So much for freezing the feature list… made a change to how custom tags work (so you will lose the three that you currently have set – sorry!) and that brought about a change to the toolbar/menu bar that I’ve been using (a new version with lots of internal changes) so here’s a new version with some new stuff…
If you’ve installed SharpMT 2.2 Beta 4, please uninstall this version and use Beta 5. Beta 5 includes the new help system and bug fixes that were part of the Beta 4 release and it has removed the pre-compilation enhancements that have proven to be problematic with the code base. Please uninstall Beta 4 and use Beta 5 in its place.
A friend of mine could be quoted as summing up a feature list of a 1.1 follow-up release to a 1.0 offering as “Now with error checking”. In the spirit of such a comment, I am happy to present to you 2.2 Beta 4: now with a help system.

After a number of sleepless nights (and foggy days) a new beta is ready. Main thing for this release is that SharpMT will only allow one instance of itself to run at a time now. The run-as-differnt-user for multiple blog support “hack” still works, though; only one instance can run per user. What this means is that if SharpMT is already running and your double click on an SMT draft or send data to SharpMT from an RSS Aggregator via the plug-in, it will open in a new tab in the already running window.

The major feature for this release will be integration with major RSS Aggregator applications. If you don’t know what an RSS Aggregator is, then you won’t much care about integration with one. If you do, then you might be interested in seeing what this integration will get you. There’s also a minor bug fix for people that have been using more than one Text Formatting filters and the Preview tab.

Release candidate #2! A couple more key things for this release in both the desktop and pocket version. I’ve also added a permalink to the Software page for both SharpMT projects. Lastly, unless someone finds something major, I plan to call this “done” on Friday (I have a new hard drive to install into this notebook and that will knock me out of commission for a day or two) and I’m looking forward to getting this release done.

Um, about that feature complete thing in Beta 3 – I might have lied. You see, up to now, this entire development cycle has been spent coding features for other people and, well… frankly, I was feeling left out, so the latest feature in SharpMT is for me! Also, I’ve opted not to re-package Pocket SharpMT for Beta 5 – that code base is stable, as far as I know.

SharpMT 2.1, and higher, ships with a US-English version of a Spell Checker, but it is extendable to include Canadian English and UK English. Download the Dictionary packs and unzip them into your SharpMT working directory and the next time you start SharpMT you will see two new options for these dictionaries in the Spell Check Options dialog. For more information on the installation process, please read the ReadMe.txt that comes in the ZIP file.

Oops. This round includes a list management system that works and the proper version stamp. (Imagine my surprise when my own software tells me there’s an update that I don’t know about.)
Everything else from Beta 3 still applies – this is just a version that tweaks the additions there.

A wise engineer once summed up a feature list of an application that was about to make its 1.1 release as “Now, with Error Checking.” 2.1 Beta 3 of SharpMT doesn’t have any additional error checking, but it now includes Spell Checking.

First, thank you! Thank you to all of the people that have donated money over the last week or so (and those of you long time readers that donated early on) because the collection hat is getting full – $65 to the happy land of spell checking for everyone. Beyond that, there’s a new beta available of both the desktop version and the Pocket PC version with some miscellaneous additions/fixes…

All sorts of goodies; all of them from user feedback (although I did put a spin on a couple of things here and there) so it should please a few people. There is one huge upgrade to the install process – huge in possible impact – because it now checks to see if version 1.1 of the .NET Framework is installed before letting SharpMT install itself. Please let me know if this causes a problem, i.e. if it tells you the Framework is missing even though you know it is installed.

I just upgraded to version 2.65 of MovableType and this is a test of SharpMT’s compatibility with it. Given the Change Log of this release of MT – and the fact that nothing in the XML-RPC layer has changed – I expect SharpMT to continue to work with MT without any code changes.

This an update to SharpMT and Pocket SharpMT 2.01 and 2.0. The 2.02 release makes a couple of minor fixes to the Upload Media dialog to both platforms and to the Edit-from-Server functionality for the desktop version – if you use either of these features you’ll want to get this update. The 2.02 version, which includes the fixes included in 2.01, can be installed over an existing 2.01 or 2.0 installation without any known issues.
