The call has been made to delay the release of RTSE until January 1st, 2006. There is one big thing that we feel we need to have done before release, and it just isn’t ready yet. We want to deliver a high quality product, so we’ll take our time and not rush it out the door.
What does this mean for you? Well, it means you will have to wait about a week and a half more than before, but you’ll get a better extension for it. This feature is a first install wizard to help everyone get it setup the way they want it from the get-go. While you can change settings at anytime, most people will probably want to set it and forget it. It was Brandon’s idea to begin with, but everyone likes it, so we are going with it.
With the extra time added now, Mike is going to work on the help file for the extension as well, so the user can always look up how to do something within Firefox. I’m not sure how many people plan on using this, but it seems like a good idea too. There shouldn’t be anymore delays for the release of 1.0 after this one.
