New Stuff At Mozdev.org

Friday September 29th, 2000

A couple of interesting things at Mozdev.org. First, Pete Collins has written an "Hello World" package example to help people with the new packaging structure. It also includes a note from Dave Hyatt on the state of the packaging system.

Nightly builds of the ThemeBuilder (Chameleon) and Aphrodite. You can find links to the nightly .xpi files (you need to install them from within Mozilla) for Chameleon on its installation page, and for Aphrodite on its installation page. Pete is working to get the .xpi nightlies behaving properly in the new packaging system. I was told that he is hoping to get them functional by the end of the week.

Also, Forumzilla now has a page at mozdev.org. Forumzilla is a great app -- check it out if you get a chance.


#8 twice the chrome

I think that's because chromes are present both .JAR and in separate files. So you're effectively downloading twice the chrome with nightlies.

Look at the installer build (it has all that test crap stripped): it's around 6-7 megs.
