Version numbering

  • considering 3.1 -> 3.5 to indicate increased scope
  • will need to figure out how to update all our tools effectively (build, bugzilla, AMO, etc.) -- detailed plan coming this week
  • beta 3 will still be shipped under 3.1 moniker
  • labels existing increase in scope vs original 3.1 plan, not a willingness to further increase scope
  • next step is to take it to dev-planning


  • 12 3.1 cases out of 1801
    • All fixed (detachable tabs, AVG screwing with Enter in location bar etc)


  • 7 late-l10n requests, the list
  • Fennec on the l10n dashboard, blog posts about that are up by Pike and stas
  • when do we want to consider a l10n-freeze for b4? (beltzner)
    • want to spend some of the time hunting down untranslated/mistranslated strings there (axel)
    • earlier better of course (axel)
    • suggest 2 weeks after b3 launch (beltzner)


Release Engineering

  • Ready to ship 3.0.7
  • Ready to build 3.1b3
  • Need to do some testing to find any weirdness with 3.1 -> 3.5 version change.


  • Compatibility status
