Greasemonkey 3.2 Release

The entire list of bugs handled in this release is also available via the 3.2 milestone on GitHub. Note that as always it takes some time for Mozilla to review the new version.  If you're interested in staying on the bleeding edge, try installing the development channel beta release.  If you are using this version and notice problems, it's best to log an issue or let us know at greasemonkey-dev (and be clear that it's with this version).

Feature enhancements:
  • The GM_openInTab() API officially supports an open_in_background argument, and always respects user configuration when not specified. (#2105, #2106, #2107)
  • The GM_xmlhttpRequest() API is now compatible with responseType: 'arraybuffer'. (#2045)
  • Script updates always check the server, never using the browser cache. (#1878)
  • Now @match rules can be customized in script settings. (#1703)
Fixed bugs:
  • More consistently send cookies  with GM_xmlhttpRequest(). (#2181)
  • Calling abort() on the result of GM_xmlhttpRequest() should no longer cause errors. (#2154)
  • Fix GM_registerMenuCommand() for @run-at document-start scripts. (#2139)
  • Restore operation of the GM_info.version property. (#2132)
  • The GM_xmlhttpRequest() API will no longer leak cookies from the regular session, when operating in a Private Browsing session. (#2050)
  • Checking for add-on updates will enforce a server timeout, so it does not potentially hang forever. (#2029)
  • Repair navigation to HTML pages whose URL happens to end in .user.js. (#1998)
