DownThemAll: News

Delays… November 10, 2017

Initially I planned to have a release version of DownThemAll! Lite (aka the WebExtension) ready for launch of Firefox Quantum. Well, Quantum will be released in a few days from now, and DTA Lite is not nearly ready.

There were some bits that turned out to be more fiddly than I anticipated, then some freelancing work (what actually pays my rent) took longer than anticipated, and then some medical stuff (nothing to worry, but still preventing me from spending the time I originally planned for DTA) and other personal stuff… This all completely made me miss my timeline I planned.
Please bear in mind that essentially DTA Lite, even tho it’s only “lite”, will be more or a less a complete rewrite, even though it will reuse a lot of the concepts.

Therefore, looking at my calendar, DTA Lite will take another month at least. I hope I’ll get to a point where I can release a beta version for early adopters/testers in 2-3 weeks and then 1-2 weeks after that a stable full release.
In the mean time, there is still the full DownThemAll! which can be used with at least the pre-Quantium Firefox (such as the ESR)*.

I’d also really like to rant how stupid and limited most of the WebExtensions APIs are, but I feel I ranted too much already.

The manager tab, recently, with some demo downloads I used to test how stuff will look like. The design is still a work in progress.

* (technically, it still even works in Quantum Nightly, with some minor changes and a lot of “convincing”, because, again, mozilla’s reason to disable legacy extensions is not a technical need due to Quantum but entirely a political decision at this point)
