Schedule

  • Next merge is 2012-11-19
    • Only 3 business days til merge!

Major Topics for This Week

ARMv6 Decision

ARMv6 is a Go for Fx17. We decided to ship Fx17 using the same blocklist setup as we use for Fx17 Beta. ARMv6 minimum specs are 512MB RAM and 800MHz CPU. We also have a progression planned for future releases: Fx18 min CPU drops to 600MHz; Fx19 min RAM drops to 384MB; Fx20 adds support for smaller screens.

Project 256 Status

Lots of patches landing related to memory usage, including some initially used for FirefoxOS. Kats reports that Firefox will now start and load CNN on a Motorola Milestone (256 MB). The experience is not great, but we can look into more profiling and memory reductions.

Little Things

Some neat stuff landing in Fx19: Allow last tab to be closed (bug 786982), Proxy support (bug 749352), Swipe between tabs on Awesomescreen (bug 759041) and Multi-window support on Samsung Notes and SIII (bug 810415)
