Well, that's it, Gears 0.3 has officially left the nest. Most users have now been updated to 0.3.24.0. If you haven't, you can update at gears.google.com.
It seemed like just yesterday we were announcing 0.2. But here we are again, with great new features like:
- Support for Firefox 3!
- Ability to create desktop shortcuts
- Improved support for customizing the installation flow and permission dialog
- Better support for sending complex objects to workers
- Detailed progress events for managed resource store updates
- And more...
As always, please let us know what you think of the new APIs, and what you think still needs work. Or better yet, join the project and send us a patch.
And don't worry about us, we'll be fine. We've got to focus on 0.4. Soon enough, it too will spread its wings.
