Add-on SDK Version 1.4.2 Released

Following hot on the heels of yesterday’s release of 1.4.1, we identified an issue in the SDK where console logging was not happening correctly. Through discussions with the Add-on Builder team, this issue was identified as a Priority 1 blocker for the Builder team given the recent addition of 1.4 support earlier this week. If you’re curious, the tracking bug for this issue is here:

While this issue primarily affects the Builder, it will also affect any addons packaged using 1.4.0 & 1.4.1 that print debug statements to Firefox’s console window using console.log. Using console.log to print debug statements to the terminal when running an addon using the cfx tool is not affected by this issue.

If you have any questions or issues with this hotfix release, please ask in any of the following areas:
