thank you very much for your mail, and thank you for your kind
1.) By activating Aedict Ultimate you are supposed to have access to
all features. If not, just let me know :)
2.) UMN is stored on your phone (otherwise it wouldn't work if your
phone was offline). I still firmly believe Aedict must work offline,
so I wouldn't dare to require your files to reside on cloud only.
UMN is backed by a database, but the database files are stored
locally on your Android phone. In fact it is an open-source database
(it's not sqlite which is slow, but it's based on H2 MVStore with
sync capabilities); in fact I've open-sourced UMN here:
- so <black_humor>if I get hit
by a train you can still get your data :-D</black_humor>
You don't even need to activate Aedict Online sync if you don't want
to - UMN will still work completely fine.
3.) There is currently no method to convert from UMN to File-based
storage, that is true. It would be trivial to implement. However, I
wish people to stay away from File-based storage, since it's really
dumb-implemented, it requires everything to be in-memory and it was
meant for small things. Yet people started to have lots of data
which fit into UMN perfectly, but would cause File-based storage to
fail because it wouldn't fit into memory. That's why I'm hesitant to
implement this migration path.
4.) I try to maintain the project when I have the time;
unfortunately I haven't had much time lately and I'm sorry for that,
but I still try my best :) However, if I were to realize that I
can't maintain Aedict anymore, I will open-source Aedict and I will
post a notice on the mailing list.
Thank you again and I hope this clears things a bit :)
