These Weeks In Servo 71

In the last two weeks, we landed 173 PRs in the Servo organization’s repositories.

We have gotten great feedback and many new contributors from the release of initial Servo Nightly builds. Hopefully we can continue that as we launch Windows builds this week!

In addition to the list of CSS properties that Servo supports, we now also automatically generate a list of DOM APIs that are implemented.

Planning and Status

Our overall roadmap is available online and now includes the initial Q3 plans. From now on, we plan to include the quarterly plan with a high-level breakdown in the roadmap page.
