Weekly Status Report, W37/2010
Worked on our first "oilspill" release, which shipped as SeaMonkey 2.0.8 this week to fix a startup crash seen by some people upgrading to the 2.0.7 version.
The turnaround times were pretty good there, collaboration with Firefox and Thunderbird folks worked flawlessly where needed, and our release automation systems showed how well they can work - it took them about 8 hours of wall-clock time from the signal to start builds until builds and updates in all 24 languages had been built and verified for correct application of updates.
- Doorhanger notifications:
This is off my plate now, I hope someone else will look into those, but as Neil is rewriting the system and I'm tight on time in the next few weeks, I can't bring myself to wait for him and them rewrite all the patches to fit his ideas. I got other work to do and I have to care about shipping builds, deferring work indefinitely for a large rewrite is nothing I can work with in the last weeks before a feature freeze.
- Data Manager:
I started addressing the first review comments from Ian on Data Manager, it looks like we're making good progress there, I'm waiting for his actual code comments as those have been mostly from testing so far.
We had a few discussions on OpenSearch support, I think we are coming to terms on how to progress with this, but I need to put a bit more work into it to address comments.
As one more step to make them look better, I created a patch for making sidebar look good with Personas, I think the browser window is coming around to looking really decently with those lightweight themes now.
- SeaMonkey L10n:
Finnish could be added as a new locale for SeaMonkey 2.0.x, I hope we'll get it to a shippable state in the next updates.
- Various Discussions:
A lot of my time in that week was occupied by planning the SeaMonkey Developer Meeting 2010, our first ever event of this type. Invitations are out now, the hotel is settled, and we are going strong in getting the rest of the event together.
Also, on the weekend, I had the privilege to attend the German Mozilla Community Meetup in Cologne, reports from that are available in German language for both day 1 and day 2 (though the latter one still needs to get finished and published).
