I trust that the extra step of having to find the correct edition after installation will not be needed when this is the real thing?

 Subject: [LibX] LibX Prototype

As everyone knows, we are currently developing LibX 2.0, and we would like users to try out a prototype so we can get feedback of the new design.  This 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 prototype. 

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

After downloading the LibX plugin for either Chrome or Firefox, you should see a button labeled LibX 2.0 appear to the right of the address bar; this is the LibX button that will replace the LibX toolbar.  There are two ways 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, then select it from the autocompletion dropdown.  Make sure the information shown 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 would normally download your edition-specific plugin), or your edition's test page (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 and proxy support) have not yet been included.  However, everything that has been implemented so far should be robust.  Please let us know if there are any bugs or oddities--however minor they may be.  And, of course, we'd like to hear your feedback on the new design in general. 

Thank you, 

Brian
