Jetpack 0.6 dishes up two major APIs for Firefox add-on coders
Can we take a look at the specials menu, please?
Mozilla Labs has released a new version of Jetpack, just two months after the last iteration of its Firefox web extensions package landed.
Jetpack 0.6 comes loaded with two major APIs, said Mozilla. One is a secure preferences system and the other allows coders to add and modify menus.
“With these new APIs - and the numerous bug fixes since the last release - we hope to see even more innovative Jetpacks in addition to the hundreds already written,” enthused Mozilla in a blog post penned on Sunday.
In September Mozilla Labs launched a version of Jetpack, dubbed the “bootstrap edition”, just a few days after Google opened up support for extensions in its Chrome browser. That iteration of Jetpack was launched to make the installation process easier for coders. ®
