The first Remora release was March 2007.
AMO, Version 3.1 was released in September 2007. It includes support for download counters for the developer control panel
AMO, v3.3 was released during Q1 & Q2 2008. Its goal was to offer an API to AMO to support Fx3's new "Get Add-ons" panel. A API requirements document is available.
We shifted development to a rapid iteration cycle and AMO, v3.4 was released in Apr 2008 followed by several point releases. Its goal was to offer new navigation, a theme browser, advanced search. A series of blog posts about v3.4 features appear (3.4.1, 3.4.2, 3.4.3/3.4.4)
AMO, v3.5 is a rewrite of the developer tools section of AMO currently scheduled for Jul 2008. Documented in a five-part blog post.
addons.mozilla.org was rewritten to scale better for high-load public site.
We realize that rewriting has been a long time coming. This is why we have reevaluated our situation and have set more realistic short-term goals.
Read the v2.0 plan.
v1.0 was released, based in part on work done in the security audit. Further revisions will be addressed on a case-by-case basis as our efforts turn towards v2.0, which is based on a much better framework.
- The AMO API 1.0 release was the first iteration of a read-only API and primarily targeted Firefox 3 Beta 3 (also known as AMO v3.3)
- The AMO API 1.1 release included fixes to support the final ship of Firefox 3
- AMO API 2.0 will include expanded read-only functionality (for stats), support add-on authors, an API key mechanism in order to allow AMO metadata and add-on uploads.
- Urchin is used for web analytics - tracking site page view and session stats
- Download & Update pings are tracked via custom dashboard. Migrating to a Pentaho-base system.
- Every add-on has private stats dashboards on AMO accessible thru the Dev Tools. Some add-ons have public stats
- Here is the stats wishlist.
This is a list of features that we'd eventually like to add to AMO.
