Weekly Status Report, W27/2011

Here's a short summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 27/2011 (July 4 - 10, 2011):

I feel we start moving more and more in directions to improve the situation with crashes on Firefox by attacking some of the larger areas where we are seeing problems - unfortunately, we have three large areas where the "signature" doesn't tell us a lot about what the actual problem was (GC and MethodJIT crashes as well as plugin hangs) and so those areas are hard to work on and need more instrumentation. Still, we are moving there as well. Reducing memory usages in MemShrink should help reducing out-of-memory crashes. And we just uplifted another version to the Beta channel, which should get it finally exposed to enough users to do good crash analysis. If you want to see more interesting work, though, you should check out Aurora, which already contains some more of that work on memory usage, etc. I love working in an area where you see things really moving toward getting better! :)

waiting for SM 2.3b builds to be ready
now that SM 2.2 final has been released and the 2.4a2 builds are in the aurora channel, I'm waiting for the SM 2.3 beta builds to be ready as I don't see any candidate builds for SM 2.3 beta at the moment.
