  • Gecko 1.9.2
    • Wrapping up remaining blockers for 1.9.2 alpha freeze.
    • Still putting the final touches on, but Chris Jones is wrapping up the remaining work on Infallible malloc Stage 1. Read more here. Hopefully, this will result in a significant reduction in code size (some say 10%), reduce the need to do OOM checking manually, and can be a security improvement (unhandled malloc() failures can be exploitable, etc)
