Project News

  • We released two point releases, 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 to address issues related to deploying SDk 1.4 on the Add-on Builder site.
  • Jorge pointed out an important compatibility issue with SDK 1.3 and the upcoming Firefox 11 release in his compatibility post. We will be re-packing add-ons built with 1.3 and lower prior to the release of Firefox 11, but in the meantime you should base all current and new releases on SDK 1.4.
  • There were a couple of community-developed modules discussed on the google group this week, including madarche’s OrderedMap implementation and Ben Buksch’s collections module. This is exciting to see, particularly because they are now collaborating on a single implementation.
  • Looking forward to participating at FOSDEM this weekend!

    Is there a way to integrate jetpack builder with ant build? I don’t know how to call the scripts.

    After calling /bin/activate.bat, I lost control and cannot call cfx xpi directly. Any clue?

    Currently ( I’m using 1.4 ) it seems that cfx does not work correctly unless you run the activate script first. I agree, this is not ideal especially when integrating the tool with build tools or continuous integration. I posted about this to the google group:
