    • No longer scheduled for 0.7 or 0.8
    • Moved to projects page
    • No date yet for E10S support
    • API's will continue to be developed to be E10S 'ready'
  • Flightdeck 1.0a3
    • Month long dev cycle June 28-July 27
    • Staged on July 28
    • Launched August 3
    • Release went well
    • Next release we should be better about poking at the staging site
  • Flightdeck 1.0a4 status
    • Freeze was August 9
    • SDK 0.6 not in 1.0a4, will be moved to 1.0a5
    • Bespin upgrade held back from 1.0a4
    • Staging will be August 10 and staging will be August 17
  • SDK 0.7 Status
    • New owner needed for Page Mods
    • At risk: Page Mods, Widget, Manifest, Window (but still a good chance), Sidebar(maybe)
    • On track: Panel (needs reviewer), Places, Clipboard, Notification
    • Documentation is still WIP- will have update later today
  • New SDK 1.0 proposed features
    • Prompting Notifications- we all like it
    • Access to password store- we like it, should think about cookies for auth also
      • Propose enhancement to request api to send appropriate cookies when an add-on accesses a particular domain
    • SQLite- unnecessary with simple storage already supposrted, perhaps more appropriate for a third party library (which already exists), if we want this someday, we should use IndexDB instead when it's ready and only if people show a consistent need for this feature
    • Preferences- Already on 1.0 list- should be able to distinguish between add-on prefs and application prefs


  • Need new owner for Page Mods API (Myk)
  • Check with Noelle on docs status (Daniel)
