This is a very simple applet that provides a way of notifying you that a particular time has arrived. It allows you to display a dialog box with a message in it, execute a command, play a sound file or make the applet flash on and off at a particular time of day.

This all came about because on numerous occasions there has been something that i needed to be doing, but was late for because i had become engrossed in programming something or other. Well, here is a little panel applet that should hopefully help.


The sound file that is used for sound alarms can be changed on the fly and the next sound alarm will use the new file. This may or may not cause a memory leak if you change the file a lot, so be careful for the moment.

The volume control doesn't work yet, so you'll have to change that manually using a mixer program.

I have only tested this applet myself, so there are probably bugs that i haven't found yet, or better ways of doing things.

If you compile the applet withou sound support, the option to have a sound alarm is still available, although it doesn't actually do anything. I could sort this out by putting loads of #ifdef's all over the place, but i happen to agree that it makes for ugly code which is difficult to maintain.

What's New in This Release:

Added patches from Bruno Pires Marinho that fixed a few things and changed a few things for the better.

NB. This will probably be the last release that contains bug fixes/features that have been contributed by myself. If i find any horrendous bugs then i'll fix them, but if you want anything added from now on, then you'll have to do it yourself and send me a patch.

Any new releases of the current code after this will be based on this new system of code modifcation and delegation.
