Mozilla released version 0.3 of its Jetpack software development kit (SDK) yesterday.
Importantly the latest release, currently being readied for the big time with a planned slot into the open source outfit’s popular browser Firefox, now comes with two high-level APIs.
Previous releases came minus any APIs for building rich add-ons into the SDK.
The “context menu” API allows add-ons to bolt items to the context menu for web pages, thereby giving users additional options when they context-click on elements in pages, said Mozilla.
It’s also added a “self” API to this release, which enables add-ons to access web page, image and other resources that are bundled with the add-on package.
Mozilla added that Jetpack 0.3 comes with a series of bug fixes and other tweaks.
