When can we expect greasemonkey update? In the month, 3 months, the
year, never?

Update for what? If there's no new features and no active bugs, then of
course there's no new update.

So, when can we expect options:
- enable/disable all marked scripts
- autoupdate scripts (like in Stylish)
- in scripts manager: showing the version of script and perhaps
remembering/showing the last date of the script update
- remembering by gresemonkey from what address script was install
- add labels like in gmail for sorting scripts, for example: referring
to the same web side ( I have a lot of scripts and every time when I
manualy update some off them I have once again to change their
position so that they are well ordered and it is more easily to find
them later)
- when You use right mouse button separate showing globally scripts
(like in Stylish)

I know that I am importunate but I would like greasemonkey to be
improved more quickly.

Best regard,
Goodglory (this is my true translated on English name)

P.S. sorry for my English.

Whenever somebody implements all those features. You're welcome to! =)

What about the new @imports / @require stuff? I think that's already
been merged into the trunk but there hasn't been any movement on Trac
in the last month... what's the status on that?

I don't see anything in the commit log suggesting that it's been merged.

Ah yes, apparently it's still in the ga-imports branch. Either way,
what's going on with that?

I think we're just waiting for the seal of approval from aaron, I meant
to chase up on this but its fallen off my radar recently. Hopefully
aaron reads this thread (though he's currently on holiday according to
his blog).
Just for the record, we're also waiting for approval of johan's header
introspection patch.

Gareth.

Oh, we were that close to goal? I guess I'll have another peek at it too. :-)

True; I haven't wanted to push the issue, hoping to have come up with
some neat hack to craft a getter style API instead of GM_getHeaders()
by the time Aaron's back, but I don't seem to. That diff (including
your bugfix) is here:

http://greasemonkey.devjavu.com/changeset?old_path=%2Ftrunk%2Fsrc%2F&old=486&new_path=%2Fbranches%2Fjhs-headers%2F&new=491

If you have come up with a patch set you are happy with for
ga-imports, it might be time for a similar url for peer review?

Hello,

Any news for Firefox 3 (Minefield) compatibility? I can't install/add/
edit scripts, but GM appears to be working..

Sorry for charging in on this, but the greasespot.com blog seems to be
dead :C

Nice day,
Pas

The greasemonkey website is now back up. Must have been a temporary
Blogger glitch.

As for the original question, it's clear I need to loosen my grip on
Greasemonkey. I don't have the time to review every patch, and
blocking on me stifled all that creativity we had going for a little
while.

For now, Gareth, go ahead and merge your @import branch into trunk and
make a test build from trunk for us to play with. Once we work out all
the bugs, we can do a new release with that plus FF3 support.

After that, I want to start relying on you all more to review changes.
Since it is a small group of us that work on GM, we can probably just
do something simple, like:

* Send out a patch/branch
* If somebody else reviews it and thinks it looks good, and nobody
else thinks it looks bad, then submit

We'll see how that goes. My hope is that a core group of developers
evolves to maintain Greasemonkey and I can fade more and more into the
background.

Certain scripts aren't working on GM with Firefox 3. The error console
has many entries like this:
Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Security Manager vetoed
action" nsresult: "0x80570027 (NS_ERROR_XPC_SECURITY_MANAGER_VETO)"
location: "JS frame ::
file:///C:/Users/User/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/e01lw6y5.default/extensions/%7Be4a8a97b-f2ed-450b-b12d-ee082ba24781%7D/components/greasemonkey.js
:: totalFrames :: line 1360" data: no]

This would be a definite thing to fix in a new release. I'm gonna die
and write extensions to do what these scripts do if this isn't fixed
before the Firefox 3 release.

Can you give an example of a script that fails this way?

The Homestarrunner All-in-One Script (http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php/
User:Phlip/Greasemonkey) fails the way I described above. I believe it
could be that the script tries to connect to hrwiki.org for the
subtitles.

I looked into this and it looks like a bug in FF. I created a bug over
there and will wait to see what they think:
