The Jetpack team is pleased to announce the release of Add-on SDK 1.1. This version is the first update since the 1.0 release of Mozilla’s downloadable software development kit for easily building Firefox add-ons. This release mostly contains stability work and bug fixes. Beyond the stability work the 1.1 release also contains:
- Better transition/porting of modules that use “Components” to help developers porting traditional XUL/XPCOM add-ons to the Add-on SDK.
- Context-menu module now supports adding images to your context menus
- Made –strip-xpi the default to reduce the size of your add-on
For more information on these and other new features, please see the Release Notes.
This is the first release that puts the Add-on SDK on a train model release schedule that mirrors Firefox’s. We will be releasing a new version of the Add-on SDK about two weeks before each new release of Firefox.
As always, we’d love to hear from you about your experiences with the release! You can contact us in a variety of ways:
