[LibX] Firefox 4 and LibX

As we are a big Microsoft campus, do you still have plan to improve the toolbar for IE?  It still works fine with XP, but not with Windows 7.

I think both proxy and context menu support will be finished by next week.  Of the items mentioned above, object caching will probably be the most time consuming, and may take the remainder of January to complete.  Preparing the updates from 1.5 to 2.0 should only take a couple days.  While we have no specific days set for these tasks, ideally, LibX 2.0 should be released early in February.

Thanks, Brian.  I assumed that would be the case.  I'm looking forward to the new toolbar.

Yes, development for LibX 2.0 is still underway.  We are pushing for it to be released this February.

Since the last LibX 2.0 announcement, we have migrated libapps and preferences to the new LibX 2.0 framework.  We have been putting a lot of focus on libapps, including preference management for each libapp/module, and libapp localizations.  A significant amount of time was spent getting libapps to work with Google Chrome's API, but they are fully functional at this point.

We still need to complete the following, and we anticipate they will be relatively smaller tasks:
- full proxy support with a cleaner notification interface
- context menu support for Google Chrome
- testing the update code to ensure a smooth transition from LibX 1.5 to 2.0
- other internal improvements (such as object caching)

We will support LibX 2.0 for Firefox 3.0 and beyond; LibX 1.5 will be replaced entirely.

LibX isn't compatible with the beta Firefox 4.  Are there still plans to change the LibX interface?
