Mozilla Plans Its Most Aggressive Release Schedule For OS

Mozilla has announced that it will be increasing the pace of updates for its brand-new operating system for mobile phones.

Firefox mobile is due to get security updates every six weeks, according to an announcement by Alex Keybl, Mozilla's manager of release management. These updates will be accompanied by significant updates every quarter. 

Mr Keybl said: "Now that we have our v1.0 behind us and we're moving forward with even more partners, we're going to do our best to bring Firefox OS back into our heartbeat and will make quarterly feature releases available to partners along with six-weekly security updates for the previous two feature releases," on the Mozilla blog.

He added that the strategy will be "the most aggressive mobile OS release strategy out there".

Although Firefox-toting handsets have been released in 16 emerging markets, they probably won't reach the UK or US until 2014.
