Product Status Updates

Firefox 6

  • Tuesday, May 24th (TOMORROW) is the mozilla-central → mozilla-aurora source migration
  • To make sure your fixes make the cut they need to be in the tree by 11:59 pm PDT
  • There will be blog posts and comments in #developers announcing when the merge is starting and ending so fixes can be targeted for the proper version
  • There will be a Mercurial “war room” tomorrow, as the source migration may be more complicated. Time TBD (most likely 10:00 am PDT)
  • Please note the difference between source migration and updates being offered

Firefox 5

  • Offered to the existing Firefox 4 beta audience on Friday (throttled)
    • Will unthrottle this week
