I have just released YouTube5 v2.6.8, which fixes the issues many of you have been encountering on YouTube. I want to thank you all for your patience, and I am also very grateful for the many donations I have received in the last few days; knowing how much people appreciate this extension is a huge incentive to fix it quickly.
I do want to apologize that this fix took so long to come out. The main reason for the delay was that I wasn’t aware anything was wrong until a user emailed me a couple days ago. This may seem surprising given how many of you commented on this blog letting me know it was broken, but to be perfectly honest this blog receives so many comments that I turned off notifications long ago, and I hadn’t checked it in a while. This communication breakdown has made me realize I need to make some changes around here to prevent future such occurrences:
From now on, comments, suggestions, bug reports, etc. should be posted to one of two places:
These two communication channels should be far more manageable than one massive set of comments on a single page. I also post updates to my Twitter account whenever YouTube5 is updated, so feel free to follow me if you would like to be notified.
Again, I apologize that I have been unable to keep up with the number of comments posted to this site. I deeply appreciate all the reports, and hopefully using these new channels I will be able to actually respond to them.
