New AUS is live!

As previously announced, Nightly users of Firefox and Fennec were switched to the new update server yesterday. We've been doing manual testing, watching logs, and keeping an eye metrics since then and as far as we can tell everything is functioning as expected and users are being updated. If you are on Nightly and experience any problems updating, please stop by #releng or file a bug.

There's still more work to do on Balrog, but this is a huge step for us, and validates all the work we've already done on it. Expect more posts from myself and others as we continue to make progress.
