Notecase Pro v4.5.2 desktop edition released

Downloads are now available at

This is a bug fix release with some performance improvements.

Major changes in this release:
- fix: show error message when audio recording/playing is not working
- fix: Link Properties window did not initialize note target on a link targeting external document note
- fix: hyperlink to note of an external document does not work correctly if the document was already loaded
- fix: bolding a text caused a bold formatting to "leak" from the applied range until the end of the note (rare case, reported by user)
- fix: on initial install, going to General Settings and closing it immediately with OK causes text view font to have 1 pixel size (macOS only)
- fix: pasting from NYT article caused images to be duplicated, because each image was declared within tag and an additional
tag (now ignored)
- add: Lua method to show/hide the display of current document path within the main window title bar (Nc_GUI_MainWindowTitle_ShowDocPath)
- fix: remove sqlite compile time flag (SQLITE_OMIT_TEMPDB) causing issues with ncdb file format updates (SQL table renames)
- fix: hyperlink internal handling refactored to correctly accept links spanning both text and images
- 32% faster document saving operation for .ncd/.nce file format (as measured on a big test file)
- add: pressing Alt when menu bar is hidden, brings menu bar back to being visible
- fix: if paste operation fails to access clipboard, internally retry several times (Windows clipboard can be locked by other process)
- created installer for Windows GTK 3.x edition
- fix: initial selected note may not be recorded in the browsing history
- fix: history buttons on toolbar may not be correctly enabled in some cases
- add: new build for Freebsd 12.1
- help file updates (work by Paul Merrell)

For detailed change list see:

Note that the Windows XP compatible build has been removed due to issues with building it (newer Visual Studio does not support this target anymore).
Builds that are being deprecated (let me know if you need them):
 - Raspbian 2012 (replaced with Raspbian 2019)
 - Ubuntu 14.04 (end of life April 2020)
 - Ubuntu 18.10 (end of life July 2019)
 - Ubuntu 19.04 (end of life January 2020)
 - Ubuntu 19.10 (end of life July 2020)

I plan to add Fedora 32 and Ubuntu 20.04 packages once the distros are released.
