Description

At the Jan 5th Mozilla Enterprise meeting, the following was presented:

  • moving forward with proposal with FF10, to be called "Mozilla

Firefox ESR" (ESR = Enterprise Service Release)

  • implementation details tbd
    • announced through blogs, Moz wiki
  • downloads as signed, compiled and branded binaries
    • security and point releases on update channel
  • 12wk timeline before 3.6 EOL (Apr 24, 2012)
  • Next ESR version: FF17
  • ESR Beta
    • available now (FF10 beta)
    • sending feedback on beta from enterprises
      • Mozilla Enterprise mailing list
      • Bugzilla
  • reference: Mozilla's Extended Support Proposal

We should plan to add FF10 ESR support in 1Q12 as part of 1.5.x, 1.6.x, 1.7.x and 1.8 dev streams and consider dropping support for 3.6 in 1.9 and 2.0, as the majority of our Dojo enterprise users will follow this path for FF.

are there any known issues, or does this just imply running tests on FF10?

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by cjolif

as of today I'm not aware of any known issue. I guess this is more about running tests for now (and fix issues if they arise).

Ok, though I'm wary of leaving such a ticket open. There typically aren't enough resources to do a full test pass on patch releases. Can we find an owner? Can someone on your team take this on, @cjolif?

I filed tickets for the issues in dojo/ (core) and dijit/. Seems like just problems with the tests themselves. I'd say to close this ticket too unless @cjolif wants to run tests for charting etc.

Adam, Bill

We have tested dojox.mobile against FF10, we will do more tests today on some other dojox packages (charting, gfx, mvc.. maybe others).

That said, now that this ticket is blocked by #14747 and #14748 I'm not sure we can really close it without closing these other ones? :)

This ticket doesn't block anything else. I would still suggest closing. The tickets referenced are problems with the testing framework and fixes would probably not be worth backporting to 1.7.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

OK, let's close this one and we'll open new tickets (in addition to #14747, #14748) for any actual issues.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
