Weekly Status Report, W40/2012

Here's a short summary of Mozilla-related work I've done in week 40/2012 (October 1 - 7, 2012):

It's probably quite visible in my updates that B2G / Firefox OS has become a much larger focus in my work recently, as it's moving from a feature work into a performance improvement and stabilization phase. The crash reporting UX is probably right at the borderline of that, as it's technically feature work, but needed as a large help for improving stability. I'm also testing the system a lot, with the default apps including the browser as well as my own apps, most importantly Lantea Maps, where it find it most annoying that I currently cannot save anything from the app to a file on the phone, so though I can record GPS tracks, I need to throw them away afterwards. I'll need to find a solution there.
That said, the system is shaping up nicely for a first edition geared towards a low-end smartphone market. I hope it will be successful in that setting, as it will only show its full power once we have that step behind us and can move to devices with more resources in addition to the low-end ones. :)

B2G & Files
If you're feeling the pain of not being able to save to a file on the phone then others are too.
Are we doing anything to remedy this?

Well, for one thing, there's no web API for saving files. For the other, I think it's a bug that we fail to do anything with opening items (pages/files) on the web with a MIME type we have no app to handle. I'll need to see if we have a bug on that - if not, one needs to be filed.
