Project Async & Responsive, issue 4

July 4, 2013 § 4 Comments

It is told that, on the far side of the Sea of Ocean, in a mythical city sitting on a Great Lake, the Fellowship finally met. They saw face-to-face, reviewed each other’s quests, prepared for future adventures and ate perhaps a little too much.

Storage: Support for mozIStorageAsyncConnection (bug 702559) has finally landed, thus bringing type-safe off-main thread storage and adding off-main thread opening of storage. The never-ending work to convert synchronous database clients to asynchronous storage proceeds, including inline autocomplete (bug 791776), async annotations (bug 699844), async bookmarks backups (https://etherpad.mozilla.org/places-backups-changes).
Other: We have improve the startup speed for Session Restore (bug 887780), added a backup feature during upgrade for session data
 (bug 876168) and we are still progressing on cleaning up and making Session Restore asynchronous. Finally, a battle-tested version of the the module loader for workers is now nearly ready to land, along with a refactored version of the core of OS.File (bug 888479).
