Next version of Firefox set for September release

The next version of the Firefox Web browser, which will be called Firefox 1.5, is slated for released later this summer, and development work continues on new features that include an automatic update service. Chris Hofmann, lead engineer at The Mozilla Foundation, the Mountain View, Calif.-based open-source group that oversees the Firefox project, said today that contrary to news reports, the release hasn’t been delayed.

“There really hasn’t been any official date” for a release, Hofmann said. “We haven’t ever published a date.” Instead, the target time frame for a new release has always been mid- to late summer, he said.
