Thunderbird 3.1 (Lanikai)

Lanikai Alpha 1


Not much in 3.1a1, because it hasn't been driven much. I've posted a message proposing that, in the interest of getting in the habit of doing regular releases, we proceed with the following schedule anyway:

  • String/code freeze date: 2010-01-12 (Tuesday)
  • Branch Gecko, cut hackbranch, land async changes: 2010-01-13 (Wednesday)
  • l10n-mozilla-1.9.2 freeze date: 2010-01-18 (Monday)
  • Build/relbranch date: 2010-01-19 (Tuesday)
  • Ship date: 2010-02-03 (Wednesday)

Are there reasons not to go forward with this?

  4. SUMO for MoMo aka SuMoMo - SuMoMo project plan
    1. theming live on
    2. since SuMoMo uses SSL, waiting for GS to give us GS search widget code that we can put on the sidebar that works with SSL, expected a fix before Christmas (not rocket science since since all the GS widgets except the Satisfaction Search widget that we are using allow SSL, followed up with GS developer January 4) - still no update - expected tonight 12jan2010, hopefully won't have to implement workaround which is to not serve up non SSL Satisfaction Search Widgets to IE 6,7 and 8 users, instead serve just a simple link
    3. content - hoping to get some more of JenZed's time and other contributors to finish this week:
      1. Priority 1 - if edits and drafts from JenZed are done and contributor start and finishes Thunderbird 3 for Windows 7 users, then we will be done this week!
      2. Priority 2 - if edits and drafts from JenZed are done and contributor starts and finishes Moving from Thunderbird 2 to 3 - 530133, then we will be done this week!
  5. Key Support stats from the following graphic:
    1. approximately 85/ day (601/7 back to normal Thunderbird 3.0 levels after the holidays), # of visitors 333,000 seems a like a bug since it's an order of magnitude higher than 30000, will followup with GS)
