Tabs on Top
Big Files

BigFiles Milestone 2 was built last Friday. Here is the link to the builds directory.

The list of fixed and remaining issues for this milestone is here.

In particular, note that BigFiles currently misbehaves when mixing normal and cloud attachment types, and when replying to messages that sent cloud attachments. Also, behaviour gets a little strange when there are multiple compose windows opened. Saving/restoring drafts is also broken.

Lightning Updates

  • Lightning 1.3b3 is building, will be available on AMO this evening. Fixes an issue with invitations and adds a toolbar button to open the unifinder.
  • Lightning 1.2.2 will be released, containing these bugs
  • AMO can only show one public version, which is always the latest version by upload date. We will run into problems after 1.3 is released and we need to release 1.2.3+. There is a possible workaround though, but it would be better to fix it in AMO.
  • bug jsical is still a lot of work :( hoping to provide a test build in a week or two.
  • Contributer working on a project to use mozmill to take Lightning screen shots and associate the elements with code locations.
