Better and Better

I’ve been a tad quiet on the blogging front recently.  It’s not a reflection on the lack of work going on – exactly the opposite, it’s a reflection of the large volume of work going on.

First up, I’ve been playing around with Trello as a day to day way of tracking tasks and change.  It’s pretty good and it’ll be one to watch as it develops and matures.  But, as a day to day tool it’s ease of use is hard to beat.

MiniHomer – my future Max/iPhone/iEverything Mac Mini – is now fully up and running, complete with an Xcode development environment.  I’ve been playing around with it, but nothing serious.

On StrokePlay, release 1.1.1 is shaping up very well.  Strangely, this is a bigger release than 1.1 was but then again, 1.1 was all about stability and making it DPI aware.  The DPI awareness was a big change and so merited the 1.1 moniker.

A preview of 1.1.1 contents:

  • New “All Courses” data filter
  • Complete redesign of the scorecard entry dialog
  • Auto-addition of a new course to the player’s course list
  • Additional “Getting Started” instructions in the help
  • Some smaller bug fixes, including the correction of painting issues on the “My Scores” group box, retaining font settings for the scorecard and course notes after StrokePlay closes, ensuring the overall round note saves correctly.
  • Refactoring of the colour scheme handling to make it all centrally managed to allow for multi-theme support in a future release.

So, not a minor release after all.
