Seeing as we're currently in the awkward transitional period of updating to a new version of Inform 7, I thought it would be a good idea to maintain a list of extensions that have compatibility issues of varying degrees. It is my hope that such a list will help both authors and users of these extensions get their bearings on what works, what doesn't, and what needs to be done to bring everything up to speed. I will update the list whenever I can with information as it comes in from your reports. Extension authors are welcome to report their update progress as well.

Other threads and URLs of interest:

Categories:
  • Fatal - Extension does not compile at all or causes severe errors in run time.
  • Broken- Compiles, but the extension behaves unexpectedly. (Including notable performance issues.)
  • Good - Extensions which have been fixed by an update.

Note that there are new and compatible versions of extensions in the Public Library (I, Eric Eve, Emily Short, Aaron Reed, Ron Newcomb, Andrew Plotkin and possibly others have updated their extensions.)

Is it possible to access the Public Library manually if we're on Windows or Linux?

Well, I would have had a look if only I had found a link to it. :(

This is the web service URL: http://www.emshort.com/pl/

Obviously this is intended to be displayed as part of the IDE, so all the "install" buttons have are placeholders and won't work.

I'm not sure what you mean by this. The current Windows IDE just opens the file dialog to my local folder where the old extensions are sitting. Do you mean the Windows IDE will shortly be updated, or do you mean something else?

I mean "do not visit that URL, Jim."

Inline Hyperlinks by Erik Temple - Version 2/101030

It compiles, but the links are not numbered correctly. Take this example:
Code:
Intfiction is a room.
The description is "[link]First link[end link]. [link]Second link[end link]. [link]Third link[end link]. [link]Fourth link[end link]. [link]Fifth link[end link]."

All of these links, when clicked, behave as the fifth link rather than being unique.

The other problem has to do with using the [as] tag in the links:
Code:
Intfiction is a room.
The description is "[link]I must go north at once[as]north[end link]!"

This should create a link with the text "I must go north at once" which will initiate an action to go north when clicked on. However, it erroneously uses "north" in both places.
