Notices / Schedule

Firefox 3.0.12

  • Schedule on the wiki
  • Currently 34 unfixed blockers. If you're on that list, you own a blocker.
  • Code freeze is in one week! June 16 at 11:59pm (but don't perendinate too long!)

Firefox 3.5 RC1

  • closed mozilla-central to all but approved patches and blockers on May 21
  • only a few blockers (mostly Javascript correctness) remaining
  • delivered "Firefox Preview" update to 800k+ beta users to get more feeedback and testing on the changes we've made over the past month
  • build and QA are waiting on cutoff, ready-to-roll
  • RC will be built when it's ready

Blocker Report


  • excluded the rest of the stats; they're not really relevant
  • we are fixing blockers very quickly, our test suites keep running further and finding that "one more issue"
  • very strict on approvals now
  • triage should be done at least twice a day
    • need to only block on absolutely can't-ship-without-it issues
    • need to think about backing out regression sources instead of trying to fix

Browser / Front End

  • Blockers: 1 remaining & 0 nominations
    • remaining bug is done, really - holding open in case any late-breaking locales go green
    • oh yeah, we have a new product icon thanks to the hard work of Alex, Anthony at the IconFactory, and our distributed visual design team who helped us work through the iterations


GFX Update

  • 1.9.1
  • GFX team working on finishing up Q2 goals and starting on 1.9.2 work

      • Question: will the drivers want Windows 7 patches backported to 1.9.1.x?
    • Pixman maintenance and performance - different image scalers
    • @font-face spec work, fixed Firefox 3.5 firstrun page by discovering broken font
    • Imagelib API work
    • Investigational work on multiprocess graphics
