Jetpack Project: weekly update for February 26, 2013

Project News

  • Over the last couple of days I’ve published a couple of posts about the near future of the project as we land the SDK’s apis in Firefox: [part 1] & [part 2]. If you have any feedback on these posts, please comment there, below, or ideally post to the Google group.
  • We took a hard look at the work we need to ship in SDK 1.14 and decided that, given there is also a team work week coming up the best thing to do is to delay release by 2 weeks. This means that Add-on SDK 1.14 will be released on Tuesday, March 26th.
  • Mozillian / Hacker Blake Winton created Whimsy ( code here ), a crazy little Jetpack that adds fun, zany stuff to Firefox, in particular the newtab page.

  • SDK: 1.14 has been pushed back a couple weeks to catch all the changes needed, and allow for team meetup travel.
  • Roundtable: discussion around squashing commits in to understandable chunks, Eddy’s blog posts, and what to expect for the work week.
