Product Status Updates (voice updates)

Firefox Desktop

Speaker Location: MV (johnath)

  • Social: bug 764869, bug 764872, bug 773351, bug 770695: big pieces of the work that makes Social actually semi-usable have landed. That means that you can test social features using "MoTown" in Nightly builds, by setting social.enabled = true.
  • navigator.id DOM and core landed last week, the beginnings of native Persona integration
  • Taras' weekly performance/snappy update. Highlights include:
    • JS profiling using the built in profiler
    • Reducing the cache nuking hit that telemetry tells us we hit on 10-20% of pages
    • Also starting to file performance bugs on popular addons
  • OMGCDN!
    • We are moving to a CDN for initial Firefox downloads. The extra speed improves download success & conversion by 10-20% in some locales!
    • Software updates are still using the volunteer mirror network, for now.

Firefox Mobile

Speaker Location: MV (johnath)

  • Spinning a 14.0.2 to fix jellybean specific crashes
  • More testing on ARMv6 to find stability gotchas and minimum requirements
  • FF15 (with Tablet support) firming up!
    • BUT has anyone had a lot of hangs with Firefox Beta on Asus Transformers? Let mfinkle/blassey know.
  • Scott wrote an excellent blog post about font inflation

Firefox OS

Speaker Location: Dietrich

  • Gaia: Working camera! And photo filters in the Gallery! Animated SVG analog clock and FM Radio dial landed. There are risks in email plumbing, calendar, 1st Run, and settings, some in visual design access and some in implementation. More visual design implementation is landing every day. Weekly meeting notes.
  • Platform: Security review for bluetooth is done. The media stream components of Camera back-end are in review. Cell broadcast was added to v1 requirements. Lots of software update pieces under development and discussion. Lots of E10s work ongoing. Weekly meeting notes.
  • Release: Technical Release Plan sign-offs held on Gecko base, branching, updates and testing. Blockers for internal dogfooding are now tracked with [B2GTest:Blocker].
  • QA: Completed ~60% of the Gaia requirements deep dive and added more tests cases for additional feature coverage. Built a webapp on devices that tests battery, geolocation, vibration, fullscreen and orientation. Daily build smoke tests still show critical regressions.
  • Triage is now daily. Details in the weekly meeting schedule announcement.

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.
