Sprint objectives

  • In last sprint we reverted the changes that gave us separated views (we keep the separation of fronted-bankend) so the all views separation commits have been rolled back in master build.
  • The reason for doing this is that we won't have the expected quality in master if we leave it as it is:
    • Our navigation was not the perfect one, as we were missing some important pieces like support for pre-rendering and navigation transition.
    • Some regressions were detected in master that provokes rebuilds in the contact list when Contacts is in background (see this video to check it )
      • This is due to the use of BFCache that is going to save a lot of memory when the app is going to the background, as it will evict the cached views that we are not using anymore.
      • To fix this we could use the virtual list with the DOM scheduler from Etienne but there is not enough time to do it in 2.5.
  • We have created a branch called NGA where we have some separate views (#new and #open), and where we will experiment and develop until we reach the quality expected.
  • In this sprint we are focused on landing all the pending NGA work in this new branch.
    • This will include landing the overlay, the list and settings separated views.
  • In order to keep the quality that we will need for 2.5 release, we have leave master with the single page navigation. We won't land in master anything else, just blockers..So post 2.5 release of contacts app could come from that development branch.
