    xulrunner is a real "pig" to build.... 3rd try within the build machine.

    I hope its a default Firefox also.... "hunt down all bugs" and contribute to upstream !

    Yup from fta:s ppa.... but we need many testers and this is the key issue.
    "bang" it in in slangaseks head... sorry.. (with all respect)


    Just a joke to wait for Debian.... better to test it ourself and contribute
    to upstream.

    It has to pass the review in the NEW queue first.

    1/ xul src approved in NEW => done
    2/ xul debs built => done
    3/ xul debs approved in NEW
    4/ ff src approved in NEW => done
    5/ ff debs built (needs 3)
    6/ ff debs approved in NEW (needs 5)

    We need 3->5->6, so please be patient until Monday.
    In the meantime, my PPA has it, as usual.

    I have no idea who develops/maintain these functions at Gnome...

    INFO

    shiretoko aka firefox 3.1 (and xulrunner-1.9.1) preview packages in jaunty/universe

    on friday, the great fta uploaded xulrunner-1.9.1 and firefox-3.1 to the ubuntu universe archive (jaunty). It took the weekend to get archive admin attention, but now it seems like it will show up on your mirror quite soon (hugs to all involved here).

    Similar to what we did for firefox 3.0 in gutsy, we allow you to install this package next to your “production” firefox 3.0 install. This is done, by creating a copy of your existing firefox-3.0 profile the first time you start firefox-3.1. So don’t be scared to test this, just because you fear to bust your profile. Once 3.1 is final we will present you with a choice again where you can decide which profile to use in future.

    A few more words on bugs:
    If you have pending firefox-3.0 bugs that you feel would be important to get fixed for 3.1, please add the firefox-3.1 target to your bug and state which package version you are using.

    From now on we will update the firefox-3.1 and xulrunner-1.9.1 package quite frequently, so if you file bugs, remember to check if they still apply if you receive an update.

    Also to make bug triaging more easily, I would like to remind everyone that mozilla packages have a normalized bug description format ... which will allow us to swiftly forward your bugs to upstream on your behalf.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks Ubuntu-Mozilla team, asac and the great fta...
