Action Items

Schedule & Progress on Upcoming Releases

Firefox 4

  • still waiting on final blockers for Beta 8
  • will be shipped simultaneously with Fennec 2 Beta 3
  • optimistic schedule is:
    • freeze Thursday Dec 2
    • builds Friday Dec 3
    • ship Thursday Dec 9

Firefox 3.6.13 and 3.5.16

  • Released to the beta audience yesterday
    • 3.6.13 is throttled @ 25%
    • 3.5.16 is not throttled as AUS can't support what we want and there are very little testers on the beta channel anyway
  • Still on schedule
  • The new billboard to encourage people to move off of 3.0 (and/or other unsupported releases) is getting finished up and will hopefully go live a week after 3.6.13

Add-on Builder 1.0a6

Input 2.1

  • Release Date: 12/9
  • Features: Ideas, Siphon by Device Types (for mobile), Better search on past releases

Fun-ness with the 2.0 release (for searches over the entire beta): sync, panorama, fast and slow

Jetpack SDK 0.10

  • major deliverables all landed or pushed off as not beta blockers (except for one for which we're still trying to determine status)
  • product-wide reviews over the last week identified a set of remaining issues, mostly around exposure of experimental, internal, or obsolete APIs and functionality
  • remaining issues are being resolved at very high rate
  • RC1 any day now
  • track progress on blockers via bug 611250

Highlights / Notices

  • starting full outreach now for Firefox 4 product l10n, long tail isn't actually all that long no more. 61 out of 86 locales are sign-ed off for beta, some 8 more are reasonably close. (Axel)
