The 0.4 release will refresh the Weave Sync user experience to appeal to a wider range of users, even users with a single device connected to the Weave cloud. A secondary goal will be to reduce resource requirements, specially for Fennec. New data types synced will include form auto-fill data, as well as People (once available, see below).
As separate tracks, two additional sub-projects will run alongside the 0.4 release (but are not tied to Weave Sync):
- Web access for bookmarks and history.
- Creation and integration of a People store.
Update(2009-06-27): Small change of plans. 0.4 will not include the People store, that will come in a later release.
As with Firefox development (f.e. with Firefox3.5/Features), Weave tasks are prioritized. For Weave, the fuzzy prioritization scheme is:
- P1: really want
- P2: want
- P3: nice to have
