Weekly DevTools Meeting Notes May 5


Lots of good things going on in DevTools, and the full meeting notes will give you some of the details. Some highlights:

  • The work on JSD2 and the remote connection to it is heating up. After careful study, we’ve decided to go with Jim Blandy’s remote debugging protocol as the communication protocol.
  • Mac users can expect to see a “Web Developer” submenu on the Tools menu in Firefox 6
  • Good progress on the other tools. More code will be coming up for review soon.
  • There was a very long dev.platform thread about code editing in the browser, and we will be pinning down a plan soon

On this page, I will tend to highlight things that land in the tree or transition to shipping and large direction decisions. The full meeting notes have more of the details of things that have not yet landed.
