Seth Bindernagel has posted the localization schedule for Firefox 3.1 beta 2. The string freeze is going to be on Thursday, October 30 at 11:59pm (Mountain View time), which is just over two weeks from now. Code freeze will be Tuesday, November 4 at 11:59pm (Mountain View time). If you did not make Firefox 3.1 beta 1, we would love for you to participate in this next beta release. We have a goal of releasing a fully localized beta, so please let us know what we can do to help you get into the second beta. For more information and links to the localization team tools, please see Seth’s weblog post.

Chris Blizzard has written a post that tries to clear up some of the confusion that has emerged around the Geolocation functionality that is included in Firefox 3.1 beta 1. The three points he covers are: First, out of the box, Firefox 3.1 beta 1 doesn’t include any back-end providers of location information; Second, we don’t know what we’re going to include with Firefox 3.1 for location information; Third, the browser is providing location information, not information about where you live. Blizzard’s blog post goes into detail on each of these points and is worth a read if you’re unclear about the Geolocation feature as it currently exists in Firefox 3.1 beta 1.
