SDK 1.4 and Addon Builder

Over the last few releases we have typically updated Addon Builder to be able to use the latest version of the SDK within a few days. As you may have noticed, this hasn’t happened yet for the SDK 1.4 release. The Builder project’s product manager Daniel Buchner recently posted about this to the Jetpack google group:

  1. The ‘Builder Helper’ addon needed to be updated, and in fact SDK developer Alexandre Poirot has significantly re-worked and simplified the helper.
  2. Changes in how the SDK packages addons, including a newer simplified internal directory structure.

As Daniel noted in this reply to the above thread, these changes are currently scheduled to be deployed to the Addon Builder this coming Wednesday, January 25th.
