Ubiquity Update: 0.1.2
We’re pleased to say that the distributed team at Mozilla Labs working on Ubiquity has recently released an update to Ubiquity. If you already have Ubiquity, it will auto-update itself. Otherwise, you can download it here.
What’s In It?
We’ve got an amazing amount of feedback about Ubiquity since it’s launch. One of the main points has been wanting features and bug fixes for the commands included in Ubiquity, as well as more commands. The web moves quickly and Ubiquity has the ability to stream commands: it’s silly that we aren’t using that ability to let development of those built-in commands rage on, without being impeded by the slower Ubiquity release cycle. The largest update in “Raging Stream” is the ability for all of the built-in commands to be streamed in from the HTTPS-secured ubiquity.mozilla.com. Along with that is an experimental way of having all preview and command code combined into one large file.
Also, for those of you who are writing commands, we’ve greatly improved the Ubiquity command editor. For a full list of changes and notes, check out the release notes on the wiki.
Between Ubiquity 0.1.1 and 0.1.2, we are proud to have been joined by many new faces. In particular, two new members now have commit access to Ubiquity. Please welcome Fernando Takai, and Davanum Srinivas! By the quality of code, and quality of their participation in the community they have shown themselves to be stewards and champions for the rest of our contributors.
If you have patches or questions, please don’t hesitate to ping us on the #ubiquity channel on IRC at irc.mozilla.org. The handles of the folk who can review code are now fern, dims, jono, atul, abi, unfocused, and aza.
