Polish polish polish :) <-- yeah Include

  • This week

-Working on 'country-code' issue. How to implement it to 'Attention-screen' should be discussed in order to analyze how is the best way for getting the highest performance. [Important] After PR of Etienne I've added the missing functionality for threading properly with 'phonenumberlib'. Here you have RAM Analysis with the proposal as I was requested by Vivien. Conclusion of the analysis: With the proposal we have increased from 50% to 200% the available RAM that we have currently in Master branch!.

    • USSD:
      • Update of the USSD functionality according to the latest UX guidelines ( under revision by the UX team. PR to be sent tomorrow (26/09) the latest.
      • Bug reported regarding notifying the closing of a USSD session:
      • There is another issue under discussion with the "platform guys" regarding the closing of USSD sessions by any app with access to mozMobileConnection or only by the "owner" of the session. The USSD feature only accepts 1 active connection at a time as defined by the specification. This issue is related to the fact that more than 1 app may want to send USSD messages (such as the Dialer app and the Cost Control app) and a proper management of the connections has to be made in these situations.
