ViewMyCurrency 0.386 (alpha) released

Thursday, 2nd February at 6:25 pm 3 comments

This release fixes many bugs and adds a welcome popup after successful install as many new users didn’t realise that ViewMyCurrency was installed or that there was a right-click menu.

  • Added: welcome popup after successful install.
  • Added: Web Update starts automatically after 30 seconds, on failure it doubles the interval and then tries again
  • Added: if init from preferences fails (due to user hand-editing the settings) then run setup wizard again rather than just dying horribly.
  • Added: warning tooltip if install failed that includes version number to aid bug reporting.
  • Fix: Choice of web-service is now stored in preferences
  • Changed: If conversion cannot be performed the error is highlighted with ‘???’
  • Fix: stupid bug in previous alpha that broke automatic page conversion
  • Fix: bug in previous alpha that broke right-click Convert Text
  • Changed: use non-breaking spaces between currency symbol and number. Thanks Simon!
  • Fix: exchange rates were being lost after changing currencies (during install for example)
  • Fix: Lists correctly use comma and ‘and’. This should reduce user confusion. Thanks Simon!

Please let me know if you notice any irritating problems. I’m planning to submit a new version to Mozilla Update soon if I get good feedback on this.

    It is on me, or the wizard can’t activate the “next” button?

    Hi Rufus, do you mean the next button on the first or second page of the wizard?

    Perhaps you could Skype me? It might be quicker to solve the problem
    than by email/blog. Username: ViewMyCurrency (I’ll be online most of Friday during the day)

    As a short-term fix, you can always go back to the previous version

    Thank you for the link. I mean in the first page: it is blocked and then I cann’t configure it.

    PS: I had put you on my Skype list: I’m marco.guadagnini
