Firebug 1.5a21

Ok finally we are back on track: getfirebug.com has firebug 1.5x.0a21. The hangup was a cluster of issues around running our FBTests. This release is tested on Firefox 3.5.2 against https://getfirebug.com/tests/content rather than an internal Javascript server.  We need this to test on Firefox 3.6, but it’s also more like real web testing, and its easier to share the test suite.

Other big items:

  • Rob Campbell’s “Computed” style side panel replace the awkward option-based modal Style panel
  • Mike Radcliffe’s Alternative Inspect (more about that another time).
  • Jan ‘Honza’ Odvarko, reimplemented the black/whitelist storage to see if we can make activation more reliable.
  • Early prototypes for CSS Selector search
  • Hans Hillen: a11y support for panel search in CSS, DOM and script panels
  • New locales: fa-IR, uk-UA (Ukrainian), hy-AM (Armenian), pt-PT Portuguese (Portugal),  sl-SI Slovenian
  • Update locales cs-CZ, ja-JP, it-IT Italian
  • Add option  javascript.options.strict.debug false, to support bugzilla 508562
