Firefox 4 Beta 12 Builds Released. Are We There Yet?

Filed under
Moz/FF

The original plan called for seven betas. Then it was extended to nine and we are currently close to Beta 12. It may not be the last beta. Mozilla, are we there yet?

Just when you think Mozilla is serious about releasing any more beta versions of its Firefox browser, you just know the developer will shake on more beta out of its sleeve. Given the bug count and the communication coming out of Mozilla, I was pretty sure not too long ago that Beta 11 would be the final beta before the release of Firefox 4 RC. Now we are seeing the first Beta 12 builds of Firefox 4 and the blocking bug count list was down to 0 at the time of this writing (even if Mozilla’s bug tracking site still lists 48 hard blockers and 86 beta-blocking bugs for the browser.)

Mozilla said that it is, given the small number of bugs in Beta 12, that tit “is plausible” that this will be the final beta.

Fedora Server 22 Benchmarks With XFS & The Linux 4.0 Kernel

Fedora 22 is shaping up quite well across the Fedora Workstation, Server, and Cloud offerings. Out of curiosity, this week I ran some initial comparison tests of Fedora Server 21 vs. Fedora Server 22. Fedora Server 22 notably switches its default file-system over to XFS from EXT4 for new installations. Fedora Server 22 also has the other same updated packages to Fedora 22 like the Linux 4.0.2 kernel and GCC 5.1.1. Read more
