<< Dynamic Default Window Size For SeaMonkey | The roads I take... | 1000 Bugs Killed In 8 Weeks! >>
Weekly Status Report, W19/2008
- Automated Testing:
The work on getting our machines pass all tests went on this week, with some success I might say. People are also looking into getting a Mac machine added to our automated testing stack.
Andrew's patch for mochitest focus problems did go in, making all tests pass on Linux. The remaining Windows problems could really be tracked to a small window size, and I could fix them with a dynamic default window size for our browser window.
With this, we are finally passing all existing automated tests and can display those machines on our primary tinderbox waterfall, making failures block development.
- Preference Migration:
The JVM-switch-less advanced pref panel might make it now, some reviews are still pening.
Application preferences help needs even more work though.
- nsSuiteGlue Cleanup:
The issue mentioned last week about not removing observers is solved with my checkin to the bug.
- German L10n:
I once again kept SeaMonkey L10n complete on trunk, remaining orange is for a excess string due to a patch removed temporarily for the Thunderbird alpha, but this should go back soon and we'll visually go green again.
- Various Discussions:
Reviews and automated tests, kill-wallet, session (re)store, Thunderbird/mailnews development, www.mozilla.org planning, MoFo ED Search, etc.
The renewed Thunderbird effort, now driven by Mozilla Messaging has beaten us in providing a first Alpha based on Mozilla 1.9 code, mainly due to SeaMonkey still being blocked by switching download and password manager to new implementations as well as finishing the preference migration (all of which are being worked on now). Congratulations to getting this testing preview release out the door!
The good thing for us there is that they have been test-driving the automated release generation harness for a non-Firefox product the first time, and we would also like to use those automation processes for 2.x, so we now can ask them how to do it.
Still, they have not released any localizations for this Alpha and don't care about automated updates from it to newer versions, while we would like to have both of those in place for our alpha. I hope this will work well and that we'll be nearing the point in time soon where we can get our new code into the public for more testing than now with just nightlies.
