Download Link Fixed

March 13, 2009

Downloading IMLocation hasn’t been working for several weeks(!!).

I have been using a semi-automated process to package IMLocation up on a .dmg and release it. The scripts had been working unchanged for about a year, but after I made some changes to the IMLocation Xcode project, they didn’t work correctly anymore. Everything appeared to build, but the .dmg on my website was corrupt.

I discovered the problem, because the number of downloads in my server logs did not match the bandwidth used.

This is entirely my fault for not doing an end to end test, to make sure that the final bits on my website were correct.

Lesson learned.

Version 0.37

March 3, 2009

Version 0.37 (beta) is out! Download the latest version.

Changes in Version 0.37

* Removed the status tab. I just can’t see people updating their status through IMLocation, instead of an actual Twitter/AIM/whatever program.
* Added the Set Default Printer action.
* IMLocation should start up faster, because the way the location database is read has been simplified.

As always, updating is very strongly encouraged during the beta period. I try hard to make the latest build work, but I do not support old beta versions. Please let me know if you find any bugs.

Enjoy!

Version 0.36

January 20, 2009

Version 0.36 (beta) is out! Download the latest version.

Changes in Version 0.36

* Added the “Set iChat Status” action.
* Added the Set Screen Saver Security action.
* Fixed a bug in beta-logging. Diagnostic information can now be found at ~/Library/Application Support/IMLocation/BetaLogs/. This information is never sent anywhere, and logs more then a week old will be deleted.

* Fixed bundle-IDs of “com.yourcompany.” in some Automator actions that I had stupidly forgotten to change.

As always, updating is very strongly encouraged during the beta period. I try hard to make the latest build work, but I do not support old beta versions. Please let me know if you find any bugs.

Enjoy!

Version 0.35 (beta) is out! Download the latest version.

Changes in Version 0.35

* Added a “Close Private Webpages in Safari” action that can automatically detect adult content using Latent Semantic Mapping.

* Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the default “Home” and “Work” locations that were added on first run to be erased on the second run.

* Added a few more application-specific default status messages.

As always, updating is very strongly encouraged during the beta period. I try hard to make the latest build work, but I do not support old beta versions. Please let me know if you find any bugs.

Enjoy!

Version 0.34

January 4, 2009

Version 0.34 (beta) is out! Download the latest version.

Changes in Version 0.34
* Built all projects so that Mac OS X 10.5 is required (oops! On the bright side, nobody called me on it, which makes me feel better about requiring Leopard).
* Double-clicking on a location-name to change it should be more responsive
* Fixed a bug which made it possible to give a location an illegal name.
* Miscellaneous bug fixes, spelling corrections.

As always, updating is very strongly encouraged during the beta period. I try hard to make the latest build work, but I do not support old beta versions. Please let me know if you find any bugs.

Enjoy!

Version 0.33

December 31, 2008

Version 0.33 (beta) is out! Download the latest version here.

This update fixes a bug in the “Mute Internal Speakers” Automator action.

It also includes fixes from Version 0.32, which I had not officially announced, pending more feedback from testing.

Version 0.32 restored Adium integration, and included some minor UI tweaks.

As always, updating is very strongly encouraged during the beta period. I try hard to make the latest build work, but I do not support old beta versions. Please let me know if you find any bugs.

Enjoy!

Adium Support is Broken

December 24, 2008

Regretfully, integration with Adium isn’t working right now.

I apologize for releasing without adequate testing.

I did not change any of the Adium-related code from version 2.9 and I foolishly assumed it all still worked because nobody had complained. But in the 13 months since I had last tested my Adium plugin, Adium was updated in a way that broke it. I had gotten out of the habit of using Adium (I prefer iChat’s simplicity and video capabilities) and so I missed this issue completely.

Unfortunately, it looks like getting the status message from Adium with AppleScript is broken, so I don’t yet have a fix out.

I can get the status type (eg away, available), but without a way to get/set the status message there’s not much useful I can do.

I am working on updating my Adium plugin so I can ask it for all details of the the current status. I expect a fix shortly, holidays permitting.
