KES 2.0.0: improved cross-platform compatibility, more stable, many new features

Original 1.0.0 release post here

Thanks to your detailed bug reports and the tireless efforts of our contributors, KES has undergone significant stability changes and has been upgraded with a more robust API framework to support the different flavors of GreaseMonkey, TamperMonkey, ViolentMonkey, etc.

If you had tried the previous version but could not get it working on GreaseMonkey/iOS, now is the time to try again.

In addition, this version brings a host of usability improvements, as well as a few new mods. Notably, this includes the Notifications Panel by @blobcat, which was highly asked for.

With this stability brush-up, this release paves the way for a stable foundation we can start adding many more mods to. If there is one you would like to see included, feel to drop a request here.


Notable feature additions:

  • Notifier on wrench icon if updates to KES are available
  • Transparent Mode: click the icon to see behind the KES menu and check changes on the page; click again to return
  • Reset button: clear all saved KES settings and reset
  • Clipboard button: copy system information to clipboard (used when submitting bug reports)
  • Notifications Panel (@blobcat): adds a navbar bell icon that opens notifications in an iframe
  • Bug-report-from-post: post contents of a message directly to the KES bug tracker
  • Display total number of add-ons enabled in header

Existing users:
The latest release is available through the install update button on KES, or through your extension manager.

New users:
The latest release is available here.
If you are a new user, see the docs for additional information and usage guides.


Mod authors:
This release ships with safeGM(), a shim which handles cross compatibility between the different GM APIs.
You can call this shim by passing it standard GM_ or GM. (4.0) commands without the prefix and pass the usual arguments.
A detailed explanation of this and other new utility functions is available here

There is also better support for fields like reset buttons, ranges (sliders), and number inputs. Now you can prompt users for a numerical input or tweak the value of a setting, or revert them to their initial values.

A total rewrite of the documentation now includes integration examples, sample code, and discussion of how KES handles
mutation observer events for you. This should make it even easier than before to port your scripts.

If you would like to contribute more actively to the development of KES, be it through testing, graphics, administrative issues, or code contributions, please feel free to reach out.
