Description

11 years ago
We don't have the luxury of using separate files and server side rewrites for 1.5.0.x (like we do for 2.0.0.x), since that version uses single files for all point releases.

In order to provide beta users the correct message for the 1.5.0.12rc, we need to check for that version in the UA string and use JS to display the correct content, which will be similar to:
https://www.trunk.stage.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/2.0.0.4rc/whatsnew/

Does anyone know what file is equivalent for the 2.0.0.x releasenotes or exactly what pages show up after install and/or update on 1.5.0.x?  It will be nice to also port the link below for 1.5.0.x users:
https://www.trunk.stage.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/2.0.0.4rc/releasenotes/

Currently, we have http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/updated ... for the beta push of 1.5.0.12rc, we need to say something about the beta program.   

For the final release of 1.5.0.12, we probably should update this page again to say something about the 1.5 end of life, and make it more obvious that they should update to 2.0 (either by waiting for major update or installed the latest version).
