Jetpack Project: weekly update for February 7th, 2012

Project News

  • We released a hotfix release, 1.4.3. It fixes an important regression in 1.4, 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 and should be taken by anybody currently using one of those releases. More details here.
  • FOSDEM happened, there were Jetpack presentations and discussions. Henrik Skupin blogged about it, and contributed a patch.
  • Andrew Sutherland has written an add-on using the SDK to break down Firefox memory usage by tab: or, to “help you lay blame more easily”

Meeting Brief

  • The Add-on Builder is preparing for its 1.0 release. We have one blocker, bug 724766, otherwise things are looking good.
  • We had a brief 1.4.3 postmortem: concluded that we need to improve test coverage for beta releases.
  • There’s a lot of demand to make the SDK support Thunderbird. The SDK team does not have the resources to support Thunderbird officially, but should not prevent Thunderbird from working by, for example, throwing an exception when Thunderbird is detected.
  • Here’s a blog post from Dietrich on using the SDK to deliver features into Firefox.
