AMozillaX Press Release

This statement is made by Ben Rothwell on behalf of the entire
aMozillaX team.

When, in January 1999, we had the chance to begin work porting the
Mozilla source code to the 68k and PPC Amiga platforms, the press
coverage was significant and the community anxious to see a browser
with significant parts of the Netscape source code in it.

However, recently it has come to light that there is a growing stem
of discontentment amongst users of the Amiga, due to the fact that
they still do not yet have aMozillaX.

We would like to take this chance to make a formal apology to the
community for this situation. Initially we aimed for a release in June,
and at one stage it looked possible to make an early release in
early May. However, developing a program of this size and complexity is
not an easy task, and sometimes problems with the code or other problems
make the time slip back and the community ever more impatient.

We can assure you however that we are working hard to ensure that we
will be able to release Version 1.0 of aMozillaX at the World of Amiga
show in London, mid July. Certain features will be missing, such as Java
mainly due to problems and delays in third party JVM solutions.

However, we are confident that aMozillaX will be able to outperform all of
the current Amiga browsers upon release, offering speed and flexibility,
as well as power. ECMAScript, Dynamic HTML, DOM1, HTML4.0 will all be fully
supported in this release.

We are also working to ensure that when we release binaries and source code,
the right structure is in place to enable other developers to work with us on
improving aMozillaX, more information about this improved web presence can be
found at
