Weekly developer tools update, Jan 19



Here are the highlights from this week’s meeting:

  • If you’re running Firefox Nightly, you should get Firebug 1.10a1
  • the GCLI command line  is being turned back off in the Web Console, but it will come back in the Developer Toolbar feature that is coming later
  • Web Console is undergoing restyling
  • Sonny has picked up the e10s patch for the Web Console, which we’re hoping will ultimately help the Web Console become remotable
  • Style Editor transitions have landed
  • Script Debugger is partway through superreview, and Panos has posted a document about the architecture

Those are the highlights for this week. Check out the full outline on the wiki, and join us next Thursday and say hi!

      I have spent a lot of time on hunting down the zombies, but there are no proper tools that would help me with it. and so, I haven’t done much progress.

      I am betting on this tool ATM: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=699801

      …waiting till the suggested tool is available.

    I hope that bug’s whiteboard entry of memshrink p1 indicates Mozilla is assigning more resources than just a few developers. That said, the best of luck to messrs mccr8 and Lebar.
