Are there any release notes to the latest version of Moon Tester Tool (1.0.6)?

You can always look to commits log on GitHub. Latest changes were also mentioned here.

PS: I'm aware that some add-ons with old-style or uncommon install.rdf format (like Close tabs to the left or 2 Pane Bookmarks) can't be installed using Moon Tester Tool. The possibility to add support of such extensions is currently under investigation.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

I tried to install Extension Options Menu 2.18 with Moon Tester Tool 1.10, but it refused to install it, returning the same error we were getting with Close Tabs to the Left, that it wasn't compatible with Pale Moon.

For comparison, I installed EOM 3.13 using MTT. Version 3.13 has a FF version number low enough to install in PM 27, but the toolbar button won't appear without modification to the chrome.manifest . MTT did add the necessary line to chrome.manifest (as the button appeared), so that's good news, but it obviously didn't modify the install.rdf because the listing still has the orange button in the Add-ons Manager.

(You may ask, why don't I just use Extension Preferences Menu? The main reason is that my favorite theme has a fully-themed toolbar button it uses for EOM, and it doesn't use it for EPM.)

Hey! I upgraded to MTT 1.1.4, and got a big surprise! I went to AMO, and saw a big green "Add to Pale Moon" button!

JustOff, have you considered including release notes?? :D You should announce when you add awesome features to your wares! :geek:

That was just a small cosmetic update, there is nothing to announce about it actually, but the changelog is always on GitHub.

I mean something that shows up in the Available Updates view of Add-on Manager, like so:

You click on "Show Release Notes", and then you can see the notes before you update (or decide not to update). 8-)

Unfortunately Pale Moon Add-ons Site does not support release notes embedded into Add-ons Manager.

For those curious, the showing of release notes is on the roadmap at some point in the future:

Just have forked your extension as Serpent Tester Tool - it make possible to install Pale Moon exclusive extensions on Basilisk (maybe also XUL Firefox or Waterfox!). To achieve this I do vice versa task of Moon Tester Tool - I change GUID in manifest from Pale Moon to Firefox. Of course, that won't make really incompatible extensions work, but it did the trick for me with, for example, Advanced Night Mode.

Here you can find it: https://github.com/Nebula-Mechanica/serpent-tester-tool
XPI file here: https://github.com/Nebula-Mechanica/ser ... l/releases

You did very cool job, JustOff, I enjoy using your extensions.

You cut me with my own sword, but I still not going to support my add-ons on Basilisk :twisted:
