Tick, Tick, Tick and Conditional Features.

I’ve put the user side of StrokePlay to one side today and instead concentrated on a mixture of release and administration steps.

The website “holding” page is now live on the actual StrokePlay Pro Website. Previously this linked to a more general page on my company website.

StrokePlay Pro now has a facebook page; the Free Trial build is now included in the daily builds; all binaries now automatically get digitally signed and time-stamped during the build and the initial steps for the automatic Inno Setup installer builds were started.

I also started putting in the conditional compilation steps to customise the feature list between the Free Trial and Full versions of the application.  I took this a little further and put code in place to remove items like menu options rather than just grey them out.  No point in creating work for myself when Free Trial users start to wonder why they can’t use greyed out options and start e-mailing support.

Putting up the facebook page was something I had to think about.  Not because I had doubts about a presence on facebook but because for the first time StrokePlay is open to friends and family to take a peek at.

So if all you facebook friends and family have been wondering what I’ve been up to for the past while, this is it!
