Mozilla locks Firefox 3 B3

The third beta of Mozilla's upcoming Firefox 3.0 has entered code freeze, says Mike Beltzner, the Mozilla interface designer. Testing should begin Monday, with a public release expected on or near February 13th, according to a schedule outlined in meeting notes. The company further states that at least 41 percent of its extensions have been modified for compatibility with Beta 3, although updates have yet to appear for the likes of IE Tab, Fasterfox or Firebug.

A final release of Firefox 3.0 is sometime away, Beltzner cautions. He notes that Mozilla will be "adding another milestone before moving on to Release Candidate builds," meaning the development of a v3.0b4. "Our goal is to do a quick turnaround on Firefox 3 Beta 4, but we cannot provide a good estimate until we know the size and scope of blockers [major obstacles] remaining after the Beta 3 code freeze."

    the excitement! They're not releasing Firefox 3. Not even releasing beta 3. Best this is about is that beta 3 should be around soon.
