Well, orriginal it was due for Spring for 2007. But as it was, Firefox 2 development was pushed very fast for its deadline, this meant a lot of big things were just left for Firefox 3. I think in the development community there was a little disgruntlement about this and essentially they're just waiting till Firefox 3 is completely finished, which I think is a good thing. As it stands Firefox is in Alpha 7 at the moment:

The next edition should be Beta 1.

I know it's been out for a few days, but Firefox 3 Alpha 8:

http://developer.mozilla.org/devnews/index.php/2007/09/20/gran-paradiso-alpha-8-available-for-download/

It's shaping out to be really good, I'd recommend people give it a spin if they want when the Beta's start coming out. Though I have no idea when that's going to be, the schedule seems to be having really thrown off, the developers seems to have given up on timetables since the fiasco of Firefox 2 (trading in developments for getting things out on time. So yeah, alpha 6 was supposed to be the last alpha, there may be 1 or 2 more alpha yet, they're already calling the latest nightly builds pre-a9.

Edit: I've just been reading and they're planning for a Beta 1 for the next release rather than Alpha 9, pre-a9 is pegged for technical reasons. So should have a Firefox 3 Beta thread soon   :D

Well if you're interested at all, apparently getting Firefox 3 to be as bugless free as the developers would like it proving to be quite a challenge. As it stands there will now be an alpha 9 as a lot of the bugs that need to be fixed to achieve 'beta quality' won't be fixed until milestone 10. Which means Firefox 3 final probably won't be out till early 2008.

2009 was mainly to fit the regressions that 2008 made (it's the part of Firefox's new marketing drive, they've lost the dots when talking about it on promotional website, more sleek apparently), I think they were mainly caused by making it compatible for the new mac.

Anyway Firefox 3 Beta 1 is almost ready, yesterday it had only 1 blocker left and was expected to be fixed by the end of the day, as soon as it comes out officially I'll make a post about it and explain significant changes and changes still to come.

Firefox 3 Beta 1 isn't out yet, just several respins, which is why I haven't made a thread about it yet.
