Clippings 4.1 released!

Clippings 4.1 has been released, and is now available for download from Mozilla Add-ons or the Clippings website.

What's New
  • Integration with the new Firefox Australis user interface, currently in alpha testing
  • The auto-incrementing placeholder reset menu now appears in the Clippings submenu of the browser textbox or message compose context menu, instead of the context menu on the Clippings icon
  • Bug fix: Placeholder prompt does not appear if the placeholder name contains special characters (issue #2)
  • Cosmetic improvements to the Clippings Manager user interface, especially on Mac OS X (issue #1, issue #8)
  • Removed the option to export to Clippings 1.x format (issue #3)
  • New extension icon for the Add-ons Manager listing

How to Get It

Clippings 4.1 is available for download from Mozilla Add-ons, or from the Clippings website.

If you already have an older version of Clippings installed, it will be upgraded for you if automatic extension updates are enabled. Otherwise, open Add-ons Manager, then right-click on the entry for Clippings in the list of installed extensions and choose Find Updates.

Users of Portable Firefox or Portable Thunderbird: Starting with Clippings 4.0/4.0.1, the default location of your clippings data source will be the Portable Firefox or Portable Thunderbird profile folder, which is usually located on your portable media (e.g. USB thumb drive). As a result of this change, the "Portable Edition" of Clippings is not needed anymore, and is no longer available.

New website and project hosting!

The new AE Creations website is now live!

aecreations.sourceforge.net

The recent and unexpected shut down of the Mozdev project hosting service was an opportunity to do a complete website redesign, moving away from the tired old look (which was really just to integrate with and slightly improve upon the default Mozdev website theme) and into something more modern -- with fresh colors, elegant fonts that are readable yet pleasing to the eye, and an improved organization of the website content.

Background

Due to the presumed shut down of Mozdev, the previous project host for the website, source code repository and bug tracking for AE Creations extensions, I've been scrambling to find a new home for them.

I've settled on using GitHub for the source code repository and bug tracking.  Originally I was going to use SourceForge (I already have an existing account for a really old project), but I like GitHub's issue tracking features which organizes issue tickets (e.g. bugs, feature enhancement requests) based on repository; by comparison, SourceForge's issue tracking functionality isn't as good as what I found with GitHub.  Since I can organize the source code for each extension in separate repositories, the bugs would naturally be organized based on extension.  So that made GitHub the best choice.  (I'm still using SourceForge to host the source code for Clippings Editor, a stand-alone utility for Clippings users who want to create and organize clippings for distribution to multiple users.)

What remained is hosting the AE Creations website.  GitHub provides project website hosting with GitHub Pages -- however, it only handles static HTML pages; server-side scripting (e.g. PHP) isn't supported.  This would make maintenance a nightmare when I have to update content that appears in multiple web pages, like page headers, footers and navigation.  But SourceForge supports PHP, handles load balancing, and has some other powerful project web hosting features, described here.  I won't necessarily be using all the available features (like MySQL databases and basic HTTP authentication), but it's great that they are available if and when I need them.

The plain, bare-bones temporary website that previously appeared under the above URL can now be found at aecreations.github.io. This will be the fallback website in case the website on SourceForge ever goes down.

What's next

There are a few minor tweaks I want to make to the website, such as implementing a nicer 16x16 pixel favicon -- but for the most part, the major work on it is done.

My focus will soon turn to updating my extensions to work with the new Australis look that will be coming soon in a future Firefox release.

AE Creations website outage

I have discovered today that the AE Creations website is down.  Given that the Mozdev system admins have all but abandoned maintenance of the web servers, source code repository and the Drupal forums (the latter was shut down a while back), the shutdown of the whole site is all but inevitable.  On that note, Bugzilla is also down, so it looks like I've lost all my outstanding defect tickets and enhancement requests.

The Mozilla Add-ons pages for Clippings, Panic Button, Delicious Post and Send Tab URLs are still available, and of course, the AE Creations forums is your resource for questions or suggestions.

Clippings 4.0.1 released!

Clippings version 4.0.1, the update to the now-infamous version 4.0, is now available for download from Mozilla Add-ons or the Clippings website.

This minor release fixes the problem in version 4.0 where clippings were disappearing when upgrading from Clippings version 3.2 or older.  Users who have not yet upgraded to version 4.0 (before it was withdrawn from the download sites) can now upgrade to version 4.0.1 without fear of having their clippings disappear on them.

What if I have already upgraded to version 4.0?

If you have already upgraded and have noticed that your clippings have disappeared, please click here to see the blog post for instructions on how to get them back.

Clippings 4.0.1 does not introduce anything new except for the fix for the disappearing clippings issue, as described above.  Users who already have version 4.0 can upgrade to version 4.0.1 anyway.

What's new in Clippings 4.0/4.0.1

For readers who missed out on it when version 4.0 was originally released, here is the list of new features and improvements:
  • Customizable data source location.  You can now change the location of the data source using the new, redesigned extension preferences dialog.
  • Data source backup and restore from Clippings Manager
  • Search for clippings in Clippings Manager using the new Find Bar
  • Auto-incrementing placeholders. These are special placeholders that you will be prompted for once to enter a starting numeric value; every time the clipping containing this placeholder is pasted, the placeholder will be automatically substituted with a value that is incremented from the last paste. Auto-incrementing placeholder names are in the format #[variable_name].
  • Tab-modal placeholder prompt dialog for Firefox. With this enhancement, it is possible to interact with other browser tabs in the same window while prompted for a clipping placeholder value
  • Auto spell checking of clipping text (in New Clipping dialog and Clippings Manager)
  • New extension option to enable or disable the shortcut key prefix, CTRL+ALT+V (or Command+Option+V on Mac OS X)
  • Shortcut key help. Press the usual shortcut key prefix, CTRL+ALT+V (or Command+Option+V on Mac OS X), then press F1 to get a list of shortcut keys and the clipping they are assigned to. This list can be printed, or saved to an HTML file.
  • On Firefox, add the Clippings toolbar button to the Add-on Bar, if it is not there already

Things you should know about Clippings 4.0.1
  • If you are a new user of Clippings, the default data source location will be your Firefox or Thunderbird profile folder.  If you're a current user upgrading to version 4.0.1, your data source location will be unchanged.  If you want your clippings to be available in both Firefox and Thunderbird, you will need to change the data source location to a folder accessible to both applications.
  • Changing the data source location will not automatically move your clippings to the new data source.  If you want to move your clippings into the new data source location, you should export your clippings (using Tools → Export in Clippings Manager) before changing the data source location.  After changing the data source location, you can then import your clippings (Tools → Import in Clippings Manager).
  • The status bar in Clippings Manager is now turned off by default, to reduce visual clutter.  This only affects new Clippings users; the status bar will still be visible to existing users who are upgrading from a previous version.  The status bar can be turned on or off anytime by selecting Options from the Tools menu button in Clippings Manager.

How to get it

Clippings 4.0.1 is available for download from Mozilla Add-ons, or from the Clippings website.

If you already have an older version of Clippings installed, it will be upgraded for you if automatic extension updates are enabled. Otherwise, open Extension Manager (Tools → Add-ons), then right-click on the entry for Clippings in the list of installed extensions and choose Find Update.

Users of Portable Firefox or Portable Thunderbird: Starting with Clippings 4.0/4.0.1, the default location of your clippings data source will be the Portable Firefox or Portable Thunderbird profile folder, which is usually located on your portable media (e.g. USB thumb drive).

New Clippings release coming

The fix for the problem where clippings were disappearing after upgrading to version 4.0 requires that a new version of Clippings to be released.  Due to the Mozilla Add-ons review process that is required for all extension releases, I anticipate that it will be approximately 1-2 weeks before Clippings 4.0.1 is available for download.

Due to the serious nature of this issue, version 4.0 of Clippings has been withdrawn.  New users can continue to install version 3.2.  Current users wanting to upgrade will have to wait until version 4.0.1 is released.

What if I have already upgraded?

Disappearing Clippings data after upgrading to version 4.0

There have been a few reports from users that their clippings have disappeared after upgrading to version 4.0.

This problem is under investigation (bug 25520).  In the meantime, if you have experienced this problem, try doing the following:

Update - 3 August 2013 - The following steps should get your clippings back.  Follow them first before trying the other approaches below:
  1. In Firefox, enter "about:config" in the address bar.  In Thunderbird, invoke the preferences dialog (on Windows, Tools → Options; on Mac OS X, Thunderbird → Preferences; on Linux, Edit → Preferences), click Advanced, then click Config Editor.
  2. Search for the pref "extensions.aecreations.clippings.datasource.location"
  3. Change the value of that pref to your user home folder.  For example, this would be C:\Users\username on Windows 7, C:\Documents and Settings\username on Windows XP, ~\username on Linux and Mac OS X.
  4. Exit and restart Firefox or Thunderbird

 The original suggested steps for recovery are below.  Try them if the above steps don't work:
  • Open Clippings Manager, select Tools → Restore and choose the most recent date/time that appears in the menu.
  • If that doesn't work, select Tools → Import, browse to the Clippings backup folder (e.g. for users on Windows 7 this would be C:\Users\username\.clipbak; on Linux and Mac OS X, it would be ~/username/.clipbak), and then choose the most recent backup file

Compatibility issues with extensions on Firefox 20

Firefox version 20 is now in beta, and some initial testing has revealed some issues with Panic Button and Send Tab URLs.  New releases of both extensions will be needed.

Clippings and Delicious Post don't appear to be affected.

Panic Button

On Firefox 20, the Panic Button toolbar button icon is not displayed.

Send Tab URLs

Firefox 20 further optimizes the loading of browser tabs by not loading their content until the user clicks on the tab.  This includes the web page title, which is used by Send Tab URLs to create the tab list.  The problem is that if the browser tab isn't loaded, Send Tab URLs is unable to retrieve the title of the web page in the browser tab; it will appear as "null" in the URL list.
