Firefox 3.6.11 and 3.5.14
- Schedule has been on hold while dealing with the above
- Still approving and marking bugs as blockers
- Existing approvals / blockers will be marked correctly when bug 596293 is fixed
Firefox 4 Beta
- inserting a beta 6 to fix two regressions from beta 5
- this means that what you thought of as "beta 6" is now "beta 7"
- this means that beta 7 is the feature freeze milestone
- this does not mean that we're altering the schedule, still aiming for code freeze tomorrow
Firefox 4 Beta
- a handy list of triage queries is available for all!
(from our goals):
- [ON TRACK] Feature complete Firefox 4
- [DONE] Switch to Tab
- [DONE] App Tabs - Scope for 4.0 reduced (non-global), near feature complete.
- [DONE] Extension Manager - Bug list is converging, still a lot of work to do.
- [DONE] Web Console
- [ON TRACK] Notification UI - Geo and EM notifications done, http auth next.
- [ON TRACK] New Theme - Windows and Mac good, Linux catching up now
- [AT RISK] Silent updates on Windows
- [DROPPED] Inspector
- [DROPPED] Account Manager - WIP patches posted, but we can't contain the review load and code risk.
- [AT RISK] Dirty profile startup within 20% of clean profile startup (modulo extensions, plugins; on windows)
- Current status: Lots of data has been collected and analyzed, but no solid conclusions have shaken out.
- Details page
- Shawn has an updated blog post. Read it for more info.
- Bugs on file that help:
(there is a team-by-team goals breakdown, as well)
- [DONE] Hardware acceleration of video and other HTML and SVG content, as well as user interface, on by default for compatible hardware on all Tier-1 desktop and mobile platforms.
- [DONE] Fully support the WebGL 1.0 spec, with support turned on by default in a Firefox 4 beta on platforms that support OpenGL or OpenGL ES.
- [MISSED] security: zero reproducible high/crit > 30 days
- [DONE] Support multi-process Fennec.
- [DONE] Support Jetpacks running in separate processes and never blocking the Fennec UI. NOTE: jetpack team hasn't actually integrated this code yet, but it works in small test environments.
- OpenGL accelerated layers on Mac *very close* - one bug remaining. Should land today.
- OpenGL accelerated layers on Linux much futher out. Will definitely miss beta 7.
- All goals completed already --- Fixing regressions/blockers
- SVG images landed
- Removed -moz prefix from box-shadow and border-radius properties
- Async plugin painting making progress, should land soon for Linux, needs Windows/Mac love
- cjones update on remote layers and puppet-widgets: close to landing
- Landed 'buffered' support for WebM (Q3 goal)
- New record # checkins in August (2,707); 38% higher then previous record;
- Last month, 45% of load was on TryServer.
- If you use TryServer, make sure to CHOOSE what exactly you want
- do not waste cycles on "default" unless you know thats exactly what you want
- IT downtime this weekend; 650castro offline means tree closure
- Most of the new IX machines in production
- New data center nearly ready for use
- Need extra eyes after code landings? Let us know and we can post it to the nightly tester list - http://blog.mozilla.com/tomcat/2010/08/15/introduction-of-the-nightly-testers-list/ -- tomcat
