As best as I can understand, this is the current status with respect to the various versions of Adblock (please correct any mistakes):

Offical version:
Current version: 0.5.2.056 (Last update date: November 29, 2005)
URLs:
https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=10&application=firefox
http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/index.php?showtopic=774
http://adblock.mozdev.org/ (Lists the current version as 0.5.2.039 !)

Adblock Plus (unoffical mod):
Current version #: 0.5.10.20051206 (Last update date: Dec 5, 2005)
URLs:
http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=266291
http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/index.php?showtopic=774
http://bene.sitesled.com/adblock.htm

Is this correct? What is the status of the developers on each of the projects? Is the offical version still mostly inactive? Will the unoffical version get listed on addons.mozilla.org eventually? Is there a plan to merge the two versions?

On my system (Mozilla 1.5, Win 95) none of these versions (0.5.2.056, adblock+) worked, neither did nightly build 0.5.040. Couldn't get a list of blockable items (window was empty and could not be closed), hand-typed filters worked sometimes with 0.5.040.

Searched for previous versions with google and found 0.5.039 which is doing fine on my PC Very Happy

Sadly, d2 nightly 39 would have fared alright, in the end. The reason it failed under 1.5 was actually a browser bug -- fixed in the latest versions of the trunk (Firefox 1.6a). Nothing was Adblock's fault.
.
But, since Mozilla.org went ahead, the old code is under development again, even sporting a new trick or two. The latest build (d3 Nightly 40) can block ajax-requests; which means gmail ads are blockable. They show as "ajax / xmlhttprequest" in the blockable-items list. The feature can be disabled, via pref: adblock.ajaxintercept - bool.
.
Nightly 40 will be pushed to AMO, when ready. Development is ongoing.
.
Cheers,
rue

rue, the ajax-request blocking sounds sweet. Would you be willing to divulge features that you are working on or plan to work on for adblock 0.6?

Please... Eh? Pray

Um, then how come I still notice all the bugs listed as being fixed in this thread with the latest trunk build and d2 nightly 39 then?
