Notices / Schedule

Firefox 3.1 Update

  • Places
    • Fsync changes landed, and Ts regression fixed
    • Pushing to get a bunch of other perf fixes in, that were blocked by fsync
    • Privacy preference pane UI change can make slushy freeze
    • Not making 3.1:
      • search open tabs in awesomebar
      • show awesomebar results in content page
      • private browsing bookmarks root

GFX 1.9.1 Update

  • GFX blocking 1.9.1+
  • GFX wanted 1.9.1+
  • (It was tempting to just delete that one line)
  • Cairo 1.8.2 update (released last week) — has some rendering fixes we need; patch ready to go, but got ignored by talos tryservers yesterday (bug 463005) so not sure i fthere’s any performance impact (shouldn’t be)
  • Turning on SSE2 optimizations on win32
  • Maybe also SSE2 on linux, but we have stack alignment issues due to the version of gcc being used; there’s an xpcom patch which helps, but we think it’ll just make the problem less likely to happen but still possible (need 16-byte aligned stacks). Not as big of a deal as win32 though, the expensive rendering is often in the X server.
  • DL fonts access control pieces also today, pending reviews

Layout 1.9.1 Update

Content 1.9.1 Update

  • Content 1.9.1 Bugs
  • XPConnect perf work:
    • peterv’s landing his major work for b2. Some of the changes are already in the tree.
  • Worker Threads:
    • Last large patch to bring the implementation up to spec compliance (or really close to) ready to land.
  • Speculative script loading:
    • Blake has made some progress and is ready to attempt a re-landing once the tree is ready for it.

JS 1.9.1

Mobile 1.9.1 Update

General 1.9.1 Updates

  • offline cache, dcamp:
  • localStorage, honzab:
  • HTML5 drag-drop:


Security Reviews


  • (tchung) See Topcrashes from Beta 1. Particularly needing blocking beta 2 attention:
    • #1, #2, #4, #8
    • #5 & #6 need more investigation
  • Can people please try to stick around after landing patches. Landing something then vanishing before even unit testers have cycled is uncool, particularly on freeze day.
