Jetpack Project: weekly update for May 15, 2012

Project News

  • We released Add-on SDK 1.7 today. Please see the blog post and release notes for more info.
  • Nicholas Nethercote’s latest blog post mentions some progress on Nightly that will mitigate the problems users could see when using add-ons packed with older versions of the SDK and Firefox 15. Although we’ve seen good progress here, there are still some underlying issues, and we strongly recommend that you re-pack your older add-ons with SDK 1.7.
  • SDK developer Matteo Feretti ( aka ZER0 ) is speaking at JSDay in Verona tomorrow – let’s all wish him luck!

    “Although we’ve seen good progress here, there are still some underlying issues”. Are you referring to anything FF15-specific, or are you just referring to known old problems in old versions of the SDK?

      I’m not referring to anything related to Kyle’s patch, but even before this came up we had some outstanding issues with older version ( and we would really prefer people update their add-ons even if we cannot do it for them ).
