Description (last modified by wspee)


During the review of the packager (#4028), I claimed that the Id attribute of the uap3:AppExtension node in AppxManifest.xml always needs to be set to EdgeExtension. Hence it got hard-coded, but apparently this was a misconception.

Initially, that value could be set to any floating point number. However, changing this field caused Microsoft Edge to recognize the extension as a completely different extension. So they changed the validation in the Windows Store to force this field to be set to EdgeExtension (string) for all new extensions (like our development build), while forcing the value not to change for existing extensions (like our release version).

So now we are in a situation where the Adblock Plus development builds must use the value EdgeExtension, while the release builds need to keep the value 1.0.

What to change

Add a metadata option to make the Id attribute of the uap3:AppExtension node in AppxManifest.xml configure. Fall back to EdgeExtension if the option is missing.
