Detailed Updates

Below follows detailed updates on what each team is working on and toward. The leads highlighted in each section are the people you want to find if you're interested in helping out.

Desktop (Juanb)

  • Firefox
    • Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Mode will not ship in Firefox 28 -- more details to come from Johnathan Nightingale later this week
    • Firefox 28.0rc will require a respin due to an issue related to updates from Windows 8 Touch mode supported Betas

    • [geo] Working on improving Eideticker FPS measurement, starting with having a stable reference target to measure against. Building frame-timing analyzer to show frame anomalies so they can be matched to Eideticker results: *** will be hookable into existing requestAnimationFrame-based animation demos to dump timings.
