I guess giving 3 month’s advanced notice wasn’t enough for most add-on authors. I guess this is partly our fault, and we should stress enough how important it is for them to stay up to date with Firefox new, or at least the Add-ons Blog.
On Thursday, the update queue had about 80 add-on updates in line to be reviewed. This is a short as it’s been for a very long time. Today it stands close to 200 updates, and will continue to grow in the following couple of weeks. All authors are now rushing out updates because they just realized Firefox 3.6 is out.
Well, now it’s up to the editor team to catch up. It’ll take a while, I think. Authors that decided to update after the 3.6 release will now have to wait. It’s bad for everyone, and the result of bad communication. That’s something we’ll need to work on.
