Congratulation Vity for this new version.

It's much faster than the 0.75 version.
The transfer fonction works well on my Windows Me + TI connect + TI titanium. It's a great feature.

I tested also the linux version, that works fine too. I haven't tested the transfer on Linux since TIPL2 does not work yet on Linux for Titanium.
Can you add an icon for the KDE desktop ?

On the presentation screen the version is still 0.75. (sorry I haven't found any thing else wrong).

Hello Jim,
those are great news for me.
Can you give me some specification for the icon in KDE?. I'll ask Rusttaf to create it.
I'll fix the splash screen.

I also plan to release another build today or tommorow - I bundled other new features winking smiley. Watch this forum smiling smiley.

Thank you for your report again.

Vity

The KDE icons are .xpm (xpixmap 32x32 pixels).

The "about screen" can also be updated with the 0.8 version.

WordRider 0.8 alpha 3 was released. This is last alpha build. I guess it's starting to be stable enough smiling smiley. This build brings some new features again. See the list of changes above.
I will release a beta version as soon as I get all translations from translators.

Hi Vity,

I can't find the 0.8apha3 windows version on this page.
From where can download it ?

I have been using 0.8apha2 for a while, dand I haven't noticed any problem.

Thanks.

Hi Vity,

I came up with a small problem with version 0.8 alpha 3 (wibndows version)
When I cut a piece of text with the right click. It works.
But if I want to paste with the right click menu, the paste fonction cannot be accessed with the right click menu.
