Another small FocusWriter release

I made a small bugfix release of FocusWriter, version 1.6.7. I fixed a few minor issues: the printing now no longer adds extra indenting; the window margin of the themes respects 1-pixel margins again; and finally the background of the text area is no longer incorrectly scaled on HiDPI displays. Enjoy!

More releases!

I just realized I forgot to announce the releases I made at the beginning of the month! Oops. This poor, neglected blog.

I updated all of my projects, and for the most part it was a very minor release that fixed an installation bug in Linux or updated the translations. Of course, FocusWriter had a few more fixes than the rest, but that is to be expected as it is a much more complicated program. And Tanglet actually had a feature release, thanks to Markus Enzenberger. If you have not yet updated, enjoy!

Minor Whisker Menu release

Not much to announce here, because there were only two small bugs fixed in my newest Whisker Menu release, version 1.7.2 (and version 2.1.2 for those using GTK+3). Both bugs were related to the category names turning off, so it is an important but small release. Enjoy!

Small FocusWriter release

I made a small bugfix release of FocusWriter, version 1.6.4. This release mainly fixes issues with backgrounds on HiDPI displays. As I don’t have such a display myself, I did not notice these issues during development. Please enjoy!

Tiny, but important, Kapow release

I have made a very small bugfix release of Kapow, version 1.5.2. The only change is that reports now properly handle commas in the totals, so for all non-English speakers it should now report the correct values. Enjoy!

Releases galore!

Over the past week and a half, I have made releases for all of my projects. Most of them were pretty minor, and just amounted to updating the translations (and fixing an issue where the Qt-supplied translations were not being properly loaded). Packagers will now need to depend on lrelease, because I no longer include the precompiled binary .qm files.

The projects with actual feature releases were CuteMaze, Hexalate, Tanglet, and Tetzle. For the most part, the features added will not be obvious unless you have a 4K monitor, because the biggest thing I added was support for high-DPI displays. I did also finish moving my projects to be Qt 5 only, and to use C++11.

As usual, report any issues you have. Enjoy!

Another FocusWriter release!

I just made a bugfix release of FocusWriter, version 1.6.1. This release has fixes for a few issues, primarily with OOXML files. They solve data loss, so if you are using FocusWriter with OOXML files I recommend you update immediately. The other fixes are much more minor, but still nice to have. Enjoy!

A new Kapow release!

And another project rises from the ashes like a phoenix: I have finally made a new feature release of Kapow, version 1.5.0! There are not a whole lot of user-visible changes, but some very important code cleanup happened. The most noticeable changes are that you can now start, stop, or cancel sessions by right-clicking on the sidebar. It also prevents you from removing a project that has a timer running in a subproject. Enjoy!

And finally … a new FocusWriter!

I am pleased to announce a new feature release of FocusWriter, version 1.6.0! It has been a long time coming. Anyway, new in this release are a few things that I know people will be very happy about: I relented and merged code that allows you to always show the user interface. I also added support for headings, so you can make your chapter titles bigger than the rest of your text. And quite a bit of behind-the-scenes work went into adding support for high DPI displays (which I don’t happen to have, so if my testing missed some things, let me know).

I also added four new themes! I don’t want to overload the install with too many themes, but I always felt the selection was a bit lacking. The original themes are still provided, of course, but they are now complemented by:

Bitter Skies

Spy Games

Go forth and enjoy!

New Whisker Menu!

I am happy to announce that I have finally at long last made a new feature release of Whisker Menu, version 1.6.0! There aren’t a whole lot of new features, but that is because the menu is pretty much complete at this point. Some of the features have been sitting in git for quite a long time now (oops), like the ability to navigate categories using the arrow keys. Another new feature is the option to show tooltips on the application launchers. I also tweaked the search results to put results from favorites and recent before the rest.

I have also released version 2.0.0, which is a like-for-like port to GTK+ 3. There are no new features, just the requisite code changes to support a newer version of GTK+. I have been using the GTK+ 3 port for a while now, and for me it works just fine. It may be a while before users have it, though, because the dependencies are very new. I’m also not going to maintain backported libraries, so I will still be building GTK+ 2 packages for now.

If you have any issues, please report them. I cannot fix bugs that I do not know about. Anyway, enjoy the updated menu!
