Product Status Updates

Firefox 4

  • We're still processing the feedback, but beta 10 looks great!
  • Firefox 4 is awesome. Users want us to release. We're doing great work (~318 bugs fixed since beta 10) and converging, but slightly slower than anticipated
  • We will decide about beta 11 (and a possible 12) by this Tuesday (tomorrow)
    • See the newsgroup post for reasoning / options
      • tl;dr - If we think we can get all betaN hardblockers by this Friday, we will build this Friday. If we think they will take longer, we build this Tuesday to get coverage for the >318 fixes we already have

Firefox 3.6

  • 3.6.14 and 3.5.17 are on the beta channel, look good so far
  • Currently on track to ship the 8th (on schedule)
  • The proposed schedule for 3.6.15 and 3.5.18 will be sent around this week

Mobile Firefox

  • Beta 4 real coming soon

Thunderbird

  • Lots of progress on various planning pieces from last week's off-site; watch for details around Thunderbird 3.3 and more to coalesce in tb-planning.

Older Branch Work

Drumbeat

  • Great work from WebMadeMovies and Univeral Subtitles team's on PBS Newshour State of the Union project. Demo and posts here and here
  • Getting ready to ship "OpenAttribute," the world's simplest attribution tool. (Post Drumbeat Festival project.)

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.
