Colored Diffs Version History

10 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 0.8 56.6 KiB Works with Thunderbird 31.0 - 60.*

* Upgrade add-on for compatibility with Thunderbird 57~60.
* Change license (MPL v2 instead of MPL v1)
* Minor fixes:
* Fix handling for Git send-mail “information” line
* Fix (somewhat) patches with blockquotes
* Fix printing of whitespaces characters

Known issues:
* Blockquotes in patches look weird with a big line spacing length (are they preformatted?)
* Settings menu for choosing colors for diffs is broken on Thunderbird 59+

Version 0.7 58.8 KiB Works with Thunderbird 38.0 - 58.0

Add-on changed maintainer, and so this new version has a number of changes.

Summary for main differences:
- Compatibility with recent Thunderbird versions (38.*, 45.*).
- Changed packaging process. No more omni.jar file.
- Drop support for Seamonkey suite, at least for now. Should be easy to add again if some Seamonkey user can test compatibility.

Minor differences include:

- Fix a couple of bugs.
- Change default color theme.
- Add preferences for symbols for drawing tabs and spaces.
- Some file / code cleanup.
