Request of active developers

I have been assigned the task of maintaining and updating the Development Test page. When first assigned, the list was very sparse, maybe a total of 15 entries, and the Outdated section didn't even exist. Due to Simeon, Patrick, and myself scouring through the Beta Test forums, I updated the list to a nearly complete status. I realize there are still many apps missing, but we're much better off than before.

My request to the active developers is this, when you make an update to a Dev Test release, if your app goes to Pre-Release status, if you revive an Outdated app, or if you release a new app, please leave a comment on the Development Test page linked to above. It will ensure that our info is accurate and that our users and Beta Testing Team are working with the latest set of apps and can properly test and report back on your applications.

Thank you for all your work in creating these portable applications, and thanks in advance for keeping me up-to-date.

Edit: I have another request. I recently added a "Version" column to the table that contains the version of the base app inside the current portable release. My request is that you verify that I have the correct version number, or if the Version is blank, that you let me know what the version number is.

Thanks

Thanks for all the hard work on this. I forgot to post a comment about GnuCash going to pre-release but I see you caught it already!

Note on Editting

Hey Zach. Great work keeping the page updated. One request, though. Please use a text editor like Notepad++ and not a WYSIWYG editor like Nvu/KompoZer, etc to edit it. Whatever you're using had broken the javascript that stripes the tables and inserted a few blank rows in tables making it not work right even when I fixed it.

I'll be sure to do that. I stopped using KompoZer after the first issue we had, but it seems like it was too late and the script is already broken. Notepad++ it is.

Great job!

My Mahjong can be removed, as I'm cancelling all updates and support on that.
Also, FYI, R'n'D Portable will be updated when R'n'D is updated Blum

Cool, this site has really

Cool, this site has really taken off since I first started coming here. Wish I would have seen this page before I went through all the old beta posts again looking for apps Blum

EDIT: I don't know if this is exactly the purpose of this page, but it would be nice, if possible, to add sorting by date updated. This way it would be easy to see what apps were recently updated so people could easily find and test new releases.

Good Idea

I also thought it would be a better idea to have it by date. It would be cool to be able to sort be header.

Sorting would be a cool thing to add. Unfortunately my html/javascript/php skills aren't up to that level. If somebody has a working solution, let me know.

I'm also not really sure on that kind of stuff, but possibly the sorting and even adding new entries would be easier if you had it display from a database instead of editing the page every time.

I've already talked to John about database stuff....its not easy to integrate into Drupal w/o it being an official module.

Now Sortable!

I added a full Javascript sorting utility to the Development Test page. Now, you can sort all 3 tables by any column you wish. And it's all Javascript-based, so this won't add any extra work in terms of maintenance for Zach.

Give it a try!

Sort question

When using sort by name:

cdrtfe
jEdit

are out of place ???

Is it because they are lower case?

Same happens with sort by Developer

Yeah - Switched

By default it uses a case-sensitive sorting algorithm like Linux filename lists. I switched it to case-insensitive.

Restriping

IMHO, it should be restriped after each sort.

That's a good idea Ryan. I didn't notice until now that stripting can be messed up by sorting.

Take a look?

I agree, but my brain isn't following the JS at the moment to handle it. Anyone want to take a look and offer up a fix?

Easy.

I'll take a look now.

Edit: Or not. IMHO, we should be using jQuery if it's available.

question......

Can any non-open source betas be posted in that list? or is it Open-Source only?

Hmm

I think we should switch to the Tablesorter jQuery plugin. That way, we can also use the zebra included widget.

I'm changing it over now. Don't worry, I still have the original code if needed.

Looks good Ryan, thanks. Any chance we could switch the colors though and have the top table row be white instead of gray?

Ask John, not I

John's the one with the CSS editing stuff Blum

I could switch the class names over, but it would be bad semantic wise.
