Description (last modified by sebastian)


Most notably, this dependency update improves the way jshydra (i.e the [convert_js] section) can be configured (#4047).

Moreover, we did some improvements under the hood, mostly to prepare for Python 3 (#4339, #4375, #4382), however we are not there yet. And xar is no longer required to generate Safari builds (#4340).

What to change

  • Update the dependencies file to refer to the revisions that include the mentioned changes.
  • Adapt the [convert_js] section in the metadata.* files for the new format.
  • Update the README: We no longer depend on xar and M2Crypto, but use PyCrypto instead now.

Hints for testers

  • The new mechanism to configure JavaScript modules is inevitably changing the order of the modules. This should not be a problem, but who knows. In particular the code that is only used on either Chrome/Safari is effected (e.g. popup blocking, the devtools panel and uninstallation page on Chrome, and Content Blocker support on Safari).
  • We also replaced the crypto library, which might effect our self-signed development builds for Chrome and Safari.
