Announcing Jetpack 0.7

smartell

We are happy to announce the release of Jetpack 0.7. Jetpack is a Mozilla Labs project which makes it possible for anyone who knows standard web skills (HTML, Javascript, CSS) to make Firefox add-ons.

Jetpack 0.7 is mainly a stability release with a new API thrown in: a unified first-run experience. Notable improvements include: debugging your Jetpack-enabled add-on can once again be done with Firebug; status bar widgets now look better; and the settings feature has a number of tweaks and fixes. With these bug fixes and improvements we hope to see even more innovative Jetpacks in addition to the hundreds already written.

First Run

When users install a jetpack authors can now specify a greeting page tailored to their jetpack. For example, as an author you can guide the user on how to use your jetpack, link to the jetpack’s homepage, or otherwise provide a wealth of rich information. The page can be defined as either HTML or a remote URL.

var manifest = {  
  firstRunPage: "http://example.com/myJetpack"  
};
