MOZILLA --
Besides planning for the Servo and Browser.html initial release this summer there are a lot of other exciting items on the roadmap for developers working on Mozilla's Servo next-generation engine written in Rust.

Among the hopes for Servo in 2016 are more performance improvements, continue advancing the browser front-end (such as the current browser.html effort), fill in remaining subsystem implementations, bringing the Windows port up to scratch, moving WebRender into production quality, and begin shipping Rust/Servo components gradually within the Gecko engine. Among the performance items on the agenda for Servo this year is CSS support on the GPU, SIMD layouts, DOM wrapper fusion, and more.

More details on the Servo 2016 plans can be found via the recently updated Servo road-map.

There are also a number of Servo goals for this quarter via this Etherpad. The goal remains for an initial tech demo of the new Servo+Browser.html stack in June, improving Browser.html, improving performance for theit target web sites, and June is also their hope when to first ship Rust code inside a released Firefox.

More details on the latest Servo developments can be found via the Servo Blog.
