<< My Server Has Moved | The roads I take... | Brussels Is Not Whistler >>
Weekly Status Report, W05/2009
- Build System:
I did another buildsystem port as well as a followup fix to it, and I also updated the L10n Makefiles. We should be better in sync with the Mozilla 1.9.1 build system now.
The patch for easier default profile L10n also saw a slight update but is waiting for review now.
The work Callek did earlier for GLOBAL_DEPS (and which I ported to comm-central) made the build system rebuild "the world" (i.e. the whole build) when autoconf-mk changes, which is basically a good thing as we now catch all variable changes there without needing to clobber. The problem is though that every run of configure regenerates autoconf.mk and so causes such a rebuild right now. I found a solution to this now so we will only cause rebuilds when autoconf.mk did actually change. The comm-central part has landed, but the Mozilla part still needs review and 1.9.1 approval.
- Download Manager UI:
A last patch for the new download manager UI before having the backend is ready now. I hope we can close the gap and get the backend ready soon so we can switch to this for Alpha 3.
- SeaMonkey L10n:
Added Romanian to SeaMonkey as well as support for Japanese ChatZilla/Venkman.
- German L10n:
Did some updates to match current trunk development, orthographical fixes and some accesskey corrections.
- Various Discussions:
Tabmail, session (re)store, feed preview, release schedules, FOSDEM, SeaMonkey vision, Lightning, toolbar customization, etc.
I'm preparing a build with tabmail, feed preview, and session restore, possibly even the new download manager, for doing a demo this upcoming weekend at FOSDEM, I hope people will be awake on Sunday morning to see both that and the new SeaMonkey vision I will be presenting.
I'm looking forward to meeting many Mozillians as well as people from other projects in Brussels!

Yep 9:00!!! Better not go out the day before... :-/
Unrelated but I was quite shocked about what I saw on Firefox webpage (http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/): their new catchphrase is "The Browser That Has It All".
Bullshit! Everybody knows that SeaMonkey has it all (even the kitchen sink)!!!

Well, not the kitchen sink by default, but you may add it as an extension, or by bookmarking the attachment to bug 122411 (in Firefox too).
