    • finished implementing new Task Manager; separated it out from the App Manager
    • added "press and hold" Home button gesture for pulling up the Task Manager
    • going to wire up the Settings UI to the mozSettings interface over the next day or so
    • considering abstracting out the animation/drawing logic used for the Task Manager to improve the "app launch" and "app close" animations instead of them relying on scaling the "live" IFRAME; the Task Manager uses -moz-element to draw the app IFRAME's contents to the background-image of another element and the animations performed with those elements seem to have a much better performance/frame rate
    • created the beginnings of the "Market" app several weeks ago but haven't integrated the code in yet; would like to do this over the next week as well
  • timdream
