Virtual Identity extension 0.4.0pre released

Posted by on 17 Feb 2007 | Tagged as: Hacking, virtual id

…it has been a long while since I programmed the last bits for the Virtual Identity extension. With Virtual Identity you can create an Identity while writing an email in Thunderbird, without using the usual Settings Interface ‘on the fly’. It’s really handy if you have your own domain and use different email-addresses for different recipients, for instance to prevent spam.

But, the extension wasn’t compatible with the upcoming Thunderbird 2.0. And as much as I like the program, I missed the often requested feature to scan headers for reply addresses. So I had to change it. And what a long way, at the end I decided to write the whole thing once again. Viola, there it is, the preview is ready and can be downloaded virtual_identity-0.4.0pre-mz+tb.xpi

Features of the new Version:

  • smoother integration in the Thunderbird Interface
  • use specified mail-headers for Smart Reply feature (needs installed enigmail or mnenhy extension)
  • allow saving of Drafts/Templates keeping Virtual Identity stored (requires Thunderbird 2.0)
  • compatible with Thunderbird 2.0

sounds good? Ok, than try it, and please report any bugs or problems. And feel free to contact me if you like to translate the extension in your language…

Posted by on 17 Feb 2007 | Tagged as: Hacking

wow, lost in cyberspace I not only forgot a lot of friends (sorry, will not happen again 😉 ), I also forgot to announce the final release of the opennet-firmware. Hope this also will not happen again. So, late but also there, the announcement: Opennet-Firmware 0.11-11 released. It’s now compatible with the OpenWRT release 0.9 but can also be used on rc5 or rc6 as the former versions. And as usually, the complete firmware is also available, its now the on4 release.

If you have any questions how this firmware might be useful for you, or why not, feal free to ask.
