Dear Sven,

André Schild posted an upgrade script yesterday. I think, this is exactly what you need.

" type="cite">Dear List,

it is possible to configure the update server in a way that simultaneous support of Thunderbird 17 and 24 is given?

Right now I deliver sogo-integrator, sogo-connector and lightning using the update server (see below). I would think that this configuration implies that these add-ons would only pushed to thunderbird 17.

But if I upgrade a thunderbird client from 17 to 24 the client still tries to install the updates. Even more strangely, lightning will then be disabled (what is correct since it is not compatible) but sogo-connector and sogo-integrator are activated (despite having version restrictions in their install.rdf).

Am I doing something wrong? How do you serve different versions of thunderbird clients?

Best regards,


Note: I observed this behaviour with linux clients (ubuntu 13.04). I did not check the behaviour of windows yet.

=== excerpt from updates.php ===

= array(
        ">" "
         => array( "application" => "thunderbird",
                   "version" => "17.0.5",
                   "filename" => "sogo-connector-17.0.5.xpi" ),
        ">" "
         => array( "application" => "thunderbird",
                   "version" => "17.0.5",
                   "filename" => "sogo-integrator-17.0.5.xpi" ),
         => array( "application" => "thunderbird",
                   "version" => "1.9.1",
                   "filename" => "lightning-1.9.1.xpi" )

= array( "thunderbird" => "<em:id>{3550f703-e582-4d05-9a08-453d09bdfdc6}</em:id>
                <em:maxVersion>17.*</em:maxVersion>" );
