I've been a bit busy with the details of purchasing a new house. I haven't realized how many little details need to be taken care of before construction even starts! Needless to say, it looks like we are very close to getting the paperwork done. I'm excited because the new house will have gigabit ethernet as part of the construction, and I'm getting my own office with a door!

So on to PainlessSVN. I finally nailed the Windows service detecting code. Here's an early screenie of what this looks like:

My next step is to do this detection across the network into a remote computer/server.

I had a user alert me of a UI issue that was preventing him from using the new global configuration file feature. I uploaded version 1.0.2 to take care of this issue.

Here is a list of changes:

NEW

  • Install script now has update logic. Don't need to uninstall previous version.

FIX

  • UI logic was preventing the usage of the global configuration file functionality.
  • Install script will now correctly install into the C:\Program Files\x86 directory in 64bit systems.

Please go to the PainlessSVN Downloads page to get it.

I just uploaded this update. Come and get it!

Here's what's new:

NEW

  • Added the ability to specify file patters naming conventions.
  • Added the ability to omit boundary lines from the chunk files when using regular expressions and text boundaries.
  • Added the ability to use the boundary lines as chunk file names. This only works when used with regular expression boundary check.

CHANGED

  • Added a tabbed control to better organize the split by choices.

I'm working on the next version of Text File Splitter. I got a nifty feature implemented, that was requested a couple weeks ago. You can now use a pattern to name your text file chunks.

The blue bold text is a live preview of the parsed file name pattern. So far I have 4 tokens that can be used to name your file to your liking:

  • [FILENAME] - The name of the file without the extension
  • [SEQUENCE:0] - The file chunck number. Each 0 is a placeholder for a digit.
  • [DATE:format] - This will allow you to add a date in the format that you specify.
  • [EXT] - The file's extension.

The reset button just resets it to the default format.

I was installing one of my new 1 tb drives on my system at home. I went ahead and moved all my virtual machines to this new drive. While doing this, I found that I had downloaded a VMWare image from the Mono Project. This has Mono 2.0.1 and Suse 11.0. Since I was wide awake from my migraine medication, I decided to see if could still compile SVNManagerLib on Linux. To my delight, MonoDevelop compiled it fine, without any errors. Here's a screeshot fo SVNManagerLib compiled in MonoDevelop 1.0 running in Suse 11.0:

And here is a screenshot of the TestHarness winform app compiled successfully as well:

And here is the TestHarness running from MonoDevelop:

This is soooo cool! I just downloaded the zip file from the CodePlex page at www.codeplex.com/svnmanagerlib I clicked on the Source tab, then downloaded the last changeset. It worked without any changes to the source. This is the library that powers PainlessSVN and SVN Backup Widget.

Now I just need to find a good tutorial on how to install Subversion in Suse 11. I'm a total n00b when it comes to Linux, and none of the How-To docs out there have helped me here. Anybody has a good resource for installing Subversion in Suse 11?

I got my hands on Windows 7 Beta 1. It is extremely fast, even in beta state. I installed it into a VMWare image. It initially had 512 mb of RAM. It ran, but it was "stuttering" a lot. I upped the ram to 1 gig, and it is running pretty good now. Here are some screenshots:

This is what you see when Windows 7 is starting. I cropped it so that it would fit on the blog. It is actually animated. The picture above is what is left after the animation is done.

Here's the login screen. It looks just like the Vista logon screen.

This is what is on the left side of the Taskbar. There's the start button, just like in Vista. The next 3 icons appear by default. It's pretty hard to know what is a shortcut, or what is a running app. I hope that Microsoft fixes that. And yes, that's PainlessSVN running.

Here's the right side of the Taskbar. I really don't like how the real estate is being used for the tray bar. Unfortunately, I can't think of a better way of handling this.

PainlessSVN running in Windows 7! I'm extremely happy that it runs without problems. The take away here is that your hard work in making your app Vista ready, will payoff with Windows 7.

I'll see if I can post more Windows 7 screenshots, as I play with it.

I am happy to announce that PainlessSVN 1.0.1 is now ready for general consumption. Here is a list of what is in this update:

NEW

  • Payment is now done by FastSpring
  • Global configuration file support
  • The new information panel for the Subversion server
  • Realms - View Only

FIX

  • Bugfixes for a few UI issues
  • Fixed licensing to support new scheme

Please uninstall version 1.0.0 before installing this update.

I have reset the 30 day trial, so everybody that had 1.0.0 can test this for another 30 days.

I'm holding a sale until January 31, 2009. PainlessSVN will be 50% off until then. That means that you can get buy it for $24.97. International customers should now be able to use their own currency.

There's a small issue on Vista 64, where the installation will not use the C:\Program Files (x86)\SystemWidgets folder. It will install on C:\Program Files. I tested this on Windows Vista Ultimate 64, and on Windows 2008 Server 64 and it is working fine. Apparently, Vista is doing some dodgy stuff. This is non-standard behavior, and Microsoft is aware of it.

I decided to release an interim version before 1.1 so that I can push something out to the community. I'm going to release version 1.0.1, hopefully no later than Monday the 5th of January. This will include the following:

  • New licensing
  • Global configuration file support
  • Bugfixes for a few UI issues
  • The new information panel for the Subversion server
  • Realms - View Only

I'm going to be conducting a sale for the whole month of January. You won't need a coupon for this sale. I'm going to be cutting the price to $24.97, which is 50% off. This sale will last until January 31, 2009. Then the price will revert back to $49.95

One thing that I'm very excited about is that customers will be able to pay using their own currency. Look for this graphic on the top right of the store/purchase pages:

I have been working with Ken White over at FastSpring to setup a payment gateway and online store. I'm happy to say that this is finally done. I just finished the last bit on their side and hooked it up with my site today.

I'm hoping to have the part on my website done by Monday. The store link is already wired up, but I will not show it to the public until I get PainlessSVN working with the new license settings. The only thing left on my site is to wire up the buy buttons to the new URLs.
