Platform-specific Support Update
- Good progress on 64-bit Mac OS X builds. Once patch for bug 435041 lands, only remaining work is complex text input (masayuki) and Cocoa printing (mstange).
- Gecko1.9.2/Firefox3.6 and Java for Mac OS X: There is currently no Java plugin for Firefox 3.6 on Mac OS X due to the removal of OJI, LiveConnect, and XPCOM plugin support. JEP requires those components. A new Java plugin is due to be released within a month which will be compatible with Firefox 3.6.
- 1.9.2 blockers need to be re-triaged
- JS trace tests refactored
- large parts of nanojit merge complete

- Enabling PGO for SQLite, mozStorage and Places code on m-c this week
- Got JS components joined (thanks to some help from fqueze), testing now for perf effect
- Dirty profile testing being enabled this week by Alice, testing two different Places profiles. More coming - send suggestions of dirty testing to me
- Details of other ongoing work available on my weekly update blog post and on the project wiki.
- Close to having necko IPC protocol hooked up and initialized
- Some high-level design progress (from conversation with BZ)
- IPC probably "main chrome thread <-> content process", not "Socket transport thread <-> content process"
- Probably use "if(ContentProcess)" within existing necko code, rather than create new set of classes for Content-side necko.
- Issue: which protocols (network; file?) need IPC?
- Issue: goodbye standalone necko?
- Set up design discussion for workweek
- NPStream implementation uncovered some nasty race conditions... discussion ongoing in mdt.dom and chromium-dev
- It's at least clear that prior run-to-completion behavior within the plugin itself will no longer be true
- joe still working on tilebrowser graphics: ETA undetermined
- need basic graphics before people can really start working on events
- TB126.96.36.199 this week
- Turned off TP3, fast-talos machines yesterday.
- yeaaaah for faster, newer, TP4!
- New dirty-profile talos suite coming later this week.
- l10n nightly updates on mozilla-central as of Sunday night (16th).
- users on nightly before 16th need to manually pave-over-install like usual
- working on getting l10n nightly updates on 1.9.2
- WinCE build-on-checkin now on mozilla-central, mozilla-192
- no unittests, talos
- proposed changes to fennec linux-arm unittest/talos jobs
- run desktop unittests during the day, on n810s at night
- will add another 20 n810s to the (tiny) pool, and revisit.
- Project metrics charts (timr)
- Who is allowed to mark
- Answer: all drivers, not just endgame drivers
- should we mark the set of bugs that are fixed on mozilla-1.9.2 by virtue of branching as fixed1.9.2+ (beltzner)
- Core/Toolkit/Firefox: 6034 bugs FIXED since Dec-01-2008 and Aug-13-2009 (warning: takes a while to load)
- this would miss some NSS and NSPR bugs, but they're harder to query
- it would also cause a good deal of bugspam :)
