Clippings 2.99.5 development milestone released

This is the fifth development milestone release leading up to Clippings 3.0, intended for early adopter users who crave the latest and greatest. Users not comfortable trying out pre-release software and tolerating its many bugs should stick with Clippings 2.6 for now.

Clippings 2.99.5 is a feature-complete release. This milestone release will, for the most part, contain all the great new features that you will see in Clippings 3.0.

» Download: Clippings 2.99.5 (146 KB; English (United States); compatible with Firefox 2.0-3.0b2 and Thunderbird 2.0-2.0.0.x)

If you already have a previous release of Clippings installed, you must uninstall it first before installing this release. Because this is a development snapshot, no automatic upgrades to this release will be available to current Clippings users.

What's New
  • Removed support for Firefox 1.5 and Thunderbird 1.5. These versions are obsolete and Mozilla Corp. is no longer supporting them.
  • Added support for Firefox 3.0 beta 2.
  • Clippings' first-run initialization has been improved.
  • Bug fix: No auto reload after migration completed (bug 18197)
  • Bug fix: Common Clippings command should be hidden after migration is completed (bug 18368)
  • Bug fix: "Clippings Error" command on Clippings menu not removed after successful automatic recovery on Thunderbird
Known Issues

Regressions occurring when Clippings is installed on Firefox 3.0 beta 2:
  • In Clippings Manager, it is no longer possible to adjust the width of the tree list.
  • Export as HTML from Clippings Manager doesn't work (bug 18519)
  • Many message boxes from Clippings will have the oddly generic title bar caption "[JavaScript Application]"
Other issues outstanding:
  • Clippings Manager status bar item count isn't updated if Clippings with packaged datasource is installed on to another host application (bug 18552)
  • Shortcut key assignments are lost after migrating to the common data source.
