Weekly Update 2007-05-28 Note

Posted: Sunday, May 27, 2007 by El Guru in Firefox, Fx 1.5, Fx 2.0, Fx 3.0, Thunderbird

While there is an agenda (very basic) listed on the Weekly Update site, I doubt that there will be a weekly update this Monday due to the Memorial Day Holiday. If all goes as planned these things should happen this week:

  • Fx/TBird (Final Update/Release on the Fx 1.5 Branch) released – Wednesday, May 30th
  • Fx released – Wednesday, May 30th
  • Fx 3.0a5/Gecko 1.9a5 released – Thursday, May 31st

Update: The agenda for the May 28th meeting has been removed from the WeeklyUpdates site. Next meeting will be Monday, June 4th.


Sound Issues Fixed Themselves?

Posted: Sunday, May 27, 2007 by El Guru in Add-ons, Fx 2.0, Ubuntu

As a result of the Ubuntu Sound Issues as well as post on the Ubuntu Forums, I had some suggestions as to how to fix my issues.  Now this morning I booted directly into Ubuntu and the dangest thing happened, I had sound again. I also have determined that my other sound issue were being caused by as Nogg3r5 put it: “unreliable alpha software”.

So far so good, I’ve been using Fx 2 along with Banshee media player all morning.  Just wish Foxy Tunes supported Banshee.  I did drop the folks at Foxy Tunes a note about this as it had been discussed in their forums prior but that was back in July 2006.
