Hoekom is BiDi Mail UI gebou?

I started working on a precursor of this add-on in 2004. It allowed you to switch the dir attribute of the body element of a message, but didn't always work... within a few months I joined forces with Assaf Romano, and together we wrote an extension for both Thunderbird and Seamonkey.

We gradually expanded our feature set - direction autodetection for reading messages, per-paragraph direction in HTML composition etc. Surprisingly, there was never a real distinction between what I was writing "for myself" and what the community found useful :-)

Assaf became more involved with other aspects of the Mozilla project over time, and last year we decided that I'll take over as the single official maintainer.


Wat is volgende vir BiDi Mail UI?

I wish I had the time to devote to doing work on the Mozilla codebase to allow further improvements for this extension's functionality, especially coding hooks for extension to process messages before they are printed.

Wie is eyalroz?

Ph.D. in Theoretical Comp Sci from the Technion, in the field of Property Testing. Now working in the nascent Heterogeneous Computing group of Hua Wei research's Shannon Lab.

A while ago I got hit on the head after an anti-war demo in Tel-Aviv, which is a good excuse to not respond too quickly to user requests :-) Be patient with me, I'll get to your bug as soon as I can spare the time.

I used to be a broke struggling PhD student, and now I make a reasonable salary, so - donations will be pooled and passed onwards to (local) worthy causes, be it other Free-and-Open-Software initiatives, refugee relief (or legal defense), support for political prisons, etc. So, do consider donating if you find my extensions useful.
