1.2 – To start simple, we have version 1.2 in the App Store right now. This was a followup bug fix release for our big November (1.1) release.

1.3 – Currently Waiting For Review is version 1.3. This is primarily a bug fix release but also contains two small features that a lot of people have been asking for: Request Desktop Site and Integration with 1Password and other compatible password managers. (pwSafe now and Lastpass when they update their app) We hope to push this to the app store end of this week.

1.4 – We are working on another small update that contains just changes for the Chinese market. These include: search engines, shortcuts (tiles), access to Chinese Firefox Sync servers. The Mozilla China team has contributed all these changes already (!) and we have merged them in the product. We will do a TestFlight build of this version soon and the goal is to get it on the App Store the week of January 11th. This is all being coordinated with the Mozilla China team and Jack Guo.

Bugs are tracked here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/showdependencytree.cgi?id=1227832&hide_resolved=0

(The bugs related to the china-specific navigator panel are not part of this 1.4 release)

2.0 – Our next bigger release. Work in progress but scheduled to go out early February. We will most likely start sending out TestFlight builds early January. Note that this will be our last ‘big’ release. We will move to a shorter and more predictable six week train model for releases after this one. Details about that will become more clear in the coming weeks.
