Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird 1.0.6 Releases Coming??

Just days after the releases of Mozilla Firefox 1.0.5 and Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.5, it appears likely that 1.0.6 versions of the two applications could be coming as early as next week. It is understood that API changes in 1.0.5 unintentionally broke some extensions.

In comment 45 of bug 300028, Rafael Ebron said yesterday, "We received feedback on 1.0.5 from distributors and extension developers on API changes that affected them (not a security issue), so we're looking at a 1.0.6 to fix it." It is known that the Enigmail PGP extension for Thunderbird does not work in version 1.0.5.

At the moment, the 1.0.5 releases of Firefox and Thunderbird are only available in American English (en-US). No localised builds have been placed online for download and localisation teams have been asked not do any further work on the 1.0.5 releases. It appears that these localised editions of 1.0.5 will be skipped altogether, with the next localised release being 1.0.6.

Does This Mean We Dinosaurs w/Mozilla are....

being fed to the Sharks unless we become Flaming Foxes??
Given these were security fixes, the lack of a promised new Mozilla Suite would seem to bode a death knell in the wind. Additionally, while looking around Sun Java, came across a notice that J2SE is officially Deceased and Buried. I've been waiting to hear which 1.4.2_? was going to be needed for Moz.update. Mind you, with 1.0.5 problems, maybe ignorance is bliss.... Happy
