Notices/Schedule (sylvestre/lmandel)

Next Merge: May 11, 2015 Next Release: May 12, 2015
Trains
Central: 40 Aurora: 39 Beta: 38 Release: 37

Only two weeks until the next Firefox release date! (2015-05-11)

Layout (David Baron)

Off-main-thread animations now enabled on all platforms for Nightly and Aurora (bug 980770). This means many animations of the transform and opacity properties will now run on the compositor thread, with fewer updates on the main thread.

Media

We shipped some MSE fixes in the Firefox 37.0.2 chemspill, so YouTube will re-enable HTML5 video for Firefox 37.0.2 on Windows next week.

Performance (Vladan Djeric)

Aaron Klotz and Ben Turner paid a visit to Adobe’s Flash team at their SF offices. They were able to provide fixes for several Flash player issues! An example of their work is in bug 1133351. This particular patch also landed in our codebase.

Many Telemetry histograms automatically expired in Nightly 40. Check Histograms.json and bug 1156565 to see if your histogram needs to be updated.

Telemetry unification work is continuing, Phase 3 is tracked in bug 1120356. Enabling unified Telemetry (i.e. FHR + Telemetry) might get pushed back to Firefox 40.

Among the latest Telemetry changes, Telemetry will submit data more aggressively to make analyses more reliable (akin to FHR) and to reduce reporting latency. Additionally, unified Telemetry now archives Telemetry data on the client for 6 months — this archive will be used to power the Firefox Self-Support feature.

Yoric added a “Task Manager” feature to Nightly 40 (bug 674779) to identify tabs and add-ons that are consuming the main thread’s time and slowing down Firefox. Specifically, it reports the time spent by the main thread inside different JS compartments. You can see a very rough UI for this feature by opening about:performance in Nightly. For overhead reasons, the feature currently does not measure time spent in compartments belonging to Firefox’s own chrome JS code.

The Performance team, alongside Platform teams, will be studying page scrolling & page navigation performance on desktop & Android in Q2: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Content_Performance_Program

The Places database work done by the “Forget” toolbar button, the “Forget Site” history-menu feature, and the “Clear recent history” feature has been moved off the main thread (bug 1076775). Less jank!

If you notice any plugin issues (crashes, videos not loading, etc), please file a bug and mark it as blocking the async plugin initialization feature (bug 1116806).

Attendees

ATTENDEES – put your nick 1. below 2. in comments unless explicit under round table 3. top right of etherpad next to your color

mkmelin, rolandt, pegasus, makemyday jorgk, rkent, gneandr, aceman, merike, Paenglab, wsmwk

Action items from last meetings

  • (rkent, Fallen) AMO addon compat: TheOne said that this late it is probably not worth doing at all. WIth so many other things for me to do, that sounds like a plan.

Friends of the tree

  • glandium, for fixing the various packager bugs that will help package Lightning (nominated by Fallen, who won’t be at the meeting)

Critical Issues

Critical bugs. Leave these here until they’re confirmed fixed. If confirmed, then remove.

  • (rkent) I am enormously frustrated by the inability to get two critical features landed in tb 38: OAuth and Lightning integration. Can we please give this very high priority?
    • OAuth integration: partial landing for beta 2, really REALLY critical that we get this finished.
  • In general, the tracking-tb38 flag shows what are critical issues. In the next week or so, that list will be culled to only include true blockers for the Thunderbird 38 release. There will still be many.
  • I don’t think we have a reasonable chance of shipping a quality release on May 12. More realistic is June 2.
  • We need to decide on how to do release branching. I am uncertain whether Lightning integration requires this or not.
  • Auto-complete improvements – some could go into esr31 (bug 1042561 included in TB38)
  • Lightning integration (below) really REALLY critical that we get this finished.
  • maildir UI: nothing more to do for UI, still want to land a patch for letting IMAP set this.
  • gloda IM search regressions: mostly fixed, some db cleanup necessary for users of TB33+ that nhnt11 will hopefully have ready to land soon.
    • aleth landed a fix to stop duplicated entries from appearing, nhnt11 will take care of the cleaning up the databases of Aurora/Beta/Daily users this weekend and keep us updated
  • bug 1140884, might need late-l10n

removing from critical list/fixed:

  • ldap crash bug 1063829: a patch in beta 37, beta results are unclear – not seen in 38
  • bug 1064230 crashes during LDAP search made worse by Search All Addressbooks bug 170270, needs tracking 38+ and review?rkent/jcranmer – not seen in 38
  • everyone should probably skim http://mzl.la/1DaLo0t version 31-38 regressions for items they can help fix or direct to the right people

Releases

  • Past
    • 31.6.0 shipped
    • 38.0b1 shipped 2015-04-03
    • 38.0b2 shipped 2015-04-20
  • Upcoming
    • 38.0b3 (when?)

Lightning to Thunderbird Integration

See https://calendar.etherpad.mozilla.org/thunderbird-integration

  • As underpass has pointed out repeatedly (thanks for your patience!) , we need to rewrite / heavily modify the lightning articles on support.mozilla.org. let me know irc: rolandtanglao on #tb-support-crew or rtanglao AT mozilla.com OR simply start editing the articles

Unfortunately not much progress because I was away. I hope to have the packaging bits done until the weekend. Glandium did a great job on the packager.py changes, hence I nominated him for Friends of the Tree. (fallen)

MakeMyDay should comment on the opt-out dialog, I think we should get it landed asap. bug 1130852 – Opt-Out dialog had some discussion on prefs

Round Table

wsmwk

  • managed shipping of 31.6.0, 38.0b1, 38.0b2

Jorg K

rkent

  • We have the beginnings of a business development group (rkent, wsmwk, magnus) that after signing NDAs will be given access to Thunderbird business documentation.

mkmelin

  • bug 1134986 autocomplete bug investigated and landed on trunk +++

aceman

Question Time

– PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NICK with your bullet item —

  • What happened to the Avocet branding? (Jorg K)
    • won’t be persued
  • Info about the meeting with Mitchell Baker on 20th March 2015, funding issues (Jorg K)
  • http://mzl.la/1O9khi4 can we get hiro’s bugs reassigned so the patches contained can get landed, and not lost? (wsmwk)
  • It would be great if some jetpack add-on support were available in thunderbird to share functionality with firefox and fennec. See also bug 1100644. No useful jetpack add-ons seem to exist for thunderbird (earlybird would be fine to use jpm over cfx). Are there any jetpack add-ons available to prove me wrong?

(pegasus) Is it worth looking at going to a 6-week release schedule to avoid the conundrum with getting not-quite-ready features in vs delaying?

Support team

  • Reminder: Roland is leaving Thunderbird May 12, 2015 after the release of Thunderbird 38: working on Thunderbird 38 plan and finally kickstarting Thunderbird User Success Council
    • looking for 3 people: English KB Article Editor, L10N Coordinator and Forum Lead. Is that you we’re looking for? If so email rtanglao AT mozilla.com or ping  :rolandtanglao in #sumo or #tb-support-crew

Other

  • PLEASE PUT THE NEXT MEETINGS IN YOUR (LIGHTNING) CALENDAR :)
  • Note – meeting notes must be copied from etherpad to wiki before 5AM CET next day so that they will go public in the meeting notes blog.

Action Items

  • wsmwk to pat glandium
  • wsmwk to email hiro’s bug list to tb-planning
  • rkent to review tracking list

SeaMonkey: 2015-04-14

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — Jesper Kristensen @ 11:00 pm

Agenda

  • Who’s taking minutes? -> TBD
  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank:
    • TBD

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn’t been recorded in a bug)
We should assign people to the open items.

NEW

  • bug 1150082 SeaMonkey Donation Page is using the PayPal all or nothing version, instead of the usual either/or one. Mcsmurf is investigating.

OPEN

  • Official SeaMonkey Blog: Some progress with the SSL certificate issue. With the certificate, things would work easier as mcsmurf wants to sync the blog with Facebook entries. Meta bug 1147825 covers the blog work.
  • bug 1057920 SeaMonkey’s CVS dependency really should be removed. (currently used only for Releng Automation, and SeaMonkey Website).
    • This has been spun off into a separate bugs for the website and the rest. Ewong is poking at things related to Release Automation.
    • Move of the website from CVS to hg was due to happen on Monday bug 1150335.
    • Need to check all website links (e.g. Document History) now point to the correct place – Jens?

CLOSED

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • Notes:
    • Windows nightly trunk builds arewere running again briefly (thanks to Callek and Ewong) but are down again due to bug 1108970. Migrating our Windows builders to VS2013 would likely solve this and other bustages.
    • VS2010 support was removed from mozilla-central on 15th December (bug 1092468). Our Windows slaves are in the process of being upgraded to Win2008 and VS2013 (bug 1114876). There are also some upcoming changes to L10n build system in Q1 2015 (bug 1107635).
    • Buildmaster is up and running, and produces en-US builds, see 9/16 meeting’s Friends of the Fish Tank. Builds and langpacks in 18 languages including en-US are available unofficially thanks to A.Kalla. Edit: However, only 9 languages are published daily for trunk there, and en-GB is not one of them. For Aurora I didn’t check. — Tonymec (talk) 16:49, 21 January 2015 (PST)
    • bug 1083689 Langpacks aren’t updated when auto-updating SeaMonkey because they aren’t uploaded to AMO. The solution requires changes in SeaMonkey RelEng (and possibly AMO).
    • The langpacks need strict versioning e.g. min 2.30 max 2.30.* which makes sense since you don’t want 2.29 strings with 2.30 KaiRo has landed a fix in bug 1084258 (Language pack compatibility should be bound to Gecko branch, else undefined entity errors possible).
    • Due to the master having some mysql issues, Callek had put a halt on the mysql updates, which affects the SeaMonkey treeherder, or rather it would have affected our treeherder if we had one.
    • Currently in the process of migrating SeaMonkey’s release/website processes to using Mercurial.
      • Website: bug 1150335 – Migrate seamonkey-project.org to Mercurial.
      • Release: bug 1121281 – Migrate SeaMonkey’s release process off cvs.
  • [14th April 2015]
    • Windows nightly, aurora and beta builds are broken. Will be fixed by upgrading to Windows Server 2K8 and Visual Studio 2013 (bug 1114876).
    • All Trees
      • OSX64:
        • Build – Orange : bug 958812 – References of firefox.dmg hard-coded in Mozharness tests.
    • [comm-central]:
      • All Nightlies are red (as of this writing) due to bug 1153187 but they’ll turn green/orange when they run next.
    • [comm-aurora]:
      • OSX64 build: red due to a glitch in the network. (could not checkout mozilla-aurora, just retriggered the last build.)
  • See RelEng page for the RelEng status history.
  • In Bug 902876 Comment 12 Mcsmurf is waiting for feedback from the build team on how to proceed.

Release Train

  • SeaMonkey 2.33.1 was released on 23 March and is the most recent release.
  • No scheduled ETA for 2.34 beta 1 yet – depends on fixing bug 1114876
    • Need to look at possibility of a further 2.33.x release if no 2.34
    • there were 15 security fixes (5 of which critical) in the Gecko 37 cycle so far
    • next scheduled merge day is 11 May

Extensions and Plugins Compatibility Tracking

  • See Basics page. Please only list current changes here.
  • Addon Compatibility Listings
  • Firefox & Thunderbird Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/
    This tool goes a little further beyond simply modifying install.rdf – it also identifies a few more other things in the code that are Firefox or Thunderbird specific and attempts to change them. Of course, not all extensions can be ported so easily to SeaMonkey since there’s only so much an automated tool like that can do.
  • Lightning 3.8b1 builds are available for SeaMonkey 2.33.
    • reported broken bug 1133663, 3.8b2 released but may not entirely fix the issue [1].
    • Lightning 3.9b1 is available for testing once SM 2.34b1 is out.
  • SeaMonkey 2.33 and Lightning 3.8b1/3.8b2 shows no events or tasks. bug 1144285
    • The problem is that both Thunderbird and Lightning are build with Visual C++ 2013 but SeaMonkey is still build with Visual C++ 2010. Therefore the SeaMonkey installer contains only the VS2010 (msvcp100.dll/msvcr100.dll) files but not the VS2013 (msvcp120.dll/msvcr120.dll) files. The SeaMonkey switch to VS2013 is tracked in Bug 1092468.
  • The Thunderbird team is planning to ship Lightning with Thunderbird. IanN thinks we will want to ship lightning too. We should coordinate with Thunderbird. Related bugs:
    • bug 1130854 Package Lightning with Thunderbird for c-c and c-a builds.
    • bug 1113183 Integrate Lightning Into Thunderbird by Default.
    • bug 1130852 Add opt-in dialog to promote Calendar integration [Thunderbird].
  • Proposed replacement for Venkman for shipping with SeaMonkey: Tiny JavaScript Debugger. TinyJSD is a JavaScript debugger for privileged code running Mozilla products like Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey. It serves to debug the application as well as extensions written in JavaScript.
    • IanN filed bug 1133723 Investigate options for replacing Venkman with the TinyJSDebugger.
  • Our build team needs to automate DOMI branch selection rather than having to tweak the client.py every 6 weeks. bug 763506

      • Fallout thus far: bug 1133380 about:privatebrowsing (Default), bug 1133582 about:config (Modern)
    • Our front end Sync UI needs to be updated as the old backend is going away in Gecko/Firefox 31. See: New Firefox Sync has landed in Firefox Nightly. Tracked in:
      • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager.
      • bug 1003434 Add support for about:sync-progress.
      • Update SeaMonkey won’t be allowed to use the Firefox Sync 1.5 servers. Ewong is looking into hosting our own FxAccount server on a community machine or VPS.
    • A lot of these bugs are due to mozilla-central switching from synchronous APIs to Asynchronous APIs.
    • bug 566746 (asyncFormHistory) Form history should use asynchronous storage API. Tracked in:

      • MailNews bug 791645 Rewrite calls to synchronous nsIProtocolProxyService::DeprecatedBlockingResolve with Async code before DeprecatedBlockingResolve disappears as well.
    • The C++ downloads manager backend nsIDownloadManager is being decommissioned. Firefox has migrated to jsdownloads. Thunderbird is in the process of migrating. We need to decide how we are going to handle this sooner rather than later.

      • bug 888915 Move SeaMonkey to the new JavaScript API for downloads when nsIDownloadManager is decommissioned.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 26 new, 2 fixed, 12 triaged.

  • Low triaging effort, lower than average number of new bugs filed.
  • IanN thinks it would be useful to remind people on the newsgroups / forums that they can contribute by triaging. Tonymec will post a reminder to newsgroups / forums. See bug 1092632 (Sm_tri_HowTo) Document how to triage SeaMonkey bugs.
    • The draft is currently at https://wiki.mozilla.org/User:Tonymec/Triage_HowTo
    • Progress is stalled due to hardware/firmware problems with Tonymec’s current computer. Current ETA for newer computer is after Easter but this is a rough estimate. Anyone with a wikimoz account can edit the page (and is welcome to). — Tonymec (talk) 17:35, 21 January 2015 (PST)

  • See Feature List page for major wanted/needed features.
  • TODO:
    • We will need to update our Sync UI code due to the new Sync API. MoCo will not allow us to use FxAccounts (the new Sync API). We might want to update our code anyway just in case. One possibility is to set up our own Sync 1.5 server on a Community machine.
    • Bug 1127784 proposes to add a preference and UI to enable/disable playback of Encrypted Media Extensions.
