Back to Change History


This is an initial release to get feedback. Note carefully that many things may change. One that must be highlighted is how preferences are handled. I have not yet written the custom handler I plan, so I am using the default JVM preferences system. On Windows, this uses the registry and MAY WELL FAIL unless you have the correct registry keys set up. This is an issue with the JVM itself. As this will be resolved at a later stage and because it is not that simple a fix, I am not going to supply details. If you are happy to find out what is needed using your favourite search engine, then please feel free to go ahead.

I am particularly looking for feedback from non-Windows users. I have a Windows machine and a Linux machine, so really it is just Mac users I need to hear from.

This version of the program includes a feature to check online for new versions. Whilst noting the comment above, I do recommend turning on this preference.

Current status

Well... until the previous version, the program was relatively inert and hence stable. Now I have started "wiring up" the innards it is getting more crash-prone when you try to get it to do something. Hopefully I will start spotting problems before getting over-excited with new features and releasing untested...

This particular release, then, is mostly about fixing some bugs -- long-standing ones that were not previously being triggered for the most part. Switching between V3 and V4 dumps and importing kits from one into the other should work (again) now.
