Firebug Lite 1.2 Released
Today Firebug Lite 1.2 was released. This new version was built by Azer Koçulu, creator of pi.debugger. Azer joined the Firebug Working Group, morphed the GUI to look like Firebug, and added it to the Firebug code base.
I was able to demo this at OSCON today thanks to the folks from Mozilla who are now working on Firebug. As John Resig posted last week, he, Rob Campbell, and Jan Odvarko are going to be focusing on Firebug. Just one week later the benefits from their involvement are already being seen, as Rob quickly got the updates hosted on getfirebug.com. The roadmap for Firebug will be discussed at the upcoming Firefox Summit and the next Firebug Working Group meeting at Google in early August. I’ve been working with Azer testing his releases over the last month. It’s great to have Firebug functionality when I drop into IE. Thanks Azer and Rob!
