I’ve just completed the move of QuickProxy and sites under it to the new site. This will allow me to better integrate a system like TRAC (which I’m currently planning on doing for QuickProxy) with the site itself.
For those that frequent the site you may notice some cosmetic changes, which have also allowed me to turn on threaded comments for the blog, to better keep track of things that go on around here.
I’ve also been able to implement some of the features people have suggested or sent me code snippets for, and I hope to have a new version available soon.
Update: Users that have subscribed to my RSS feed will need to update the address, as this has also changed. Feedburner will redirect the old feeds for the next 30 days, but to ensure that you stay subscribed please update the feeds to either:
- Main RSS: http://feeds.ozzie.id.au/QuickProxy
- Comments RSS: http://feeds.ozzie.id.au/QuickProxy-Comments
Hopefully with this new structure even if I migrate the site again the feeds will stay in place.
It’s been a long time since QuickProxy was first launched, and apart from some cosmetic and behavior changes the extension remains as minimal as I can get it. I’m happy to announce that on the 11th of September, QuickProxy became a Recommended addon in its category.
While I was having a look around the site to see what this had changed, when viewing the section for Privacy & Security addons, I saw that QuickProxy was also on top for the Top Rated addon.
The 3.5.* compatibile release of QuickProxy has finally been approved by the Mozilla editors, after 6 weeks from the initial release. I hope that the time that this took isn’t going to remain for any future versions that are submitted, specifically for versions that are required for future firefox releases. Those using the previous versions should now be able to auto-update to the latest version through Firefox, or you can get it manually by going here.
With the change of hosts that underwent today, the game server’s that were previously hosted on the old host are now offline. I may eventually look at putting one or two servers up on this new server, but as I don’t use the servers anymore myself, and the servers just seemed to create more havoc than enjoyment, there isn’t much incentive to do so.
