Where did "New WebExtension APIs" go?


(Mortenkjems) #1

Where can I follow the planned APIs for WebExtensions? It used to be here:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/Projects#New_WebExtension_APIs

But now the roadmap is gone. Did it move somewhere else?

I am eagerly awaiting the toolbar API.

Toolbar API priority dropped to P3, presumably after a triage meeting earlier this year.

https://wiki.mozilla.org/WebExtensions/Triage

So that’s not super-hopeful.

Yes. I follow the toolbar bug.

But where do I follow the panned work / roadmap for extension APIs that used to be here:
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/Projects#New_WebExtension_APIs

?

That is the actual question.

Where can we see what is planned for the upcoming versions?


(jscher2000) #4

I didn’t find that, either, just this: https://wiki.mozilla.org/WebExtensions#API_support_status

Shortly after each new Beta version there is a blog article about new API introduced in that Beta.
See the list here:
