Australis (for Linux) to land "after Firefox 20"
Months ago, the Mozilla developers announced the upcoming Australis' arrival, theme that is to be implemented as default, while introducing numerous visual improvements and eyecandy elements.
Shortly after, Australis mockups have started to land in the open, allowing users to admire, discus and comment new UI concepts (proposed by the developers).
Weeks ago, the Firefox developers published various implemented-as-real-code Australis UI pieces, development effort started on Windows.
Days ago, Mozilla's Paul Rouget stated that "We're actively working on: Australis theme for windows, new Download panel, a network installer and a new way to customize Firefox' toolbars", furthermore, strengthening the full approach of Australis (in the sense of covering a relevant part of Firefox, as opposed to only tabs, etc).
Being asked by an Ubuntu user, "when Australis will be ready and land on Firefox? I'm using Firefox Beta for Ubuntu (from it's PPA)", the developer responded "after Windows (so after Firefox 20)".
Firefox 20 is scheduled for release on April 2nd 2013 (yet, Firefox 21 Aurora, --probably to contain Australis--, is to be released on February 19th 2013).
