Mozilla Project Weekly Status: June 8, 2009

    • Redesign of AMO from top to bottom with our first Firefox extension (Add-on Collector) and the Collections feature!
  • Compatibility with 3.5 up to 72% thanks to Sun updating the Java Console entry- should be up another 3-4% once they complete testing of the new Java Console
  • AMO 5.0.7 release includes Contributions and Tagging, launching on 6/30


  • Firefox 3.0.11
    • found a blocker, had to respin
    • re-shipped to beta on Friday
    • aiming for a 3pm Thursday release
  • Firefox 3.0.12
    • code freeze in a little over a week
    • still lots of blockers
    • might shift final release date by a week to accommodate blockers, 3.0.11 re-spin, and Tb2.0.0.22
  • Firefox 3.5
    • 1 blocker left and it’s actually already done!
    • monitoring code freeze and helping where possible by finding regression ranges, etc, looking to help QA with testing phase as well
  • Firefox 3.5 Beta 99
    • planning on shipping a final “beta” release to get the 6 weeks of fixes out to our beta users
    • this isn’t a “proper” beta, rather a quick release to help find blockers for final
    • hoping to ship soon (today or tomorrow)
  • Firefox 3.6 (Namoroka)


  • We’ve hit zero blockers at least twice, BUT three code related blockers remain.
    • All three are JS.
    • Two of those have a fix and are in process of being finalized. Only one remains.
    • We’re blocking on correctness issues, found mostly by JS fuzzers. One plus one should equal 2.
  • Since most of the team has wrapped up 1.9.1 blockers, we’re focusing on (and have been for a while) future projects and the remaining planning. Watch dev-planning for conversations on the next release.
  • Welcome Irina Calciu from CMU!
  • For weekly engineering meeting notes and other info see the Platform page.


  • Thunderbird / Gecko
    • code frozen, builds in hand
    • QA is testing these and we’ll have a revised schedule soon
  • TBird 3.0b3 (Shredder) – Status: In Progres
    • Heads down on beta 3 work; waiting for search landing before resetting beta3 dates.
    • davida and dmose in Mountain View the first part of this week
