  • [mconley] Apparently, I can set breakpoints and debug on OS X with XCode in an opt build?

Windows 10

  • [dolske] 40 shipped, good feedback. Focus of upcoming work is Edge migrators, metrics around new features, finishing theme polish.
  • [jaws] On-screen keyboard has landed for tablets on Firefox 42 on Windows.
    • If you have a tablet or touch-capable device we would appreciate your testing. If you have a touch-friendly laptop, you can disable some of the hardware checks in about:config by toggling ui.osk.detect_physical_keyboard and ui.osk.require_tablet_mode
    • There are plans to support non-tablet mode by default in the future, but only when we have more time to invest in the physical keyboard detection code.
