STE v3.32 - Download, released on 30 April 2011

I've added a new logo for STE (link to high-resolution image below), have improved version update notifications, and have made a bunch of usability changes that are intended to help you complete your editing faster and easier than ever before!

Mac OS X users now have a separate download to everyone else, which should act more like a native Mac application. However, there is still some work to be done on this.

Major features:

  • All new logo for STE! Download a high-resolution PNG of it here: http://t.co/iA42Ivc
  • Improved update notifications, including a button that opens STE website (mac, windows)

Enhancements:

  • "Settings" renamed to "Preferences"
  • Settings/Preferences dialog is 50% wider, which looks better in OS X. Will merge General and Appearance tab next release so that it looks great in Windows too.
  • Network tab removed from Settings/Preferences
  • Mac OS X: STE icon in the dock (wish) - temporarily using Jar Bundler
  • Mac OS X: Redo shortcut changed to ⇧⌘Z, Windows and Linux still use Ctrl+Y (wish)
  • If an import failed, the import dialog pops up again automatically after the error message (wish)
  • Added the ability to disable icons in the menu (comment)

Bug fixes:

  • Remember page name after Wikidot changes it during export (bug report)
  • Fixed crash when using Mac OS X dictionary (bug report)

Included page "inc:signature" does not exist (create it now)

OMG! This is AWESOME!

You actually got the STE icon working in the dock!!!

And what's this? Clicking “About STE” in the “STE” menu actually displays “v3.32” rather than “v1.0”…

And you fixed that bug!!!

WOWZERS!

:D

The "About STE" in the app menu should lead to my custom About dialog, but I haven't done that yet - so I just corrected the version number there for now and will fix it properly later.

I'm also planning to add a link to settings/preferences into the app menu to make it more consistent with other Mac apps, and making the shortcut ⌘, (command+comma) open the dialog as that seems to be the system default.

Also, dictionary bug still exists - pressing control+command+d in Mac OS X will still crash the application. see below

So it's a lot better, but more to do :)

ACTUALLY… command+control+d does not crash the app! XD It seems Jar Bundler fixed that problem. Yay!

Accidentally fixed a bug… can't say that's ever happened before.

(*Quickly edits change log and pretends it was my programming skills that fixed it… no-one will ever know the truth!*)

I just made a wish request… I was about to post a post saying:

Whilst the dictionary bug still exists, perhaps could you consider making this wish a priority?

But then you had to go and [consciously] fix the dictionary bug! So I guess the wish isn't so important anymore XD

I guess not! :) But it's still something I want to add - redundancy against any kind of unexpected crash is a good thing.
