Notices / Schedule

GFX 1.9.1 Update

  • GFX blocking 1.9.1+
  • GFX wanted 1.9.1+
  • (It was tempting to just delete that one line)
  • Cairo 1.8.2 update (released last week) -- has some rendering fixes we need; patch ready to go, but got ignored by talos tryservers yesterday (bug 463005) so not sure i fthere's any performance impact (shouldn't be)
  • Turning on SSE2 optimizations on win32
  • Maybe also SSE2 on linux, but we have stack alignment issues due to the version of gcc being used; there's an xpcom patch which helps, but we think it'll just make the problem less likely to happen but still possible (need 16-byte aligned stacks). Not as big of a deal as win32 though, the expensive rendering is often in the X server.
  • DL fonts access control pieces also today, pending reviews

Layout 1.9.1 Update

  • Worker Threads:
    • Last large patch to bring the implementation up to spec compliance (or really close to) ready to land.
  • Speculative script loading:

Security

Security Reviews

Roundtable

  • (tchung) See Topcrashes from Beta 1. Particularly needing blocking beta 2 attention:
    • #1, #2, #4, #8
    • #5 & #6 need more investigation
  • Can people please try to stick around after landing patches. Landing something then vanishing before even unit testers have cycled is uncool, particularly on freeze day.
