Mozilla once again postponed the launch of Firefox 4 due to some hard to fix bugs. Firefox 4 Release Candidate is now expected to arrive on February 25th and the final version has been delayed to sometime in March. Guess this doesn't bode too well for Mozilla's plan to release four major versions of Firefox before the end of the year.
Now, in a Google Group posting spotted by blog ConceivablyTech, Mozilla senior engineering director Damon Sicore has turned up the heat a little more, urging his team to ''take this hill'' and push through to ship a release candidate by February 25.
''Looking at the hardblocker bug list and not counting blocklist bugs, we have 22 bugs without patches (out of 51 open) that remain to be fixed to get to RC. This is it. It's time to do the final push to get Firefox 4 to release candidate,'' he said.
Contributors seemed to be focusing too much on non-blocking bugs, he said - and that needed to change.
