Notecase Pro v3.4.5. has just been released

Downloads are now available at

Major changes in this release:

- option to setup Clipboard Monitoring to be started when the program starts (with optional custom target document/note)
- clipboard monitor now has an option to store all clips into a single note (if defined, it stores them directly into the parent note, else it creates a new note)
- support for using Web Proxy when checking for updates, opening from web and embedding images found in the pasted content (see "Network" page in the Options window)
- added basic authentication support for Web proxy
- add: Lua method to get the name of an note attachment (Nc_Note_Attach_Name_Get)
- add: Lua method to run the "Compact Document" action on a specified document (Nc_Doc_Compact)
- add: new Lua method to get the (per-document) setting for the backup folder (Nc_Config_BackUpFolder_Get)
- add: new Lua method to define a clipboard monitor target (Nc_Config_ClipboardMonitor_SetTarget)
- add: new Lua method to start/stop clipboard monitor (Nc_Config_ClipboardMonitor_Start)
- add: new Lua method to convert normal note to the clone (Nc_Note_NoteConvertToClone)
- add: new Lua method to get the folder used to store the configuration file (Nc_Config_ConfigDir_Get)
- add: new application event "Before note deleted" allowing the user to abort the operation using the new Lua method Nc_Event_BeforeNoteDelete_Abort
- add: new menu item "Custom Formatting" placed under "Notes" > "Properties" (context menu too) for quick access to custom note color/font formatting features
- fix: do not offer to load the alread-loaded document twice, just switch to the previous instance
- fix: modified recent script menu to include embedded scripts too in the list
- fix: when exporting a document as HTML with tree view, embedded picture having an umlaut in the name will not load correctly when the HTL is opened in Internet Explorer
- fix: when using a feature to unload encrypted document on inactivity, it was possible that only first such document got unloaded (it the user aborts the password entry for reloading the first unloaded doc.)
- fix: disable Clipboard Monitor action when copying from within the Notecase itself (can lead to unwanted results)
- fix: reordering notes with mouse drag in the Tree Pane gets stuck after going to List pane and back to Tree Pane (Linux fix, GTK for Windows still has a bug in tree reordering)
- fix: a number of items were missing an entry in the Shortcuts Editor window ("Add Marked Nodes to List", "Invert Marked Nodes", "Check New Version", "Clear List", "Join Marked Nodes", "Split Node", "View Attachments Pane", "View Tags Pane", "View Toolbar Audio", "Add Node to List", "List All Notes", "Delete Document")
- add: Audio options page has a presets list with hard-coded entries "Voice recording" and "HiFi recording" for quick setup of the common recording values
- Croatian translation updated
- Chinese Traditional translation updated (work by Richard Sun)
- Chinese translation updated (work by Stephen Zhu)
- Romanian translation updated (work by Alexandru Bogdan Munteanu)
- Italian translation updated (work by Fabio Iannone)
- German translation updated (work by Marcus Hennig)
- many other bug fixes
- deprecated following build targets: Ubuntu 9, Centos 5.5, Slackware tar.gz version and PCLinuxOS 2007 "no GnomeVfs used" builds

Important note: my plans are to deprecate Debian 5 and Fedora 13 builds unless there is someone using one of them.
Feel free to contact me if you are using one of those.
