Past highlights: landed more reader mode ux. (button bar, reading list). also introduced new bugs. localization going strong! (12 locales now + we got the process mostly covered). moved all build systems to Xcode 6.2. Disables Travis. And we just pushed out a new Aurora build.

Immediate focus:

  • 1144146 Correctly hide/show the url bar when the reader mode settings are visible
  • 1144165 Reader Mode controls should hide when navigating or switching tabs
  • 1144291 Navigating to a reader mode page from the history stack results in blank page
  • 1144404 Reader Mode URLS (about:reader) should not be part of history
  • 1144511 Serve reader mode content via the built-in web server


  • Move Reading List APIClient/Storage forward so that we can hookup buttons like Delete and Mark as Read
  • Finalize Reader Mode UX

Feature Focus

<Read Only>

  • Mobile Roadmap Trello Board
    • Funnel Review week, but nothing moved up into the active release branches
    • Updated as of yesterday. Anything to add/change?
  • iOS Roadmap in Aha!
  • New iOS Trello Board
    • iOS Trello board has been updated to reflect the scope that has been deferred to V1.1
    • Note- the 'Parking Lot' items are not Out. They have been called out as things that we want, but only if not at the expense of other items. In some cases we will launch with partial implementation with just most important functionality. These are items 'At Risk'.
    • Final Build Date - need to discuss this in a bit more depth, but we will likely have to have a final build in hand for May 1st, to allow for testing, and for submission timelines for Apple (~1 week).
    • New Status Report w/ Charts going up shortly here

Round Table

  • Meeting improvement discussion
    • Etherpad:
      • Consensus: People like chatting with others on the team, and knowing what everyone is working on
        • Other notes: Too long, hearing what people are working on lets others emphasize issues
    • Proposal: Everyone can summarize their work in bullets briefly; we can make an auto-generated wiki page of bug lists for those who are interested in that;
      • Suggestion of no more read-only
        • I like that there is more variety - imo, easier to maintain focus on; worried about length
      • Finkle would like more people to add to the topics of the week
        • I agree - "here is the stuff that is particularly relevant to everyone!"
