are located at
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-1.3.1/ and we're
looking for lots of help testing them. If you find problems with these
builds (problems that did not exist in 1.3) please let
dri...@mozilla.org know. Note that there has been quite a lot of
developement in 1.4a and 1.4b which did not happen for this 1.3.1
release so don't expect 1.3.1 to have fixes for anything but the bugs
listed below.

Mac OS X:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2003-04-17-13-1.3.1/mozilla-mac-MachO.dmg.gz
Linux:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2003-04-17-16-1.3.1/mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-sea.tar.gz
Windows:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2003-04-18-14-1.3.1/mozilla-win32-installer-sea.exe

Bugs fixed in 1.3.1:

XPInstall (and theme install) disabled for Mac OS X

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=185169

This release is primarily intended to give Mac OS X users the XPInstall
functionality that was missing in the 1.3 release so we need lots of
testing of XPInstall and theme install for OS X. Help testing around the
stability and dataloss bugs listed above is also very useful.

test and find any problems, please get the builds below and email
dri...@mozilla.org if you find any regressions over Mozilla 1.3 (see
