  • Next merge day is Mon, Mar 30, 2015
    • 38 becomes Beta

  • Firefox 36.0.1 Desktop and Mobile shipped last week (release notes)
  • 37 Beta 4
    • Desktop shipped yesterday
    • Mobile ships today

  • Reminder that there are only 3 weeks left until the 37 release (release date Mar 31) due to the short cycle.

Current Cycle 39.1

Top priorities:

  • Reading List work for spring campaign (concern over services portion)
  • e10s
  • Add-on Signing
  • Tracking Protection
  • Perpetual search work

EME: Backing out of beta 37. No-go. Project is at-risk for 38 due to partner testing issues.
