Clippings 5.1 beta 2 released!

This is the second beta release of Clippings 5.1, intended for early adopter users who crave the latest and greatest. Users not comfortable trying out pre-release software and tolerating its inevitable bugs should stick with Clippings 5.0 for now.

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

What's New in Beta 2
  • Improvements to compatibility with multi-process browser tabs in Firefox (sometimes referred to as Electrolysis or e10s).  Usage of CPOWs (cross-process object wrappers) have been largely eliminated, improving performance in Firefox
  • Partial fix to the issue in Firefox where placeholder prompts always appeared in a modal dialog, even if the setting to not block browser windows was turned on (issue #57).  This setting will be honored in non-e10s browser windows, but due to technical limitations the setting will be ignored if e10s is turned on

How to Get It

Head over to the Clippings page on the Mozilla Add-ons website, then scroll to the bottom and expand Development Channel.  Click on the yellow "Add to Firefox" button to install it.
