« Thread started on: Jun 16th, 2014, 5:17pm »

I've just uploaded v8.0a of Stickies.

Some of the more significant changes are full Unicode support, a new data file format, Stacks and images in text stickies.

However, the full list of changes is as follows:

New features

  • Images can be inserted into text stickies
  • Stacks for desktop stickies
  • Friendly name hyperlinks
  • Periodic automatic full backups
  • Properties dialog added for all stickies in all categories
  • Screen grab directly to an image sticky
  • Skin browser dialog
  • Stored sticky category icons
  • Image undo levels can be configured
  • Restore from backup
  • 'Solo' a sticky to work with just that one
  • Option to offset screen position of new stickies to prevent overlap
  • New image editing operations: rotate, greyscale, invert, flip, mirror, border, blur, jitter, flood fill, border
  • Configurable tab stops
  • Feature to move data file location
  • Save image stickies as JPG
  • Show recurring parent
  • Default note content files for text and image notes


Changes


  • Stickies is now fully Unicode, supporting all languages throughout
  • Stored stickies retain many more attributes, like create time, position, read only, source
  • New data storage format, RTF split into seperate files, settings, options and friends into their own files
  • 'Rescue offscreen' command now also fixes the Manage dialog
  • Manage dialog has been optimised, and so is less 'flickery'
  • Hotkey functionality built into the exe file, the dll is no longer required
  • Text desktop note contents can be edited in the Manage dialog
  • Hold shift while attaching a sticky to attach it relative to the postion of the window
  • Option to disable RTL shortcut keys
  • All tray icons can now be changed
  • Choose a place to create a new store category when storing a sticky
  • 'Set all' checkbox on the Recurring dialog
  • -rescue command line parameter added
  • Default text hilight colours made a little less harsh, users can now change them
  • Title items on menus are now bold, not grey
  • All numeric values in Options have spin controls
  • At startup, the stickies.exe path is checked for data files as well as the CWD
  • Maximum size of stickies raised to 614,400
  • Image sticky pen now shrinks to single pixel width
  • All icons changed to include an alpha-channel
  • Shift-context menu key opens the content menu, not the sticky menu
  • Removed: recover dialog
  • Removed: Palm and PPC support
  • Removed: -registry, -recover, -norecover command line parameters
  • Removed: import/export store categories in Manage


Fixes

  • User values (user1/2/3) are now correctly initialised for new notes
  • Bug when moving a note from Stores to Closed to Desktop fixed
  • Sending from a Stored category to the Desktop no longer decrements the count by two
  • After choosing the pen colour, the original input focus is restored
  • Paste buttons on skins can now convert a RTF note to an image note
  • New notes set to appear in the center of the screen now do so correctly
  • WM_QUERYENDSESSION messages handled
  • Fixed English text "Snooze alarm for X minutes" fixed
  • .sti file loading no longer affected by setting an incoming network style
  • On-top setting is no longer lost by using the menu to set another note not-on-top

Tom,

Thanks so much for V8. My favorite new feature is the ability to create stacks which act like folders for sticky notes on my desktop. Wicked!

Tom am I going loopy? I downloaded 8.0a from home this morning. Went to grab it from work and it seems to be back to v7.0x on the download page?

Wait one minute - yes it's happened again - a few hours after release, someone reports a new bug...

So, I've cheated and upped the fixed build, but left the version the same. If you want to know whether the exe you have has the fixes, check the exe properties. 8.0.1.0 is the original upload, 8.0.1.1 is the new one.

There were problems around the icon set by associating .sti files with Stickies, and also with loading in .sti files - those are the things fixed.
