Notecase version 1.6.9 released

I've just released new version of Notecase.
I've had a good feedback from users and testers in the past period,
so this version features some important bug fixes.

Big thanks goes to Marcus Hennig for his help on testing Notecase, giving numerous quality suggestions and maintaining German translation. Marcus is also a new team member, he plans to help testing the application on the regular basis.

Additionally, I must thank the program translators. In this version several translations were updated.

So enjoy the new release (feedback is always welcome).
As said before, Pro version should be released in 4-5 days.

Notecase to be released soon

I plan to release new Notecase version in a next few days (Pro version will follow a week after). That's why I've updated and uploaded new translation template files (notecase.pot and notecase_pro.pot).

If you want to have complete translation for your favorite language in the next release, now is your chance.

I plan to use blog posts to notify of new releases in the future too, so you'll be able to track the need to update translation through the RSS.

It's been a while since the last post. After releasing new version of both Notecase and Notecase Pro, there were some issues with the code that required quick fixes and new release posted.

Now that the "crisis" is over, I've turned to the brave new features.

I've noticed that Notecase Pro version loads the new database format (.ncdb) slower than it should. After some profiling and a lot of tweaks in various places, the new results are spectacular! New fixes benefit the other document formats as well!

My test .ncdb document with 6411 nodes now loads in 2 seconds instead of 9 (as was before).
Load time for the same document in .ncd format fell from 27 to 4 seconds.

If that does not sound spectacular listen to this: load time for the another .ncd document having 31000 nodes fell down from 338 to just 10 seconds !

Off course, having changed so much code will require detailed testing.
