Extension Developers! Yeah, You!
AMO has flipped the switch to support MaxVersion “3.0.*” so make those final version updates now. Firefox 3 RC1 is releasing very, very soon. Yes, “3.0.*” is the final MaxVersion you’ll need for Firefox 3, so don’t delay.
Copied for your reading pleasure:
What this means for you as an add-on author is that after you test with the Firefox 3 release candidates, you can use the Developer Tools section on AMO to bump your version number without having to upload a new version of your add-on.
For completeness, if you want to support Firefox (and none of the alpha’s, betas and pre-releases), here are the recommended version ranges (minVersion – maxVersion) to use:
- Firefox 2: 2.0 – 2.0.0.*
- Firefox 3: 3.0 – 3.0.* (Note: that with Firefox 3, it’s a three part version number)
Yay! for the end of update madness! Now go and do it!
