42 Campaign work (TP)
Desktop Control Center and TP work is on track. We are highly aware of string freeze deadline and have imposed early deadlines for creative and legal reviews so that we can hit our 8/10 uplift. There are some known unknowns. Doing are best to make L10N’s life easier.

40
We will put win64 builds out on /all. We don’t have sandboxing until 41, nor some other added UX features. We won’t promote heavily until we have those safety/user features in there, since these are better for a broader audience.
