OpenDownload² Version History

11 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 4.1.2 45.9 KiB Works with Firefox 14.0 - 56.*, SeaMonkey 2.11 - 2.51

Fixed Pale Moon support after Pale Moon 27 decided that the old Gecko numbering scheme is OK to be dropped. Meh.

Version 4.1.1 41.1 KiB Works with Firefox 14.0 - 51.*, SeaMonkey 2.11 - 2.41

Bumped Pale Moon compatibility.

Version 4.1.0 41.6 KiB Works with Firefox 14.0 - 44.*, SeaMonkey 2.11 - 2.41

  1. Added an option for not deleting finished executable files. Add the boolean extensions.openDownload2.deleteFinished to your about:config and set it to true if you want OpenDownload² to behave.
  2. Code cleanup.

Version 4.0.1 41.2 KiB Works with Firefox 14.0 - 41.*, SeaMonkey 2.11 - 2.36.*

* Updated ru-RU locale.
* The .idl file for the listener typelib was missing for some time. Fixed.
* Added Electrolysis compatibility.
* Pale Moon which has been forked from Firefox lately is supposedly supported properly now (thanks, Square Fractal).
* OpenDownload² has finally got a new (but similarly looking) Python-powered website. Enjoy.

Version 41.0 KiB Works with Firefox 14.0 - 39.*, SeaMonkey 2.11 - 2.27.*

  • I removed support for Gecko versions prior than 14.0. As OpenDownload² has been "feature-complete" for a while now, older versions won't need any further updates just to use the "Run" button anyway. (Given that Firefox 14.0 shouldn't be widely spread anymore; even most Linux distributions should already have a newer version.) This change allowed me to finally drop a lot of old, badly implemented code which I subsequently did. Yay!
  • Under certain circumstances the cleanup routine could throw exceptions where it didn't necessarily have to. Fixed.
  • Wrapped the language variables into objects.
  • Support for recent SeaMonkey versions adequately fixed (thanks, mike).
  • OpenDownload² had the habit to download everything twice. Accidentally fixed it while tracking down a Pale Moon issue.
  • Added locale(s): ru-RU (thanks, Iain Roberts!).

Version 43.1 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 31.*, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.25.*

* I missed quite some things on Gecko 26+. Fixed, sorry. This is what 3.5.0 already should have been. (Thanks, Tobi.)
* added locale: zh-TW by Chris Chan
* using osfile.jsm for guessing the temporary directory now

Version 41.7 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 27.*, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.23.*

Fixed Gecko 26+ compatibility (using the new download manager interface).

Random note: I had to rewrite large code parts again just to restore compatibility with the new API which completely dropped the "old" download queue just for the sake of it. This could or could not have broken compatibility with different platforms than MS Windows. Please report any occurring issues on mozillaZine. Thank you!

Version 41.2 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 25.*, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.22.*

Hopefully fixed missing "Run" buttons on weird occasions (partially reverted some v3.4.2 changes, sorry for the inconveniences).

Version 41.4 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 24.*, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.21.*

  1. OpenDownload² is now licensed under the 2-clause BSD license.
  2. the "Run" button is not added if the file is a ZIP file or a similar "pseudo-executable" file (there's the "Open with default application" radio button instead)
  3. OpenDownload² has an icon now. Please worship it.

Version 31.7 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 22.*, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.20.*

* v3.4.0 code changes broke error handling; fixed by replacing "alert()" by logging to the console (thanks to roman200).
* partially reverted code changes in 3.4.0 (broke the actual launching of files on *ix systems)

Version 31.5 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 22.*, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.20

* fixed quite a bunch of compatibility warnings (rewrote large code parts for that - mostly internal changes)
* removed "old" fallback launching code (declared insecure)
