Rush of Releases

Between 27July and 27August, we shipped the following releases:

  • Funnelcake 9
  • Firefox 3.6a1
  • Firefox 3.0.13 (with refreshed MU for manual CheckForUpdate)
  • Firefox 3.5.2
  • enabled FF 3.0.13->3.5.2 Major Update for idle-background notification
  • Martin 1.0
  • Thunderbird
  • Fennec 1.0b3

…and in progress this week are:

  • Firefox 3.0.14 (with refreshed MU for manual CheckForUpdate)
  • Firefox 3.5.3
  • Fennec 1.0a3

That is quite an impressive list of releases from Mozilla in such a short time, and great to see how all the different groups worked together to make it all happen. However, when you put those releases in context of everything else that happened in RelEng 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.

I am immensely proud of how the RelEng group handled the last month – its been quite a rush, and throughout it all, everything was handled calmly, smoothly and professionally.
