(Repo, test, and other information for engineers from the release engineering team.)

Upcoming Outages/Upgrades

(System outages/upgrades and tree closures that impact engineering.)

Quality Programs

(An opportunity to hear about status with the various quality programs that do not have a formal team structure.)

MemShrink (njn)

  • Seth Fowler has resolved a series of image-related memory usage regressions that have been present on AWSY since early November.

Stability (kairo)

<Read Only>

  • Overall numbers are still bad for everything other than desktop release (see beta/devedition bugs above, nightly crash rates are even worse).

Team Stand-ups

(In <2 mins, what did your team accomplish last week, on what is your team working on this week, and on what, if anything, is your team blocked? No questions during the stand-ups. All questions should be asked during the roundtable.)

Electrolysis (e10s) (blassey)

GFX (milan)

  • WebGL regression sadness on Windows related to ANGLE. Both in 32/33 (hardware/driver specific) and 35 (investigating.) Bugs 1122465 and 1123365.
  • Need to put tooling in place to see if it’s shared memory that is soft-leaking, accounting for OOM on Windows.
  • Unified crashes due to driver resets, seeing crashreports at #4 which was before a long tail. Should help with tracking down the solutions.

JS (naveed)

<Read Only>

  • Compiler (JIT)
    • bug 1124002: Fix a bad performance issue with closure-compiled code (by removing some code).
    • bug 1125505: Posted patches to fix mutable __proto__ to not reshape the proto chain in common cases. This should make Shumway (raytrace.swf) a lot faster.

Media (mreavy)

<Read Only>

1. What has your team done since last week that might impact others?

  • bug 749703 from an external contributor broke WebRTC calls by exposing an existing bug/timing-hole (merged to m-c Saturday); a fix is about to land (bug 1126036)
    • Some end-to-end functional tests for Hello that are about to land would catch this; most in-single-browser tests as we have in mochitest suites can’t/don’t hit the timing issue introduced.

2. What will your team do this week that might impact others?

Performance (vladan)

No update this week

    • Pushing on jelly doughnut approach
      • Got screwed because accounts.firefox.com sets X-Frame-Options=DENY (and I was trying to iframe). WKWebView is not a full-fledged browser; we can’t ignore aspects of the web that we don’t like when using it. Work-around is easy.

SeaMonkey: 2015-01-20

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — Jesper Kristensen @ 12:00 am

Agenda

  • Who’s taking minutes? -> TBD
  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank:
    • TBD

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn’t been recorded in a bug)
We should assign people to the open items.

NEW

  • Callek needs to talk to sheeri someone about public SeaMonkey dataviz pages not working.

OPEN

  • bug 1081726 Donation link on website needs to be change to point to SeaMonkey Paypal donation page. Blocked on mcsmurf getting a new CVS website account, looks like his old one has expired.
  • (bug 956561); move blog to https://blog.seamonkey-project.org. [DONE]
    • Now live with new design and branding.
    • Some progress with the SSL certificate issue. With the certificate, things would work easier as mcsmurf wants to sync the blog with Facebook entries.
  • Callek has been in discussions with MoCo on whether we (SM) can make use of Firefox Accounts.
    • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager
      • mcsmurf says he has a short term workaround for this.
  • bug 1057920 SeaMonkey’s CVS dependency really should be removed. (currently used only for Releng Automation, and SeaMonkey Website).
    • This has been spun off into a separate bugs for the website and the rest. For the website it looks like we’ll be going mercurial rather than svn (as that is the way the mozilla people would prefer it too).

CLOSED

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • Windows nightly trunk builds arewere running again briefly (thanks to Callek and Ewong) but are down again due to bug 1108970. Migrating our Windows builders to VS2013 would likely solve this and other bustages.
  • VS2010 support was removed from mozilla-central on 15th December (bug 1092468). Our Windows slaves are in the process of being upgraded to Win2008 and VS2013 (bug 1114876). There are also some upcoming changes to L10n build system in Q1 2015 (bug 1107635).
  • Buildmaster is up and running, and produces en-US builds, see 9/16 meeting’s Friends of the Fish Tank. Builds and langpacks in 18 languages including en-US are available unofficially thanks to A.Kalla.
  • bug 1083689 Langpacks aren’t updated when auto-updating SeaMonkey. The langpacks need strict versioning e.g. min 2.30 max 2.30.* which makes sense since you don’t want 2.29 strings with 2.30. This is possibly a build config problem so we should check with Callek, ewong, or KaiRo.
    • The de and en-GB langpacks for 2.30 have:
      <em:minVersion>2.30</em:minVersion><em:maxVersion>2.*</em:maxVersion>
      2.22 had:
      <em:minVersion>2.22</em:minVersion><em:maxVersion>2.22.*</em:maxVersion>
    • [IanN and RSX11M] There was a change in one of the scripts that generates the language pack files (the underlying issue was truncated version numbers introduced by Firefox) so it needs to be adjusted to take SeaMonkey into account.
  • Due to the master having some mysql issues, Callek has put a halt on the mysql updates, which affects the tbpl. So nothing is showing in TBPL atm.
  • [20th January 2015]
  • See RelEng page for the RelEng status history.
  • In Bug 902876 Comment 12 Mcsmurf is waiting for feedback from the build team on how to proceed.

Release Train

  • SeaMonkey 2.32b1 was released on December 16, 2014.
  • SeaMonkey 2.32b2 was released on December 21, 2014.
  • SeaMonkey 2.32b3 was released on January 4, 2015.
  • SeaMonkey 2.32 final was released on January 13, 2015.
  • Useful Firefox Release Schedule link: Releases Scheduling

Extensions and Plugins Compatibility Tracking

  • See Basics page. Please only list current changes here.
  • Addon Compatibility Listings
  • AMO and addon-signing. All addons will have to be signed, uploaded to AMO then reviewed by AMO editors including extensions not hosted on AMO. Otherwise they’ll be disabled. Discussion in mozilla.addons.user-experience
  • Firefox & Thunderbird Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/
    This tool goes a little further beyond simply modifying install.rdf – it also identifies a few more other things in the code that are Firefox or Thunderbird specific and attempts to change them. Of course, not all extensions can be ported so easily to SeaMonkey since there’s only so much an automated tool like that can do.
    •  !This item should be moved to somewhere more permanent and discoverable!
  • New versions of Flashblock for Firefox and SeaMonkey have been released to address a regression caused by bug 1050049.
  • Current Lightning 3.6b1 builds offered on AMO don’t work with the 2.31 release (bug 1081534, bug 1106034, bug 1107865)
    • Workaround is to install the version from 3.6b1-candidates/build3/
    • Lightning 3.7b1 builds for SM 2.32 release are expected may be released this week [1].
  • The Thunderbird team is planning to ship Lightning with Thunderbird. IanN thinks we will want to ship lightning too. We should coordinate with Thunderbird.
  • Proposed replacement for Venkman for shipping with SeaMonkey: Tiny JavaScript Debugger. TinyJSD is a JavaScript debugger for privileged code running Mozilla products like Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey. It serves to debug the application as well as extensions written in JavaScript.
    • Consensus is that we should ship TJSD as a replacement for Venkman. The next step is to contact the author.
  • bug 957149 DOM Inspector 2.0.15 released on 12th December. Ratty took over from IanN and finished preparing DOMi 2.0.15 for release [2].
  • Our build team needs to automate DOMI branch selection rather than having to tweak the client.py every 6 weeks. bug 763506

2.x (Last, Current, Next)

  • SeaMonkey Statistics can be viewed at https://dataviz.mozilla.org Across all channels we have an approximate ADU of 120k.
    • Callek needs to talk to sheeri about public SeaMonkey dataviz pages not working.
  • See Basics page for the usual reminders.

2.Next

  • Stalled. Needs a kick.
    • bug 815954 Click-to-Play: Port bug 812562 (click-to-play blocklisted plugins: reshow urlbar notification as with normal click-to-play).
    • bug 476108 GetShortPathNameW fails under some NTFS junctions [patchlove].
  • Current breakages:
    • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager needs an owner
    • bug 995737 adapt seamonkey for the address book remote content policy change; use permission manager instead of address book property.
  • Mozilla-central bugs that affect us:
    • Our front end Sync UI needs to be updated as the old backend is going away in Gecko/Firefox 31. See: New Firefox Sync has landed in Firefox Nightly. Tracked in:
      • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager.
      • bug 1003434 Add support for about:sync-progress.
    • A lot of these bugs are due to mozilla-central switching from synchronous APIs to Asynchronous APIs.
    • bug 566746 (asyncFormHistory) Form history should use asynchronous storage API. Tracked in:
      • bug 912031 Use Asynchronous FormHistory.jsm in place of nsIFormHistory2 in Suite.
    • bug 769764 move proxy resolution to separate thread and remove sync api. Tracked in:
      • MailNews bug 791645 Rewrite calls to synchronous nsIProtocolProxyService::DeprecatedBlockingResolve with Async code before DeprecatedBlockingResolve disappears as well.
    • The C++ downloads manager backend nsIDownloadManager is being decommissioned. Firefox has migrated to jsdownloads. Thunderbird is in the process of migrating. We need to decide how we are going to handle this sooner rather than later.
    • bug 825588 Asynchronous JavaScript API for downloads and bug 851471 Decommission nsIDownloadManager. Tracked in:
      • bug 888915 Move SeaMonkey to the new JavaScript API for downloads when nsIDownloadManager is decommissioned.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 29 new, 9 fixed, 6 triaged.

  • Low triaging effort, average number of new bugs filed.
  • IanN thinks it would be useful to remind people on the newsgroups / forums that they can contribute by triaging. Tonymec will post a reminder to newsgroups / forums. See bug 1092632 (Sm_tri_HowTo) Document how to triage SeaMonkey bugs.

Open reviews/flags:
32 review
5 super-review
4 ui-review
8 feedback

  • See Feature List page for major wanted/needed features.
  • TODO: We will need to update our Sync UI code due to the new Sync API. Also we need to check if we are allowed to create FX accounts from our UI Since the new Sync accounts are FX accounts.[IanN] I’m sure I saw a question about FX accounts and branding. Callek was going to ask about being able to use Firefox accounts.

Mobile: 2015-01-14

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — Jesper Kristensen @ 12:00 am

Schedule

  • Firefox 35 has shipped!
  • Next merge: 2015-02-23

Topics for This Week

Firefox 35
Shipped a jam-packed release: Search activity & widget, Share overlay, Sync Tabs homepanel, Better error pages (Wifi and Search), Stumbler (perms bump), System DM integration (perms bump), Better network switching and lots of other stuff!
Passwords
The group driving the Password project has been meeting weekly, and has also started triaging bugs. Q1 goals include: Telemetry/Metrics; Changes to save/fill heuristics; and UX changes for saving, filling (including fallback) and password manager.
Task Continuity
The group working on Reader/Reading List have started meeting weekly and planning Q1 goals. Reader view for Android, iOS and Desktop seems to be moving ahead. UX is working on designs for Reading List on Desktop. The Reading Service is also moving ahead and work should be starting soon on client-side integration. The “Send Tabs to Devices” project has not been explicitly addressed yet, but should be soon. Work has been accumulating on that project, but it needs a bit of management/process.
