No updates?

Hmm, my SeaMonkey v2.19 showed no updates in its addon manager?

Ah good. I am not alone. I posted about this in »adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic.···&t=16596 and »adblockplus.org/releases/adblock···#c005000

As of 7/14/2013 morning PDT, their replies said the updates have to be reviewed and can take up to two weeks!

Since the update is minor/small according to its release/change log, I will wait. I am fine with my old ones installed. Who knows, maybe the new updated one has issues.

Make you wonder what Mr. Palant is up to.
Despite all this, mine never auto-updates but then of late, newer is not always better.

Mine updates, but not sure how long after it is released on its web site. I rarely check its web site.

I wish mine did but as I've noted in several threads and am now getting a bit
discouraged with ABP in general - I check the releases or announcements page:
»adblockplus.org/releases/

check your messages

See:

There is a clear warning from Mozilla as you will see.

Adblock Plus 2.4 for Firefox, Adblock Plus 1.6 for Chrome and Opera released
· 2013-10-09 16:52 by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus 2.4 for Firefox
Install Adblock Plus 1.6 for Chrome
Install Adblock Plus 1.6 for Opera(Opera 15 or higher required)

This release improves the first-run page that is common in all three browsers. We redesigned it once again and made sure that new users get a better overview.

Firefox-only changes
• Fixed: Adblock Plus icon wasn't showing up on browser startup for some users.
• Fixed: Redirect blocking wasn't working in current Firefox versions.
• Fixed: Issue reporter fails to process some console errors.
• Fixed: Adblock Plus fails to start up when updating in current Firefox nightly builds (workaround for bug 924340).

Chrome/Opera-only changes
• The number of ads blocked on a page and in total now shows up when in the icon is clicked.

Note: This is the last Adblock Plus for Chrome release where we use Argentinian Spanish when the locale selected in Chrome is "Latin American Spanish." Unfortunately, Chrome doesn't allow supporting the many existing Latin American Spanish dialects properly. However, we've determined that Mexican Spanish will be a better choice for the Latin American region and future releases will use that locale.

Adblock Plus 1.6.2 for Opera released
· 2013-11-26 by Wladimir Palant

quote:
Install Adblock Plus 1.6.2 for Opera (Opera 17 or higher required).
Please note that it might take some time until the new version is reviewed an actually becomes available.

This release fixes an issue with size limitations for data storage in Opera, after a while filter changes would no longer be saved. With this release Adblock Plus for Opera uses the same data storage approach as Adblock Plus for Chrome. Note that this won’t work in Opera 15, a more recent Opera version is required.

There will be no corresponding Adblock Plus for Chrome release, this change is irrelevant for Chrome users.
