[ArsTech] Mozilla outlines 16-week Firefox development cycle

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Although Mozilla is still readying Firefox 4 for its official release, the organization is already laying out its plans for subsequent versions of the open source Web browser. In a roadmap published earlier this year, Mozilla revealed plans to issue three more major releases during 2011--bringing the browser's version number up to seven.

As we discussed in our coverage of the roadmap, Mozilla's plan is ambitious and will require a dramatic overhaul of the Firefox development process. Mozilla—which has historically had lengthy development cycles and protracted beta testing—will have to transition to a faster and less-conservative approach to release management. The organization has authored a document that describes how such a transition could potentially be achieved.

It's starting to get ridiculous even with Google chrome 11. When it starts getting to beta version 16, version 20, version 36 etc. maybe they should stop changing the major version and instead focus on minor version updates.

here's hoping they don't overproduce and start to get sloppy, like what is happening with Ubuntu

Good point.

Currently on Chrome 11.0.696.14. We'll probably see Chrome 12 before Chrome 11.1.
