(Alphabetical order)

Gaia Architecture Work

  • Telemetry library
   1198346 -- Addon Metrics has landed
   1167710 -- Telemetry Setting has landed
   1176986 -- Will land today -- working thru try errors on TV (??)
   1177099 -- Payload Compression -- In progress this week    
   1171685 -- FTU Ping IMEI hash -- In progress this week
   On track to finish initial set of features
   QA started testing yesterday.
  • Web app bridge
    • Window to Window communication to do it synchronously
  • Service workers
    • Not many updates. Possibly SW could be even disabled for content in 2.5
  • SMS app conversion
   it's been decided we won't be able to do split views in a way that's good enough for the user, so we defer this until post-2.5
   still working on services-in-worker though. Still issues with the mozAPIs that need to be an iframe or in a hidden window -- performance issues, architecture issues. Worst case is that we'll load all services in-window, so it's still good to split the code in smaller services anyway.
  • Music app conversion
       Built-in playlists landed
       Search feature is in progress and hoping to land that in a week.
       Working on performance optimization and integration test automation
  • Contacts app conversion
    • Difficult decision to make: we will revert the view splitting from master to land it on a development branch for NGA, in order to keep stability and quality in master.
  • Sync
    • On schedule to land the Sync feature disabled in 2.5 for bookmarks, history and passwords, and enabling the feature in master the day after.

   SMS: except NGA, coming soon is: we'll remove the dialogs for draft saving/replacing. Please report about any issues around drafts once this lands. (bug 1176976). We also work on improving the support of the low-storage condition.
