Checkins of the week

I don't really use this but a lot of people have asked for this feature so here it is. Mozilla Firefox, in nightly builds and eventually in Mozilla Firefox 1.1, will support drag-and-drop reordering of tabs. The patch just landed today so the we, the users of nightly builds, will be seeing this feature tomorrow or the day after.

Another really cool and important checkin is the landing of the groundwork for the new Software Update Service. The new Software Update Service will support binary patching and I think it's based on bsdiff and bspatch. This will allow Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird to be updated with security patches without having to download an entire new version. It will be possible to apply patches. Great work from Ben Goodger, Benjamin Smedberg and Darin Fisher. Screenshot here

Will there be an auto update feature so I don't get calls about what is this little arrow or have to remind people to update?

Karit, yes, updates will be auto downloaded during sessions...

The drag-and-drop bug should have stayed WONTFIX. The extension works great, and this is exactly what extensions were made for.
