Brendan Eich has posted about new roadmaps and how “we propose to develop the front end of Firefox 2 and the platform for Firefox 3 concurrently, with Firefox 2 releasing in less than a year.”
What’s the plan in the draft for Gecko 1.9
- Graphics and layout capabilities: The big move to Cairo, SVG 1.1, Canvas. Good stuff.
- XUL and XBL2: Improvements to the XUL box model should provide a more consistent and flexible layout model for XUL developers, and help to rationalize XUL’s interactions with other content types.
- Web app deployment and capability improvements: Offline operation and client-local storage. Yay!
- Embedding and application deployment
Great stuff :)
