Can We Ship Yet? Firefox 4 Bug Countdown

Filed under
Moz/FF

I can’t quite remember that we have been so excited about any other bug list ever. Mozilla is getting very creative in keeping the focus on eliminating every single hard- blocking bug from the Firefox 4 code and has, to our knowledge, posted the first-ever bug countdown for a significant public software. Can we ship yet?

‘No’ is the answer at the time of this writing. The count stands at 14, down from 15 earlier in the day and the same as yesterday. We have somewhat lost track of the actual bug count, as the bug trend chart indicates 18 hard- blocking bugs and beta bugs and 115 soft-blockers. Mozilla’s Asa Dotzler tweeted earlier today that only 7 bugs with “unwritten patches” are left. There is a notable push at Mozilla to get Firefox 4 out the door, but there seems to be no clear indication when that will be.

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
