I wanted to let you know that tomorrow's nightly build of Holly will be the last to receive updates. This also means that there will be no further security updates to the channel, and that staying on the channel past Friday, March 14 is not advised.

Soon after, the Holly builds will be removed from the FTP servers. Thank you to those who contributed many hours of testing on Holly.

Thanks,
Jared

Australis won't hit ESR until October.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

the merges just happened today. Firefox 28 will be 'Release' tomorrow, usualy anywhere from 12PM to 3PM DST.

Aurora and Beta builds will not go public for 4-7 days after tomorrow if history shows us anything, in that final QA/Testing and patches added/backed out before going public. Australis will be moving in and once its on the Channel then, would I expect Holly to be turned off. So its very possible that Holly builds will continue for another week to 10 days, after which time I suspect it will be gone.

EDIT: Of course, beware that there are folks that always jump the gun and announce its 'OUT', and provide a link to the download. But... those builds may not be final for reasons stated above; patches being added and/or backed out and final QA testing.

So please spare me the old' Your wrong, they are out...' routine.
