The Rust Programming Language Blog: Announcing Rustup 1.26.0

Mozilla planet - di, 25/04/2023 - 02:00

The rustup working group is happy to announce the release of rustup version 1.26.0. Rustup is the recommended tool to install Rust, a programming language that is empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

If you have a previous version of rustup installed, getting rustup 1.26.0 is as easy as stopping any programs which may be using Rustup (e.g. closing your IDE) and running:

rustup self update

Rustup will also automatically update itself at the end of a normal toolchain update:

rustup update

If you don't have it already, you can get rustup from the appropriate page on our website.

What's new in rustup 1.26.0

This version of Rustup involves a significant number of internal cleanups, both in terms of the Rustup code and its tests. In addition to a lot of work on the codebase itself, due to the length of time since the last release this one has a record number of contributors and we thank you all for your efforts and time.

The headlines for this release are:

  1. Add rust-analyzer as a proxy of rustup. Now you can call rust-analyzer and it will be proxied to the rust-analyzer component for the current toolchain.

  2. Bump the clap dependency from 2.x to 3.x. It's a major version bump, so there are some help text changes, but the command line interface is unchanged.

  3. Remove experimental GPG signature validation and the rustup show keys command. Due to its experimental status, validating the integrity of downloaded binaries did not rely on it, and there was no option to abort the installation if a signature mismatch happened. Multiple problems with its implementation were discovered in the recent months, which led to the decision to remove the experimental code. The team is working on the design of a new signature validation scheme, which will be implemented in the future.

Full details are available in the changelog!

Rustup's documentation is also available in the rustup book.


Thanks again to all the contributors who made rustup 1.26.0 possible!

Amy Keating: Why I am Joining the Mozilla Board

Mozilla Blog - vr, 21/04/2023 - 21:36

The Mozilla Manifesto originally described the Mozilla Project as “a global community of people who believe that openness, innovation, and opportunity are key to the continued health of the internet.” That statement was prescient at the time and remains on point today. The pace of change and explosion of creativity we see around the internet today fuels the ongoing need for prioritization of openness, innovation, and opportunity – and the embracing of community – just as when the Mozilla Project began 25 years ago.

Mozilla’s broad global community is welcoming of those who step away and come back to it, and I appreciate being a part of that living, breathing community. I first joined Mozilla Corporation in 2018 as General Counsel, because I believed in the power of Mozilla’s products and was wowed by the caliber of minds it drew into its orbit. In 2021 I left to join Planet Labs PBC (“Planet”), to help Planet find its path as a public benefit company focused on using space to help life on Earth. And in doing so I have learned firsthand about building and developing public benefit missions, while also learning about community-building from a new lens.

Today I’m returning to Mozilla to participate in a new way. I’m joining the Mozilla Foundation board to contribute to the Mozilla Project as a board member, in service of my belief that technology, society, and the internet itself deserves the kind of thoughtful, passionate, inclusive, and dedicated advocates that Mozilla brings to the table in many forms. And because the concepts of “openness, innovation and opportunity” in the Mozilla Manifesto remain so very important to the issues we see facing technology and the internet today.

We’ve seen these cycles of accelerated progress and innovation before. At each step along the way as a society, these moments of expansion and innovation need people and organizations, like the Mozilla Foundation, to help us collectively take a step back and think about what we are building and what the impact of building it will be. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to come back and contribute to the Mozilla Project again.

Amy Keating Joins the Mozilla Foundation Board of Directors

Mozilla Blog - vr, 21/04/2023 - 21:31

Today, I’m excited to welcome Amy Keating as a new member of the Mozilla Foundation Board of Directors. You can see comments from Amy here.

As Mitchell said when we put out a call for three new board members last month: it’s a critical time for Mozilla to be thinking bigger and being bolder about how we can shape the coming era of the internet. As we do this, we need Board members who bring both vision and practical experience to push us in this direction. Amy brings both of these things. 

Amy is currently the Chief Legal Officer at Planet Labs, a satellite imaging company that is one of the few public benefit corporations that is also publicly traded. Before that, she served as Chief Legal Officer at Mozilla Corporation where she oversaw the Legal, Policy and Security Assurance functions. Amy also served as Vice President, Legal and Deputy General Counsel at Twitter, Inc., which she joined in 2012 as Twitter’s first lawyer focused on litigation. 

Throughout her career, Amy has been a strong advocate for public policy that will ensure the internet remains open and accessible to all. She brings deep expertise on topics like US Section 230 and competition in consumer internet markets. During her tenure at Mozilla, she led Mozilla through Mozilla v. FCC, which sought to overturn the rollback of federal net neutrality protections.

As an executive, Amy has a strong track record balancing mission and values with commercial growth and complex risk. At Planet, she played a key role in bringing Planet to the NYSE as a public benefit corporation. Her work includes helping build governance systems reflective of Planet’s mission of using space to benefit life on Earth. Amy also played a key role in evolving Mozilla’s approach to mission-based business while in her executive role here.

All of this — plus Amy’s deep commitment to and history with Mozilla — will help us as we focus on the next chapter of our work

With Amy’s appointment, we are filling one of three Mozilla Foundation Board seats that we currently have open. As we continue our search, we have a strong focus on diversity and global representation. We’re also seeking Board members with experience: a) running world class advocacy campaigns and b) running complex global organizations. 

Please join me in welcoming Amy Keating to the Mozilla Foundation Board of Directors. You can read more about how Amy wants to help here in her post on ‘Why I’m Joining the Mozilla Board’.

Cameron Kaiser: April patch set for TenFourFox

Mozilla planet - vr, 21/04/2023 - 02:06
As promised, there are new changesets to pick up in the TenFourFox tree. (If you're new to rolling your own TenFourFox build, these instructions still generally apply.) I've tried to limit their scope so that people with a partial build can just pull the changes (git pull) and gmake -f build without having to "clobber" the tree (completely erase and start over). You'll have to do that for the new ESR when that comes out in a couple months, but I'll spare you that today. Most of these patches are security-related, including one that prevents naughty cookies which would affect us as well, though the rest are mostly crash-preventers and would require PowerPC-specific attacks to be exploitable. There is also an update to the ATSUI font blacklist. As always, if you find problematic fonts that need to be suppressed, post them to issue 566 or in the comments, but read this first.

However, there is one feature update in this patchset: a CSS grid whitelist. Firefox 45, which is the heavily patched underpinning of TenFourFox FPR, has a partially working implementation of CSS grid as explained in this MDN article. CSS grid layout is a more flexible and more generalized way of putting elements on a page than the earlier tables method. Go ahead and try to read that article with the current build before you pull the changes and you'll notice that the page has weirdly scrunched up elements (before a script runs and blanks the whole page with an error). After you build with the updates, you'll notice that while the page still doesn't lay out perfectly right, you can now actually read things. That's because there's a whitelist entry now in TenFourFox that allows grid automatically on (a new preference defaults to true which is checked for by new code in the CSS parser, and there is also an entry in the problematic scripts filter to block the script that ends up blanking the page when it bugs out). The other issues on that page are unrelated to CSS grid.

This will change things for people who set the global pref layout.css.grid.enabled to true, which we have never shipped in TenFourFox because of (at times significant) bugs in the implementation. This pref is now true, but unless the URL hostname is in the whitelist, CSS grid will still be disabled dynamically and is never enabled for chrome resources. If you set the global pref to false, however, then CSS grid is disabled everywhere. If you were using this for a particular site that lays out better with grid on, post the URL to issue 659 or in the comments and I'll consider adding it to the default set (or add it yourself in about:config).

The next ESR (Firefox 115) comes out end of June-early July, and we'll do the usual root updates then.

The Rust Programming Language Blog: Announcing Rust 1.69.0

Mozilla planet - do, 20/04/2023 - 02:00

The Rust team is happy to announce a nice version of Rust, 1.69.0. Rust is a programming language empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

If you have a previous version of Rust installed via rustup, you can get 1.69.0 with:

rustup update stable

If you don't have it already, you can get rustup from the appropriate page on our website, and check out the detailed release notes for 1.69.0 on GitHub.

If you'd like to help us out by testing future releases, you might consider updating locally to use the beta channel (rustup default beta) or the nightly channel (rustup default nightly). Please report any bugs you might come across!

What's in 1.69.0 stable

Rust 1.69.0 introduces no major new features. However, it contains many small improvements, including over 3,000 commits from over 500 contributors.

Cargo now suggests to automatically fix some warnings

Rust 1.29.0 added the cargo fix subcommand to automatically fix some simple compiler warnings. Since then, the number of warnings that can be fixed automatically continues to steadily increase. In addition, support for automatically fixing some simple Clippy warnings has also been added.

In order to draw more attention to these increased capabilities, Cargo will now suggest running cargo fix or cargo clippy --fix when it detects warnings that are automatically fixable:

warning: unused import: `std::hash::Hash` --> src/ | 1 | use std::hash::Hash; | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | = note: `#[warn(unused_imports)]` on by default warning: `foo` (bin "foo") generated 1 warning (run `cargo fix --bin "foo"` to apply 1 suggestion)

Note that the full Cargo invocation shown above is only necessary if you want to precisely apply fixes to a single crate. If you want to apply fixes to all the default members of a workspace, then a simple cargo fix (with no additional arguments) will suffice.

Debug information is not included in build scripts by default anymore

To improve compilation speed, Cargo now avoids emitting debug information in build scripts by default. There will be no visible effect when build scripts execute successfully, but backtraces in build scripts will contain less information.

If you want to debug a build script, you can add this snippet to your Cargo.toml to emit debug information again:

[] debug = true [] debug = true Stabilized APIs

These APIs are now stable in const contexts:

Other changes

Check out everything that changed in Rust, Cargo, and Clippy.

Contributors to 1.69.0

Many people came together to create Rust 1.69.0. We couldn't have done it without all of you. Thanks!

Mozilla Thunderbird: Meet The Team: Wolf-Martell Montwe, Android Developer

Mozilla planet - wo, 19/04/2023 - 11:37

Auf Deutsch übersetzen Traduire en français 日本語に翻訳

Welcome to a brand new feature called “Meet The Team!” In this ongoing series of conversations, I introduce you to the people behind the software you use every day. We kicked things off by talking to Thunderbird’s Product Design Manager Alex Castellani. Now let’s meet someone much newer to the team: Wolf-Martell Montwe.

Having recently joined us from Berlin as a full-time Android developer, Wolf brings his passion for building mobile applications to the Thunderbird team. He’ll be helping to develop new features and an updated interface for K-9 Mail as we transform it into Thunderbird for Android. I spoke with him about his first computer and early gaming memories, what he hopes to accomplish for the Thunderbird mobile app, and how our community of contributors can help.

Meet The Team: Alex Castellani, Product Design Manager <figcaption class="wp-element-caption">Catch up on the “Meet The Team” series by reading my conversation with Alex Castellani</figcaption> Wolf’s Technology Origin Story

I love a great origin story, and many people working in technology seem to have one that’s directly tied to their first computer. Wolf is no exception.

“I think I started my computer journey with playing games — the first I remember is Sid Meier’s Pirates!” Wolf remembers. “Back then I had an IBM 386. Super slow, super loud! And I hacked around a lot to get games running too, to free up memory, to free up disk space because this was super limited. I think one partition was maximum 3MB! It was a big achievement if something just was running.”

Wolf’s fascination with games eventually led to some basic programming knowledge and web page development.

“I used to develop web pages, especially for my school to build up like a little forum,” he says. “I fell in love with PHP because it had one of the first editors with code completion, and that was awesome.”

What Attracted Wolf To The Thunderbird Project?

“I’m a longtime Thunderbird user, and I have used K-9 Mail from 2010 on,” Wolf says. “In my last position, my task was to build up open source software. (So we developed the software and then prepared it to be open source, because the code was readable, but people couldn’t contribute.) And over that time I fall in love with developing open source, so I was looking for opportunities to to follow up on that direction. “

The Thunderbird Android Team Just Doubled In Size. Now What?

Believe it or not, for many years K-9 Mail had one full-time developer (in addition to a community of contributors). So, Wolf effectively doubles the size of the core team. The first questions that came to mind: what doors does this open to the future of Thunderbird for Android, and what can Wolf and cketti accomplish during the next few months?

“First, I want to strengthen the technology base and also open it up for using more modern tooling, especially because the whole Android ecosystem is right now under a really drastic change,” Wolf explains. “It could be pretty beneficial for the project since it’s being rebranded, and think it’s good timing to then also adapt new technology and base everything on that.”

Why We’re Rebuilding The Thunderbird Interface From Scratch

(The desktop version of Thunderbird is undergoing a similar transformation, as we slowly rebuild it with more modern tooling while eliminating years of technical debt.)

Wolf continues: “I think that would also open the Android app to be a little bit easier maintain from a UI side, because right now it is hard to achieve.”

It’s certainly easier for our developers — and our global team of community contributors — to improve an application and more easily add new features when the code isn’t fighting against them.

How Can The Community Help?

There’s so much we can do to contribute to open source software besides writing code. So I asked Wolf: what’s the most important thing the K-9 Mail and Thunderbird community can do to help development?

“Constructive feedback on what we’re doing,” Wolf says. “Whether it’s positive or negative, I think that’s important. But please be nice!”

We certainly encourage everyone on Android to try K-9 Mail as we continue its transformation to Thunderbird. When you’re ready to give feedback or suggest ideas, we invite you to join our Thunderbird Android Planning mailing list, which is open to the public.

Talk to Wolf on Mastodon, and follow him on GitHub.

Cameron Kaiser: Power Mac ransomware? Yes, but it's complicated

Mozilla planet - di, 18/04/2023 - 18:33
Wired ran an article today (via Ars Technica) about apparent macOS-compatible builds of LockBit, a prominent encrypting ransomware suite, such as this one for Apple silicon. There have been other experimental ransomware samples that have previously surfaced but this may be the first known example of a prominent operation specifically targeting Macs, and it is almost certainly not the last.

What caught my eye in the article was a report of PowerPC builds. I can't seem to get an alleged sample to analyse (feel free to contact me at ckaiser at floodgap dawt com if you can provide one) but the source for that assertion appears to be this tweet.

Can that file run on a Power Mac? It appears it's indeed a PowerPC binary, but the executable format is ELF and not Mach-O, so the file can only run natively on Linux or another ELF-based operating system, not PowerPC Mac OS X (or, for that matter, Mac OS 9 and earlier). Even if the raw machine code were sprayed into memory for an exploitable Mac application to be tricked into running, ELF implies System V ABI, which is similar but different from the PowerOpen ABI used for PowerPC-compatible versions of Mac OS, and we haven't even started talking about system calls. Rather than a specific build targetting Power Macs, most likely this is evidence that the LockBit builders simply ran every crosscompiler variation they could find on their source code: there are no natively little-endian 32-bit PowerPC CPUs, for example, yet there's a ppcle build visible in the screenshot. Heck, there's even an s390x build. Parents, don't let your mainframes out unsupervised.

This is probably a good time to mention that I've been working on security patches for TenFourFox and a couple minor feature adjustments, so stay tuned. It's been awhile but such are hobbies.

How does AI actually work?

Mozilla Blog - ma, 17/04/2023 - 21:32

Artificial intelligence has entered a new era. From search to education to art, recent advancements in AI promise to shake up the way we work and live.

Yet for some of us, AI poses more questions than answers. How will it affect us? Are there risks? How do we make it trustworthy?

Before we can answer these complex questions, it helps to get the basics down on AI. Read on for a crash course on artificial intelligence.

First, what exactly is AI?

AI is essentially software that can learn patterns from information. Think language, images, audio, online behavior and more. Using patterns from existing and new data, AI makes predictions to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence – like finding products we’re likely to buy or finishing a sentence in an email.

How does it work?

Take a customer service chatbot, for example. After you type a question, the chatbot uses an algorithm – or a set of rules  – to recognize keywords and identify what kind of help you need. The machine learning model, based on the existing and new information it has, then generates an appropriate response. The chatbot improves over time as it interacts with new customers and receives more data. 

“Think about the algorithm as the program that works with the dataset, and the model is the output that makes the prediction,” explained Mozilla researcher Becca Ricks.

Why are chatbots like ChatGPT sounding more… human?

The latest chatbots use a type of machine learning model called a neural network. Inspired by the structure of the human brain, it’s designed to learn increasingly complex patterns to come up with predictions and recommendations. With chatbots, the model learns language from a large amount of existing and new data, making it really good at sounding how a person might talk. 

Can AI get things wrong?

Absolutely. AI models learn from data, which can be incomplete. ChatGPT, for instance, is a language model trained on data on the internet. That’s why it may have trouble solving simple math problems. 

AI can also produce biased outputs. For example, image recognition trained on a set of images featuring mostly light-skinned people may not be able to recognize individuals with darker skin tones. Algorithms and data come from humans, so AI technologies typically follow biases that exist – like ones based on race, gender and age. 

“They might affect whether or not our friends are seeing what we post,” Becca said. “Or, they might affect whether or not we’re getting resources from our local government.” 

How do we make sure we can trust AI?

The first step is learning about it. From there, we can demand transparency and accountability.

“The more that we all know the way AI systems work, the easier it makes for us to imagine what better looks like,” Becca said. “And it makes it easier for us to design alternatives that benefit society and reflect the values of our communities.”

For a deeper dive on AI, the people who are creating it and stories about how it’s affecting communities, check out the latest season of Mozilla’s IRL Podcast. And if you’re a builder looking to create trustworthy AI solutions, you’re encouraged to apply to Mozilla’s Responsible AI Challenge. Applications close on Thursday, April 20.

AI exists in almost everything we use on the internet, like search engines and our social media feeds. But if you want to reduce the amount of personal information you have out on the web, don’t give away your true email and phone number when signing up for the latest AI apps.
Like any other application, an AI app can expose your information to online trackers, spammers and hackers. Firefox Relay offers email and phone number masks so you can sign up for new accounts anonymously.
