Firefox 3.1 Development

(see development meeting notes)

Beta 2

  • release announced on Monday at 3pm PST; updates were available shortly before
  • went very smoothly, making us think morning releases might be the way to go

Beta 3

  • blockers re-triaged, component leads all feel good about progress
  • need to be careful about holiday schedules
  • holiday time means we need to be cautious to ensure that people get patches up in time for reviews, etc
  • first draft schedule (component leads to think about this, beltzner to get QA estimates and double check assumptions):
    • Jan 13 - code freeze
    • Jan 19 - QA start
    • Jan 26 - release
  • goal will be to accelerate that schedule if possible, especially code freeze to QA start
