Change Log:

v1.3.2: Released as of 9th July 2016

  • Added a workaround for a Firefox bug that would cause the addon to make loads of requests to the forum at once, which isn't good for the forum and can cause the browser to hang
  • Fixed some bugs to do with selecting the correct content for notifications.
  • Removed amazon affiliate code injection features
  • Made the addon compatible with upcoming Twitch API changes

 

v1.3.0: Released as of 12th March 2016

  • Added support for the new forum software

 

Spoiler

v1.2.2: Released as of 24th July 2015

Bug FIxes:

  • Fixed an issue where sounds could not be disabled on a per-type basis
  • Fixed an issue where the addon doesn't function correctly when used along side the HTTPS Fixer script
  • Most links to the forum should now load over HTTPS rather than HTTP (the notable exception is notifications at the moment).

 

v1.2.1: Released as of 31st May 2015

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue affecting some users after updating to the previous version where the addon would check for new forum content far less frequently than expected
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing users from changing the frequency that the addon checks for new forum content, as well as some of the other settings
  • Fixed an issue that was generating a large volume of errors when the forum was down
  • Fixed a severe memory leak that occurred when the forum was down
  • The addon's icon and badge colour should now reset to the correct versions straight away after the forum has been down
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the "open in existing LTT tab" feature to sometimes fail silently

v1.2.0.1-signed: Released as of the 28th May 2015
There are no changes in this update except that the addon has now been digitally signed to allow it to support Firefox 41+.
IMPORTANT NOTE: After updating to this version, some users may experience a significant decrease in the frequency that this addon checks for new content on the forum. This issue can be resolved by updating to the next version, v1.2.1
 
v1.2.0: Released as of the 27th May 2015

  • Changed the way that the button works to implement support for Firefox 40+. NOTE: This drops support for all versions of Firefox prior to 36.
  • Changed the button icon to match the forum's new branding.
  • Allowed you to change the update frequency to 10 seconds, down from a cap of 60 seconds before. The default remains unchanged at every 60 seconds.


v1.1.4: Released as of the 8th April 2015

  • Fixed a bug which was preventing marking notifications as read from working
  • Worked around a bug which was generating a large number of errors sometimes (the addon still worked fine)

v1.1.3: Released as of the 18th January 2015

  • Fixed a potential bug that may have been causing notifications to be displayed in error
  • Reduced the width of the auto mark read dropdown menu so that it fits on the screen when using Ubuntu and other operating systems that use a different font
  • When clicked, YouTube notifications now open the correct video
  • Twitch notifications will now function correctly
  • Other minor bug fixes

v1.1.1 & v1.1.2: Released on the 28th December 2014

  • Fixed a minor potential security flaw

v1.1.0: Awaiting review as of 24th December 2014
Added:

  • Support for Channel Superfun and TechQuickie
  • Support for Amazon affiliate code injection (this will make no difference to you, but will allow LinusMediaGroup to get a small amount of the money)
  • A script that will update the number of notifications and PMs shown on the forum whenever it changes (no need to refresh)
  • Support for automatically marking notifications read when you click the first/last/any notification
  • You can now set how often the addon checks for updates to YouTube and Twitch
  • Support for the LTT API (reduces the bandwidth used by the addon)

Changed:

  • Completely new user interface design, credit to @AMorassOfPixelz for the base design
  • 50 notifications can now be viewed without having to leave the addon
  • Improved the debug data, so it's now one click to copy all relevant data

Fixed:

  • YouTube should work (better) now, with the most recent videos actually showing up in the UI
  • Audio priority should now work
  • Work around for a Firefox bug that was causing notifications not to correctly show up
  • A number of other small bugs

Note: This drops support for FF21-25.
The next major version will drop support for all Firefox versions under 36, but I will only release that when it has been in the release channel for a while.
 
v1.0.2: Awaiting review as of 10th May 2014 Released (14th May 2014)

  • Fixed minor, non-user-visible issues that caused the addon to be rejected by mozilla
  • Fixed an issue where YouTube videos would not always show in the correct order
  • Added another check to ensure that LTT is up due to yet another undetected error page

v1.0.1: Awaiting review as of 29th April 2014 review failed due to minor issues.

  • Fixed issues with Twitch:
    • Notifications would be pushed every two minutes - now they are only pushed when they start or stop streaming
    • Turning Twitch off while they are still streaming will now change the icon back to the normal icon
  • Fixed an issue on Firefox 32.0a1 where the font in the UI was incorrectly sized, which created loads of issues

v1.0: Awaiting Review as of 7th April 2014 review cancelled because the version has been superseded by v1.0.1
This is a major release
 
ADDED:

  • YouTube support - notifications, sounds, and information within the addon
  • View your latest notifications and messages within the addon, and click them to go straight to the post or thread
  • Loads and loads and loads of new settings
  • Debugging tools to make identifying issues a bit easier. Hopefully they won't be necessary

CHANGED:

  • Completely new and redesigned User Interface from the ground up
  • Rewritten much of the backend code for performance and reliability
  • Reduced the frequency that twitch is polled from every minute to every two minutes

FIXED:

  • Twitch should actually work this time

v0.2.2beta: 06/02/2014

  • Fixed an issue where new users would not be able to use the addon because settings were not being initialised. This will not affect existing users.

v0.2.1beta: 28/01/2014

  • Removed custom user badges in accordance with forum rules

v0.2.0beta: 27/01/2014
 
FIXED:

  • Users should no longer get notifications that a user is streaming even when they're not due to a Twitch API error
  • Icon text should be white rather than grey or black on firefox 26 and earlier
  • Message icon should now hide if user has no more unread messages

ADDED:

  • Addon icon will now change to twitch icon when user starts streaming
  • Notification sound will play when user starts streaming
  • Twitch desktop notifications will now have an icon
  • Code is injected into ltt, which adds a badge to the developer of the Firefox and Chrome versions of the addon. It will also have more features in future, but they don't work yet

CHANGED:

  • Back end code tweaks

v0.1.1beta: (HOTFIX) 24/01/2014

  • Prevented multiple twitch notifications being displayed for the same stream

v0.1.0beta: 24/01/2014

  • First public release


KEY:
Awaiting review means that the addon has been submitted to Mozilla for full review. Assuming it passes, it should be available within two weeks or so (depending on the number of addons awaiting review). You can manually update by going to the addons page and going to the versions section, although this is not really advisable.
Released means that the version of the addon has been out for at least 48 hours, and most users should have automatically updated.

I kind of feel sorry for you having to read through my mess porting this, haha!

 

Will be interesting to see what you'll add to this version, I want to port over some new functions to the Chrome version if you come up with something awesome!  :ph34r:


Cheers,

Linus

There isn't much new yet, although I intend at some point to add clickable notifications etc. Right now, this twitch thing is really getting on my nerves :( It's nearly working though (famous last words :D))

Haha, don't give up! I'm pretty sure you're better than me at this, but feel free to open up discussions for implementations or new features with moi in case you feel like that'd be helpful.

 

Cheers, and keep up the good work!

Feel free. I will be licensing it under creative commons attribution, and all the source code is available when you get the addon in your firefox profile at
%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<normally called *.default>\extensions\jid1-23jjnBCWPFQ3ag@jetpack.xpi
and you can extract is using 7zip, winzip or any other archive tool, or by renaming it to a .zip and opening it with windows explorer.

It should be out by the end of the weekend unless something goes wrong :D

Changed them again :D I'm going to need all Friday so Sunday should be a good latest date. I just can't tell how long the broken stuff will take to fix unfortunately. It is fairly functional now though so nearly ready.

Ahh... I see what you did there. Just I was expecting a link or something. Probably should clarify that for slow people like me.
