Greasemonkey 0.7 Candidate

Hello all,

Since there were some pretty major problems with the last release that caused significant grief, I've rethought how releases will work. Going forward, we will:
  • Do candidate releases to greasemonkey-dev and greasemonkey-users. Before, we just sent candidates to greasemonkey-dev. If you are interested in cutting edge builds and don't mind getting a little messy in the process, subscribe to one of these lists. This will get more eyes on finding regressions early.

  • Once the candidate is vetted on the mailing lists, we will do a candidate release on this blog.

  • Only once the candidate is vetted on the mailing lists and the blog will we do an autoudpate.
This release is the first to follow the new process. Please add a comment to this post with any bugs you find. If there are serious regressions I will do a new release here before autoupdating.

There are no new features other than bug fixes for the previous release. In particular:
  • Fixed the bug where you can't install scripts if you have never disabled Greasemonkey.
  • Fixed the bug where drag and drop in the manage dialog only works once per view.
  • Fixed the bug where removing a script in the manage dialog also removes the last script.
As always, you can see all recent changes to Greasemonkey on the dev website.

Thanks for your patience!

Greasemonkey 0.6.9: gm_scripts directory bug gone forever?

Download Greasemonkey 0.6.9

Anthony has made a change in this release which will hopefully end the issue which keeps popping up of the gm_scripts directory not existing.

Other interesting bits in this release:

  • You can now reorder the scripts in the manage dialog with drag+drop or the arrow keys
  • You can now use Firebug's console object to debug Greasemonkey if you have Firebug installed.
  • Fix bug where install dialog would pop up when Greasemonkey is disabled
