1.0.5 is mainly a security fix, but I have seen a bunch of non-security fixes creep in also, such as removing the default checkbox "yes" for "make firefox my home page." This looks like a big cleanup for the 1.0.x branch, before 1.1 takes over.

I don't know about the security fixes, besides the medium-risk frame/window spoofing thing (with 1.0.4, you should not open untrusted sites at the same time as sensitive sites...). Here are the non-security fixes (non-security as it seems to me) checked in since 1.0.4:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=283730
"Save As" dialog tries to overwrite link/shortcut (.lnk) file instead of opening the directory/folder

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=295210
Tab title different from window title on initial load at gmail

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=283777
Right arrow key after selecting autocomplete result no longer uses selected item

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=291232
update installer packages should offer unchecked check box for setting start page

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=291064
Helper app dialog incomplete for non-nsStandardURL types

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=265536
(64-bit only issue)

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=245631
Crash loading (particular) .ico file

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141818
Table with large rowspans and colspans hangs the browser

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=288006
Drag image across browser windows --> crash

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=295052
Obscure Javascript crash

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=296270
Default user agent problem (AIX platform only)

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=280813
Crash on OS/2 platform

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=293778
bookmarks toolbar missing in 2nd opened window, links in second window possibly cause crash

Thanks, but I'm still wondering if it's the same build as in the folder I indicated.

Yeah, that was an overlapping post. I don't know the answer to your question.

And 2 week past and 1.0.5 still didnt came. Why? Is there any problem?

colfer's link goes to the nightlies folder - the "aviary-1.0.1" builds under there that he mentioned are the same type of builds as the one at your link. The tinderbox-builds are uploaded every few hours, and then once each day one of them goes into the "nightly" folder, but they're from the same branch of code.

MaydayFox wrote:And 2 week past and 1.0.5 still didnt came. Why? Is there any problem?

I don't think so - the 2 week time wasn't something that anyone from Mozilla said. According to the meeting minutes, there was a meeting to triage 1.0.5 issues last Tuesday and I imagine they're still getting the fixes together, then they'll need to do some testing, then they will release. Because the security issues aren't quite so bad as in previous cases, I guess they will want to try and bit more thorough with 1.0.5, so they don't need a 1.0.6 a couple of weeks later.

colfer wrote:Here are the non-security fixes (non-security as it seems to me)

Depends what you call "non-security" fixes - several of them are fixes for problems that meant a webpage could crash Firefox - that's a "denial of service" security issue. A couple of them (e.g. the lnk thing) are fixes for regressions caused by previous security fixes on the branch, and a couple of the ones which aren't either of those are platform specific fixes which don't effect the official builds.

More tantalizing info. These are the four open bugs "blocking-aviary1.0.5+" (Boolean Charts on Bugzilla advanced search)
[url=https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&cmdtype=doit&field0-0-0=flagtypes.name&type0-0-0=equals&value0-0-0=blocking-aviary1.0.5%2B&resolution=---]
Bugzilla (blocking-aviary1.0.5+)[/url]

It comes down to two things. First, a pair of related bugs, AFAIK about an issue breaking some extensions in the new more secure Javascript model. Second, a pair of bugs just to bump the version number to 1.0.5.

That's it, unless it changes. :)

Oh, and there are also 3 bugs nominated to block 1.0.5.

There is a 1.0.5 version at
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/f ... iary1.0.1/
It installs as
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.8)Gecko/20050620 Firefox/1.0.5
No alpha, beta or RC - any comments?

Latest I found there was a version of 1.0.4.

But here's where the 1.0.5 is hiding:

Is 1.0.5 a continuation of Deer Park or are they totally different projects? And if not, which should I use: 1.0.5 or DP? (I'm using DP over 1.0.4 right now)

They're totally different. 1.0.5 is an update for 1.0.4. Deer Park is destined to become 1.1. My advice would be to upgrade to Deer Park Alpha 2 when it comes out, or grab a recent nightly build.

Not so hidden now - Asa's blog points to an announcement on a new QA blog - http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/qa/

I hope 1.0.5 will have a fix for this vulnerability announced today by Secunia and which you can test here : http://secunia.com/multiple_browsers_di ... lity_test/ :)
