Foxmarks 1.0.1 Available for Testing

We're pleased to announce that Foxmarks 1.0.1 is now available for testing. What's more, we feel that Foxmarks is now sufficiently stable and reliable to merit a 1.0 version number. If it continues to prove itself in the field, we'll release this build to Mozilla for deployment on the add-ons site next week.

Perhaps the most significant addition in this release is a defensive one: if your bookmarks disappear on you (for any of a host of reasons, none of them related to Foxmarks), Foxmarks will now detect that disappearance instead of slavishly syncing your unintentionally slimmed-down set to the server and from there on to your other computers. If Foxmarks detects that some kind of foul play has transpired, it slams on the brakes and requires that you confirm before synchronization continues.

So... happy syncing! As always, please let us know if you see any odd behavior.
