The release of the initial version of Firediff brought quite a bit of input in terms of changes that can be made to the app. Due to this, I have decided to release another version from the 0.1 branch, 0.1a2. This is release is a bug fix release and does not include any of the extended functionality that is targeted for the 0.2 branch.
Changes: – Display an error message when Firediff is installed on top of Firebug 1.3 – Modified Firebug HTML editor handling to improve Firebug source tracking – Fixed CSS editor merge logic – Provide failover case for XPath generation on “unknown” node types – Extension update registration

Many thanks to Ajaxian for the bump yesterday.
A few people have reported issues with downloading the extension due to MIME types. Rather than trying to force WordPress to handle non-media files, I have moved the release location here. Future releases will be available at this location as well.
A few other issues within the code have been identified that are targeted at the 0.1 codeline. These are currently being examined and a new 0.1 branch release will likely be created in the next few days.
I’m pleased to announce that the initial version of Firediff is now available.
Firediff is a Firebug extension whose goal is to provide additional insight into the changes that are being made to the components of the page. As a 0.1 release this is effectively a preview of the final goals of the project. Many of the end goals such as diff generation, undo/redo functionality, and change persistence are still in the infancy.
Firediff currently requires a recent build of Firebug, with a strict requirement of at least version 1.4.
