Product Status Updates
Firefox Future (7, 8, 9)
- Release trains continuing smoothly
- Mitchell and Johnath both wrote posts about the rapid release process (and actually so have Jesse and Kairo, too)
Firefox Current (3.6, 6.0)
- There will be a Firefox 3.6.21. Main goal is to backport Firefox 7 security fixes, will ship at the same time as Firefox 7
- There is a schedule available on the wiki with freeze dates
- 3.6 EOL? No news to share on that yet. Assume we are sticking with the status quo (creating updates for 3.6) until told differently
- Thunderbird 7 was released to Beta channels.
- Thunderbird’s Channel Page is up.
(no voice update this week) What would you include in a "Webmaking 101" course?
- The School of Webcraft is designing a beginner's "Webmaking 101" course
- The heart of the course will be a series of projects and learning challenges
- Looking for feedback from MDN and broader Mozilla community on these draft challenges: http://webmaking101.p2pu.org/challenges
- a) are these challenges good?
- b) what's missing? what else do you need to know to become an effective novice web developer?
- Please post feedback as comments to this blog post
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.
