Weekly Status Report, W04/2011
- Build Infrastructure:
Worked with Callek some more on buildbot migration fallout resolution while he got 2.0.12 builds done.
I also helped investigating and discussing some omni.jar switch fallout.
- Jökulsárlón Download Manager:
I did some more work on Jökulsárlón Download Manager, putting in some suggested fixes, and making list loading more stable and more usable. This culminated in version 0.3 now being available on AMO.
- Data Manager:
I discovered a slight bug with international domain names (IDN) in the Data Manager search, and created a patch for that, which meanwhile has landed in SeaMonkey trunk.
In addition, I started investigating the largest open work item I have on my plate for this feature: adding a web storage panel. Die to the still rare usage, all of application cache, DOM Storage (global/localStorage), and indexDB will be listed in that panel, and some of those have clumsy mechanics to get what I need there, so it's not as easy as I hoped so far, and I made less progress than I hoped, but I hope I can get to something useful soon.
- SeaMonkey L10n:
I went through the pending sign-offs for the next beta on the L10n dashboard, accepted or rejected them as possible or necessary, and in the process wrote up a sign-off check list for documentation on what I'm looking at there.
In preparation for the FOSDEM conference coming up this weekend, I prepared a first version of the slides for my talk about In-tab UI in the Mozilla DevRoom.
This topic as well as my whole presence on this conference will not be SeaMonkey-centered, but I hope to meet some fellow SeaMonkey community members as well as a whole lot of Mozillians and people from other projects there.
- Various Discussions/Topics:
Ongoing graphics driver instabilities, more Fennec testing on the N900, fighting wiki spam, getting SeaMonkey future going, thinking about my own future plans, FOSDEM, Firefox Betas, getting the JS engine fixed for SeaMonkey browser-chrome tests, Firefox 4 UI, etc.
Jens has made his "InvisibleSmiley" quite visible when he landed built-in Sync support in SeaMonkey trunk in the last days of the week, which now makes exchange of all browser data like bookmarks, history, form data, tabs, etc. easy between different installations of SeaMonkey, Firefox, and even mobile Firefox - and you can even access your browser data on an iPhone with the "Firefox Home" app (just see "Firefox" and "SeaMonkey" as more or less synonyms when it comes to Sync, the service is operated and written by Mozilla primarily for Firefox, but SeaMonkey is just using exactly the same code)!
With this and having some testing of the nightlies that followed this landing, we should be ready for doing a SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2 very soon now and probably will get it going this week still, with a large number of improvements since the first beta.
I'm also looking forward to meet as many Mozillians and people from other communities as possible at FOSDEM in Brussels!
