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

This version has all the existing UI components "wired up" - just the non-existent "Global" tab to go. Once more, version has also been substantially rewritten... partly to remove a rather glaring breakage of tabbing between fields. It does also include a rewrite of the code I rewrote for the last version, so do please expect the same raised chance of bugs.

Getting the "Global" tab finished is next and then I will be doing more extensive testing (also known as using the software for real...).
