This page lists all versions of the Converter ever released. The history goes back before the first release on AMO, and old versions even work with Firefox 1.0 (all versions prior to 0.8.0).
You can use this page any time to roll back to an older version if you encounter problems with the current version of the Converter (if that’s the case, please drop me a line and let me know about that bug).

0.8.6 2009-05-07 This is a minor release containing a single bug fix — the next full release I’m working on takes more than I expected, and what with the Converter being featured at AMO at the time, I decided to release this one ahead of time.

0.5.5 2006-10-07 This version focuses on both bug fixes and improvements. No spectacular changes have taken place, but there are some significant advances nevertheless.
0.5.1 2006-09-26 This version features no functional improvements — the only change is support for Firefox 2.0.x
0.5.0 2006-09-16 This version’s improvements are almost exclusively focused on increasing the number of supported informal formats used for measurements across the web.
In previous versions, the efforts have been concentrated on two directions: (a) bug fixing, and (b) supporting the more rigorously formatted measurements. It has been proven however that not all people use rigorous formats—on the contrary, many use non-standard formats. That is why this version is considered a major release, with dramatic increases in the number of “hits” when converting arbitrary web pages.
