Yes, Mozilla 1.7 has been finally released:
http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/

Check out the release notes here:
http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.7/
To see the changes, some of which include:
A new option to prevent sites from using JavaScript to block the browser's context menu.
A new set of icons for files that are associated with Mozilla on Windows.

Password Manager has a "show passwords" mode which will display saved passwords. You will need to enter your master password if you are using one.

The "Set As Wallpaper" feature now has a confirmation dialog.
Linux GTK2 builds have improved support for OS themes.
Cookie dialogs have been reworked to make them more usable.
Date handling, especially on OS X, has been improved.
It is now possible to fine-tune Mozilla's pop-up blocking using two preferences (dom.popup_maximum and dom.popup_allowed_events) but there's no UI for that yet. Even without a UI, users should notice a greater variety of pop-ups blocked (primarily mouseover pop-ups) and a limit of 20 or so open at one time - regardless of whether pop-up blocking is active. This will provide some protection from sites that open hundreds of windows in a loop.

Downloaded files are now moved to the target directory as soon as the user selects the desired location. This was the frequently reported bug 55690.

There is now user interface to activate Smooth Scrolling (Preferences -> Appearance).

Mozilla now supports basic FTP upload.

Enjoy!

LMAO :D

Oh dear ... you have actually linked to the Mozilla 1.6 installers for both Linux and Windows :p

I used your link and download the Linux version, installed it and have been puzzling for the last 5 minutes why I still have Mozilla 1.6 - really had me confused! :p I just went and double checked the package, and sure enough it is for the 1.6 version. :D

What is the difference between FireFox and Mozilla? I am using Firefox 0.9 at this moment.

Mozilla comes with a inbuilt email suite whereas Firefox is a stand-alone browser. You can get a stand-alone email client as well which is called Mozilla Thunderbird. I have both Mozilla 1.7 and Firefox 0.9 installed, but I do prefer the more clean-cut Firefox IMO. :)
