uBlock Origin Update?

Unread post by fatboy » 2022-08-18, 14:51

Good Day folks,

Just the other day I was downloading uBlock Origin for Basilisk and was wondering when it will get an update? I know JustOff is the maintainer for uBlock but got banished to the realms of hell after some questionable behaviour? Can't exactly remember what is was? Anyway, was just curious.
I would prefer using ABL, but as we know, YouTube can bypass it and serve ads.

Thanks,

No, he was the one who decided to take his stuff and leave after a disagreement. The questionable behaviour happened after that decision, and centred around how he tried to transition his extension users off of the add-ons site through a hidden and unadvertised migration through automatic updates. He didn't get "banished to the realms of hell", but of course we were non-plussed about him taking a good chunk of our then still much smaller collection of add-ons and migrating away since it really didn't do anything to help anyone - ultimately that was his call though.

There's been some git commits and bug fixes if you go back to late 2021, and I wrote a short tutorial for anyone wanting to build the latest git version to grab those changes: viewtopic.php?f=46&t=28149

Hi Moonchild,

Thanks for clarifying that. Didn't know he acted in such a way. What a pity.

JustOff also is in Ukraine, and to my knowledge has not been heard from online since late February.
