Product Status Updates

Firefox 4

We Shipped Beta 7

  • ... and it's awesome!
  • Next up: Beta 8!
    • Schedule will be quicker for these ones, they aren't landmark releases the way beta 7 was, they are incremental progressions as we clamp down blockers
      • If you can't come up with a good reason why a bug should go into beta 8 instead of beta 9 → not a beta 8 blocker
    • Beta 8 schedule will be discussed in tomorrow's development call and wednesday's product call, each at 11am PST.

A quick list of Firefox 4 triage queries is available:

Firefox 3.6 & 3.5

  • Code freeze for 3.6.13 and 3.5.16 is this Thursday, 2010-11-18 @ 11:59 PST

  • Plan to final ship on Thursday, December 9th

Drumbeat

  • Drumbeat Festival follow-up: early work started on 4 new Festival projects.
  • Lightning talk on Festival coming next week.

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation.
