Impact Mozilla



  • With 0.8 we now have support for detecting and showing Firefox 3.1 specific information for people running that (beta) version. Going to start adding content for these users on the most common issues articles shortly.
  • Thanks to Wil Clouser, we now have SUMO support in Verbatim, meaning localizers can translate the site UI using this interface, which is a lot more straightforward than the built-in SUMO UI. I'll be blogging about this tomorrow with more info on how to log in.




Developer Tools



  • SUMO 0.8 shipped with some issues on Thursday, so we pushed out on Friday to fix. New search not yet turned on as we're trying to solve an issue with the indexing [[1]] [[2]] for more info.
  • Verbatim support for SUMO
  • Community Store 2.0 released, now has galleries for contributors, search and various other bug fixes
  • Most of webdev on vacation this week, or trapped in the snowpocalypse. laura, rdoherty, lars, lorchard are on deck.

Foundation Updates

  • Mark worked on the 2009 Foundation budget and related tasks.
  • Eitan Isaacson completed his Foundation-funded project to create a test framework for non-interactive inspection of the accessibility APIs provided by web browsers; among other things, this allows comparison of Firefox's accessibility support with that of IE, Safari, Opera, etc. For more information see Eitan's blog post and related progress reports, as well as his slide presentation.
  • Frank started public discussion for the CA inclusion request from S-TRUST.
