Foxmarks 1.0.1

Released 4/26/2007 - Download

Changes in this version:

  • Detect that user's bookmarks have been clobbered (at least 25% fewer than last time) and require confirmation before syncing.
  • On initial merge, combine toolbars even if they have different folder names.
  • Fix sizing issue that caused Setup Wizard to sprout ugly scrollbars.
  • Add pt-PT localization.

Foxmarks 0.90

Released 3/5/2007 - Download

Changes in this version:

  • Don't squash favicons. We still don't synchronize favicons, but at least we now don't remove ones that already exist.

Foxmarks 0.89

Released 1/26/2007 - Download

Changes in this version:

  • Fix for a (potential) bug introduced in 0.86.

Note: This is (again) a release candidate.

Foxmarks 0.88

Released 1/4/2007 - Download

Changes in this version:

  • Fixed a crasher bug that was introduced in 0.86.
  • Added el-GR (Greek) locale.
  • Updated pt-BR (Portuguese) locale.

Note: This is a release candidate.

Foxmarks 0.87

Released 11/22/2006 - Download

Changes in this version:

  • Updates localizations for the following locales: nl-NL, tr-TR, uk-UA, ja, zh-TW, ru-RU. If your locale is not in this list, please continue using the officially released version, 0.84.

Foxmarks 0.86

Released 11/16/2006 - Download

Changes in this version:

  • Substantially revised auto sync detection and timing. To detect the need for auto sync, Foxmarks now watches the datastore for notifications of changes, rather than traversing it looking for changes every minute. This should improve performance for people with large bookmark sets on slower machines.
  • Auto sync now waits for 5 minutes since the last change to the bookmark set before initiating auto sync. This should make auto sync less intrusive for users who are making a collection of changes to their bookmarks.
  • If there are unsynchronized changes detected during shutdown, Foxmarks prompts the user to synchronize prior to shutdown. This "sync on shutdown" behavior can be controlled via new settings on the Foxmarks control panel.
  • Note that this version does not yet have translations other than English, so it will likely not be usable in non-English environments. We'll post a new build with complete localizations as soon as we receive them.
  • Completely rewrote the serializer to make it observe polite time. This should make synchronization less obtrusive for users with large bookmark sets.
  • This is most definitely a beta release. Please let us know if you see any strange behavior.


Foxmarks 0.84

Released 10/25/2006 - Download

Changes in this version:

  • Added two localizations: tr-TR and zh-CN.
  • New logo.
  • This version was released to coincide with Firefox 2's launch.

Foxmarks 0.80

Released 9/14/2006 - Download

Changes in this version:

  • Fixed several bugs in conflict resolution code.
  • Added Ukrainian locale (uk-UA).
  • This version is compatible with Firefox 2.

This is a release candidate for the Firefox Add-ons site.
