RC2 is close to lockdown. This will likely be the final release. 3.0.x will be the next release. The 3.0.x releases will be every 4 to 6 weeks. 3.1 (based on Gecko 1.9.1) is planned for late Fall or early Winter.
The text attributes patch will likely be in 3.1.
The IA2 proxy DLL install and registration could be in 3.0.x or 3.1.
Jamie asked if Mozilla could enhance their support for the "formating" object attribute, i.e. rename it to "display" and instead of just using the value "block", also use the full set of CSS2 values.
Mick will write up a bug for FF. The IA2 issue is that Mick doesn't want formatting:block in IA2, but a "display" attribute with CSS2 values.
Mozilla is implementing IAEditableText on just about everything, e.g. combo box
After this has been discussed in email Mick indicates that this is no longer an issue.
IA2::scrollTo - add an enum value not limited to an edge or corner
IA2_SCROLL_TYPE_ANYWHERE was added. This matches a constant already in use in Mozilla. It was agreed that this new enum should be added and that IA2_SCROLL_TYPE_BUBBLE (scroll object and its container objects) was not needed at this time.
Old NVDA items
Last year NVDA raised some issues which really are larger ATK/IA2 issues. These issues were raised via the Open A11y group in January. These should be reopened and discussed with Willie and Li Yuan at a call convenient to the US, China, and Australia.
Pending further reviews prior to Li Yuan's implementation.
