Serious amounts of progress on the extension manager rewrite work this week

  • Personas and basic plugin and search engine supported added
  • Silent background updating implemented
  • Updated the API docs to be accurate
  • Filed bugs on all known remaining issues
  • Worked out a rough schedule for trunk landing
  • Submitted the main part of the backend and API to Rob Strong for code review
  • Blogged about how this impacts extension developers

Next:
