NANY 2009 Release: LifeSaver diary

<< < (5/12) > >>

On my computer the dates are black text on dark blue (see screenshot) - not easy to read.

Thanks. Tomos reported something similar, but I didn't quite get it. Now I can see for myself.

I'll see what I can do.

actually I figured out this here -

dou you know the way in titlebars in classic style it (often) uses two tones - well LS uses the lighter of those colours for the month background and for the days -
in my case this is a very pale blue which makes the days of the weeek almost impossible to read

NANY 2009 Release: LifeSaver diary

edit: thumbnailed image

I think I've got the calendar color thing licked, and at the same time, I did a lot to improve the overall look.

I've implemented Delete, and in doing so discovered that there's a problem with the backend datastore I'm using  :-[. So I'm going to have to disable the Delete feature until that gets fixed. I've submitted a bug, hopefully they'll address it quickly.

Working on the XML export now, and the MRU file menu. That, and fixing the refresh issues that were reported, and I should be there.

New version posted: 1.0.3277.22049

I'm calling this one a beta. All the planned features for launch are included except for MRU file menu. I think I've got the calendar sync issues ironed out, but there may be some ghosts still hiding in the machine. The Delete functionality was implemented, but I found an issue in the backend datastore that forces me to disable the feature for now.

From the change log:

* Add XML export
* Add ability to open a file from Explorer
* Fixed calendar colors (I hope)
* Added a bunch of graphics to make it pretty
* Added Delete, then disabled it because of a problem in the backend datastore
* Fixed the need to click away from the text editor to get changes to save
* Improved synchronization between entry date editor and calendar selector (there may still be issues here, I'm still chasing it)
* Fixed a bug in the browse to Previous feature (sometimes entries would be skipped when occurring on consecutive days)
From known issues list:

* Installing an upgrade requires that you first uninstall the previous one.
* Delete entry not allowed yet.
* Reported refreshing problem when opening a diary having an entry for the current day

This looks awesome.  I can't wait to see what it looks like finished.  Okay, I am trying the Alpha, but I have also learned that Alphas (and occasionally Betas) find issues late in development that force changes to make it not compatible, so I tend not to trust important data to it until release.

Right you are. As I mentioned, I found an issue in the datastore such that deleting entries corrupt the data. In this case, I've disabled the feature pending resolution from the Neodatis ODB people (which is otherwise fantastic), but who knows what else might lurk.
