Hacks Series on Firefox Releases
dietrich: After writing the post, I ended up changing my approach quite a bit. The developer-centric features are pretty well covered, but what's really important are the site operator notices: this stuff is actually ready to be used, for real. But what's the difference between this and the release notes? The notes don't do a good job of saying "and here's what you can actually do, now."
potch: I see this more as a "push with context" of highlights of the MDN Fx39 for Developers page. Or things that are nifty, but so simple that they don't warrant their own post... so you could put in a little gif or something.
Are we OK with calling these "trainspotting?" Jason's the only person that's not super excited about the name. So let's go with it.
potch: We need a Hacks category for this.
havi: Maybe just "Firefox Releases", and we'll try to be consistent about using Trainspotting in the title. Firefox Releases category created, lives under Firefox.
potch: Split into two Tuesday/Tuesday posts in the future?
We're generally in favor of that in the future, but we also have to consider security things that are more time sensitive -- site operators will want to know about those things *before* release lands.
