What’s Up with SUMO – 24th November

Greetings, SUMO Nation!

Great to be read by you once more :-) Have you had a good November so far? One week left! And then… one month left until 2017 – time flies!

Welcome, new contributors!

  • …yes, autumn and winter are the slowest months for us, in case you haven’t noticed :-) But, all of you who are already on board keep things rolling!

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

Contributors of the week

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!

SUMO Community meetings

  • LATEST ONE: 23rd of November – you can read the notes here and see the video at AirMozilla.
  • NEXT ONE: happening on the 30th of November!
  • If you want to add a discussion topic to the upcoming 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 Wednesday (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).
    • If you can, please attend the meeting in person (or via IRC), so we can follow up on your discussion topic during the meeting with your feedback.




Support Forum

  • A reminder that Firefox 50 is out, so you may notice a spike in user questions, as usual around a release. Keep rocking and being helpful! You can find the release notification here.
  • The SUMO Release Report for Firefox 50 is coming up soon, thanks to Rachel – start thinking about the highlights you’d like to add to it.

Knowledge Base & L10n

  • Over 400 edits in the KB in all locales in the last week – thank you so much, Editors & Reviewers!
  • Congrats to our new Locale Leader for Russian, Harry and the new Reviewers: Aleksandr and Victor!
  • Please watch the Platform video for more insight on how l10n is going to work after the migration. The link is up there, in the “Platform” section. If you have any questions or comments, the feedback document is there for you.


  • for Desktop
    • The forum thread for version 50 is here (thanks to Philipp).
    • As for Android, the Desktop version will get updated mid-December. Stay tuned for more details.
    • Firefox Focus hit the ground running on November 17th all around the world, apart from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, where it’s coming… soon!

That’s it for today, dear SUMO People :-) We hope to see you soon around the site and online in general… Keep rocking the helpful web and don’t forget there’s a lot of greatness out there. Go open & go wild!
