I haven’t been able to post much lately, but here is what has been going on with me and Mozilla stuff lately.
I’m at WWDC now, which is pretty cool. Many of the sessions could be replaced by some simple documentation (RTFM!), which is disappointing (the documentation exists, they just feel the need to read it off for you). The real value of WWDC is being able to talk to Apple engineers and other developers. Also, Apple has labs in which you can test software in different environments with different tools.
Apple is moving to Intel chips, as you probably know. I have attended a couple of sessions on porting to Intel and making the move to universal binaries, and talked to some engineers about it. I think I have a good plan that I don’t want to outline here. So we’re on it, and you’ll have fresh native copies of Firefox and Camino for your shiny new Intel macs when or soon after thay come out. Great news: Apple actually ported Firefox to Intel already, and they are giving us the patches. They used Firefox as an example of how to port to Intel. Lucky me, because now I don’t have to do it.
On the Camino front, we’re working on 0.9 but stalled for the week. Simon and I are at WWDC and Mike is on vacation. Next week we’re going to get a lot done I think and we’ll branch with the next major SeaMonkey/FF branch. I have put a lot of thought into what needs to be done for 0.9 at WWDC, but I haven’t had time to do it. Same old story huh? Yup. If you want it faster fire up Xcode and give us a hand. Its not hard, we’re around to help, and its a great project to work on.
A lot more is going on now with Mac Mozilla products, but I’m out of time. I’ll try to update my blog more.
