High Priority Work

Private Browsing

Bug Tree. We're meeting tomorrow to discuss Panel. Ideas for updating panel code have changed from what we had originally planned.

Cross-domain content scripts

Final patch pushed, backed out, fixed again. Still might be intermittent errors, but will try to push today.

Panel positioning

Landed! But needs tests.

UX Work

We have a JEP: Matteo's working the first item, "Toggle/action buttons".

Places API

Jordan: working on API design, will blog about it soon.

DOM Window for add-ons

Irakli: has been focusing on private-browsing, so nothing new on this.


Panel has been de-traitified. Still page-mods, widgets, tabs, windows. Erik would like to try to get some of these done.





API Design reading matter

The Mozilla reading group dev-reading is currently reading "The Art of Unix Programming": Erik has been reading this, and it's good (it's at ). Jordan: also TrollTech white paper:

We should kill all existing intermittents for good or disable them

There is one main intermittent failure at the moment, that Alex thinks might be fixed by a recent patch that we will uplift.

We can't really take advantage of being in a tree as much because we test on all trains

Maybe we can turn off Release and Beta, because we don't expect to uplift to these releases. Discuss this again the next time it's a problem.

Repacking for Firefox 22

We should plan and start communicating this now. Will will write up a plan for what needs to happen, circulate it, and start telling add-on developers.

bug 852240: allow `window.postMessage` to an add-on origin

Proposal to simplify communication with add-on. Comments?
