Tonight I “finished” the last set of developer documentation that needed writing for Firefox 2. While there’s still touch-up work to do, and a couple of samples I’d like to write, the documentation has reached the point at which if we shipped Firefox 2 today, I’d be satisfied with the state of the developer documentation for it.
That’s a pretty good place to be as we approach the beta 2 release.
It means I can use the rest of the time leading up to GM to get the finishing touches put on.
One request: if any themers are reading this, I’d sure appreciate your help on improving documentation about updating themes for Firefox 2. I’ve got a document that basically lists the XUL changes, but if someone with more practical experience would like to write up a how-to guide, I’d really appreciate it (as would the rest of the themers out there).
Also, if you see anything else in the Firefox 2 developer docs that you don’t understand, or think could be explained better, freel free to edit — or, if you’re not comfortable doing the edit yourself, drop me an email or even post a comment on my blog here. I’ve got changes in mind, but I’m sure there’s stuff I haven’t thought of yet.
I think we’re in good shape for Firefox 2 to be the best-documented release yet, and I’d like to thank everyone that helped out, including folks that helped with the writing, but especially the coders that helped me figure a few things out, and the folks in IRC that gave me helpful feedback on layout and the like.
