Announcing Add-on SDK 1.0b5

The Jetpack team is happy to announce the release of Add-on SDK, version 1.0b5. This version is the last beta version before the 1.0 release of Mozilla’s downloadable software development kit for building Firefox add-ons. This version includes new APIs, some enhancements, and a great deal of bug fixes and stability improvements. Notable are:

  • New Hotkeys API to let you easily create new keyboard shortcuts.
  • New APIs for communicating with Content Scripts
  • New Window-specific widget to change the widget content on a per-window basis
