What’s up with SUMO – 16th October

Hello, SUMO Nation!

It’s been a while, but we’re back with more updates for you! We hope you’re feeling better than some of us (*cough cough*) – rumour has it that home-made onion syrup is the best cure around, so maybe a bit of old school domestic alchemy will be required… Never mind the coughing, here are the updates!

Welcome, New Contributors!

If you joined us recently, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!

Don’t forget that if you are new to SUMO and someone helped you get started in a nice way you can nominate them for the Buddy of the Month!

Last SUMO Community meeting

Reminder: the next SUMO Community meeting…

  • …is going to take place on Monday, 19th of October. Join us!
  • If you want to add a discussion topic to upcoming the live meeting agenda:
    • Start a thread in the Community Forums, so that everyone in the community can see what will be discussed and voice their opinion here before Monday (this will make it easier to have an efficient meeting).
    • Please do so as soon as you can before the meeting, so that people have time to read, think, and reply (and also add it to the agenda).

Knowledge Base


  • for Android
    • The documentation for version 42 is wrapping up
  • for Desktop
    • The 41.0.1 release did fix the Flash/Farmville crash/hang issues – hooray!
    • This (and other factors) lead to a very, very low crash rate – double hooray!
    • Firefox 41 has been around for a while, so… it’s time to start talking Firefox 42!
    • Windows 64 bit support is coming in version 42, but you’ll have to dive deeper (into the FTP site) to get it. Mind you, there will be no support for Silverlight, Java, or other NPAPI plugins except for Flash, which is whitelisted. Apart from that, expect more security, better resource usage and fewer crashes.
    • The Norton Toolbar fix is coming late October – more updates here.
  • for iOS
    • The global launch should happen before the end of this year, but we can’t spoil the surprise for you just yet, sorry!
  • Firefox OS
More updates coming next week, and in the meantime – keep rocking the open web, people! We salute you!
