Clippings 2 improvements

A minor release of Clippings 2 is in the works, mainly to coincide with Firefox 2. In addition to compatibility with this new version of Firefox, there are a few items that will be addressed:
  • Infinite recursion if moving or copying a folder to its subfolder (bug 14647)
  • Using Drag 'n Drop to Move an Item Into a Collapsed Folder Doesn't Work (bug 14650)
  • Clippings data appended to exported RDF file (bug 14518)
I am also pursuing the following improvements:
  • Improve the folder picker drop-down in the New Clipping and New Folder dialogs
  • Drag 'n drop from any external application into Clippings Manager to create a new clipping (currently, you can drag 'n drop into the Clippings status bar icon in Firefox or Thunderbird)
I've received some ideas and RFE's from users. These will be considered for a future release:
  • Clippings toolbar button in the main Firefox browser window
  • A Clippings toolbar with buttons that lets you paste clipping items with just one click
Major stability improvements to the back end are also being planned. This has a high risk of breaking Clippings Manager, so this is definitely being deferred until later.

Feedback and ideas welcome in the Clippings mailing list:
