Release 1.1.0

Sunday, June 28, 2009 | 22:31

This release contains some improvements for the about dialog, a translation was added for the fr-FR locale and the location for the sqlite database for storing cleanup information has been moved.

I discovered that updating the extension in Firefox is actually an uninstall + install which meant that the sqlite database located in the extensions home directory was recreated each time the extension was updated. In order to survive updates I had to move the database to another location. So if you upgrade from a previous version and you want to keep the cleanup data, your best option is to export the cleanup configuration and do an import after upgrading is completed. Since this change can have some impact for existing users, I changed the version from 1.0.7 to 1.1.0.

The javascript for reading data from the install.rdf only retrieved data for the current active locale. The contributor and translator tags had to be listed in each locale section in order to be displayed by the about dialog. Because this was very inefficient, I added some extra javascript to access the xml directly so the contributor and translator tags now only need to be listed once.

Thanks to the efforts of a couple of guys from babelzilla (Jojaba and Nico@nc), I could add a French (fr-FR) translation. Special thanks goes to Jojaba who was very patient with me since it was a struggle to get unique access keys for the many shortcuts.
