Greetings, SUMO Nation!
Welcome to one of the “final stretch” posts for 2016 on (y)our blog. The last days of the year are a bit binary – because of the holidays (for many of us), they’re a bit slower and mellower… Then again, because it’s the end of the year, many things are to be finalized, locked down, and completed – so there’s a bit of a rush as well :-) No time to waste, then… Dive into the news below, friends!
Welcome, new contributors!
If you just joined us, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!
- LATEST ONE: 21st of December – you can read the notes here (and see the video at AirMozilla).
- NEXT ONE: happening on the 28th of December!
- Reminder – 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.
- The SUMO Release Report for Firefox 50 is live!

That’s A LOT of edits :-)) You will be asked to contribute your stories/opinions to it, so keep your eyes peeled for more information coming your way :-)
