Product Status Updates
Firefox Future (8, 9, 10)
- Nothing to say, keep on rocking mozilla-central
- FYI, the Aurora add-on compatibility bump will hopefully happen this week
Firefox Current (3.5, 3.6, 4.0 - 7.0)
- There will be a Firefox 7.0.1 post-mortem tomorrow @ 10:00 am PDT
- Work on the Java front end is moving ahead
- The beta channel has been updated with Thunderbird 8.
- Add-on compatibility bump has been run for 7 -> 8. Much earlier than our previous cycles and with 8 -> 9 we plan to run this before 9 gets onto beta.
- Lightning is now available for beta builds, download it from the developer channel on AMO.
- If you hadn't noticed, Thunderbird is starting to use Feature pages to track work. See the tb-planning topic for more information.
Older Branch Work
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.
