We are gearing up for a new year’s worth of Test Days! Our first bi-weekly test day will be on Thursday, January 10th. It will be a general Test Day in preparation for the 0.8 release of Lightning and Sunbird. We have had a lot of bugfixes checked in over the last month and need your help now to spot any possible problems that resulted from them.
Lightning users should pay attention to the new drag&drop-conversion feature, i.e. you can transition items between tasks, events, and emails from one to the other by dragging & dropping them to the matching mode toolbar button. Andreas Treumann created a brand-new set of Litmus testcases for this feature (Lightning FFTs, Subgroup ‘Drag and Drop’ in Litmus).
We suggest that you try a mix of Litmus and ad-hoc testing this time. Ad-hoc testing is testing where you attempt to use the product like a “normal user” to find any issues that crop up along the way. You also try to make the program break by doing unexpected things, just do anything you can imagine – mix up events, emails, tasks, calendar types etc. When you find something, take a look at the Error Console (especially before submitting a bug report), since there is usually very valuable information there that points to the cause of the bug.
As usual there are also some fixed bugs that need to be verified.
Join us in #calendar-qa on Thursday. All the information on the test day is in our usual Test Day Wiki Page.
