Team Updates

Android platform

  • Notes
  • Mostly the same as last week
  • Have Gecko on iOS built and running, working on fixing up some things that ted asked about
  • Started thinking about e10s — need to start coordinating with frontend folks on that

Android front-end

margaret, ally, liuche, mcomella, mhaigh, sebastian

  • [mcomella] In bug 1201206, I will have our app inherit from the “AppCompat” base styles from the support library.
    • I’ll send out an email when this lands, but look-out for styles that have changed and don’t look right! Particularly on lesser used API levels (e.g. Gingerbread)
    • This is to allow use of some support library features which require the styles (e.g. DialogFragment)
    • Will also eventually move towards a unified UI across API levels (bug 1202076).
  • [mcomella] Material 3-dot menu icon (i.e. round 3-dot icon) fallout is fixed – let me know if you see further issues
  • [sebastian] Project “KidFox”: Everything’s fixed in Nightly and Aurora. bug 1203011 has not been uplifted in time (Merge Day). Requested uplift for Beta.
  • [liuche] Onboarding A/B testing landed (43), next is updating firstrun titles bug 1185002, importing bookmark structure bug 1205824
  • [ally] Awesomescreen: Search History is now independent of Search Engine suggestions bug 1200367, Nightly only, making everything prettier bug 1199335 & bug 1195614
