Desktop product

The plan is to continue updating the desktop version of Nightingale with features as add-ons and core patches.

Currently we handle 3 separated branch :

  • nightingale-1.12 (branch we worked on for 1.12.1)
  • sb-trunk-oldxul (previously matched Songbird trunk) ← Nightingale 1.12.*
  • master-xul-9.0.1 (where we are porting Nightingale to XULRunner 9.0.1)

Nightlies are built from sb-trunk-oldxul.
