Dear all,

Firefox 29 will be released this week, please find some release notes 
below. As usual, you can check 
https://wiki.mozilla.org/MathML:Home_Page#Last_bugs_fixed and 
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/29#MathML for details.

* Gecko 29:
   - Finish to fix incorrect preferred width of token elements (Mac & 
Windows).
   - Improvements to script position (fix the regression due to 
mmultiscripts refactoring in Firefox 26).
   - Refactoring of the mtable and displaystyle implementations.
   - Fix bugs with table attributes that were sometimes not applied.
   - Remove some private _moz-* attributes that were visible in the DOM 
tree.
   - Implement the "ssty" feature to get correct size of scripts.
   - As discussed earlier on this list, the <mstyle> implementation is 
now restricted to only the most useful attributes.

* Gecko 30:
   - Treat U+2063 and U+2064 as invisible operators
   - Refactoring of the code for stretchy operators to prepare support 
for Open Type MATH fonts.

* Gecko 31:
   - Remove obsolete/non-standard features: font.mathfont-family* 
preferences, ::-moz-math-stretchy pseudo-element, STIX 1.0 beta support.
   - The scale correction is no longer always applied to stretchy 
operators, to follow the TeX / Open Type MATH behavior.
   - Fix some bugs with dotless i's and j's, one-argument mrow and 
invisible operators.
   - lspace/rspace now only have effect on embellished operators inside 
(inferred) mrow.
   - Fix a bug with the columnspacing of rtl mtable.
   - Initial implementation of the MathVariants Table of the Open Type 
MATH table. Try [1] with various fonts: Asana Math, Cambria Math, TeX 
Gyre Pagella Math, TeX Gyre Bonum Math, TeX Gyre Termes Math, Latin 
Modern Math, Lucida Math, Neo Euler, STIX Math (Word version), XITS 
Math. Further improvements to come in later versions [2]
