For those of you who have a tendency to develop your own extensions, I have now updated the extensions documentation README to reflect the latest PopClip 2021.11.
There is also a new CHANGELOG file which describes all the changes in some detail.
The tl;dr is that you don’t have to do anything different - everything is backwards compatible - but you may choose to use some new features.
The most notable recent changes:
- Can use JSON or YAML for config file, instead of Plist.
- Can specify icons as SF Symbols or as a special text format (see picture below).
- Can use SVG icons.
- Some fields renamed, and many previously required fields are now optional.
Generally I have been working to simplify and modernise everything, whilst keeping backward compatibility with the nearly 10 years of existing extensions that are out there (extensions have been a thing since May 2012).
