State of the Docs, January 4, 2012

It has been a slow couple of weeks for MDN doc changes, due to the holidays. However, a few things of note have happened.

Web standards docs

Mozilla-specific docs

Eric Shepherd created an article on Updating add-ons for Firefox 10.

Thanks to everyone for their contributions in 2011, and we look forward to more improvements to the documentation on MDN in 2012.

    Hey… lots of pages (I would say all of them) show this error:
    reference to undefined name ‘syntax’ Exception of type ‘MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException’ was thrown.

    This slightly spoils your otherwise awesome work!

      Yeah, that’s a recurring problem we have with loading the syntax highlighting extension on the wiki. Should be fixed (again) soon.

    Is it going to be fixed any time soon? Docs site has been iffy the last several weeks. Is there a mirror somewhere?
