Adblock Plus 1.3.5 for K-Meleon release candidate available · 2011-03-23 16:34 by Wladimir Palant

The current development build (Adblock Plus for K-Meleon 1.3.5rc.164) is a release candidate. While there are still some unresolved issues, I think that it is more important to bring out Adblock Plus 1.3.5 for K-Meleon when we release the Firefox version. Changes since the previous announcement:

  • Fixed broken toolbar icon when using K-Meleon on Windows XP
  • K-Meleon packages now contain all the locales that are available for Adblock Plus
  • Object tabs are working
  • No longer crashing in K-Meleon 1.7 (however, not fully functional there either)
  • Initial size of “Add filter subscription” dialog is set correctly now
  • Added work-around for K-Meleon bug 1297

Remaining known issues:

  • K-Meleon crashes if the report link is clicked after submitting the report (K-Meleon bug 1299)
  • ABP icon state and list of blockable items do not update correctly if a blank tab is open
  • Size of the “Add filter subscription” dialog changes incorrectly when switching to “Add a different subscription” and back (K-Meleon bug 1298)
  • Blockable items window cannot be closed with hotkeys (Esc or Ctrl+Shift+V)
  • Preferences dialog: “Show in toolbar” option should be hidden

Installation:

  • List of blockable items works correctly now
  • Left and middle mouse button clicks on the icons work
  • Adding subscriptions from the web (via abp: protocol) is possible
  • Dialogs opened by Adblock Plus have more sane sizes, persisting size and position works again as well

  • extensions.adblockplus.sendReport_key preference is considered properly if set

Remaining known issues:

  • ABP icon state and list of blockable items do not update correctly if a blank tab is open
  • “Tabs on Flash and Java” feature doesn’t work

Adblock Plus for K-Meleon development builds are available again · 2011-01-18 17:50 by Wladimir Palant

Adblock Plus for K-Meleon development builds are now available again (for K-Meleon 1.6 only). Unlike for the other development builds, the update process here is manual — both on my side (because a Linux server cannot compile Windows code) and on user’s side (because K-Meleon doesn’t have an extension installation mechanism). So, grab a build, install it by unpacking into the K-Meleon application directory and subscribe to the RSS feed because that’s the only way for you to get notified about important changes.

These development builds are very much work in progress, many parts aren’t working yet. Here are the known issues:

  • List of blockable items doesn’t show anything
  • ABP icon state doesn’t always update properly (particularly on tab changes and when working with multiple windows)
  • Issue reporter gets stuck collecting data
  • About dialog won’t load
  • Window sizes aren’t persisted properly
  • “Tabs on Flash and Java” feature doesn’t work
  • Left-click and middle-click on the icons won’t work
  • Search in Preferences window is only partially working (this is K-Meleon bug 1237)
