Rocketeers!

We've just spun Add-on SDK 1.1b1, the first beta of the next stable release of the SDK, as a tarball and a ZIP archive.

The packages were built from the 1.1b1 tag and include several bug fixes that have landed since the 1.1a2 build last week.

Will Bamberg also drafted the first version of the release notes for the release.

Try out this build, and let us know how it works for you! You can report any problems you discover via a bug report or by posting to this discussion group. Also check out the release notes, and correct/add notes as appropriate!

Cheers,

I did this:

1. wget
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/labs/jetpack/addon-sdk-1.1b1.tar.gz
2. tar xfz addon-sdk-1.1b1.tar.gz
3. cd addon-sdk-1.1b1
4. source bin/activate
5. cfx testall

Result:

( ...a bunch of stuff, and then: )
4834 of 4834 tests passed.
OK
Total time: 71.700182 seconds
Program terminated successfully.
All tests were successful. Ship it!

I would add that, even though it is tempting to switch to another window
while all the testing madness is going on and ( for example ) check
twitter again, this seems to cause some test failures because the
Firefox window doesn't have focus (?)

cheers, Jeff

Awesome, thanks for testing!

Yes, that's right, some of the tests require a Firefox window they open
to have focus, and they fail if it doesn't. So I usually parallelize
processing of cfx testall with execution of beverage retrieval.

Alternately, run tests in a VM!
