Weekly Developer Tools Update, Dec 1


There was no update last week, due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the US. There was a meeting, but I wasn’t there… I was there for today’s meeting though, and the full minutes are up.

  • I didn’t see it in the last update, so I’ll mention it here. The Style Editor has landed in Nightly! Great work that Cedric Vivier has been doing over the past few months.
  • Robert Nyman wrote up a giant collection of Firefox tools for web developers.
  • I posted a screencast of the new tools in Firefox Aurora.
  • Firebug 1.9 beta 3 is coming tomorrow. Firebug 1.9 final is looking good for a year-end release.
  • We’ve fixed some issues in the Firefox Aurora tools, so keep an eye on your updates there.
  • Cedric Vivier will be working on adding features to the HTML panel. File bugs if you have requests for the HTML panel!
  • Heather Arthur is going to begin working on pseudo-class locking (making “:hover” stick to look at its styles, for example). Speak up if you’ve got opinions on how this should work.
