With the upcoming Nightingale 1.12 release, we will be introducing the first changes to our API. Don’t worry, as they should not break the majority of our add-ons. These changes are a result of our decision to upgrade to a completely unpatched, vanilla XULRunner 188.8.131.52 — thus removing some additional patches by POTI. The patch with the most impact affects search engines. If you aren’t an add-on developer, you may not want to read on, since this post is mainly an informative post about the changes I made.

One of the CoMETE project this year was to improve the current Equalizer.
Currently, the Songbird/Nightingale Equalizer only allow to fiddle with buttons and it’s pretty much it. I did in the past an add-on for Songbird to add basic presets support and recently Brice Santus from Evry added the ability to save your own presets in Nightingale.
For techies, your presets are saved in a XML file inside your profile folder, so you can easily copy it
For now, the improved equalizer is available as an add-on for testing purposes, but it’s going to be shipped by default on a future Nightingale version.
So please test it, report any bugs on the GitHub issues page, and also tell us how to improve it !
