Hello,
I was wondering if manifest_version 2 is in the roadmap? I am trying to use this great extension to build another tool, but I ran into challenges with the manifest version as Google is not allowing new extensions of manifest version 1.

Google will soon remove support for it completely in Jul and Aug timeframe: http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/manifestVersion.html

I was trying to make the relevant changes by updating manifest.json, moving all scripts to external .js files, and moving inline calls (such as onload="init()") as a Listener.

However, I had challenges with the flatter dependency as that is an inline script dynamically injected. The new Content Security Policies do not seem to support inline scripts. I will continue to explore but if you are already working on manifest version 2 then I can stand by (or try to help).

I didn't start yet but its in my roadmap "soon". I'm already porting other extension so it shouldn't be too hard I hope.
