In this post I promised a new release of Ubiquity to be compatible with Firefox 3.6. It’s been a while so I thought I should update you on that.

The situation is a little complicated, because there are two “branches” of Ubiquity development: the 0.1 line and the 0.5 line, which differs significantly.

We’ve released an update to the 0.1 line, Ubiquity 0.1.9.1, which works with Firefox 3.6. It can be downloaded from Addons.mozilla.com.

The Ubiquity 0.5 codeline is turning out to be more difficult to update to Firefox 3.6 than we anticipated. (i.e. there are actual incompatibilities that produce parser problems; we can’t just tweak install.rdf and release.) We’re going to have to find some time to do some serious hacking and bug-fixing on it before we can release a compatible 0.5.x version.

Ultimately, I’d prefer to re-merge the codelines and have only a single version; having 2 is confusing and there’s no real reason for it.

But for now, at least you can use Ubiquity 0.1.9.1 on Firefox 3.6.
