Ups. I am sorry - don't know why I missed this.

Thanks for pointing out!

Dear Sven,

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

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:maxVersion>17.*</em:maxVersion>" );
