We want to make a few changes for the 3.6.2 "What's New" page.

-Take out Wordmark and update with Meta font of 3.6.2
-Change header of page to compensate for removal of wordmark.
-Add release notes link for 3.6.2

For the header area, I'm recommending that we replace the Firefox 3.6 wordmark with headline that reads "Welcome to Firefox 3.6.2" (written in Meta, that could be updated easily for future releases), with the current "Thanks for supporting..." copy below as a subhead. The Firefox logo and other elements on the page would remain as is.
Steven, could you take a stab at implementing this? We're not sure how these changes are going to look with the page design, so the sooner we see what it looks like, the more time we have to make changes ;)

Is this the right idea for the header?

Where should the release notes link go, and how should be worded? Perhaps in place of the "More Firefox 3.6 Features" link, or in addition to it?

Perfect, thanks!

If you look at the live What's New page - http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6/whatsnew/ - we have a "See What's New" link down at the bottom. Let's just replace that with a link that reads "Release Notes".

Thanks much-
This has been set up. However, until the product-details library on the stage server is set to have 3.6.2 set as the LATEST_FIREFOX_VERSION, you'll see another variation of this page.

In the mean time, you can preview it our our development server: http://mozilla-com-trunk.silverorange.com/en-US/firefox/3.6.2/whatsnew/

Ping me directly for the t0p s3cr3t password.
Also note that this 3.6.2 whatsnew page is based on a copy of the 3.6 whatsnew page, so it includes the "default", "stumbleupon", "thunderbird", and "reminderfox" random promos. If it should not include these, let me know.

Pascal & Julie, we're setting up a slightly new version of the 3.6.2 What's New page. Can you confirm what the rotation should be in the lower right promo spot? 

On the live http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6/whatsnew/ page it's now just StumbleUpon one and the general AMO one (with Rock Your Firefox coming soon, I think). Is that what you want for 3.6.2, too?
On the live What's New for 3.6 we have StumbleUpon, ReminderFox, Thunderbird and the generic AMO promotion in a randomized rotation.  I'm not informed about adding Rock Your Firefox to this (which is fine by me).

Would be great if we could keep the rotation as is. :)
Note that we will have to add the Rock Your Firefox promo spot to this 3.6.2 whatsnew page in addition to adding it to the 3.6 whatsnew page if it does need to be on both.

Absolutely. Apologies for my confusion in comment #7.

I just confirmed with the AMO team that we want the RYF promo to be added to the rotation on both the 3.6 and 3.6.2 pages (and presumably later ones after that).

So, just to confirm: for the lower right promo spot, we should add in the RYF promo as detailed in bug 549489, but we shouldn't remove any of the existing ones.

Also, the preview on the SO dev server looks great. Thanks!
The Rock Your Firefox promo has been added to this 3.6.2 whatsnew page in trunk in r64103.
Looks good to me!
QA?
Looks fine to me; tested:

* rotation
* all links
* doctype validation
* personas preview
What files should we be pushing, Steven?
Merged everything to stage in r64354. Preview here: https://www.authstage.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6.2/firstrun/
