What’s up with Ubiquity 0.2?

Ubiquity 0.2 is on the table for release in the very near term future. We’re talking weeks away. But, what is it? We sat down with Atul Varma, the lead developer of Ubiquity (among other things), to talk about the major changes underway.


What’s up with Ubiquity 0.2?

How To Help

The main way to help is by joining in the process of getting Ubiquity 0.1.3 out the door. Features are frozen but there are still some bugs left to quash. The full list is here.

There’s lots of things you can do to help:

If you don’t know how to code

Get the latest Ubiquity 0.1.3 release candidate to verify some of the bugs and help figure out under what conditions they occur. We could also use some people to just download the release candidate and bang on it, to find any bugs lurking in the shadows; if you find one, please feel free to file a ticket for it.

If you know how to code, feel free to assign a bug to yourself and submit a patch that fixes it. Join us on #ubiquity on irc.mozilla.org if you have any questions or want to discuss solutions with our core developers.

As soon as these are finished, we should be able to get 0.1.3 out the door, which will drastically improve the speed of Ubiquity and make it a lot prettier.

Long time fan/reader, first time contributor.

Aza, I absolutely love Ubiquity. I think it’s brilliant, and definitely the next step in internet-user-custom-interface-api-fun.

But, please Mozilla-almighty, can someone fix that annoying window lag issue?! http://labs.toolness.com/trac/ticket/377

Starting Firefox or opening a new window with Ubiquity enabled takes 4+ seconds. This is really *really* annoying.



Aza Raskin

Hi Dylan, thanks for contributing and the kind words. As you wished, we’ve fixed ticket #377, and new windows should open fast once again with the latest release candidate. Please give it a whirl, and let us know if the problem still exists.


Aza, there are some bugs filed on Bugzilla against Ubiquity which don’t get any attention. Could you please make sure that they are synced with the trac system or just remove the possibility to file bugs against Ubiquity on Bugzilla? Thanks.



Aza Raskin

@Henrik We’ll look into that. Thanks!


Hey, I’m a big fan. I was just wondering if you have plans to implement a way to sync Ubiquity commands between computers (perhaps Weave). Consistency is important with language interfaces and subscribing and/or copying commands from computer to computer is tedious. I love your work. Let me know if you are hiring any UX people.

Thanks,
Dan


@Fitech: Absolutely! Weave is an amazingly strong platform to build on top of — and as syncing Ubiq commands is as simple as syncing a couple of URLs (or even bookmarks) — we’ll get that for free. Expect more on Weave soon.

We are certainly hiring. Shoot me an email with your CV (aza at mozilla).


hi

good luck

i have just recently downloaded ubiquity… I think this is a great concept… I was just wondering if u could implement this feature into the desktop.

so while typing up a word document u can hit “Ctrl + space” and type in a command.

I think that ubiquity would be a lot more useful if it could be used without opening up firefox.

Say you just log onto your computer… why cant u do a ubiquity command to instantly find a map without first opening up firefox???



Philip Larsson

@Mitch: I’ve heard murmurs of such a thing and I also believe that there are many people who would be excited about a desktop version. Then again I’ve also heard murmurs of “prioritizing the most fundamental”, which I am inclined to agree with. I suppose it’s a matter of not having enough coding developers on the team. Unfortunately I am handicapped in that way, I know absolutely nothing about coding, even though I would like to help.

I just hope that things work out, because Ubiquity is a wonderful project.


nice.nice


cool. thank you

This is the perfect blog for anyone who wants to know about this topic. You know so much it s almost hard to argue with you (not that I really want . haha). You definitely put a new spin on a topic that has been written over the years. Great stuff, just great!


I thought it was going to be a boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that the most useful


Let me start by saying beautiful message. Not sure if this has been discussed about, but when using Chrome I can never get the entire site to load without refreshing many times. May be my computer. Thank you.


Resources like the one you mentioned here will be very useful to me! I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that the most useful.


Hrmm that s weird, my comment ate. However, I would say it is good to know that someone else also mentioned this as I have trouble finding the same information elsewhere. This was the first place that gave me the answer. Thank you.


I must admit that this is one great insight. Surely gives a company the opportunity to get on the ground floor and really take part in creating something special and tailored to their needs.


Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a very good platform you are using. I m currently using WordPress for some of my sites but looking to change one of them similar to yours as a test platform. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?


With the whole thing that seems to be building within this subject matter, all your viewpoints are generally somewhat refreshing. Even so, I appologize, but I can not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to everybody that your opinions are generally not completely justified and in actuality you are generally your self not really wholly confident of the argument. In any event I did appreciate examining it.


I see you put a lot of work in this site! Keep writing!


An fascinating dialogue is worth comment. I feel that you must write extra on this topic, it won t be a taboo subject but usually people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers


Super blog post, I count on updates by you.


The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and skin the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.


This is the perfect blog for anyone who wants to know about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want. HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

Great post! I?m just starting out in community management marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case


Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it is nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.
