Hi all,

The last merge from autoland to mozilla-central before the version bump has
now happened, so the soft freeze for 86 is over, and development for
Firefox 87 is underway.

Hi all,

With Firefox 85 RC shipping soon, we are nearing the end of the Nightly 86 cycle.

In order to avoid invalidating the testing we get out of late Nightly and to ensure that we can roll out Beta 86 to a wider audience with confidence, we'd like to ask that any risky changes be avoided from Thursday January 21 until after the version bump to 87 on January 25.

Some reminders for the soft code freeze period:

- Be ready to back out patches that cause crash spikes, new crashes, severe regressions
- Monitor new regressions and escalate merge blockers
- Support release management by prioritizing fixing of merge blockers

Do Not:
- Land a risky patch or a large patch
- Land new features (that affect the current Nightly version) — be mindful that code behind NIGHTLY_BUILD or RELEASE_OR_BETA ifdefs can lead to unexpected CI results - Flip prefs that enable new Features that were untested in the Nightly cycle - Plan to kick off new experiments that might impact a feature's merge readiness

Please let us know if you have any questions/concerns.
