Color Management 0.5 Add-on Released

Sorry for the long delay everyone, I’ve been really busy at my new job. In about a month I plan on changing my website from a personal blog to an open source community, so hopefully I’ll get some volunteers to help out with development.

I’ve been having some problems with the Firefox Add-ons Site, so for now this will only be available here. Some new features are:

  • Changed target application to XUL 1.9.1, so it should work with any XUL 1.9.1 based app, including:
    • Firefox 3.5
    • Thunderbird 3
    • SeaMonkey 2.0
  • Updated for new options in XUL 1.9.1
  • Choose profile dialog now defaults to OS specific color profile folder on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Firefox 3 Launch Party at RIT/Download Day 2008

Tonight I’m hosting a launch party for Firefox 3 since the final version is being released today. Here’s some links for more info:

Today is also Download Day 2008. Mozilla is trying to set a Guiness World Record for the most software downloads in one day, and so far 1,599,887 have already pledged to download Firefox 3 today, Tuesday June 17th, 2008. Pledge on the site, download FF3, and help set the world record!

Planned Upcoming Features for Color Management

Here’s some planned features for future releases of my Color Management extension:

  • Prompt to restart after changing options
  • File selector defaults to OS specific color profile directory
  • Add filter to file selector for color profiles
  • Ability to extract color profiles from images on a webpage and save to local color profile directory

Also, if I’m not mistaken color management in Firefox 3 is only for images with embedded color profiles; if a color profile is referenced but not embedded in an image it’s not used. It would be nice to eventually allow referenced color profiles to be used, and maybe add a download feature for referenced color profiles that aren’t present on the user’s local machine.

If you have any other suggestions please comment below.

Color Management 0.4

Here’s a quick release for my Color Management extension that fixes a bug with the file selector on Linux. I’ll be updating it again later today or tomorrow, but I wanted to get this released so that I can get my extension out of the Firefox add-ons Sandbox before the release of Firefox 3 Final tomorrow. Thanks to Tim Rowley for finding the bug. He’s also the guy who wrote the color management feature for Firefox 3.

Color Management 0.3

Here’s the next version of my Color Management extension. This is just a compatibility update, supporting Firefox 3 RC1. In the next week I plan on releasing another version with some feature enhancements.

I’ve been having trouble uploading the new version to the Firefox Add-ons Site (the connection keeps timing out), so for now it’ll only be available here.
