Add-ons Update – Week of 2013/04/03

I post these updates every 3 weeks to inform add-on developers about the status of the review queues, add-on compatibility, and other happenings in the add-ons world.

The Review Queues

  • Most nominations for full review are taking less than 3 weeks to review.
  • Most updates are being reviewed within 2 weeks.
  • Most preliminary reviews are being reviewed within 2 weeks.

These stats are taken from the last queue report:

  • 68 nominations in the queue awaiting review.
  • 78 updates in the queue awaiting review.
  • 89 preliminary review submissions in the queue awaiting review.

Our new reviewer incentives program has become a great motivator for our review team. If you’re an add-on developer, please consider joining us. Add-on reviewers get invited to Mozilla events and earn cool gear with their work. Visit our wiki page for more information.

Firefox 20 Compatibility

The compatibility blog post for Firefox 20 was already posted, and the the compatibility bump for AMO add-ons was run. Keep in mind that major changes happened for Private Browsing Mode and the Download UI in this release.
