Mozilla now has 9 active branches!

The mozilla-1.9.2 branch (aka the Firefox 3.6 branch) went live last week, quietly and with no fuss.  My last post is now out of date. The newly increased list of active branches is:

  • Firefox 3.0.x (aka cvs-trunk, mozilla-1.9.0)
  • Firefox 3.5.x (aka mozilla-1.9.1)
  • Firefox 3.6.x (aka mozilla-1.9.2)
  • Firefox (aka mozilla-central)
  • mobile-browser
  • TraceMonkey
  • Places
  • Electrolysis
  • Thunderbird 2.0.0.x (aka mozilla-1.8.1)

What struck me the most about setting up this mozilla-1.9.2 branch was how smoothly it went. Even with the other distractions and complications going on at the time, setting up this new mozilla-1.9.2 branch felt to me like the smoothest new branch setup I’d seen so far. An encouraging metric for how our infrastructure is scaling up.

Nice, very nice.

  1. […] That is quite an impressive list of releases in such a short time. However, when you put it in context of everything else that happened this month: setting up new branches for place, electrolysis, mozilla-192… and recovering from a colo outage in record time… and enabling l10n nightly updates… and solving an imaging problem and then spinning up a bunch of mobile devices… all while some folks were on vacation… and while doing all those releases! Wow. […]
