New - Notifications in Adblock Plus

Notifications in Adblock Plus
2013-07-23 16:20 by Felix H. Dahlke
quote:
We’re adding a new feature to Adblock Plus: Notifications.
(see AdblockPlus 2.3.1 Release Notes)

The reason is that we sometimes need to notify users about serious issues without requiring them to update Adblock Plus. The worst-case scenario is that some users cannot receive automatic updates and we will use this feature to help the users update Adblock Plus manually. This will hopefully never happen for most users though.

We’re also planning to use it for other things, but sparingly. For example to ask a small set of users to participate in a new survey, should we ever run one again.

For now, this is only implemented in Firefox and Chrome, but we’re planning to bring it to all platforms.

Firefox development build users should have it as of today,

Chrome development build users should get it tomorrow.

We have put up a test message for development build users, to make sure the feature works properly before we roll it out to everyone.

What are development builds?

Development builds represent the most current state of development for Adblock Plus and other extensions hosted on this website.

By installing a development build you can try features that haven't been released in a stable version yet.

I like stuff from Mr. Palant on AMO before I use them, but that's just me.

Like NoScript (Maone), issues get fixed promptly when reported.

It's still Beta software no matter how you gussy up the tree.
I'm reading negative feedback right-out-the-gate.

I don't read RSS and I fail to see what RSS feeds has anything to with this.

It's less than Beta - It's "Development".

However you'd like to word Beta, Beta is Beta. All due, etc.

Yes, I am fully aware.
