News

We have a new reference device we're targeting, the "Toro Maguro". There are some more details available internally, and we're in the process of making more of those details public (lawyers talking to lawyers etc.).

  • these will be shipping out to b2g team members in the next few weeks. They'll be available generally sometime after that.

Administrivia

  • Will you be around or on vacation during next week's meeting time?

Status updates

  • mrbkap: Wifi seems to be coming up. I can get the mac address and debug spew shows that the wireless card sees networks in the area. It should be pretty easy to connect (just a matter of writing some code). The only concern I have is that things seem to be working even without files that I thought were important, so I still have some understanding to do.

    • Basis for new and improved Task Manager is done - awaiting pull request to be merged (vingtetun already reviewed, minor code clean up issues reported are now resolved and ready to merge again)
    • Ended up having success using -moz-element to draw the app iframes to the background for the "card" elements in the Task Manager UI - Would like to now test using this method to draw the app launch animation (as per. vingtetun's suggestion - http://hacks.mozilla.org/2010/08/mozelement/ )
