Development Updates


Fx 2.0.0.15 / Fx 2.0.0.16 / TB 2.0.0.15 / TB 2.0.0.16

Firefox 2.0.0.15 is on track to ship tomorrow at ~3pm PDT. After which, we’re going to do a short-cycle follow up (Firefox 2.0.0.16). A proposed schedule is available.

As a result of our short-cycle Firefox 2.0.0.15, we’ve scrapped Thunderbird 2.0.0.15. You’ll see a new reincarnation going by the name of Thunderbird 2.0.0.16.


TB 3


Gecko 1.9.1

  • Look here for interesting queries related to Gecko 1.9.1.

  • Tracking 17 1.9.1 blockers.
  • 78 wanted bugs
    • 21 P1s. These are bugs we feel would really, really make a good release if we had a solid handful completed.

    • 20 P2s. These are medium complexity bugs/changes that are nice to have.
    • 19 P3s. The lowest priority bugs for this release. These are the ones that we will definitely take, but the others take priority.
