robocoder: no, really, Mozilla 1.4a was released yesterday. It's April 2nd today, so you're allowed to believe me :-)
I agree wholeheartedly, though, that the April Foolery goes too far. Slashdot was plain stupid yesterday, with the same fake article repeated five times. And the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter informed me that the Gentoo project was abandoning Portage in favour of RPM. I genuinely didn't know whether to believe this.
