(Whiteboard: [krupa to review in 2012])

Similar to the following link to get the latest release version of Weave..

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/latest/10868/addon-10868-latest.xpi?src=addondetail

There should be a -latest-beta.xpi to link to remotely.

Bug 526077 comment 1 refers to something similar:
"It should have an anchor so it's easy to link"

But I think that's referring to a link to a html download page and not the actual xpi.

Seeing that this was closed due to resource constrains, I hope that you don't mind me reopening. This is an important issue for us now that Adblock Plus development builds are hosted on AMO - we cannot link to them properly. I've prepared a patch, so resource shortage shouldn't matter too much hopefully.

STR:
go to an add-on that has a development channel, and check that the link on the install button in there contains "/latest-beta/", which installs the latest beta version.
The same way, copying the link from the install button at the very top of the addon listing, and replacing "/latest/" by "/latest-beta/" in it should install the same latest beta version.
I can't see the latest-bate in the link : http://screencast.com/t/Fh67e7X7wS

From our conversation on irc:

 17:57 	@magopian	VictorC: i was talking about URLs on the listing page of the addon, not on the "versions list"
17:57 	@magopian	eg: https://addons.allizom.org/en-us/firefox/addon/noscript/?src=ss
17:57 	freonbot	[ NoScript Security Suite :: Add-ons for Firefox ] - addons.allizom.org
17:58 	@magopian	if you go to the "development channel" right at the bottom
17:58 	@magopian	if you look at the url for the install button (in this case it's a bit of a pain because the install button is greyed out, but if you "inspect element", you'll see the url: /firefox/downloads/latest-beta/722/addon-722-latest.xpi?src=ss
17:58 	@magopian	it has "latest-beta"
17:59 	@magopian	and if you copy the url from the install button at the top of the page: https://addons.allizom.org/firefox/downloads/latest/722/addon-722-latest.xpi?src=ss
17:59 	@magopian	and if you replace "/latest" with "/latest-beta": https://addons.allizom.org/firefox/downloads/latest-beta/722/addon-722-latest.xpi?src=ss
17:59 	@magopian	then it offers to install the latest beta file
Yes, that link isn't supposed to appear on the versions listing - it contains various different versions, not just the latest one. I can see the correct link under https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/#beta-channel however.

If I understand this discussion correctly, this bug should be closed again.
