Weekly Status Report, W21/2011
- Mozilla work / crash-stats:
I filed a couple of bugs on plugins info in detailed crash reports and display what plugin crashed - I hope those will lead to helping us some day.
As always, I continued to look into rising crashes with my experimental stats.
Along with that, I had some planning talks with my team and manager, and I/we looked into the crash stats for the new Firefox beta channel builds. I hope they'll come around to be less crashy than Firefox 4 in the end when they get released.
To fill the gap of not having stats for the different Beta builds specifically, I wrote up some scripts of my own to provide some preliminary analysis.
- Firefox cleanup patches:
My places library cleanup as well as search code and sidebar cleanup patches landed on mozilla-central after the uplift to Aurora, but they're at least in the Nightly builds now.
- Data Manager:
A small patch for resizing the window came along, which I promptly reviewed - thanks for the help there!
- SeaMonkey Build & Release:
I filed a bug to get featured search engines to work for SeaMonkey 2.1, and also looked into the bugs to get that category beefed up a bit and personas added on AMO for the 2.1 release.
For the new release channels on the L10n dashboard, I did a small fix across central, aurora and beta so that could be set up correctly - and I reviewed the patch for getting buildbot run the new channels, Callek is doing good work there.
On the 2.1 release, I helped a bit in investigating a problem we saw with build 1 for RC2, I hope we can sort those problems out soon (mostly with L10n repacks and updates messing up optional extensions on Windows). In addition, I gathered some more data for potential b2->final updates for languages that didn't ship in b3.
- SeaMonkey L10n:
I continued to look into sign-offs for 2.1 as long as RC2 isn't shipped, so we can ship the newest work localizers have there.
- Various Discussions/Topics:
JS PGO and crashes, 5.0b2 data, SeaMonkey preparing for jump onto moving trains, JS debugger future, nightly->aurora uplift, build/test turnaround speeds, go/no-go-decisions, web application runtimes and memory usage, MeeGo N900 DE becoming somewhat usable, etc.
Builds are coming along nicely, even though SeaMonkey 2.1 hit a snag with those update and repack problems we caught in release verifications. As Callek's time is short and mine even shorter, we couldn't fully address the issues yet, but he has potential patches for most of the problems and should spin further builds soon, hopefully 2.1 will actually happen then.
Meanwhile, builds against aurora and beta branches are being generated for SeaMonkey as well, though no daily or beta builds from those are available yet. Those will come once 2.1 has been dealt with.
For Firefox, while new Aurora builds haven't been in the wild this week yet and we'll only see crash stats for them the just-started week, we had some interesting analysis of the first real Beta channel builds already, and their crash rate isn't yet where we want it, but we got some interesting analysis out of them to work on improvements. I hope those will work out and we'll see Firefox 5 beat the stability of 4 in the end.
