Release Notes

Although I originally intended not to add any more features for the 1.0 release when I released Beta 1, there are nevertheless some additions in Beta 2.
There are no serious bugs I know of in this beta, so I hope to be able to release the final version of 1.0 soon.
If you find a bug, please report it. You can either use the Issue Tracker here on Codeplex or this form.

If yaTDL is already installed on your computer, you might have to remove it before you can install the new version.

Changes since Beta 1

yaTDL

  • Aero Glass effects can now be enabled and disabled without restarting the program.
  • Aero Glass will now automatically be removed if it is not available any more.
  • If you hover over a Project in the project-list, the Project’s name will be shown in a tooltip. This is useful if the name of the Project requires more space than the space that is available in the project-list.
  • Fixed a severe bug that caused the data to be read wrong from disk if there was more than one Project stored in the TaskStore.txt file.
  • A splash screen has been added.
  • Some parts of the program have been rewritten and the number of dependencies between object could be reduced by the use of events.
  • All animations can now be turned off, but in order to do this, you will have to modify the yaTDL.exe.config file manually, because there is no UI to do this, yet. However I don’t think turning off animations will be necessary very often.
  • The task-list will be loaded smarter. If a Task changed, only this task will be loaded and not the entire task-list. Because of this, Tasks that are currently being edited will stay in editing-mode even if another Task in the same Project is modified, added or deleted.
  • If a new Task is added, it will automatically be switched to editing-mode.
  • If the application crashes, a the error-message will not only be displayed, but will also be saved in a file located in %AppData%\yaTDL\CrashReports\
  • Various smaller bugs have been fixed.
  • If a currently selected Project is deleted, the Project next to it in the project-list will be selected automatically.
  • The main window can now be drag-moved by clicking in the entire Aero Glass area.
  • The user will now have to confirm the deletion of a Project or a Task.
  • The “About” dialog has been rewritten and will also display additional information about a version, if such information is available (e.g. Beta 2) now.
  • The due date displayed in the task-list is now much more reliable and should update every time the day is over.
  • In addition to its size, the main-window’s state (Normal/Maximized) and its position on screen will be saved now.

WPFAeroWizard

  • Parts of the WPFAeroWizard library have been rewritten, which simplified the creation of wizards a lot.
  • The wizard now fully supports Aero, Aero Basic and Classic Themes and will switch between the different themes at runtime, if the selected Windows Theme is changed.
  • Code originally taken from “WPF Twitter” has been replaced with code from “Amuse” (http://amuse.codeplex.com)
  • Various bugs have been fixed.
