Tobias Leingruber is in town from Berlin, and he'll give an introduction of the ongoing Demoparty project, an initiative to foster artful exploration of open web technologies, building a bridge between Demoscene artists and HTML5/JS/CSS3/WebGL enthusiasts to show-off their skills and what browers are capable of.
See some cool demos that people have created so far and hear more about our events + online competition

Product Status Updates
Firefox Future (6, 7, 8)
- The source code migrations took place on Tuesday, 2011-07-05 (on schedule)
- Thanks to everyone who helped in the war room!
- We offered Firefox 7 (desktop) to the Aurora channel on Thursday, 2011-07-07
- There are currently discussions about mobile creating an Aurora channel
- We offered Firefox 6 (desktop and mobile) to the Beta channel on Friday, 2011-07-08
Firefox Current (3.6, 4.0, 5.0)
- We created Firefox 5.0.1 and 3.6.19 to work around Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) issues (see the blog post for details)
- We had to create an out-of-band update because Lion is coming before 6 but after 5
- Apple hasn't announced a date more exact than "July"
- We pushed Firefox 3.6.19 to the 3.6 beta audience on Friday, 2011-07-08
- Thanks to QA and RelEng for the quick turnaround and working late on a Friday!
- We did not push 5.0.1 to anyone (as the beta channel is running 6)
- Some users appear to have downloaded it from ftp already though
- We hope to release both today (Monday, 2011-07-11) and hope to only offer updates for Mac users
- No sense having all users download / install updates for a Mac-specific bug, but there are some mechanical issues to work out still
- Note that there is no need for a Firefox mobile 5.0.1
- We've seen some questions about 3.6 EOL. Short answer: still thinking/discussing, canceled a previously scheduled meeting
- We have committed to releasing Firefox 3.6.20 (previously it was 3.6.19, but the update above took that version number), shipping at the same time as Firefox 6
- More 3.6 details/planning later in August
- Thunderbird 6 went to Beta channel and Thunderbird 7 went to Aurora channel last week
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.
