Open Action Items

  • ActionMonkey status: JavaScript:ActionMonkey
    • bsmedberg is generating builds for comparative perftests... this got lost, will have it today


  • XPCOMGC status
    • Working through 'make check' in necko. Deadlocks mostly solved through magic in nsAutoLock/nsAutoMonitor
    • Necko is being problematic: in particular, the current necko behavior of close-stream-on-last-release is not possible with finalizers. This means that's we'll need to retrofit necko (and perhaps necko clients) with explicit-close of channels. Right now I'm just commenting out assertions and working around problems, but this might not scale.
    • But this means that getting performance numbers from a running browser may be quite difficult. Should I instead attempt to create some artificial large-object-graph to test GC performance?
    • Going to work on tools to make verification easier: simple dehydra scripts to annotate classes that should be GC or stack objects, and a tool to inform valgrind of live/free MMgc memory
  • Discussion of Moz2/next Firefox release
