DataFox 1.9.5 Released

Announcing the release of DataFox 1.9.5, with:

  • Support for, thanks to Rohit Singh for the help. The “charged usage” is displayed as 0, (at least for his account) and this is the value DataFox uses to display the progress; so if your account has this same problem, you will not see a progress bar at all and the surplus calculations will be off. Hopefully BSNL fixes this problem soon. If you manually enter in the domain field, DataFox might work for that too because they appear to use the same backend. Unfortunately, because nobody has sent me their credentials, I have been unable to test this or add support if required.
  • Increased Firefox compatibility range to 15 – I don’t want to be forced to release a new version every couple of months with these monthly major version changes.

As always, if you want support for the selfcare portals, please send me your credentials or I have no way of implementing support and I will have to simply ignore and / or delete your comments.

DataFox 1.9.2 Released

DataFox 1.9.2 adds support for the modifications made to the site a month or two ago. Support for the selfcare sites is not available in this version, I need selfcare site credentials (please email me). This version will also work with Firefox 4 beta 1.

Unfortunately, there were two issues in DataFox 1.9.1 released to earlier today; there was a data unit problem where a gigabyte value was incorrectly assumed as a megabyte value (if only BSNL really did that when calculating usage ;)) and I accidentally removed the DataFox update URL from version 1.9.1. Any users who updated to 1.9.1 will not receive any update notifications :(. If you did not install 1.9.1, you should see an update for 1.9.2 via the regular update mechanism, if you did install 1.9.1, simply go to the DataFox page and manually install version 1.9.2 to fix the problem (you will see subsequent updates as well).

Also, for users clamoring for Chrome support, DataFox for Chrome has been available for a couple of months now and includes this fix.

DataFox 1.7.5 Released

I spent this afternoon getting DataFox 1.7.5 ready for release; this version is a minor update, fixing changes in the portal which rendered version 1.7 defunct. I also used the opportunity to correct the max version, so DataFox will now work with the all Firefox 3.5 installations. Enjoy!

Note: The AMO version will be updated next week

DataFox 1.7 Released

I finally had some time to polish off version 1.7 of DataFox, something which had been quite ready for a few weeks, but hadn’t been tested yet. Special thanks to Apoorv for testing the Delhi code as well as surfacing some important OS X bugs. Props to Vrushank Desai for the MTNL credentials I needed.

New in version 1.7:

  • Support for ( still works as well for 117.* series users).
  • Support for MTNL Bombay users with ‘@’ usernames.
  • New {rX} variable contains the remaining amount of transfer for the current month.

Will be pushed to AMO (still has version 1.5) later this week, the review process usually takes awhile. Enjoy!

DataFox and BSNL’s New Portal

BSNL's Latest Portal

Apparently not happy with their usage monitoring portal (or due to technical inability), almost a year ago BSNL started redirecting new customers (with IPs in the range 117.*.*.*) to a new portal where they could check their usage –

I updated DatatFox and released version 1.4 to take care of this, everything seemed to be working fine until around a month ago; when they released yet another portal.  Now 117.* users may (that’s right, may) be redirected to automatically when they try to go to; this is another completely different portal, one which DataFox cannot currently handle. One of my users reported that sometimes he is sent to the old new portal, and sometimes to the new new portal, WTF?

Whenever I try though, I do not get redirected, and have therefore been unable to take a crack at the new portal. I’m also very busy with work right now, so have had no time to look into this further. It will take me at least a couple of weeks to get back on this problem (along with an update for MTNL users). In the meanwhile, if you have any additional info on this subject, please leave a comment, email me or join the discussion here.
