Version 4.9.2 - Firefox Web Extension Release

Hi! Today i've released a new version for firefox user's that use the web extensions technology instead of weird native XUL based stuff. It is a breaking release. All current installed version will not be updated automatically. You have to do that manually. Download and install it via the download button. Older version will still work but will never get automatic updates. Install the new version from our website, after that point you will again receive automatic updates. You can migrate the settings from old version to the new with the "import/export" buttons in the bblog menu in battlelog. We cannot automate this. Also, you may notice that, when you have bblog already installed, you will see BBLog multiple times in your addons. Make sure that you manually delete the old version (export settings first). Technical reason is that we use a new addon UUID because of the all new technology. Technically the old and the new version are different addons. BBLog is not dead, it've just reached a specific point of perfection :) PS: Nevermind the 9.9.9 version in the BBLog menu, it's a cool bug :)

Greaterfield - The new "BBLog" for companion and BF forums

Well, i can't get my hands off this franchise... I started development of a new extension for companion and the new forums. It's called... Greaterfield Don't know why this name, it comes to my mind first, so i took that. What will be different to Better Battlelog? In general, all. It's a whole new extension, fresh from scratch. I really don't know what will come and what i will do. All new development circle With BBLog i fully controlled the development of BBLog. This will change, somehow. Greaterfield is designed from scratch to collaborate on GitHub. All themes and plugins will also be hosted on GitHub for a seamless developer experience. The changes that made the step into the extension are controlled by me, in the first place. Maybe this will change. Super-Raw-Early-Stage You can get your hands on, right now. Theme support is implemented, pretty raw and dirty, but it should work. The roadmap will be shown in the issues and wiki of github. https://github.com/brainfoolong/greaterfield A homepage also exist, but it will be pretty simple a will not contain any forums at all.

Maybe, i re-consider an extension for BF companion and the new forums...

Today, i took a deeper look into web companion and the new battlefield forums. And it definetely reminds me to the beginning of battlelog. The service is not optimized and missing a LOT of features. So, there is a lot of potential to improve it. And also with 2.5k online users in the forums the userbase is quite big. Should i start making something like "Better Web Battlefield"? Hmmmm.... To be honest, i don't know what i should do...

Firefox's new Web Extensions - BBLog will switch

Hi all! Firefox currently does a lot of changes in the addon system for their browser. They totally change the behavior how developers write addons. The new system is pretty much the same as google chrome already use. For BBLog this is good news, it means that we can use almost the same codebase for firefox and chrome, which is just aweseome. I've currently done first tests and BBLog works fine with the new web extensions api. So, when the feature goes live for the stable firefox branch, BBLog will switch to the new extension api as well. First i will push out a developer version for sure. For all the geeks out there -> https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions

Avast and BBLog Firefox Addon Download Errors

Since we've installed a SSL certificate on our server to improve security, with forcing https for all our sites and download, we've encountered a problem for some user's of Avast while installing our BBLog addon. Avast have a feature called "Enable HTTPS scanning", this means that they scan and decrypt the encrypted https traffic. This feature have many "false-positive" matches. A more detailed view and workaround here: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=175302.0 BBLog is not the only site and service the have problems with the "special feature" from avast. We can nothing do against this errors, the best is to just disable HTTPS scanning for the download of our addon. Greetz Roland
