Snowl development builds

I’ve created a distribution channel to get Snowl changes out to its testing community faster. I’ll push development snapshots to the channel on a regular basis as significant fixes are committed (or perhaps nightly, if I can automate the process).

Once you install a development build, Firefox will automatically check for newer ones and prompt you to update when it finds one, just as it does for the release builds on AMO.

This is truly the slicing edge. If you use these builds, be prepared for the possibility of regressions and bustage. On the other hand, you’ll also get to test new features earlier, like alta88’s Places integration work.

Install the latest development build, then discuss it and report bugs you find. (If you don’t want to be on the slicing edge, try the latest stabler release instead.)

  1. Hey Myk,

    Glad to see snowl reaching this phase of development, but I have a question: How do you see all your feeds at once in the River view?

    Before with the last release (0.2 I believe) I could see all of my feeds of the day, now I can only see the feeds of the selected source! I can see the benefits of this, but having an all sources item in the list would be very useful. I know you can select multiple sources, but being able to delete a single item to show all would be ideal.

    Otherwise, the addon is great 🙂

  2. Wahooney: yup, that’s a regression from recent changes. You’re right, it should be possible to see all feeds at once. I have filed that as bug 487759.
