This extension rocks!

I just stumpled upon Extension Developer’s Extension, and it absolutely rocks! Live HTML and XUL edition, javascript shell, extension builder, and more. It’s a great little toolbox!

Great thanks to Peter Nunn and Alexander Surkov who are both supplying good patches to us!

XForms Preview 2

| | Comments (0)

There you go! We’ve just released preview 2 of the XForms Extension. If you’ve been using preview 1 until now, this is a major step forward. We’ve covered a lot of ground, and it’s a pretty decent implementation of XForms 1.0 now. There are still bits and pieces missing, but we are getting close. Check the status page for feature status.

The extension works with Firefox 1.5 beta 2. Download instructions and release notes can be found on the project page.

XForms Buddy 0.5

XForms Buddy 0.5 is out: I’ve added a load/save instance command (right click on the instance data).

XForms and Firefox 1.5 beta 2

| | Comments (0)

To get XForms working in Firefox 1.5 beta 2, you need a new XPI. Get it here.

XForms 1.0 Second Edition is now public as a Proposed Edited Recommendation.

There’s lots of “bug fixes” in this edition; clarifications, fixing annoyances, errors, etc. Most of it is already implemented in the Mozilla XForms extension.

XForms Status Update

We’re getting ready for our second preview, which will be ready when Firefox 1.5 beta 2 comes out, which is quite soon. It’ll include almost all the fixes that have been made since our last preview, so there’s a lot of improvement!

There will be an official announcement, and then I’ll return with a status update here as well :)

Upgraded Movable Type

I just upgraded to Movable Type v3.2. It seems to work, but please let me know if something’s broken.
