We just released Jetpack SDK 0.9!
This version continues our drive toward the first beta release of this new SDK for making Firefox add-ons. Our focus for this release was to land important changes to the APIs, particularly those changes that pave the way for the integration of Electrolysis, the project to move add-on code execution to a separate process to improve application responsiveness and make it easier to measure add-on resource consumption.
This version of the SDK contains the following notable changes:
- The Context Menu API has undergone large changes in order to support Electrolysis. Read more in the mailing list posting about the changes and the context-menu module documentation.
- The Private Browsing API has seen significant changes to become Electrolysis-compatible. Learn about the new version of the API from the private-browsing module documentation.
And keep on giving us feedback! It really helps us figure out what we need to do to make building add-ons with the SDK the best possible experience.
