I have a bag of goodies for you today.
Thanks to the help of wonderful volunteers, our WordPress plugin has been updated with translations for German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Polish, and Russian. It also includes updated translations for Portuguese and French.
This update also fixes several bugs related to finding and highlighting errors. I recommend this update for all AtD users.
You can get the latest from the WordPress plugin repository.
If you use After the Deadline for Firefox, the 1.2 release is available on the early access page. The early access release exists because it takes time for the volunteer editors to review the release. An approval is necessary for it to show up as an automatic update.
I like to think of it as a free code review from an experienced developer, just for participating in the Mozilla community. You can wait for the automatic update or get the early access release now. Don’t you want to be the first on your block to run the latest AtD for Firefox?
The latest bbPress plugin adds an auto-proofread option, the ability to select which errors you see, and an ignore always option.
If you’re a developer using AtD, don’t worry–I haven’t left you out. Our TinyMCE plugin is up to date with the latest bug fixes. Also if you’re using the jQuery plugin, the cross-domain AJAX calls now support all the languages AtD supports.
You can always find the latest AtD libraries on our Developer Resources page.
This add-on has all the After the Deadline features. You can enable the style checker options you use in the preferences and you can ignore errors to prevent them from coming up.

After the Deadline already can be easily embedded and can travel with you as a bookmarklet, but what if you could have After the Deadline’s superior grammar and spell check incorporated into the browser? We’re going to make this happen with the After the Deadline Firefox add-on. The Firefox add-on will let you use After the Deadline on web forms across the web, while providing the clean integration only possible through an add-on.
While there is still much work to be done on the add-on, a very early-stage beta of the add-on is now available for download. Please install the add-on and give it a try! If you find a bug or have a feature request, please post it to our trac bug tracker or email us. We’ll look forward to hearing your feedback!
