I just pushed Firefly 0.4.1 to Rubygems. Updating is easy:

gem update firefly

Don’t forget to restart your server, that’s all.

The 0.4.1 release covers the following changes:

  • Normalize URLs before shortening them. This prevents false duplicates.
  • Validate URLs to be valid HTTP or HTTPS, don’t accept others. Closes #8
  • Don’t ask for the API key after shortening a URL with the bookmarklet.
  • Show the highlighted URL separately. Closes #7.

If you are interested in contributing to Firefly, please fork the project on github. Pull requests are very welcome.
