Project donation

I've been pleasantly surprised few days ago by Daniel Hertrich. He wanted to show his support for the Notecase project and he bought me a DVD title from my Amazon wish list

Thank you Daniel!

Daniel is currently the person who reported a highest number of bug reports, and he made some very cool feature suggestions. The next Notecase release will definitely profit by his great work.

He is also a member of a growing sub-community of Notecase users, the ones that run it on Sharp Zaurus!

Zaurus seems like a really cool machine. It is small, portable, and yet it can run Linux (using pdaXrom or similar X11 based ROM for Sharp Zaurus). I don't own one of these, but I am seriously tempted :)

BTW, Daniel has some great plans for Zaurus. Through his company named Hermocom, he plans to make a full-featured Zaurus/Linux based platform, composed of some chosen open-source programs.

In his words, Notecase is one of the main software components of this project. It will allow the user to record brainstormings and organize ideas. Or, with its HTML export feature, it will allow to record meeting notes and directly, after the meeting, create handouts for the attendants in professional looking HTML format.

You can read more details of this project (named "weeXpc") on his website.

Notecase bugfixes

It's been a few days after the new release (v1.2.6) and I've got few bug reports from the users. The result is the new pre-release code (and the Windows .exe file) waiting for you at http://notecase.sf.net/temp/

Detailed change log can be found within the source code archive (inside docs/help.ncd file).

BTW, if you are interested in the latest sources, take a look at the address above from time to time.
