Team Updates

Android platform

  • Notes
  • I landed my gfx patches — got some good checkerboarding improvements according to talos (73%). I regressed Mac, though, so….probably need to look at that.
  • Did a bunch of work on Gecko for iOS. Fixed up WebGL, now looking to get the Gecko thread split out from the iOS main thread.
  • Landed a fix for the battery rounding thing (bug 1191918)
  • Eugen is fixing up test failures from the VP9 stuff, and also doing more investigation into JS slowness. Found that things are actually faster if we disable the JIT.
  • Dylan still looking into reftest whackiness, closing in on a solution
  • Randall is still fighting coordinate system badness with synthetic mouse events (used in mochitest). We probably need a fairly major change to the widget event stuff to fix this. He’s discussing with DOM/layout/widget folks.
  • Jim landed some stuff to move prefs code over to native calls. He’s now working on doing the same with IME. He also fixed some fallout from earlier patches regarding viewport event coalescing. Looking at headless stuff Soon.
