Feature Focus

Highlights

We moved about:home redesign to Fx26 for now. We also moved Push to Waiting Room/Need info since it’s currently in a holding pattern until background tasks are sorted out. There was a thread about WebRTC being ready to ship. It’s not but we need it to go to beta so we can get more testing and converge so we’re ready for Fx24 GA on 09/17. Also, wonderful job in general!

Round Table

User Advocacy

The Firefox 22 Sentiment Report is live.

Gearing up for 23, Beta feedback is good.

Firefox Release and Beta ratings on the Play store are the same, 4.33, with Release rising more rapidly than Beta. We are now in the interesting situation where our release product is more highly rated than Beta (mainly due to more users).

Market Insights from the Product Marketing Strategy Team

Desktop / Platform

Microsoft

  • Microsoft announced an updated version of its modern.IE tools for Internet Explorer 11 Developer Preview [1] along with 3 additional offerings: 25% off Parallels Desktop 8 virtualization for Mac until August 19th, new virtual machines for testing IE11 on Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 [2], and a free screenshot service powered by BrowserStack.com that shows how a site renders across browsers and devices. Microsoft is also offering $11,000 as bug bounty to identify new vulnerabilities in IE11. Also coming in IE11 is WebGL support with CORS for security [3] and Companion Web to enable websites to be built for multiple devices [4]

Google

  • Chromecast received positive reviews after its launch last week [5], was sold out in several channels quickly [6], and had to stop the free Netflix promo [7] due to demand.
  • New digitally-signed malware hijacks Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts via Chrome plugins (and Firefox too) [8].
  • Google Chromebooks positioned for Enterprises with value proposition of freeing up IT professionals to “spend time on innovation, not maintenance” implying “high uptime, low service costs and scalable deployment of new Web-based applications and content”. The Play store currently sells the Acer C7 for $199, Samsung Chromebook for $249, and the high-end Pixel for $1299. [9]

Mobile

  • Google is expected to unveil the Moto X device at an event in New York tomorrow, the 1st of August. It is the first that was designed after the OEM’s acquisition by Google.
  • Google has revealed the 4.3 version of Android, that introduces improvements to multi – user support and stricter parental controls. There is support for Open GL ES 3.0 and DRM APIs. The list of updates points to a focus on the tablet form factor, that is more likely to be shared in the familiy and that has greater needs for smooth graphics support and copyright protection.
  • Foxconn, recently renamed to FIH Mobile, is rumored to be planning to design and sell its own line of smartphones and to be aiming for a carrier – centric distribution model. Foxconn has also applied for a 4G license in Taiwan, that would further diversify its business.
  • Huawei has decided to shift its main focus to Europe and pull out from the US, claiming that the North American country proved to be a “commercial disappointment”. The Chinese company has been looking to sell more network equipment in the US among concerns on the security and privacy of the solutions they offer.
  • A Nokia executive has come out to say that Microsoft must evolve the way it operates to make Windows Phone a success.
  • All three major Russian operators have stopped selling the iPhone among dissatisfaction on the tough contractual requirements that Apple has. The three carriers, Vimpelcom, MTS and MegaFon blamed “draconian contracts” and “harsh conditions … especially in the marketing department”. Russia is a market with 180 million subscribers with a particularly tough environment for high – end devices, as subsidies are not allowed.
  • Rumors of a cheaper version of the iPhone have emerged again, this time with more consistency. They mention a plastic cover for the device as well as availability in different colors. Launch data would be around September, just in time for the holiday gifting season. Important because the iPhone would be approaching the space that Firefox OS is competing in. It is not expected that they would be direct competitors right off the bat, but it is something to keep watching.
  • Chinese mobile users over-index in the reading, utility and productivity usage categories, as reported by Flurry Analytics.

It is, however, somewhat faster.)

  • App Manager mockups are being handed off to UX

Market Insights from the Product Marketing Strategy Team

Desktop / Platform

Google

  • Google introduced a little $35 device called Chromecast that allows you to watch videos from the cloud right on the TV. [1] Measuring just two inches in length, Chromecast runs a “simplified version” of Chrome OS. It plugs into any HDMI input port and links up other Google products in the home (Android and Chrome-based) such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Chromecast streams the content (i.e. YouTube, Netflix, Google Play social games, etc.) from the device source via the cloud. The smartphone operates as the remote control. For developers, there is the new Google Cast SDK. [2]
  • 60% of all Internet end devices/users exchange traffic with Google servers during the course of an average day and 25% of North America’s consumer Web traffic through its servers. [3] It was only 6% at the last study in 2010. [4]
  • Google is experimenting with encryption of Google Drive consumer data [5] concerned about PR after PRISM revelations and demonstrating that consumer data can be protected from government snooping.

Apple

  • OS X 10.9 Mavericks coming soon compresses memory for optimum battery life and more-than-responsive graphics. [6] App Nap keeps track of what’s being computed versus what’s being used and automatically drops CPU power usage of an idle operation or function in order to conserve battery and energy. Safari bookmarked articles can be scrolled through from one article to the next, without breaking the user’s concentration to locate a similar article. Accelerated scrolling allows for fast searching through dense email inboxes, deep conversations and image-heavy webpages.

Microsoft

  • Microsoft plans to add Java Standard Edition to its Windows Azure cloud service [7] both as a stand-alone PaaS (platform as a service) and as component of a Windows Server IaaS (infrastructure as a service).
  • With Opera moving to Webkit, Microsoft’s Windows computers now account for 96% of SSL certificates with a stapled OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol) response, one of the methods used by browsers to check the revocation status of an SSL certificate without traffic burden on the Certificate Authority [8]

Agenda

  • Who’s taking minutes? -> mcsmurf

  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank
    • -

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn’t been recorded in a bug) We should assign people to the open items.

NEW

OPEN

CLOSED

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • No Windows langpacks since 8th April on trunk. Needs investigating.

    • Comment from mcsmurf on this: Not clear what is meant by this, please clarify. xpi/win32/ folders on FTP server look fine. Also file a bug if something needs to be investigated/fixed.

  • Tinderbox is EOL now. Callek set up a newer version of TBPL at [1] that doesn’t depend on tinderbox up (TBPL currently broken due to new buildmaster).
  • Buildmaster up and running, although stuck behind a locked door at the moment.
    • Builds are running and uploading, but tbpl and normal views into the process re not public.

    • Ewong and Callek can manually look at builds and results, as well as generate releases.
    • Callek is hand-approving requests for CLOSED TREE landings until he gets things visible enough to open the tree. (Callek only because these approvals preclude that Callek is watching results manually).
    • Linux64 is still busted for 2.20+, Callek has a fix planned (bug 890594).
  • bug 740633 set up seamonkey HPs in scl3. Hardware installed and iLO configured. CentOS 6.3 installed.
  • comm-* will be building out of mozilla-* eventually (bug 648979 etc.). Jcrammer is working on this.

Release Train

  • SeaMonkey 2.20 beta 1 released on July 9th.

  • SeaMonkey 2.20 beta 2 scheduled to be released on July 23rd.
  • Linux64 broken on comm-central and comm-aurora due to gtk header issues, (already fixed prior to hardware failure on linux32)

Extensions Compatibility Tracking

2.Next

  • Current breakages:

      • TB bug 880595 Recent changes making spell check more async (Bug 856270) broke spell check in Thunderbird.
      • TB bug 881588 message header is read-only when compose window is reused.
      • Core bug 887010 InlineSpellChecker.addDictionaryListToMenu fails if called straight after InlineSpellChecker.enabled is set to true (and no async work around).
  • Mozilla-central bugs that affect us:
    • Note: Please file bugs if you notice any landing on mozilla-central that might break us. Please don’t depend on Ratty noticing such landings.

    • bug 769764 move proxy resolution to separate thread and remove sync api. Tracked in:
      • MailNews bug 791645 Rewrite calls to synchronous nsIProtocolProxyService::DeprecatedBlockingResolve with Async code before DeprecatedBlockingResolve disappears as well.
    • bug 737615 Remove use of synchronous cache API from unit tests. Tracked in:
      • bug 804972 Remove synchronous calls to nsICacheSession::openCacheEntry in SeaMonkey tests.

      • Mcsmurf says this is almost fixed but there was a test failure. He will close this bug and open a new one for the failure.
    • bug 793634 Force builds to be compatible with gtk 2.18/glib 2.22. Tracked in:
    • bug 795144 default –disable-gnomeui icon theme support
      • porting bug needed for the two configure.in changesets? Changes could be folded into bug 794772 above. *** IanN and Ewong are looking into this..
    • bug 839034 move markPageAsXXX methods to nsINavHistoryService. Tracked in:
    • bug 627699 Port GTK2 to GTK3. Tracked in:
      • bug 882036 Port GTK2 to GTK3 – SeaMonkey Part.
    • bug 846635 Use asynchronous getCharsetForURI in getShortcutOrURI. bug 834543 Add asynchronous version of setCharsetForURI and getCharsetForURI. Tracked in:
      • bug 896947 Use asynchronous version of setCharsetForURI and getCharsetForURI in getShortcutOrURI and other places.
    • Session store problems
      • Might get fixed by bug 886116 Port | Bug 698565 – stop excluding keys when calling JSON.stringify() and follow-ups | to SeaMonkey

Feature List, Planning

LDAP Autocomplete has been migrated to Toolkit interfaces. Much goodness should ensue, including favicons in URL autocomplete and the ability to delete items.

Private Browsing is now mostly complete and uplifted to 2.18 2.19. Most things should work but some edge cases have probably been missed. Hopefully any remaining bugs will be found before its release.

  • Testing would be appreciated! Please file bugs as blocking the meta bug 460895.

  • We need to figure out if we want a new about:privatebrowsing page which someone will have to write (bug 842439).

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 42 new, 23 fixed, 17 triaged.

  • Medium triaging effort.

Open reviews/flags:
23 review
7 super-review
2 ui-review
6 feedback

  • See Feature List page for major wanted/needed features.

    • Ratty suggests featuring one or more bugs from that page at each meeting.
  • Featured helpwanted bugs:

Good First Bugs

  • Note: The GFB list is open to all including our regular contributors.

  • Ratty is working on an updated GFB list, suggestions welcome.
  • Everyone is welcome to look at the GFBs or if they find a bug they want to tackle then ask in irc://moznet/seamonkey and we’ll find a mentor if you need it.
  • New GFBs recently added:
  • Currently there are 24 GFBs open, 2 are being actively worked on.
  • List of Open mentored bugs.
    • Ratty notes that there are 23 bugs that are GFBs but without the mentor keyword. These need to be audited to see if they are really suitable as GFBs.
  • Mentors of stalled bugs should try to communicate with the assignees and if they can’t work on them any more to unassign/free up those bugs.
