Bloglines Toolkit 1.5.1

About a week ago, I pushed a new version of the Bloglines Toolkit to the site. This version, 1.5.1, does not change anything function-wise, but it does unify the toolkit into a single package containing multiple localizations. Okay, multiple might be a bit much. It has the English version and the Portuguese version. But it’s a single package that should handle both languages. If you are running version 1.5.0, and check for updates, you may have already received this version. If you haven’t, you may or may not want to upgrade to it. Except for the new packaging, there really isn’t a reason to do so.

The really cool thing that this does is that it opens the way for more localizations. If you hadn’t noticed, Mark recently announced multiple language support for Bloglines (and this is really multiple language support, with more than two!). Now, it should be pretty easy for someone to create even more translations for the toolkit, so that not only your Bloglines interface is in your local language, but the toolkit will be as well. Anyone who is interested in localizing the toolkit for a language, let me know and I’ll get you started on the process.

  1. Hi Randy –

    This is actually a feature that will be present in an upcoming release of the extension, though perhaps not exactly as you intend. I can’t say more than that right now, because it’s actually still in development, so I don’t know exactly how it will work – but in essence, the notification of new items and the ability to view your blogs will be separate and distinct functions.

  2. I love the Bloglines extension you have developed; I use it every day. Thank you! But I have a feature request.

    Here’s some background about how I use Bloglines: I have a small amount of my feeds detected by the notifier; these are family and friends feeds that I want to know about immediately. The majority of my feeds I don’t have detected by the notifier; I usually visit Bloglines once a day to read these feeds.

    Here’s the request: Right now, clicking on the blue “B” in the bottom right hand corner only takes me to Bloglines if there is a new post detected by the notifier (and the read “New” star is displayed). I would like clicking on the “B” to take me to Bloglines even if I don’t have any new posts detected by the notifier (and the red star).

  3. Hi!
    Congratulations for your extension!
    Is very very useful, I use it every day (in fact, many many times a day 😉
    I just want ask you if someone is translating the toolkit to spanish and, if not, if I can translate it.
    Thanks and congrats aganin.

  4. Thanks for the great extension!

    I’d like to ask for two changes (if possible):
    1) An option to hide the icon in the status bar
    2) To put the icon in the status bar to the left of ForecastFox icons (I don’t know if you can change this, but the B icon is the last on of the status bar and i think it would fit better in the left of forecastfox icons)

  5. Hey,

    Thanks for the Bloglines Notifier, but I’m getting a bug in Mozilla 1.7.5. Whenever I start up Mozilla, I get an error message that says: TypeError: document.getElementById(“contentAreaContextMenu”) has no properties

    I’m pretty sure this is related to the notifier; do you know what it means? If not, can you tell me how to uninstall the notifier?

  6. The Japanese version of Bloglines Toolkit 1.5.1 was made. May I open to the public?

    This text was translated into English from Japanese by Amikai.

  7. Since this appears to be the most commonly-voiced request at this point, I’ll be happy to consider it for an upcoming release of the extension. However, I am going to hold off on working on this feature until this new Dropcash campaign has been completed.

  8. I’d like to suggest a simple feature for Bloglines Toolkit: I’d like to open Bloglines in a new tab when I middle-click the “B” icon.

    Thanks,
    Daniel Serodio
