Topics for This Week

Syncing Reading List
We can now sync Reading List items across Android devices and Desktop. Work has been uplifted to Fx38 and should be live for Fx38 Beta 2. Great job! (Known issue: Reading List sync defaults to off -- tracked by bug 1149226.)

  • This week: additional Reading List and Firefox Sync scheduling bugs.
  • Fun project: download pre-built Gecko libraries from automation (bug 1128362)
    • Never built C++ again (we hope).
    • Ready for limited beta testing:
      • hg pull -r 97c890d9a7bbd043d9acfac8bbce92464578d478
      • Execute
        mach gradle-install
      • Execute
        mach gradle clean app:packageDebug
        and watch Gecko libraries get downloaded (~20megs).
    • Entire process takes about 4 minutes on my machine (pull to APK on device).
    • Blog post to follow!

A disgusting patch for iOS session restore.

Follow up work on QR codes (with zxing) and Voice Recognition on Android.

Reminded that: Samsung Android is not Google Android (a.k.a. TouchWiz sux).

Referred in an ex-colleague, Emily Toop.

Good Friday/Easter Monday are public holidays in the UK.
