Firefox update schedule to shorten from six to five weeks?

Posted on Wednesday, September 21 2011 @ 13:12:00 CEST by


Mozilla is still not content with the current rapid-release schedule of Firefox. A new stable build arrives every six weeks or so, but ExtremeTech writes the developer is looking at outputting a new release every five weeks, or perhaps even quicker.
Christian Legnitto, a project manager at Mozilla (and currently the “release manager” of Firefox), announced the intention to shift to a shorter release cycle on Mozilla’s planning mailing list. In response to one developer citing the success of the six-week release cycle, and asking whether it would be feasible to speed it up even further, Legnitto said: “Yes, I absolutely think in the future we will shorten the cycle,” but recognizing the pains caused by the sped-up process, he added “But it won’t be soon. We have some work to do to make 6 weeks smooth from a process, tool, and product side.”

The shift to the six-week release cycle has actually been less painful than anticipated, but there are still a few aspects of the Firefox ecosystem that have dragged their heels — namely communication from above, localization, and add-on maintenance — but Mozilla intends to tackle these problems in the next few weeks with blog posts and videos.
