Clippings 1.99.6 Released

This release fixes some bugs present in 1.99.5, which was released on 27 May 2006 (just a week ago!), and introduces integration with Mozilla Thunderbird.

If you already have Clippings 1.x or any previous development snapshot release installed, you must uninstall it first before installing this release.

Download link: http://downloads.mozdev.org/clippings/devel/clippings-1.99.6-en-US.xpi (62 KB; English-US; compatible with Firefox 1.5 - 1.5.0.x and Thunderbird 1.5-1.5.0.x)
All development snapshots to date can be found here: http://downloads.mozdev.org/clippings/devel/

Much effort has been made at finding and fixing bugs; however, this release is still rough around the edges, and ordinary users not comfortable trying out new software should stay with the current stable release, or wait until Clippings 2.0 is out.

What's New
  • Now works with Mozilla Thunderbird! Clippings can be created from both the message view and the message compose windows by dragging selected text into the Clippings icon on the Thunderbird status bar. Clippings can also be inserted into the body of an email message in the message compose window, using the context menu.
  • Bug fix: Clippings Manager item count remains as 1 when all items have been deleted.
  • Bug fix: Imported folders do not show up in Clippings menu.
Compatibility with Firefox 1.0.x Discontinued

Due to problems with getting many of the new features to work with Firefox 1.0.x and Thunderbird 1.0.x, Clippings now requires Firefox 1.5 or newer and Thunderbird 1.5 or newer. Users who have not yet upgraded to the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird should do so.

Known Issues
  • Folders do not appear on Clippings menu after they are created from Clippings Manager unless a new window is opened (regression).

First off, thank you for this wonderful extension. I greatly appreciate it. I've used it religiously since it was recommended to me by a visitor to my site.

Just heads up tough, I "bumped" the version number on this version and it works fine in Bon Echo Alpha 3. I'll let you know if I have any trouble, but it seems to be working swimmingly.

I simply couldn't live without Clippings another day...

Thanks Raven for the heads up - looks like Clippings 2.0 is good to go for the upcoming Firefox 2.0 release!
