Jetpack Project: weekly update for March 19, 2013

Project News

  • We are releasing SDK 1.14rc2 tomorrow, which will also likely be tagged tomorrow as the 1.14 release candidate. In addition to this we are coordinating with the Firefox team and release-drivers to ensure that the code in 1.14 is exactly the same as what we will release in Firefox 21. If you’re maintaining an SDK-based add-on, please help and test your code with ths new RC!
  • Last week’s work week in Sunnyvale yielded all sorts of amazing work, look for a post over on tomorrow for the full details.
  • Eddy blogged yesterday about his work on getting Firefox’s Browser Debugger working with SDK-based add-ons.

Meeting Brief

  • PWPB support is complete, but 1.14 & Firefox 21 will ship with only partial support for Add-ons that opt in to work in Private Browsing mode.
  • Cross-domain capabilities and Panel Positioning changes are close to landing, SDK 1.14 re-packs are on track, and we need to re-evaluate high-priority items as we move into Q2.
  • SDK: 1.14 RC1 was released today – test! test!
  • Roundtable: discussion on prioritizing deep integrators over work targeted at casual add-on developers.
