The Jetpack team is pleased to announce the release of Add-on SDK version 1.5! This version of the SDK has two major new features as well as many smaller ones and some important bug fixes.
The two most important new features of this release are:
- Mobile Support! – Developers can now start developing add-ons for the mobile version of Firefox. For the initial release of mobile compatibility we have the page-mod API working which will allow developers to create modifications to web content within their add-on. This is quite useful for creating mobile versions of website that do not have a good mobile support. This support for mobile Firefox is only for the new Native Android versions of Firefox (at time of this post, Aurora and Nightly). Primers on getting started developing add-ons for mobile Firefox can be found here and here.
For more new features and known issues in Add-on SDK 1.5, please see the Release Notes!
As always, we’d love to hear from you about your experiences with this release. You can contact us in a variety of ways:
