Subject: [LibX] LibX Prototype

As everyone knows, we are currently developing LibX 2.0, and we would
users to try out a prototype so we can get feedback of the new design.
prototype is only available for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

You can download the latest LibX prototype at these locations:

http://libx.org/releases/ff/libx2-20100716.xpi (Firefox)

http://libx.org/releases/gc/libx2-20100716.crx (Chrome)

Please note that for Firefox, if you currently have a LibX edition
installed, you should either 1) create a new profile for testing the
prototype, or 2) uninstall the LibX edition before installing this

We hope that installation of your LibX edition is intuitive, but here's
brief overview of the installation procedure:

After downloading the LibX plugin for either Chrome or Firefox, you
see a button labeled LibX 2.0 appear to the right of the address bar;
is the LibX button that will replace the LibX toolbar.  There are two
obtain a specific edition for your installation:

1. Manually find your edition: Click the LibX button to open a popup
containing a search field.  Type the name of your library's edition,
select it from the autocompletion dropdown.  Make sure the information
matches your edition, then click "Load this edition".

2. Automatically install your edition using autosensing: From the LibX
Edition Builder, go to either your edition's download page (where you
normally download your edition-specific plugin), or your edition's test
(where you would test changes made from the edition builder).  Click the
LibX button.  The edition should automatically be detected and loaded.

As this is only a prototype, a number of features (such as context menus
proxy support) have not yet been included.  However, everything that has
been implemented so far should be robust.  Please let us know if there
any bugs or oddities--however minor they may be.  And, of course, we'd
to hear your feedback on the new design in general.

Thank you,
