Jetpack Project: weekly update for March 13th, 2012

Project News

  • I blogged yesterday about SDK compatibility with the Firefox 10 ESR release.
  • Firefox UI designer Stephen Horlander dropped by the weekly meeting this morning and showed us some amazing mockups of the work his team is working on. This aligns with our goal to eliminate add-on bar widgets and place add-on UI up in the Firefox toolbar by default.
  • Holy pull requests! Irakli and Alex are in the middle of creating and reviewing a series of pull requests that will result in a major re-factoring of the SDK code-base using the namespace module.

    the Add-ons in Toolbar Mockup look really great!

    Is there an ETA for Firefox+Add-on-SDK supporting this?
