Jetpack Project: weekly update for October 09, 2012

Project News

  • Mozilla Labs just pushed out this awesome ‘about:profile‘ add-on that shows an interesting break-down of your web rowsing history – made with the SDK of course!
  • SDK developer Matteo Ferretti has been working on some new modules that are ready for people to test out – ‘Geolocation‘ is self-explanatory and ‘Doorhanger‘ implements a simple api to do in-browser UI notifications on both mobile and desktop. If you use these modules and run into issues, please file them in each modules’ respective Github page. Remember: there are lots of other modules you can use with the SDK listed on this github page.
