Firefox 3.1 Gone, Welcome Firefox 3.5

By | March 5, 2009 | 3 Comments


The upcoming Firefox release (Shiretoko) which is currently in development will be released as Firefox 3.5 instead of the planed 3.1. It should be noted, that Firefox Beta 3 which is going to be released within 5 days will still have 3.1 tag.

According to the meeting notes, the following decision was made due to many changes, or as it says “3.1 -> 3.5 to indicate increased scope”

    looks like bullshit for me.

    Comparing 9.2x with 9.5 = makes sence

    Comaring Firefox 3.0 with 3.5 = nonsence

    The difference will not be that big for such a big step.
