Thoughts on Scoping Camino 1.2
Camino 1.2 will be a relatively quick follow-up to Camino 1.1. It will land significant high-value features (some of which are already under development on the trunk) while we wait for Gecko 1.9 to stabilize and branch.
Estimated 2 months of "regular" development between Camino 1.1 final and Camino 1.2 Alpha 1, with subsequent milestones following at approximately one month intervals. Milestones post-Alpha 1 will have development more tightly focused on the Major Features and their regressions/follow-ups.
Camino 1.2 should be released no later than 6 months following Camino 1.1 in order not to delay Camino 2.0.
Major Features/Areas of Focus
- Tab scrolling (plus follow-ups)
- Tab dragging
Keychain rewrite(the major part of this was in 1.1)
- Form fill ? (batwood has some work in progress here)
- Software update
- Tab chain fixes ?
Session saving(the major part of this was in 1.1)
- 1.1 session-saving follow-ups ?
- Undo Close Tab(s)
- nsIFeed conversion
- subscribe using web feedreaders (this code is all in /browser though)
- Sniffing in download code
- Migration/first run experience?
- Gecko chrome strings?
N.B Unless we get a significant uptick in developer strength or developer productivity, all of these features may not make 1.2 if we keep to the plan of a "quick" release.
