Independent Status Reports (March 14, 2004)
Sunday March 14th, 2004By Brian King
It's nice to see some great projects return after a long time, including Googlebar and Mnenhy. Some of the projects on mozdev.org don't even get off the ground or are abandoned after a short time, but reliables like these show what a valuable resource project hosting is. Look out in this report for the new Help Content Extension project (Firebird Help), perhaps an opportunity for you to integrate Help for your own project into Mozilla installations.
(The mozdev.org website)
A new logos page has been added.
If you are hosting a project on mozdev and have turned off the default branding, please include a logo somewhere on your site with a link to www.mozdev.org. They can also be used by 3rd party sites to link to mozdev.org.
Call for Design Help: mozdev.org is currently in an ongoing process fo re-design. If you have design skills, we are looking for site banner images, logos, icons and so on. There isn't a particular direction to suggest for a logo or site design, but this is a great chance to help us come up with a unique identity. If you want to throw some concepts out there for us we can give you our feedback about what we like best. Contact us for further details or to make proposals.
Googlebar — v0.8
(Bringing Internet Explorer's Google Toolbar to Mozilla/Firefox)
The Googlebar project has released version 0.8 of the Googlebar for Mozilla and Firefox, including lots of new features and bugfixes.
Please see the Release Notes for the complete list of new features and bugfixes.
Firebird Help — v1.0.1
(Brings Mozilla's Help Viewer to Firefox and Thunderbird)
The Help Content Extension (HCE) project is now online.
This project will list additional Help content that you or others may be interested in adding to the Help menu. Currently there is only one Extension listed, a full version of the book Creating Applications With Mozilla, with a glossary, partial index and search function.
Dictionary Search — v0.4
(Looks up or translates words in a Web page using an online dictionary)
Dictionary Search provides a very easy way to lookup or translate a word in a Web page. Dictionary Search 0.4 has been released on 6th of March. Version 0.4 adds the possibility of using up to four different dictionaries. Easy for the polyglots out there.
Mnenhy — v0.5.1
(MailNews-Enhancements and more for Mozilla, Thunderbird and Firefox)
It's been a very long time since the last release, but now Mnenhy's better than ever!
Metagrams Toolbar for Mozilla — v0.8
(A toolbar for word games enthusiasts)
The Metagrams Toolbar for Mozilla (-based browsers) is created by the Words project, which aims to produce browser tools for the competitive player of such word games as Scrabble® and Boggle®. The project initially began as the Gecko/non-Windows response to the Metagrams Toolbar (Win/IE only). v0.8 is nearly at feature parity, implementing nearly all of the IE toolbar's interface. Future versions will implement such remaining missing features as query history, and v1.0 will have complete IE toolbar parity.
cuneAform — v0.2.6
(The HTML editor for everyone...)
Over the last two weeks 4 versions have been realsed and more are expected. The list of cuneAform features is contantly growing so here is a up-to-date feature listing.
Find out more information on the project website!
