Our next test day will be on Thursday, January 24th. It will be a general test day in preparation for the 0.8 release of Lightning and Sunbird. The last two weeks have brought us many bugfixes (see the status report from today and the 14th and we need your help now to spot any possible problems that resulted from them.
Areas we want to test are the Task mode & Today pane and all kind of menus & keys in Lightning. For testing our new features, the experimental offline cache and initial timezone guessing, please have a look at the Test Day Wiki Page for instructions.
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 many fixed bugs that need to be verified. You simply add a comment to the bug report stating what product, version and operating system you used while verifying the bug fixed.
Join us in #calendar-qa on Thursday. All the information on the test day
is on our usual Test Day Wiki Page.
