- on track for mid-December ship date
- Firefox 3.0.17 / Firefox 3.5.7
- schedules posted
- early February release target
- any feedback on these?
- Firefox 3.0.15 -> 3.5.5 Prompted Major Update (PMU)
- overall crashes in 3.5.5 are down from 3.5.3 and 3.5.4 thanks to CrashKill
- some crashes were fixes in our code, others were blocklisted add-ons
- even more fixes coming in 3.5.6
- as a result, we’d like to resume pushing users from 3.0.x to 3.5.x
- planning to go live with a PMU tomorrow morning
- Namoroka (Firefox 3.6)
- Released Firefox 3.6 Beta 4 on Thursday, Nov 26th in the morning
- if you’re working on an add-on that integrates with the new lightweight theme technology, please take note of this late change to the observers/notifications structure
- latest metrics show half of our 400,000+ beta users are running beta 4
- data from these users is helping us ensure a very stable Firefox 3.6 release
- closing on blockers in order to deliver a release candidate build this week
- still aiming to be ready to ship in late December
- mozilla-central will remain restricted to 1.9.2 blockers and approved patches only
- Firefox 3.7
- Gecko 1.9.2
- We killed and added blockers over the holiday. 38 remaining blockers for 1.9.2. Watching and fixing regressions & crashes based on beta feedback.
- News from the CrashKill front:
- These numbers are being updated as we get more data from the beta 4 testers. It’s really hard to tell if this beta crashes more than beta 3. We’ll know more in a few days.
- Reminder: We now have the ability to block specific DLLs from loading. For the list of DLLs we intend to block, see bug 525103.
- Team blocker numbers:
- Layout: 4
- Content: 1
- GFX: 3
- JS: 21
- TBird 3.0RC1 (Shredder)
- 3.0rc1 released
- 1 POP3 bug is causing us to consider a 3.0RC2, we hope to have that decided and (ideally) spun today.
- Planning for 3.1 and onward is underway in dev-apps-thunderbird.
