Round Table

Jorg K

  • Landed:
    • bug 1307516 Bustage fix (plugin related Mozmill tests fail due to M-C changes)
    • bug 1307017 Crash fix (Kent's fix really)
    • bug 1263357 M-C: Editing problem: caret confusion in paragraph mode (shift enter)
    • bug 862395 Bustage fix (changed parameters of nsAlertsService::ShowAlertNotification)
  • In Progress
    • bug 1151366 Composition security bug (filed Apr. 2015, being worked on since Feb. 2016)
  • Awaiting review
  • Other:


  • exploring shipping 64-bit for 52 - it seems to me we should be following Firefox's lead and offer 64bit to users, and not risk being left behind
  • betas builds - and process is improving greatly due to l10n and other numerous fixes coming from releng, aleth and others. THANKS!
