  • [nalexander] artifact builds (--disable-compile-environment) no longer require (or use!) an Android NDK. File fallout against Bug 1220476.
  • [nalexander] In Push meeting at this time. Autopush HTTP REST API in flux, partly due to secreview, partly due to first consumer (us!) coming to the table.

We have been fixing a good number of bugs for 1.2 and working on 2.0 features.

  • Added caching for Top Sites which prevents lengthy delays when running the frecency calculations
  • Big database configuration change; should help pauses and maybe avoid startup hangs. Scream loudly if you see problems.


Rebooting contributor engagement.

Versioning discussion.

Moving toward more rapid releases.
