Schedule & Progress on Upcoming Releases

Firefox 3.6.x/3.5.x/4.0.x

  • Rebuilding 3.5.19 and 3.6.17 today for bug 650522 (and adding 1 additional fix for 3.5.19 which already made it into 3.6.17)
  • We will not be rebuilding 4.0.1 as it is unaffected
  • There appears to be very low ADUs for our 3.5 and 3.6 audience, even on the beta channel
    • We are investigating this today and tomorrow
  • Currently on track for 2011-04-26 but it is potentially at risk due to the ADU investigation above

Firefox 4.0.1 advertised major update

  • Currently on track for 2011-05-03 but it is potentially at risk due to the ADU investigation above

  • Aurora channel/triage meetings are going well
      • Please add tracking-firefox5:? if there is a bad bug drivers need to check
  • RelEng and l10n is spinning up the mozilla-beta repos so we can test channel switching and have the repos/builds ready on the merge date
  • Scheduled merge to beta is on 2011-05-17
  • Need to verify that the Firefox 5 Release Tracking list is as complete as possible -- the Product Marketing Managers and PR need a solid list ASAP. If you worked on something for Fx5 please check to see if it's on the list or not, and if it's not either add it or ping deb.
