Camino 0.8b Branch

We've branched for beta, that means that now we have two parallel development tracks:

  • Trunk (camino trunk/mozilla trunk) - the bleeding edge, changes that will go into Mozila 1.9a and future camino releases
  • Branch (camino 0.8, mozilla 1.7f) - what will be released as Camino 0.8beta/final using Mozilla 1.7f as its basis. Checkins to this branch are much more tightly controlled to prevent regressions.

To pull camino on the branch, check out mozilla/camino.mk on the branch "MOZILLA_1_7_BRANCH" and the scripts will handle the rest.

We don't yet have a tinderbox nor a nightly build for this branch, but bryner is working on getting the machines ready, probably tomorrow or the next day. That means that each day, we'll have two nightly releases: trunk and 0.8. We need to make sure that both get tested to avoid big regressions but the branch is the most important since it's what will be released in the short term.

We're getting close. Hopefully we can have a beta out in the next couple of weeks.
