Development Updates

Fx/TB 1.5.0.9 + Fx 2.0.0.1

  • Critical TB bug will require us to release both FF and TB 1.5.0.9, along with the scheduled FF 2.0.0.1.
  • Code Freeze pushed out a week to this Friday 12/1, still have quite a few blockers that need patches.
  • Tentative release date still Thursday 12/14, but we're prepared to slip that out a few days into the following week (depending on whether or not we will need more than a couple of respins).
  • Pushed out a lot of 1.8.1.1 blocker noms to 1.8.1.2 (including all Vista bugs), but have taken most of the 1.8.0.9 blockers + some non-blockers.
  • Need to ping developers to get their patches together and approved ASAP, as this Friday's code freeze is firm (if we hope to release before Christmas holidays).
  • Still waiting final word on when we want to push 1.5.0.x -> 2.0.0.x major updates.
