  1. Around the web

    This Matrix abridged script has already been linked to by lots of people, but it is quite funny. NetNewsWire 1.0.3 is out of beta. The ‘Combined View’ is alredy good and hopefully getting better. LineBreak is a small utility that converts the line breaks in text files to/from Mac, Unix, DOS. It is a simple…

  2. Loading Folders Revamped

    I’ve been working on changing the way loading folders of photos works. In the next beta, while you are loading a folder there will be a status bar and a cancel button. This should fix the browser timeout issues as well. I’m also re-using the already created thumbnail images when the photos are saved to…

  3. More on the Combined View in NetNewsWire

    A couple of follow-up wishlist items for the Combined View in NetNewsWire: Option-clicking on one of the disclosure triangles should toggle all of the items in the current view open/closed (like the finder does with folders). When using the space bar to go to the next unread item, I’d like the next unread item to…

  4. 800 Downloads of photos 3.5b2 so far

    There have been over 800 downloads of photos 3.5b2 so far, and I have yet (‘yet’ being the key word) to receive an email about a problem due to a configuration error. I guess the configuration check I added is working and people are fixing any configuration problems they had and are happily using the…

  5. Bug Reports and Mobile Version

    I got a bug report on tasks 1.6 – sure enough I had a mistake in one of the strings in the translation file. I’ve fixed it for all of the languages and will release it along with a new language, Catalan. I’ve had that bug in there for a month, during which time I’ve…

  6. (Lack of) Accesskey Support in Camino

    My main annoyance with Camino is that there is no ‘accesskey’ support. This is the ability to access controls on a web page using the keyboard. In tasks and photos I have a number of keyboard shortcuts to make it faster to use and navigate the applications. These don’t work in Camino, which I use…

  7. New NetNewsWire Beta

    I installed the new NetNewsWire beta; the ‘Combined View’ is very good. My wish list for this feature: An icon on the toolbar to allow you to change to this view easily (although I doubt I’ll leave it) An option to automagically collapse entries after they’ve been read An easier keyboard shortcut for collapsing all…

  8. photos 3.5 b2 released

    I’ve released photos version 3.5 beta 2. This includes several bug fixes, a built-in configuration check and additional search capability. Check out the version history to see a full list of changes (at least the ones I remembered to write down). I made changes to the database again, so you have to run the database…

  9. Timeout Issue

    Over the last week, I’ve gotten several e-mails directly and several in the photos Yahoo! Group regarding browser timeout issues. Most often, people experiencing this have been using Safari which has a 60 second timeout. When loading a folder of images, it will often take longer than 60 seconds and Safari will stop waiting at…

  10. tasks 1.6 released

    I’ve released tasks version 1.6. This is the first full release with localization and includes 10 languages. Here is a quick list of changes from 1.5.3: Features: Includes translations to: Dutch English French German Italian Korean Japanese Romanian Russian Traditional Chinese Posting to Moveable Type blogs Live update of breadcrumbs is an option Now includes…
