Mozilla 1.0 Release Parties Update (Celebrations to mark the release of 1.0)
by David Boswell

Everyone is probably aware of the different parties that are being planned to celebrate Mozilla's 1.0 release, but I figured it couldn't hurt to post a few links to some of that information here.

There is a flyer with information about the main party in San Francisco at the DNA Lounge. There is also a party locator for people looking for an event to go to that's closer to home.

There is also a information about a New York 1.0 party up on the Meetzilla site. The meetzilla mailing list is also a good place to post questions, thoughts or suggestions about these parties.


CaScadeS Update (A stylesheet editor for Composer)
by Daniel Glazman

Here's the latest on the CaScadeS project:

  • started Box model tab; this includes Size, Positioning, Margins and Paddings, Display, Visibility, Float and Clear. All the properties are settable and the dialog is functional but the specified values are not yet retrieved and put back into the dialog when you edit an existing rule
  • v0.1.3 with Box model tab available


Mycroft Update (Adding search engines to the search tab of the Sidebar)
by Ricky Iseli

Here's the latest on the Mycroft project:


  • Some plugins have been submitted. All plugins which have been submitted are online. If you submitted one but you can't find it, please resend it.
  • The homepage now has an indicator about the number of plugins and their overall quality. Note that right now there's still a lot of red, meaning that there is still quite some work to be done.


  • Find contributors. Azrael told he will be available in one week.
  • Find maintainers (country/language based, category based). Andrea from the localization projects suggested to ask the localization staffs on the newsgroup.
  • Check all the plugins and fix them if they are broken (still 60% of all plugins have not been tested yet, and lots of the tested ones need to get fixed).
  • Get in touch with all creators of the plugins to have their own plugins checked now and then and update them.
  • Create an interactive interface for directly submitting the plugins, see mozdev bug 174.


  • A number of already existing search plugins don't work any more. Checking all the plugins and correcting them is a lot of work. So if you want to see things moving, please get in touch with me and we'll find something you can do. there are some very easy tasks anyone can do, without any technical knowledge.
