Status Updates

  • Reviews
  • Unit Tests
    • Thanks to asuth who has helped with fixing our two main intermittent faults over the last week (hopefully now fixed):
      • bug 463594 - Mac Leak & Bloat failures, as a result of OS X Address Book interface and shutdown issues (need to do a little follow up work on filing/moving appropriate bugs).
      • bug 468050 - Resolving gloda issues.
  • Leak & Bloat
    • Moved forward with mozmill integration. Now have mozmill starting up from python script and integrating into the Thunderbird profile - just need to get it running the actual tests.
  • Password Manager
    • bug 467965 Improved nsISmtpServer to make the password manager changes cleaner.
    • bug 468444 Fixed constants for default ports so that we can get at them consistently and from js
    • Implemented SMTP protocol handlers for smtp/smtps and started writing tests for the other protocols

    • bug 466527 Diagnosed problem with What's New page.

    • bug 467538 Replace nsIMsgRecipientArray with a simple, javascript-compatible array.

  • Write down extended roadmap overview for the address book (based on discussion during MoMo work week).

      • complete MARs need redoing bug 468488, bug 468468

  • Cleaned up Conversation List added some color though still bare
    • Added top toolbar

    • Pushed all changes into exptoolbar
  • Worked on Conversation Reader
    • Added some threading indicators, initially very sparse to make space known and available
    • Added read/unread indicators
