So, Australis theme will be part of Firefox 19. That means we will see the first bits in Nightly 19 on October 9, hopefully...

Australis theme is already part of the current stable Firefox. Not sure if your referring to the new tab shape + styling.

Just coz it got bumped to FF 19 doesn't mean it WILL be a part of it, tab animations were supposed to be part of Firefox 8 just for an example ...

Tab animations could wait imho. A theme is a bigger change, thus they cannot act as they did with tab animations.

The support for SVG glyphs in OpenType fonts is quite cool, and it's the replacement Mozilla came up with for SVG Fonts (where the entire font was specified in an .svg file)

The only reason people wanted SVG fonts was because Acid3 tested for them, and WebKit implemented just enough to pass Acid3 (And then Apple blocked OpenType fonts on iOS for a couple of versions a while ago). SVG Glyphs in an OpenType font can do everything SVG Fonts can do, as well as being able to do everything OpenType fonts can do (apart from hinting)

There are two things that are bugging me and they are related to the download manager. One is a padding issue once a download has been started or the download icon has been clicked and the other is the popup once a download has started. I have 'Show the Downloads window when downloading a file' unchecked and it still pops up. Is there an about:config option to stop this?

Just tried UX just for the heck of it and noticed the Options page? Is that what they really intend to do? Instead of tabs, we have to press back every time we need to go to a different section?

Also, I don't have Australis on my UX or did they remove it for some reason?

That's just a port of old interface to in-content UI and they ensured that the backed works. I remember seeing some mockups of preference page designed like the addon page (with tabs on the left).

Any news on Gecko? Because it doesn't matter how fast IonMonkey can crunch when Gecko can't keep up to render it.

I shared several updates in past that Gecko got support for this and that.

Actually Firefox now ditched the numbering thing of Gecko, After Gecko 2 for Firefox 4, Gecko 5 directly comes with FF5, Gecko 10 with FF10. So now you can say that each version updates brings several Gecko enhancements.

For example, if you are using latest Nightly, it has several patches for Display list based Invalidation mechansim, which significantly makes it faster on "IE Maze Solver", it now behind IE and Chrome from few seconds, next set of patches and we are all set. Like this many other stuff also landed, like DHTML reflow fix etc.
