Topics for This Week
- Tablet UI
- The new Tablet UI is enabled by default. Lucas made a small tweak to silence a Talos checkerboarding test. Lucas and William looked into using eideticker to verify if the Talos failure, but eideticker currently is phone-only. We might just do some manual subjective testing before reverting Lucas' tweak.
- Video and Lollipop
- Snorp has uplifted a set of patches to Fx34 that should enable video and MP4 audio support on Lollipop. MP3 audio is still broken.

TL;DR - I've been mostly working on the iOS project.
- I have finished the first iteration of the Share UI (screenshot) which I hope to land this week.
