Bug fix time for SharpMT: five major (or at least very visible) bugs have been addressed for this release. Download SharpMT 2.0 Beta 3 and read the FAQ for more information.
What’s been fixed? Mostly visual stuff, actually. The first is a bug that addressed the problem of SharpMT being minimized to the system tray and then never being able to be restored – it now works as it’s supposed to. Previous Draft is now spelled correctly under the Window menu. There was also a bug with XP’s themes not being applied to certain controls – this was fixed by setting a particular property on all of the controls that needed it: group boxes, buttons, labels, and a couple of others. All controls that are theme-able are now active.
Also, there was the bug/complaint about Drafts being set as “changed” after a post (and the “Posted” flag was set) – this is now fixed. After the post is successful, and the flag is set, the Draft is saved an extra time. Basically, the issue should disappear in this beta.
Lastly, when categories are refreshed from the server they are now sorted alphabetically in the list and stored that way. The next time you refresh the list you’ll see this – Drafts automatically pick up the new list order so there’s no need to change them. [Basically, to make this change, click Update Categories one time.] The old category order (where they were sorted by MT using the numeric value) is no longer supported.
Keep them bugs a-comin please!
