Mozilla releases Jetpack SDK 0.3
The third milestone release features the inclusion of the first two high-level APIs – the "context-menu" and "self" APIs. The context-menu API allows add-ons to add items to the context menu for web pages, providing users with additional options when they context-click on page elements like links or images. With the self API, developers can grant add-ons access to resources, such as web pages and images, that are included with an add-on package – for example, an add-on that includes an icon to display in the browser's status bar. The developers note that, in addition to a number of bug fixes, the release contain "other enhancements" over the previous milestones.
More details about the release can be found in the release announcement, release notes and Jetpack SDK Documetation. The Jetpack SDK requires Python 2.5 or greater and Firefox 3.6. Development plans for version 0.4 and 0.5 of the Jetpack SDK are currently being discussed on Google Groups.
