Platform Support


  • Landed a patch to get better (/valid) crashreporter reports. Are we seeing that on Nightly?
  • NDKr5 should be deployed to build slaves now/soon
    • once its landed we'll test a few builds with try to confirm functionality and perf
    • then we'll land updated mozconfigs
  • NDKr6 was released this week
    • no major toolchain changes, no update required for build slaves
    • new tool to get stack traces from logcat output
  • Application install permissions
    • We added a way for the platform to see the network type
    • This adds a new permission request at installation
    • This will break automated updates
      • If a user selected "always update", this change will break that. This change will require a manual update.
