The test day on Tuesday was absolutely incredible. The response was awesome.
- 30 people took part
- 90% coverage in litmus on all tier 1 platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac Intel, Mac PPC)
- 9 non-duplicate bugs found.
332 tests were run
First place and the prize of the test day went to ssitter with over a hundred tests run in addition to serving as a moderator on the channel. Ray swept in with a close second at 59 tests and several good bugs. Andreas was on his heels with 54 tests. While these guys may have been in the lead, everyone’s contribution helped us achieve 90% test coverage, and that’s what I’m so excited about.
Several good bugs were found, but none of them were serious enough to block the release. We are still testing, of course, but so far everything looks good. The team is currently in the process of cutting the release builds which will include a localized Lightning and a universal Mac build of Lightning. No code changes are going in, so once we have the release build built, we will do a localization and functional test day. If we don’t find any blockers, we’ll release that as 0.5.
We are getting down to the wire, so keep an eye on this blog, the newsgroup, and Mozilla Zine for the announcement about the next test day. I’m going to try to have it on Tuesday, but it entirely depends on when the release is built.
I’m not sure what a virtual round of applause sounds like, but we should give ourselves a hand. This was a magnificent feat! Thanks to everyone that joined the test day effort and helped out. Thanks also to our moderators who in put in long hours to stay awake and available through the day. We couldn’t do it without you!
