Version 3.2 880.5 KiB Works with Thunderbird 74.0 - 92.0a1

Version 3.2

FiltaQuilla is now compatible with Thunderbird 91. FiltaQuilla had to have some necessary changes for Thunderbird 91, for instance the filterAction "match" function has been replace with "matchAction" and changed parameters.

I will try to keep the latest version on ATN compatible with both Thunderbird 78 and ESR 91 as long as possible.

As I am often asked about added features for filter conditions and actions for my Add-on quickFilters - FiltaQuilla is a better location for extending Filter behavior - specifically adding new types of Actions and Conditions.

Version 3.1 877.0 KiB Works with Thunderbird 74.0 - 87.0

Version 3.1

FiltaQuilla is now compatible with Thunderbird 78. Again, FiltaQuilla had to be largely rewritten for Thunderbird 78, because support for some key technologies was deprecated by Mozilla (bindings was central to making the filter editor work, so there were numerous days of work and guessing necessary to get it back on track. Many thanks to John Bieling from Thunderbird for helping especially with the very problematic Filter Editor.

Going forward most bugfixes / new features will be exclusively available for Thunderbird 78 - but there may be some minor backports for Thunderbird 68. The reason for this is that through architectural changes on the Mozilla code platform the code for Thunderbird 68 and earlier is substantially different.

Version 2.1.2 93.5 KiB Works with Thunderbird 68.0 - 73.*

Going forward most bugfixes / new features will be exclusively available for Thunderbird 78 - some changes may be backported to Thunderbird 68. The reason for this is that through architectural changes on the Mozilla code platform the code for Thunderbird 60 and earlier is substantially different.

  • 2.1.2 fixed a problem in manifest file (stric_max_verseion) that wouldn't allow it to update existing versions.
  • 2.1.1 added strict_max_version to avoid this Add-on being installed in Tb78 - where it would be incompatible
  • Added Icons and fixed look on Address book picker in Filter Editor
  • Corrected a string in german locale from "Nicht ändern" to "Nicht benachrichtigen"
  • [issue 67] Help links in options dialog were misdirected to the wrong page

Version 1.1.0 50.0 KiB Works with SeaMonkey 2.0b1pre - 2.1a1pre, Thunderbird 3.0b3pre - 3.2a1pre

Fixes:

A core bug that prevented custom searches from working in non-filter contexts was fixed in Thunderbird 3.0.5/3.1 beta 2.

A core feature was added, beginning with Thunderbird 3.1 beta 2, that allows IMAP filter actions that need the message body to work. This FiltaQuilla version adds support for that term.

Enabling of filter actions and search terms was divided into separate pages to prevent issues with view overflow.

New features:

Custom action: javascript and javascript (needs body)

Custom action: detach attachments from message (requires Thunderbird 3.1 beta 2 or later)

Custom action: Suffix to subject. Previous action "append to subject", which was misnamed, was renamed to "prepend to subject" though existing defined actions will still work.
