Microsummary Manager 0.5 Alpha

Microsummary Manager 0.5 Alpha is a preview release of the next version which includes numerous new features and moves all key features to a new XPCOM component for increased performance and easier interaction with other extensions. For extension authors interested in utilizing this component, the IDL is included in this release (more details to come later once the interface is stable).
New user features/fixes:

  • Last selected generator is persisted across sessions.
  • Performance loading and displaying large numbers of generators massively improved.
  • Generators installed globally are now managed.
  • Generators in subdirectories of the profile and global generator stores are now managed.

Generator author features:

  • Authors can now include metadata to be displayed in the manager UI. Anything included in the first comment block will be parsed for data including author name, author’s website, description and instructions for use of the generator. Metadata may be formatted in either of the forms below

JavaDoc style (example):

@author John Doe
@url http://www.example.com
@description Extracts handy information from foo.com's front page.
@usage Bookmark any foo.com/bar/quux page.

The first letter may be capitalized and a colon after the attributes is optional. Each attribute should only be on one line and within the first comment node of the document.
