Ambassador 1.3.0 Released

Post by Isengrim » 2020-04-27, 22:40

Ambassador 1.3.0 is now up. The Pale Moon add-ons page and the GitHub repository have been updated. Please see the releases page for release notes and download links to the standalone Windows and Linux versions. Note that there is no Mac build for this version yet, but if any Mac users want to contribute a working standalone build I'd be much obliged.

This is a new release with a few new features and several bugfixes.

New Features and Changes
  • Standalone: Changed packaging for archives to use 7z and xz formats on Windows and Linux, respectively.
  • Standalone: Switched application to build in a Comm-style configuration. Build instructions will be updated soon!
  • Standalone: Added ability to open chrome:// and resource:// URLs for viewing source code.
  • Standalone: Updated platform to UXP 4.5.9.
Bugfixes and Cleanup
  • Fixed an issue with certain nicknames breaking the client.
  • Changed the ChatZilla FAQ link to use HTTP since the HTTPS site no longer works.
  • Improved error handling for trying to use a /join command in the *client* tab.
  • Standalone: Fixed a minor issue with opening file:// URLs.
Happy chatting!

Is it possible to make the executables smaller?

the executable is only a few hundred kb ;)

MY question is are you gonna start following the UXP Release Train from now on?
Is it that you have no idea where you are going or what you're supposed to be doing right now?
Or did you just assume when you saw that timer that something in this room is capable of turning it off?

Not without a good bit of work on the platform to make it more modular, which is likely a long-term goal but not a high priority.

As the old adage goes, new versions are released "when they are ready". ;)
