Vimperator 3.6: A christmas present

posted Dec 24, 2012, 4:32 AM by Martin Stubenschrott
Hello all,

as some of you may know, Vimperator has had problems running at all on very new Firefox versions (17.0+) since they removed a technology called E4X which we heavily depend on.

Fortunately our great Japanese hacking crew around rincaisui managed to replace it and I have just merged the changes. Thanks a lot for your great work!

It seems to work fine, so I thought I'd release Vimperator 3.6 today as a nice christmas present for you to try out! :)

Changelog is quite short this time:

2012-12-24: A christmas present
    * version 3.6
    * Replace E4X, as it's been removed from Firefox 18+
    * Show confirmation prompt again when opening more than 20 URLs or issuing
      'delbmarks!' or 'set! all&' commands
    * Fix search result highlighting for duplicate or overlapping search terms

Find it as usual at ( will take a while for it to be approved). Feedback is welcome of course!

Have a nice christmas and happy new year.
