Product Status Updates

Firefox 4

Beta coming soon - working out some theme bugs on Windows.

Run a nightly!

Firefox 3.6

  • Firefox 3.6.4
    • Went out last Tuesday, yay!
    • Too early for metrics yet (and we have been messing with throttling). OOPP looks good so far though
  • Firefox 3.6.6 (where's 3.6.5?)
    • Quick chemspill release to increase the OOPP hang detector timeout (ONLY bug 574905)
    • Created late Friday night, went out Saturday
      • Thanks to everyone that gave up 1/2 their weekend
  • Firefox 3.6.7
    • Any 1.9.2.6 approvals are now implicitly for 1.9.2.7
    • Codefreeze was Friday
    • Still have too many open blockers (12 for 3.6.7 and 8 for 3.5.11)
      • Most are security fixes with trunk patches, we need to fix them on branches as we are exposing users, especially before BlackHat (end of July)
    • Only taking blockers at this time, and we need to get them all in TODAY

Mobile Firefox

Thunderbird

Older Branch Work

  • Firefox 3.5.11
    • Release is tied to 3.6.7, Codefreeze was Friday
    • Still have too many open blockers (8 security bugs for 3.5.11)
      • Most are security fixes with trunk patches, we need to fix them on branches as we are exposing users, especially before BlackHat (end of July)
    • Only taking blockers at this time, and we need to get them all in TODAY
  • Firefox 3.0.x
    • RelEng has shut down the 3.0 build machines, so we can no longer do an update for 3.0 users easily
    • We will be doing an advertised update (the pop-up window) to 3.6.6 for users shortly (we have done previous versions already to get people to move off 3.0)

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation.
