New: Zoom (May 18, 2023), Platform 25.0 (Apr 07, 2023)
New Apr 14: macOS Portable Drive Support
450+ real apps (49GB), 1.1 billion downloads, Please donate.
One of the new features in version 2.0 will be scripting support. Currently I have planned for the following commands but I am always open to suggestions for more.
Sync <job> Backup <job> Secure <job> Delete <filepath> Move <sourcepath> <destpath> Copy <sourcepath> <destpath> Execute <filepath>
Please note that this is not intended to replace batch file scripting, it is merely an easy way for you to tack a number of jobs together is an order, for example to run a Sync Update command before Encrypting.
Wow, it´s basically a whole month since my lat post, how time flies! Exams are done and my coursework is submitted so I am now able to make some good progress again and things are starting to come togther.
Currently I plan to have three development tests of Toucan 2.0 before the pre-releases, they will go something like tihs:
This page is primarily for me to keep track of my releases. Unlike the Development Test page, I will list currently release applications here, applications in beta, as well as soon to come applications. I'll try to update this chart as soon as I make a new release. I'll continue typing now so Drupal can provide a preview for this post without John noticing there's a chart following it using full HTML. Lets hope he doesn't hurt me.
That's right, I have decided to drop the wizards from Toucan 2.0, however hopefully they will be back in 2.1. The reason is simple, rather than hard code the wizards into the program itself I would like to make the wizards user generatable, so that other people can create their own wizards and post them up in the forums for eveybody to use, however this means that if I tried to get this done for 2.0 there would be pretty serious delays (yes I do have a shedule, no I'm not going to tell you).
Just a quick heads up to say that I have got three exams next week so I probably won't be around much. If anyone is interested it's two maths exams and a physics exam, good fun or what
Progress is being made on 2.0, so I thought I better give you all a quick run down of what is happening.
Just a quick heads up to tell you all that Toucan had it's 100,000th download this morning So thanks to John for the hosting, and hopefully you'll all see some more Toucan developments soon. With regards to 2.0 work it progressing slowly and the menu bar has now been scrapped!
2.0 is the next major step for Toucan. As well as including a number of much requested features it also includes a complete interface rewrite. There is one main reason that I decided a rewrite was necessary, and that was because Toucan was becoming interface limited. For example translations are fairly difficult in 1.2 because it is a fixed size interface, this has also made it very difficult to add new features, short of changing the sizes of the entire dialogue and all of its components every time I need to add a new one.
