  • Tarako: Planning continues for how we'll test the current catalog of apps on Tarako. Lisa will have a device by middle of next week, and 4 more should be available to ship by the end of the week. For more details, see Caitlin's or Thomas' Tarako reports.
  • Android packaged app update: apps now install, hooray! Huge thanks to Austin King and Rob Hudson for fixing this. Note: We've experienced some crashes that may need additional investigation, will file additional bugs if it continues.
  • IARC: BD outreach complete to 93 devs with 318 apps, and there are now less than 1000 unrated apps. There is no bug yet filed for the next email blast, but the plan will be finalized on April 11.
  • LINE v1.3 has been submitted and is in review. This update adds stickers and improves performance.
