Firebug 1.6a2

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010 has Firebug 1.6a2. This release is very similar to what will be in 1.5b9, but we want to double check our work for that release as it will be close to the end for 1.5.

On Firefox 3.6 we fail 6 tests, none are point to real Firebug problems. Three fail because of Firefox bug 535699, which cause our testing framework to give the error message:

Permission denied for to get property Function.__parent__ from <>.
Line 34

One is caused by bug 536137, which has a fix. The other two are some problem in our testing framework. Needs work.

The 24 bugs fixed in this release, are labeled fixed1.6a2.


Please followup on the newsgroup.

Firebug 1.6a1

Monday, January 4th, 2010 has Firebug 1.6a1, the first release of our new branch, fbug/branches/firebug1.6. No new features yet, this is just our starting point and our way of checking patches that will be ported to Firebug 1.5. (BTW Firebug 1.5b9 should be out soon, and we expect it to be the last beta).

Firebug 1.6 will support Firefox 3.6 and 3.7, at least for now. We might later decide to focus Firebug 1.6 on features available only in Firefox 3.7.  Many of the new features we plan for 1.6 require work in Firefox that probably will not be added to Firefox 3.6.

Users currently on Firebug 1.5 will not be automatically updated to Firebug 1.6.

Chromebug 1.6a1 is also available.
