UpdateListener

This article is in need of a technical review.

An UpdateListener receives messages from an update check for a single add-on, though it is possible to pass the same UpdateListener to as many calls to Addon.findUpdates() as you like. For each individual update check, the following methods will be called on the listener:

Method Overview

void onCompatibilityUpdateAvailable(in Addon addon)
