Qercus Changelog

New in version 0.24 Beta 2

April 2nd, 2012
  • Fixes to path handling, particularly for the "any url/file" type field. These should not affect Linux users - the mods. are to permit use of backslashes in filenames on Windows machines. You can, for example, create a button that opens a directory with MS explorer, Nautilus etc. I am informed that the bug on the Ubuntu Unity desktop described below is not fixed in the 12.04 beta release.

New in version 0.24 Beta 1 (December 19th, 2011)

Search dialogues have new checkbox labelled 'Switch': If checked there will be a switch to the hit-list selected for search results when the dialogue closes.

New in version 0.23 Beta 1 (August 29th, 2011)

  • This is the first beta release, produced after much fine tuning. There are still some greyed out features that are not completed, but the core functions work well.

WARNING: the note below about faulty versions of PyQt4 (e.g in Ubuntu 11.04) still applies!
