Bookmark Holder / News: Recent posts

Firefox 3 is out. Firefox extension needs updating.

Now that Firefox 3 has hit the streets I have been able to test Bookmark Holder's Firefox extension properly.

There are several changes needed to make the extension work correctly under Firefox 3 so I need to get the XUL developer hat back on.

I will post an update to the Bookmark Holder system when it becomes available.

0.3.3 Released

This version does not introduce any code changes.
So if you already have Bookmark Holder installed there is no reason to upgrade at this point.

I have introduced a new installation script that should automate the installation of the Bookmark Holder system.

Please provide feedback on any issues discovered with this installation script as I have limited testing facilities to make sure the script works for all implementations of Apache, Perl etc.... read more

New installation script added to CVS

Have got a working Bash script for the installation of the Bookmark Holder. This script reads variables from a separate configuration file to keep the variables in one place.

The script also attempts to read the configuration files for the Apache server and fills in needed configuration from this. This feature needs some testing on different versions of the apache server to make sure it accounts for different formats.... read more

Whoops - Kommander missing script files

Discovered 2 missing files from the Kommander script directory. To get the Kommander script working correctly download the prefs.kmdr and the bmh-frontend.js files from the kq-kommander directory on the CVS repository and place them into same directory as the bmh-frontend.kmdr script.

Still getting to grips with the CVS on SourceForge, that is my excuse and I am sticking to it :)
