Flickr Search in Firefox

It seems like Flickr searching seems to be “in” for the moment :) Mark Birbeck has just announced a tutorial for how to create an XForm to search in Flickr. I modifed it to work in Firefox ( + official XForms extension 0.3):

XForms Status Update

| | Comments (0)

A brief update on the XForms extension. We recently moved quite a lot of patches to the 1.8.0 branch, to get ready for the next release (version 0.4), for Firefox — this should happen really soon. You can track what we need before the release in bug 326555.

We’ve also created a meta-bug for the next release (bug 326556). Feel free to comment/discuss on what you think the priorities should be on that bug. For the more long term issues, we also have a bug tracking our XForms 1.0 compliance: bug 326372.

For the last release, we have unfortunately had some problems. First, the Linux XPI that we released was not working. If you have problems, please use the one found here. Second, we have problems with, which serves new versions of our XPI to current users. Aparently it does not handle that very well, and serves the Linux XPI to Windows and Mac users too :( (bug 325502).

I have arrived safe and sound in Gijón, gotten established in an appartment and at the office, and is getting back on the XForms track quickly. So for now everything is nice. Especially considering the change in weather. This is what I left in Denmark:

And this is what I arrived at in Spain:

Not too bad :)
