Tahoe Data Manager updated

As I mentioned recently, I have picked up on the Data Manager again, and the new version of the add-on has been made public yesterday.

There's not much in this feature-wise, just a small improvement on deleting entries from lists and a possibility to launch certain views directly when calling it (and that also means it has its own caller function now), next to a few more code restructuring changes from the SeaMonkey reviews, so I only bumped the version number to 1.0.3 and nothing higher - yet.

The really large change though is that the add-on now has a public code name. I have been thinking about this for a while and in the end decided to use code names for all my add-on projects that improve Firefox and/or SeaMonkey functionality, and use bodies of water for them - based on my SeaMonkey roots. :)

Image No. 22443

The Data Manager's new code name "Tahoe", and old Washo Indian word for "deep water", refers to a lake on the borders of California and Nevada that is known, among other things, for very deep and very clear waters - similar to the deep reach and clear sight in data that this add-on provides.

I've also picked up Download Manager UI work again, though only as an add-on - even though if it's not up on AMO yet because it's not ready enough for this at the moment. Currently, there's only a source repository for it - and it already has the code name "Jökulsárlón", after an Icelandic glacier lagoon that has pieces breaking off the glacier and swimming through it as icebergs on their way to the sea, just like files through the download manager.

While the Download Manager work will not go into SeaMonkey code, the Data Manager work is or will be (patches are up for the current changes) - and the add-on source code is public as well, of course.

In the mean time, have fun using Tahoe Data Manager - built into SeaMonkey 2.1 or as an add-on for Firefox 4! :)

P.S.: My German-language dictionaries also have new 2.0.2 versions available in variants for Germany, Austria, Switzerland.

I really like your data manager. There are some unexpected behaviours, like changing tabs if they're disabled but in general I really like the idea.

What about giving it a nice look like the addon manager has or rather will have, once it's done?

Robert, I'd like to ask, is it planed Profile-Guided Optimization (PGO) for SeaMonkey builds in repository ?
I think it would be a great idea to improve speed of SeaMonkey builds ...

I'd be happy about design ideas for sure, I focused on functionality first. :)

PGO for SeaMonkey doesn't have any connection to this blog post.

Pardon me, I should try the previous one , but by a mistake posted it here ...

By the way , are you answering in the old previous yours blog posts ;)?
I wanted to ask - Does The Data Manager have an option to optimize a data base and compact it ?

I'm answering to any comment, no matter how old the post is - if it makes sense.

And no, Tahoe Data Manager doesn't offer any services on databases, only on the data itself (but, just to add on that, Firefox 4 and SeaMonkey 2.1 auto-compact most databases anyhow).

I just know one great function that imo must be in every data manager...,
it's a "to move all data to temporary place and then after - import that all data back".
By some strange magic forces this operation compacts and optimizes all bases I've ever seen ;). I hoped to see this stuff in Tahoe ...
