Hi everyoneNews Update:
Please Read viewtopic.php?f=6&t=382&start=40#p2402 For Important Information
Attaining To Cyberfox 29 +
How are well all doing, Well as most of you know Firefox Australis has started rolling out, So there are going to be allot of unhappy people out there , This probably is leaving you wondering when Cyberfox is going to update to 29 code base so where are here to help answer this question.
As discussed in Firefox Australis what this means for Cyberfox! about what this means for cyberfox and the direction its taking, We mentioned how cyberfox will be changing to its own profile system and that there is going to be an initial delay in the cyberfox 29 release due to the massive changes made.
Below is a video of our current progress with a voice over
We are about 60%+ complete its going to take a little more time but with us starting almost as soon as the beta was out we have reduced the gap and time its going to take by a large percent, We are extremely happy with progress so far we hoped to have had it ready for release when australis went live, But we know how most things we wish happen are not whats actually going to happen life is like that twist and turns along the way.
We are going to release in a few days a 28.0.1 update this will have all the applicable security patches also the profile directory change as to start merging users over to the new system.
We also have been working tirelessly to have profile buddy ready for the profile change at release, So we should have simple mode ready, This will allow the copying of the current default profile based on what browser profiles it detects, More information on it will be provided with the beta release.
We have also had to overhaul our automated build system as the update to australis was not the only thing changed there moz-build was updated with meant we had to rebuild our system, This accounts for so more delay in the release time frame, But has allowed us to completely rebuild and refactor the custom system, We have added cyberfox (x86) portable to the new packaging system so from cyberfox 29+ there will be (x86) version of cyberfox portable.
We have also made changes to the website that are currently live now that if your not running the latest release of firefox\cyberfox when on 8pecxstudios you will get a this message:
We will be most likely adding the same message system to our support forums as well, Now the detection method is not 100% as its not able to detect minor version numbers only major, Example it
will detect 27.0 but not 27.0.1 it will only see 27.0, We hope to improve on this system its only a new addition coupled with the new url system out lined in (Possible confusion on site concerning update) were we have provided more detailed information on the new system.
We also have a small update pending to the cyberfox update manager mainly small bug fixes and little improvements.
We thank everyone for there amazing support and patience's while we get everything ready to be updated and while we work tirelessly to get cyberfox 29 out.
Well time for me to get back to work
