Busy few days bug chasing and adding new features
Bugs are funny things. No matter how much you test a program you can be sure that there is some one out there with a computer set up in such a way that your program won’t work! And ever so often a user will say ‘does your program do X?’ or ‘it would be great if it did Y’, and you think ‘why didn’t I think of that!’ (if you have some idea, or bug reports, please send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com)
So a round up:
mailMaker: Added support for export to PowerMail. Also caught a really nasty bug which was causing the program to crash for some users on Mac OS X 10.2 to 10.2.8. There is also another weird bug that I haven’t been able to solve. It appears that if Toast is installed, and the default e-mail program is not running, then mailMaker cannot send the messages to the e-mail program.
JPEGCleaner: No bugs to deal with but support has been added for importing jfif files and exporting as jpeg.
iCalMaker: Added some new features such as support for the export of iCal "invitations" direct to Apple Mail, Eudora, Microsoft Entourage, Mailsmith and PowerMail, and direct support for the export of iCal files to PowerMail. Also caught a number of bugs.
- some problems with the import of tab- and comma-delimited files
- problems with unicode text not to be exported correctly to iCal
- some repeat events not to being correctly formated in vCal (Palm) export
- solved a problem that was causing the return and delete keys from working as advertised
- have all been squashed!
Also, corrected some broken links in the ‘Help System’.
