Google Contacts 0.6.34b1

New beta testing for Google Contacts has started. v0.6.34b1 is now available.

The main goal of v0.6.34 is to address a limitation for number of contacts to be synchronized. The limitation depends on your contacts data; if the size of your raw data sent from Google exceeds the limitation of JavaScript's String object length, it fails to synchronize.

This version may little bit slower than the previous releases but it has ability to retrieve a lot of contacts.

Please test the beta with care.

Google Contacts 0.6.33

Google Contacts 0.6.33 is now available for download. One of main changes in this version is a synchronization of phonetic first/last names (yomi in Japanese), which is an important feature for Japanese users. See the images below for the synchronization. (the phonetic name fields may not appear in you language settings)

v0.6.33 also has a function to uniquify user mail lists by adding suffix, which has already worked for system groups. It will solve the problem in synchronizing Android contacts, which is reported many users. But, since I don't have an Android phone, it is not fully tested. Please let me know, if you find problems.

Other changes in this version, refer to the post I wrote for beta test announcement.

Tag Toolbar 0.8.20

Tag Toolbar 0.8.20 is now available for download. It newly has a tag import function. See the post for the detail.

I think it is useful for cases such as recovering tags from a backup, sharing tags other people, etc.

Have fun!

Importing tags in other profiles

Tag Toolbar 0.8.20b1 is now available for testing. It includes new functionality to import tags, which is requested some users.

"Import" tab is added to the option dialog. You can import tags in another profile from here. Other profiles which can be found by the add-on are listed in the Profile list. Choose a profile and click Import button. You can also specify prefs.js manually if a profile you want to import is not found. Plus, you can import Tag Toolbar categories, too.

If no error is found in several days, I'll release it as a stable version. Please let me know, if you find problems.

Before talking about Tag Toolbar ...

I've recently asked Tag Toolbar many times but some users misunderstood with the Quick filter. Quick filter is a functionality of Thunderbird. It is just a filter and cannot add/remove tags. These are similar but different.
