The newest official XULRunner has been released. XULRunner matches the Firefox 3.0.11 release. For XULRunner developers, most of the changes in are related to security and stability fixes. SQLite was upgraded to version 3.6.7.

The coolest thing about this XULRunner release is how it was done. Mozilla’s Release Engineering group is now doing official XULRunner releases at the same time as Firefox releases. Previously, someone would manually file a bug, make a patch, spin the builds and push the bits. A big thank you to the release crew for adding this to their release process.

Want to get started building XULRunner applications? We have an article for that. It’s way better than the crappy XML UI framework you’re currently using :)

    Haha :)
    I’m trying to write extension for FF now. It’s the real buggy hell.

    XULRunner 1.9.1 was not released yet, although Firefox 3.5 is already out for some time. Is there an ETA?

    Karby – We should have XULRunner 1.9.1 releases very soon. We were testing the release candidates and they look fine.
