I announced and released CCK2 2.1 to my mailing list subscribers last week. A couple bugs were found and fixed, and so I am officially releasing CCK 2.1.1 to the world and making it available as an update to CCK 2.0 users. You can download it here.
This new CCK2 represents a major change over previous versions in that it no longer depends on the distribution/bundles directory when using AutoConfig. It creates its own directory (cck2) that should be preserved across Firefox installs. I made this change in anticipation of Firefox 40 where the distribution/bundles directory will no longer work. For people that were using the distribution/bundles directory to distribute their own add-ons, I’ve enabled the cck2/bundles directory to serve the same purpose. As with the distribution/bundles directory, add-ons built with the SDK and restartless add-ons will not work.
Other changes in this new version include the ability to disable various new Firefox features like Pocket and Social Sharing.
I’ve also made a change to the export function that should make it easier to move CCK2 configs to other machines. If you’ve placed your resources (search plugins, certs, etc.) under your output directory, when you export your config, it will use relative paths. After transferring all the data to the new machine, you can edit the JSON file to change to the new output directory before importing.
As always, the CCK2 Wizard is provided as-is. You can open issues and feature requests, as well as participate in forum discussions at cck2.freshdesk.com, but the only way to guarantee responses is to purchase a CCK2 Support plan.
I really appreciate the support of the folks who have done that.
