FireFox Extension for Cloudy Nights Forums: version 1.0.0 has been released!
The first public version of
cn_ubb_enhance , a free FireFox extension that enhances your Cloudy Nights user experience, is a fact! You can download it here: http://shutterfreak.net/xtra/firefox/cn_ubb_enhance/cnubbenhance-1.0.0.xpi Version 1.0.0 is a complete rewrite since version 0.5 as a 100% native FireFox addon. No more GreaseMonkey meddling and related potential security issues. This version contains the following fixes and changes:
- Support for FireFox 3.6
- Better integration into FireFox (remove GreaseMonkey dependency)
- Image and link popups are native browser popups and provide basic information about the displayed information
- Rewritten About popup is now a native FireFox addon popup
- Added user preferences to toggle certain features
- When preferences have been changed, a popup tells when the changes will take effect
- The image preferences are instantly adjusted thanks to the implementation of event listeners on the images
- TODO: implement the post links and DSO code with event listeners and/or with DHTML features so you no longer need to reload a page when you changed certain preferences (e.g., the show/hide DSO links for Messier, NGC or IC objects).
- Added a menu under the FireFox ‘Tools’ menu (CN Forums Enhanced) providing quick access to the preferences and the about dialog
- Basic localization (l10n) support, although the Cloudy Nights forums are English only. This is a browser-only feature.
