Guide to Updating Extensions for Firefox PR/Thunderbird 0.8 Available

When we do this, all installed Extensions installed with maxVersion set for Firefox to 0.9 and maxVersion set for Thunderbird to 0.7 will be disabled to prevent compatibility issues. If your extension or theme still works and has no compatibility problems with the nightly builds, please look at the guide for updating to 1.0PR (this also applies to Thunderbird 0.8) for information about how to get update.mozilla.org to contain the newer compatibility information. If your extension or theme is incompatible, the guide also has information on how to provide a newer XPI or JAR file. Finally, people not hosted by update.mozilla.org but who use the custom RDF update system should also check out the guide as it provides links that explain changes to the RDF format since 0.9."

So I guess this means that the days of manually updating extensions will soon be over with? I'll be glad when that day comes. Doing it the manual way is a pain in the ass. I'll take automation over manual labor any day.
