Project Updates


  • tpaint and ts_paint regressions are ~1% in worst case for PGO builds, so these are wrapping up now
  • Focusing on tab animation tests now. The TART test is now feeding numbers into Datazilla, and we've got an idea of the target we're trying to hit here.
  • While one or two of us get our heads wrapped around tab animation performance, some devs are shifting from performance back to behavioural bug fixing. Please watch for regressions on UX, and file bugs!
  • Notable bugs fixed within the last week:
    • bug 880388 - Show an accurate preview of the size of a widget when dragging a widget over a target in customization mode
    • bug 896887 - Hide the menu bar by default on Linux
    • bug 865916 - Create a Character Encoding widget and subview
  • UX branch bundle request: bug 909830
