Action Items

Schedule & Progress on Upcoming Releases

Firefox 4 (Desktop)

Firefox 4 (Mobile)

Firefox 3.6/3.5

  • Released build #2 of 3.6.13 and 3.5.16 today to beta audience, with a fix for bug 614565
  • Still plan to release on December 9th
  • Draft schedule for 3.6.14 and 3.5.17 will come next week

Add-on Builder 1.0a7

  • Shipped Add-on Builder on new AMO infra (yay! – completed AMO goal in the process)
  • New staging and unit test framework now active.
  • 1.0a7 is under development and on track
  • Started initial thinking on which release should qualify as beta, best case looking like 1.0a8 – likely will contain the Skywriter/Cloud9 merge.

Input 2.1

  • Release Date: 12/9
  • Features: Suggestions, Siphon by Device Types (for mobile), Better search on past releases
  • Starting development work on 3.0 and targeting code freeze for end of December (with release in early January).

Jetpack SDK 0.10

  • blockers resolved
  • Add-on SDK 1.0b1 RC1 today
  • Add-on SDK 1.0b1 final Monday, December 6?
  • 1.0b1 is not a feature-complete beta, as we intend to enhance existing APIs and add new APIs in future beta releases
  • but it is a feature-stable beta, which means that we don’t expect to make any breaking changes to the existing APIs in subsequent betas
  • and the bar for making such changes will be very high (i.e. we’ll have to have a very good reason to break any APIs we ship in 1.0b1)

Highlights / Notices

  • Weekly Feedback Report
    • Same issues as last week, but in general, less complaints (probably due to thanksgiving?).
