Well, hey, if gcc 3.3 has made it into stable, this is big news. Upon
checking, I see that KDE 3.1.1 has followed suit. (I'm not a Gnome 2.x
fan. It seems to me that the entire project is in beta, and there's
nothing the packagers would be able to do with that.) Unfortunately,
Mozilla's still stuck at 1.*0*?! I mean, I would have at least thought
that Debian would be starting with the mozilla group's bug fix for that
branch. *As long as sarge would release by the end of the year*, this
puts the distro only *1* year behind the rest of the pack. If it takes
two years to release sarge (like woody), then nothing has changed anyway.
