Trade Profiteer – 1.1.414 (alpha)

A new version of the Trade Profiteer has been released.



Bugs fixed

TP-10 – Appears to be removing more data than it should

Along with this bug being fixed, a change to the UI was made. In the Island to Island tab, instead of showing each shoppe from which you should buy, it will show the quantity to buy and the prices at which to buy the commodity. You will find that it can generate a report much faster as a result of this change.

Fair winds.

Trade Profiteer – Next development release

Ahoy all,

Let me give you an idea of what is going to be coming down the pike in the next couple days. I will be making an unstable release of the next version of the Trade Profiteer, which will include support for large fonts and Java 6. My target for release is Sunday at the latest (Central Daylight Time), and everything appears on target.

First, this release will be an alpha release. For those who don’t know, this means the release will be feature incomplete (won’t have everything targeted for the next stable release), and you may encounter some bugs and issues — I haven’t encountered anything that has crashed my computer, so that is a good sign.

Now I’ve gone to lengths to allow both the stable release (1.0.1331) and this upcoming unstable release (1.1.[something]) to be installed at the same time on your computer. Plus the version detection will only detect new development versions, and the stable versions will only be able to detect new stable versions, though I may expand this to detect both, or make it a configuration option. What do you think?

So keep an eye out in the next couple days for news of an unstable release, if you’re willing to test it. I’m also getting a different bug tracker up and running on my web site that should be less intimidating to the novice so you can report any bugs you do find.

Fair winds.
