Fx 3.1b1 (Shiretoko)/Gecko 1.9.1b1 – Status: Code Freeze
  • New features (planned/in progress)
  • Beta 1 Freeze completed, all blocking 1.9.1+ P1s have been completed and the last one or two are being landed as we speak.
  • For beta 2 we’re cranking through P2 bugs and identifying/fixing any regressions or other major bugs in the first beta.
  • Also, at this point, we should be focusing almost exclusively on blocking bugs rather than wanted bugs. The first beta was the platform feature freeze, so if there’s blockers remaining, those have the highest priority.
  • Related good news: Looks like we’re going to see good wins (approx 20%) on Dromaeo DOM tests due to hard work by Jason Orendorff and Peter Van der Beken who were in town to collaborate on DOM/JS->C++ performance improvements.
  • 74 1.9.1 blockers
  • 269 wanted bugs

    • 42 P1s. These are bugs we feel would really, really make a good release if we had a solid handful completed.
    • 57 P2s. These are medium complexity bugs/changes that are nice to have.
    • 47 P3s. The lowest priority bugs for this release. These are the ones that we will definitely take, but the others take priority.
  • currently evaluating content for revised schedule
