The secure update feature is ready for POs to use and test.
The update.rdf files are generated when a file is released. POs have the
option when they release files of adding the updateInfo URL as well (new
feature for Firefox 3). For secure updates to work with Firefox 3 you also
need to make sure you verify the file hash.
I've begun playing with the secure update system just recently, trying to
test automatic updating inside of Firefox 3 (beta 5), but although I seem to
have followed the directions, Firefox keeps saying there is no update
available for my test extension.
I installed the following extension into Firefox (depends upon the PyXPCOM
then updated the extension through mozdev CVS, released version 0.3 through
the mozdev file management system and verified the hash:
The update.rdf seems to show the 0.3 version:
I can install the "pyshell_0.3.xpi" extension manually info Firefox, but
when asking Firefox to check for updates (from the 0.2 version), it states
there are no updates found.
Any ideas why this would be happening?
