2. The development of Mozilla 2 and the effect of Mozilla 2 to the whole Mozilla platform.
3. The architecture of DOM and how the DOM module interacts with the other modules, there could be some discussion about the interaction between dom and the accessibility module.
4. The architecture of plugin. Some background of the plugin API evolution and possible change in the future.
5. The introduction of the tools for finding memory leak and performance tuning.


Comments:

Will you be posting Sun's presentations somewhere? I'm particularly interested in the DTrace bits... I recently set up my Solaris box [again -- long story...], to see how Solaris' tools might help benefit Mozilla development.

The slides will be post later. Actually, there is already a OpenSolaris project about using DTrace in Mozilla devevlopment: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/mozilla-dtrace/
