We have fixed some potentially significant memory leaks and fixed a few bugs; highly recommend that everyone update to get the memory leak fix.

No breaking changes.

Change list:

  • Fixed potential crash on chrome when calling JSAPI methods
  • FIREBREATH-9 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • Fixed misc GCC warnings (thanks, Kalev!)
  • FIREBREATH-10 - Getting issue details... STATUS
    • This memory leak affected all platforms and could have wide reaching effects.
  • Fixed an issue causing the wrong version of the ATL headers to be used in some cases

After an unusually long time in beta and RC, we are really excited to release FireBreath 1.4.0! There are some really major improvements in the 1.4 branch over 1.3 and we strongly recommend that everyone upgrade as soon as possible. Even if you don't plan to use any of the new features, there are a great many improvements in the browser interfaces that will make working with your plugin easier and faster.

For more information, see the complete Version History.
