I’m pleased to announce the immediate availability of Add-on SDK 1.15! You can download the SDK directly in either zip or tarball format. The main new feature in 1.15 is that xpis files no longer bundle SDK modules. You could get this behaviour previously with SDK 1.14 by using the –strip-sdk argument, but it now ‘just works’. As well, as of this blog post, the AMO Add-on Validator should correctly recognize xpi files packaged with SDK 1.15.
I’d like to apologize to the various people who logged bugs, posted to the list or otherwise had problems over the last few months who were using the SDK and encountered review problems. This release took far too long, but we ran into unexpected problems. Regardless, we’re here now, 1.15 is available and you should no longer have to worry about review issues with xpi files packaged with SDK 1.15.
As always, we’d love to hear from you about your experiences with this release. You can contact us in a variety of ways:
