Product Status Updates

Firefox 5

  • This week we merge to aurora for the first time!
    • This means the last day to land fixes for Firefox 5 is today (2011-04-11)
      • really? Don't we have until 4-12?
  • Extensive discussions in dev.planning, but Tuesday we take the current mozilla-central and use it to create a new mozilla-aurora, as part of our new rapid release program.
  • JP has compiled a high level overview of the new process, the decisions made and those still outstanding
  • If you have engineering questions, come to the Tuesday engineering call (11am, conf #8605)
  • If you have high level product questions, come to the Wednesday product call (11am, conf #8605)

Firefox 4, 3.6, 3.5

  • Firefox 4 Macaw, the first update to Firefox 4, is slated to ship April 26th (why use a code name?)
    • Fixes need to make it in by tomorrow, 2011-04-12!
      • Fixes land on the default branch of mozilla-central and releases/mozilla-2.0. Mobile will transplant or pull from releases/mozilla-2.0 for their update
      • If a bug is fixed on mozilla-central and hasn't made it for Macaw we will hg transplant it tomorrow. We don't want to do this as it adds risk...please take care of landing the fixes yourself!
    • If you have a critical fix for Macaw (the bar is high as Macaw is small and directed) not being tracked for the update, please set it to blocking2.0:? and send an email to release drivers with justification. Please note the default response will be "this can wait for Firefox 5".
  • Firefox 3.6.17 and Firefox 3.5.19 have been pushed back a week to align with Macaw
    • We'll be deferring outstanding blockers and only focus on security bugs fixed in Macaw (so we don't 0day ourselves)
    • Fixes need to make it in by tomorrow, 2011-04-12!
  • The prompted update for Firefox 4 (3.5.x and 3.6.x → 4.0.1) is scheduled for 2011-05-03
    • This has to go after 3.6.17 and 3.5.19 due to bug 646054
  • Draft plan of how to end 3.5 support will be sent around this week for comments
