New Firefox 3.7 branch for the mozmill-test repository

A couple of minutes ago I have branched the mozmill-test repository for our upcoming Firefox 3.7 work. With that addition we can start to update our tests on the default branch to make them compatible with current Developer Preview releases and Minefield builds. That means we have the following correlations now: default => Firefox 3.7 mozilla1.9.2 => Firefox 3.6.x mozilla1.9.1 => Firefox 3.5.x More details about branch handling for our Mozmill tests can be found on MDC. The Mozmill test repository is available under the following two locations:

Testday: Exploratory testing the new Add-ons Manager

As you have probably already read about in a couple of blog post from Jennifer Boriss, Dave Townsend, and Blair McBride, the next major version of Firefox will contain a shiny new Add-ons Manager.

But we also support Open Solaris now and offer a much easier way to setup Mozmill on Windows. There is no dependency for pywin32 anymore. And with all the other fixes we really have a shiny new release. A list of fixes, which haveContinue readingMozmill 1.4.1 released

Phototour in the Napa Valley

During my stay the Silicon Valley I haven’t only had a great day in San Francisco but also spent a day in the famous whine region of California called Napa Valley. Together with my co-worker Marcia we were driven up those 100 miles to mainly take pictures of the blooming mustard. The day was absolutely sunny but sadly we haven’t had luck to see lot of mustard. We were a bit too late or too early. But beside that we got a lot of impressions and enjoyed taking pictures. IContinue readingPhototour in the Napa Valley
