That alone would have been cause to celebrate. I figure Jason’s work here shaved a couple of months off of this project.
However, thanks to Olli Pettay, Jonas Sicking, Ben Bucksch, and Dão Gottwald, among others, my patch for adding timeout support to XMLHttpRequests landed on Thursday. DOM Workers support for timeouts will have to wait a bit longer, as I’m still a little busy and workers require special JSAPI incantations which I have not yet mastered. Help wanted!
It feels nice to see both of these happen. I haven’t been able to contribute much code to Mozilla lately, so anytime I can get something meaningful in, it’s a good week.
