Camino 0.8b's Info.plist file retains some outdated names from its' own past. CFBundleIdentifier: org.mozilla.navigator (shows up in crash reports; change to org.mozilla.Camino?) CFBundleSignature: CHIM (is this a type/creator code relic? Change to CMNO or CAMI?)
You still need a bundle signature in OS X for LaunchServices; it's the replacement or Cocoa equivalent for creator code. For compatability reasons these typically don't change (and particularly now that 3rd-party prefpanes need the signature). I'm unsure of where/in which ways the org.mozilla.navigator is used, but I've noticed in other apps that change names that this string does seem to change with name changes. According to LXR, it only shows up in the Info.plist(s): http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/search?string=org.mozilla.navigator It apparently gets used in the name of the plist the Finder uses to store Camino's NavServices history (last folder used, etc.): ~/Library/Preferences/org.mozilla.navigator.plist One could make an argument for changing these for 1.0 (and therefore probably for 0.9 so it's not a "last minute" thing) or for WONTFIXing. There's also a CFBundleGetInfoString: Camino 0.8+, © 2003-2004 The Mozilla Foundation that doesn't seem to show up anywhere (the About Camino and Get Info both show the 1998-2005 dates) for some reason. Since this appears either to be a quick fix or a quick won't fix and something that shouldn't appear suddenly for 1.0 if it is to be changed, pulling the camino0.9 ? flag....
Changing that stuff has some significant implications... we should definitely think about this but it shouldn't hold up a release.
Flags: camino0.9? → camino0.9-
I vote for chaning the bundle identifier soon; most people will not associate org.mozilla.navigator prefs with Camino.
Target Milestone: --- → Camino1.0
(In reply to comment #3) > I vote for chaning the bundle identifier soon; most people will not associate > org.mozilla.navigator prefs with Camino. Since there's not going to be a full development cycle post 0.9 now, should this change happen right after 0.9b? Presumably there's some code needed to migrate the old file in addition to simply changing the string in the plist.
Summary: Camino Info.plist file retains some outdated names → Change bundle identifier from org.mozilla.navigator to org.mozilla.camino
(In reply to comment #4) > Presumably there's some code needed to migrate the old file in addition to > simply changing the string in the plist. Yeah, I think we could just load in the old values using -[NSUserDefaults persistentDomainForName:], and then set a "Old Defaults Imported" bool in the new file, or something like that.

True; the only thing we save is toolbar layout and other OS built-ins.
(In reply to comment #7) > True; the only thing we save is toolbar layout and other OS built-ins. Having to reset your toolbars' layouts and the history and bookmarks columns and splitter position and whatnot would be an annoyance, but not any sort of critical dataloss.
Definately blocking 1.0. I sent mail to my plugin developers list to see if this will break anyone.
Created attachment 195510 [details] [diff] [review] Do it. This should be done now. Now, as in, right before 1.0a1. It's either now or never, folks.

Since from Mark's forum post it seems that CHIM was changed to MOZC instead of just the bundle identifier change, has that new CFBundleSignature been registered with Apple to keep it unique? http://developer.apple.com/datatype/creatorcode.html (Was/is CHIM registered, too, since it's still valid for custom prefPanes?)
I registered MOZC with a MoFo address under Josh's name.
