Round table

Major Update

  • Already tested FF2->FF3 major updates, and FF2-> partner build major updates, to make sure it works: bug 394046 and bug 413454
  • will issue update to Fx2 users who are on the beta channel first
    • offering major update to beta users is how we beta-tested the major update process for FF1.5->FF2 major update
    • should be a bit more aggressive in the 2.0.0.x beta channel firstrun pages to let people know this is coming
  • will decide after we release if we want to do major update for Fx2 -> 3.0 or if we're going to wait for 3.0.1
    • partner builds will definitely be waiting for 3.0.1
