Shield Study: launch target May 14 21 28 Shield-Utils v5 has been delayed again which has pushed out the original launch date Even though we’re delayed, we’re still on track. Final QA will happen once Shield-Utils are complete. Our survey is moved into Survey Monkey and it’s ready for Shield.
Launch target June 5, 7am PST Our Outreachy intern, Shruti, started Monday and she’s currently ramping up.
There will be no Shield study; the team determined it was too risky, performance-wise. Future plans: John Gruen will develop a proposal for implementing a PIP player in browser.
Experiment Definition document complete. This is essentially a future plan document for Notes and John will meet w/Alex Davis regarding plan for Notes, ideally next week. Risk: Engineering contractor’s final week is next week. Hoping to get a build into the Google Play store next week; this is a preliminary build only Dot release for web extension likely next week; 2-3 bug fixes. Dependent on SV smoke test. Target: publish release before All Hands. Release will likely be pushed out to July 10, so it doesn’t conflict with the release of 61.
@fzzzy has made excellent progress on the Android app. The beginnings of mobile flows are sketched out; will reuse much from desktop design. FxA/Send issues will be filed next week. Emily, the engineering intern starts 5/21.
