Market Insights from the Product Marketing Strategy Team

Mobile

  • HTC First, the phone pre-loaded with Facebook Home is experiencing delays in being made available to additional markets than the US, such as the UK and France. Reasons quoted is the poor experience of the app, which is rated on the Google Play Store with 2.3 stars. This comes amid record low earnings in Q1 for HTC, mainly due to delays in launching its flagship device, the HTC One.
  • Samsung announced an event in London for the 20th of June to unveil new devices in the Galaxy and the Ativ lines. In the Galaxy series (Android – based) rumours point to a Mini version of the Galaxy S IV. Due to the records sales of the original Galaxy S IV, it is expected that the lower – end version thereof will do well to capture that segment. The Ativ series is based on the Windows Phone OS and has been opened by the Ativ S, which has been met by moderate reviews.
  • The European Commission has made a series of news on antitrust enquiries, complains and investigations. Regarding Google, the regulator has mentioned they will likely ask the company to improve its proposals around the promotion of goods and services on its search service. On Apple, the authority sent a questionnaire to operators across the region on sales and distribution terms for the company’s products.
  • Mary Meeker released her yearly asessment on the development of the Internet.

Marketing, Press & Public Reaction

  • No updates today besides this reminder: PR is on press tour and will be demoing Sync and WebRTC goodness — let’s keep those hamsters running!

markh

A little more on e10s form/autocomplete.

Started looking into background thumbnail service stuff. Learnt lots, solved nothing :)

Put together a relatively complex patch so console and standard handles work as expected in child processes.

Australis

Fixed:

  • bug 874051 – Fixing a11y test failures on UX

  • bug 874601 – Social API test failures (test finnickiness also fixed on m-c!)
  • bug 874448 – OS X dropmarkers
  • bug 875163 – new icons hugeness on OS X hidpi
  • bug 873518 – removing throbber (activity indicator) and individual cut/copy/paste buttons, plus a sneaky off-by-one error in customize mode

Reviewed:

  • bug 823237 – new tab button paths fixing tab close overflow cases

  • bug 857886 – tab image updates for OS X hidpi

WFM:

  • bug 874819 seems to have gone away after a merge; this means we now have green UX trees apart from the jetpack tests. Thanks to mconley and everyone else who helped fix this. If anyone breaks tests and introduces more orange, I will personally come and find you. :-)

(the jetpack tests depend on some SDK work as well as decisions regarding the addon bar, probably followed by more SDK work. I may help out with that if I have cycles within M6 still)

  • bug 872455 – Fixed some Social button weirdness, backported to Aurora

  • bug 865806 – Backed out, relanded with my crashfix to avert Aurora nightly crashiness

Next:

  • bug 870849 – (windows-only gap between titlebar and tabstrip; need to address Dao’s review comments)

  • bug 873501 – make the customization code spacer/spring-proof
  • bug 870014 – address the issues mconley identified

I also need to organize one of my mentored bugs now that Matt has cleared one up so they can work on that one.

mixedpuppy

  • various intermittent test failure work

  • investigation on improvements for webrtc apps/talkilla

SeaMonkey: 2013-05-28

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — Jesper Kristensen @ 11:00 pm

Agenda

  • Who’s taking minutes? -> mcsmurf

  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank
    • No one, tree is closed

Action Items

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

NEW

OPEN

  • Need to reward the nominees of the friends of the fish tank from this year (IanN)

CLOSED

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • No Windows langpacks since 8th April on trunk. Needs investigating.

    • Comment from mcsmurf on this: Not clear what is meant by this, please clarify. xpi/win32/ folders on FTP server look fine. Also file a bug if something needs to be investigated/fixed.
  • The Java on Linux bug has been tracked down to being due to our (SM’s) build config. Basically our RelEng team needs to check whether we can switch to linking libstdc++ dynamically, like FF and TB do. See: bug 754622 Oracle/Sun Java jre1.7.0_04 and later does not work in SeaMonkey.
    • In the mean time, InvisibleSmiley has added the workaround to the 2.17 and 2.18 release notes.
  • Tinderbox is going to be EOLed. We need to move the SeaMonkey tinderboxpushlog off.
    • Mostly done now, just a few loose ends.

    • Callek has gotten up and running a newer version of TBPL (that doesn’t depend on tinderbox) for testing. This will be deployed eventually to replace the current TBPL code we are running.
    • Mcsmurf needs to talk to Callek to see if tbpl can get more memory (some PHP(?) setting?) as sometimes fetching a log fails due to not enough memory (See bug 845844).
  • Intermittent issue with Mac OSX64 Debug Leak log comprehension. Issue tracked in bug 774844. Also see possibly related Thunderbird bug 806492.
  • Two remaining machines on Parallels are the buildmaster (cb-seamonkey-linuxmaster-01) and Linux64 (cb-seamonkey-linux64-01). These need to be migrated to ESX. Specifically:
    • sea-vm-linux64-1 will replace cb-seamonkey-linux64-01 (and running jobs now).

    • sea-master1 will replace the current buildmaster.
    • Both our buildmaster and cb-seamonkey-linux64-01 are down due to hardware failure. This means no builds and no releases until they are replaced. After two days of help from DCOps, Callek has decided to cease all recovery operations and concentrate on setting up the puppetmaster to get the ball rolling on getting our new buildmaster out. Therefore, our 2.18b5 and our 2.18 release are cancelled. instead will go directly to the 2.19 series of betas.
  • bug 740633 set up seamonkey HPs in scl3. Hardware installed and iLO configured. CentOS 6.3 installed.
    • Awaiting puppetmaster fully prepared to instantiate as Linux Mock-Based slaves
  • sea-puppet (one of said hp machines) is ready to be configured as a puppet master (bug 827079), needs audit of the manifests and settings creation.
  • comm-* will be building out of mozilla-* eventually. Jcrammer is working on this.
  • bug 865976 Cannot build SeaMonkey on Linux since Bug 842927 (Implement DOM3 KeyboardEvent.key only for non-printable key, first) [Fixed].

Release Train

  • Due to hardware failure, SeaMonkey 2.18b5 and SeaMonkey 2.18 were cancelled.

  • Instead will go directly to 2.19 series of betas and by the 24th June, the 2.19 final. This means that users of 2.17.1 will be going directly to 2.19.
  • If Firefox decides to do a dot release, we might go for a 2.18 later.

Extensions Compatibility Tracking

  • See Basics page. Please only list current changes here.

  • Addon Compatibility Listings
  • There are now Lightning versions for both SM 2.17.x (Lightning 2.2b1) and SM 2.18 betas (Lightning 2.3b1) available on AMO.
    • Might need to point out in release notes that users needs to install the Lightning beta versions for the SeaMonkey releases (as Lightning follows Thunderbird 17.0.x release schedule)

    • Problem: Linking to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/lightning/versions/ will provide users with versions that do not put them on the addons beta update channel; also linking to a specific version would need updating with every release
    • Linking to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/lightning/#beta-channel does not jump to the correct page position as addons.mozilla.org loads the user comments for the addon after pageload. So it first moves to the correct position (page anchor) and after that it loads the user comments
  • Shipped extensions (DOMI, CZ, Venkman) compatibility:
    • Extensions are now compatible by default thus mitigating the issue. Although some people still disable c-b-d and run into issues.
  • Our build team needs to automate DOMI branch selection rather than having to tweak the client.py every 6 weeks. bug 763506
    • Meanwhile Callek made some changes to the tags that SM pulls (CZ, Venkman, DOMI) for comm-central. See comm-central changeset 347b255c4810.
  • Nightly Tester Tools is being actively developed by xabolcs (coder) and whimboo (reviewer) to make it more compatible with comm-central in general and SeaMonkey in particular. See Issues · mozilla/nightlytt · GitHub.

Feature List, Planning

Private Browsing is now mostly complete and uplifted to 2.18. Most things should work but some edge cases have probably been missed. Hopefully any remaining bugs will be found before its release.

  • Testing would be appreciated! Please file bugs as blocking the meta bug 460895.

  • We need to figure out if we want a new about:privatebrowsing page which someone will have to write (bug 842439). Help content is being worked on bug 872000.

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 33 new, 6 fixed, 12 triaged.

  • Low triaging effort.

Open reviews/flags:
23 review
7 super-review
2 ui-review
6 feedback

  • bug 847546 Support Retina Display (HiDPI) on SeaMokney on MacOS X.

    • Ratty thinks we will need 2x PNGs as well as other changes. See Core Tracking bug 785330 for supporting HiDPI mode (Retina Display) on Mac OS X.
  • See Feature List page for major wanted/needed features.
    • Ratty suggests featuring one or more bugs from that page at each meeting.
  • Featured helpwanted bugs:

Good First Bugs

  • Note: The GFB list is open to all including our regular contributors.

  • Ratty is working on an updated GFB list, suggestions welcome.
  • New GFBs recently added:
  • Currently there are 24 GFBs open, 2 are being actively worked on. bug 735333 needs some help getting this running on the try-server. Mcsmurf is assisting.
  • List of Open mentored bugs.
    • Ratty notes that there are 23 bugs that are GFBs but without the mentor keyword. These need to be audited to see if they are really suitable as GFBs.
  • Mentors of stalled bugs should try to communicate with the assignees and if they can’t work on them any more to unassign/free up those bugs.

previous week | index | next week »

Thunderbird Meeting Details :

Remember to use headphones and mute yourself when not talking

Feel free to ask questions in the meeting either by speaking up or by asking them in #maildev on IRC.

Other ways to get in touch with us can be found on our communications page

Meeting Changes

Attendees

mconley, irving, rolandtanglao, JosiahOne (audio only), wsmwk, clokep (incoming audio only), aceman (audio only), mkmelin

Action items from last meetings

Action items from last meetings


  • (???) Standard8: Document flags to tb-planning
  • (???) Standard8: Follow up with metric numbers being public

    • This should be happening soon, work has been done, waiting for final approvals


  • (CLOSED) http.jsm update?

    • clokep needs to file a bug to get it included (see below)

    • atuljangra will be moving the FileLink backend to chat/ as part of GSoC, this will de-duplicate http.jsm

  • (2013-04-02) Investigating possibilities for dropping second ESR release channel whilst maintaining mainstream the same as the ESR releases.
  • (2013-04-02) Standard8: arrange for swag to be sent to WADA and Aryx who are our awesome FotT.
  • Community as a whole: Decide “who is supposed to plan our dances?”
  • rkent: Send a proposal to tb-planning

Round Table

  • mconley

    • I’ve got two GSoC students assigned to me

      • Jon Demelo will be working on a connector for Ensemble – likely a CardDAV one.

      • Fallen will be working on making devtools work with Thunderbird.
      • I have a contributor (Sakshi Bansal) investigating some object comparison algorithms for me, because I feel like the one we’ve high-jacked and extended from Underscore.js isn’t ideal. I have him looking at what Sync is doing.
    • Cleared a bunch of reviews last weekend, will clear more this week
    • Our tree is in bad shape, Mozmill-test wise. :/ (seems to be coming from m-c)
  • clokep

    • http.jsm:

      • This got more (less?) complicated, Instantbird has a GSoC student (Atul Jangra) to integrate FileLink.

      • Potentially could move FileLink under chat/ as it would then be shared code.
        • Decided in meeting that we WILL be doing this, it is simpler than moving http.jsm to toolkit.
    • Will be mentoring a student (Quentin Headen) to add Yahoo! Messenger support to the chat/ backend.
  • Roland

    • I am trying to test the McAfee update on Windows 8 using Thunderbird 17.0.6 (fixed in McAfee 12.1.338released today although they are throttled like firefox so uninstall and re-install to force an update if you don’t want to wait!)

to force an upgrade to 12.1.33

    • Will make volunteers SUMOMO admins (vincent, wayne, matt) so they can have the fun of SuMoMo SPAM
  • mkmelin

    • have been cleaning up the [good first bug] bug list, and it seems to have gotten some traction. we should add that to more easy bugs. (Yes, true, I also am mentoring some GFBs – aceman)
  • wsmwk (late addition)

    • bugday for Thunderbird+calendar June 12

Question Time

  • aceman

    • Q: what is the current procedure in reviewing bugs in /mailnews (account manager) like bug 389139? In the past I got IanN and somebody from TB to review it (like mconley). But what to do today if nobody has the time or rights to do it? Is Neil’s review enough for check-in? A: Yes

    • Q: What is opinion on removing debug code added by contributors that already left? I mean e.g. code in #ifdef DEBUG_bienvenu . My idea would be to keep the debugging code (where it seems useful) just change the name of the define. Call it after the functionality it is testing, e.g. DEBUG_ImapProtocol. A: Better leave it as is…

Action Items

  • Ping Standard8 about his action items

Key Issues

Future of the platform meeting

As posted to dev-platform (What should be next for the platform meeting?):

The general feeling about the platform meeting seems to be:

  1. it has some useful content/purpose that we want to maintain

  2. it has no particular focus and is not optimized for anyone

For 1, the uses that I’ve heard include (please feel free to add to this list):
– opportunity to find owners for stability, orange factor, other bugs
– opportunity to present ideas (like moving to Git) to a chunk of engineering
– like to know what other teams are up to

Other useful content that has been suggested includes:
– content for hackers
– engineering paper cuts

For 2, it seems clear that this meeting is broken in its current form. I have heard the following suggestions to maintain the benefits in 1 without the platform meeting:
a. set up a regular newsletter or other form to push team status to engineering (easier said than done)
b. set up an engineering managers meeting to handle cross team issues that require escalation like finding bug owners (requires buy in from a good number of managers)

Has the platform meeting run it’s course? Is it time to retire this staple of the weekly engineering meeting schedule?

Threads

Products/Projects

Firefox Mobile

  • Async prompt service bug 870062

  • Refactor to eliminate GeckoApp.mAppContext for bug 867517, Gecko-based WebView

OrangeFactor

  • Past week’s OrangeFactor: 5.74 (Previous Week: 6.88).

  • Thanks to philor for disabling failure-prone Android tests that were causing frequent suite timeouts.
  • Windows iX Slave Top Oranges
    • Win7 media test failures discussed last week still unassigned – bug 872748, bug 872760, bug 872788, bug 872996.

    • #1 top orange (bug 858377 – Intermittent test_393498.js | false == true) currently unowned. WinXP iX slaves primarily.
    • #4 top orange (bug 774689 – Intermittent 632781-verybig.html | image comparison (==), max difference: 255, number of differing pixels: 14400 ) currently unowned. WinXP iX slaves primarily.
  • #7 top orange (bug 875194 – Intermittent Android test_video_crossorigin.html | uncaught exception – NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE: Component is not available at http://mochi.test:8888/tests/content/canvas/test/crossorigin/test_video_crossorigin.html:33) currently unowned.
  • 21 intermittent failures fixed in the last week – List – Thanks!.

MemShrink

  • Brian Hackett delayed the analysis of JS scripts until they are Baseline-compiled, which reduces how much memory is used by scripts that are only run a few times. Among other things, this reduces startup memory by 14mb (10%), entirely eliminating a spike in memory usage we saw in the first 30 seconds after startup on AreWeSlimYet.

  • Joe Drew and Andreas Gal landed some nice fixes to reduce image memory usage on B2G, which continues to be a concern.
  • Read more about these and many other memory improvements in the MemShrink report for weeks 97-98.

Roundtable

  • (armenzg) new win7, winXP test machines live in production

  • tbpl database update Thursday – no downtime, but just fyi.
  • hg upgrade coming 01june – brief downtime, more details in bug 741353

Schedule & Progress onUpcoming Releases

Firefox Desktop

Current Releases

  • FF21.0 looks like it’ll stick, congrats!

Beta (22)

Aurora (23)

Nightly (24)

  • FF24 is also planned as ESR24

    • New scheme: planned dot releases of the ESR will be 24.1, 24.2, etc. For sanity the major+minor version will add up to the corresponding non-ESR release. 24.2 ==> 24 + 2 ==> released with Firefox 26

    • “Chemspill” releases will use a third digit, e.g. 24.2.1

Firefox Metro

Read Only

  • Metro Team completed Work Week in Vancouver – View Results

  • Iteration #7 ends this Thursday on May 23.
    • Team has completed 68 points (48%) of total story work.

    • Majority of the remaining work will carry over to Iteration #8.
  • Iteration #7 Review and Planning meeting happens on Friday May 24.
  • Iteration #8 runs from Tuesday May 28 – Monday June 10.
  • On PTO from Friday May 31 – June 12: Asa will be assuming my Metro responsibilities while I’m gone.

Feedback Summary

Desktop

21 seems quite stable at this point. No urgent issues to report. One small issue to report around UI changes.

Menu Item Change - We are seeing user confusion around moving the “clear recent history” button. Feedback is low at this point, but could increase as more users update. We suggest an educational push similar to the Private Browsing changes.

Scrolling is laggy Comments around scrolling being laggy/mouse only?. May be related to perf problems we saw during the beta.

Untrusted connections (from last week) - Spike died down May 15th/16th.

Updates not completing (from last week) - Only seems to have been May 13th, otherwise, still seeing comments but at a more normal level.

Mobile

21 is a very smooth and stable release. YAY!

We now have automated feedback tools, please ping Tyler if you want access.

Fuller update to come (will update the wiki). For now, some highlights:

Market Insights from the Product Marketing Strategy Team

Mobile

The first Jolla phone was revealed and made available for pre – oder for 399 Euros. A device with a dual – core processor and a 4.5 – inch display, it will be able to run Android apps with the help of Open Mobile’s Application Compatibility Layer. It will not support the Google Play Store, though, so applications will need to be loaded through other venues. Besides Android, it will support Qt and HTML5 apps. The value proposition is branded “The Other Half” and speaks to the device’s ability to adapt its design, settings and apps as the user applies different hardware elements (like a cover) to it, as it acts through her day. Jolla will be providing a few of them, but it invites collaborators to create those accessories. The device will ship before the end of 2013.

Opera launched the stable version of its Webkit – based Android browser. Based on Chromium 26, the app will likely switch to Blink once Google has integrated it into Chromium. It holds most of Opera’s signature features, such as the proxy – mode, Speed Dial home page, and Discover panel, which lets the user browse through the day’s top news. Available for Android 2.3 or newer, this version does not support tablets yet and has a 4.4 star rating.

Samsung has acquired a 10% stake in Pantech, the 3rd largest Korean smartphone manufacturer. While significant in the country, the device maker has had little success outside of it, where is sells in the low – end in some of the emerging markets. Another stakeholder in Pantech is Qualcomm with 11.96%.

The 2012 Kaspersky Security Bulletin Board claims that 99% of the newly discovered mobile malicious apps target Android. The rate of discovery is going up, from 8 new unique programs in January 2011 to 8 times that amount at the end of 2012. There are 3 main types of malware: SMS Trojans, that send messages to premium-rate numbers, backdoors which provide unauthorized access and allow the installation of other malicious programs, and spyware as the 3rd category. These 3 types account for 51% of the newly discovered malware.

Telefonica has announced a deal with Samsung to integrate its carrier billing backend into Samsung’s mobile services. Using the BlueVia payment APIs, Telefonica’s 316 million users who use Samsung’s app portals and services would be able to charge content directly to their phone bill. The rolle-out will be gradual, starting with Germany.

ZTE has announced that is will begin selling phones in India with 5 devices priced between $105 and $270. The smartphones will be available in major cities starting with October and could be followed later by tablets. Important because ZTE is one of the top 5 worldwide phone manufacturers and India a country with a great deal of potential in the long – term and staggering growth in smartphones sales of 75% Year – over – Year.
