Hi everyone,

I am now testing a new version of keepnote 0.7.6.
http://keepnote.org/index.shtml#download-test

The changes in this release are:
- added foreground and background colors to treeview and listview
- added color palettes saving
- added listview column order and width saving
- added frequent VACUUM sqlite command to notebook index
- added optional fulltext indexing (provides work around for searching with other languages)
- fixed windows My Documents location within virtual folders
- fixed windows linking bug

Going forward, I am working towards having customizable attributes for notes.  Eventually, you will be able to add new columns to the listview in order to sort and search for notes in various new ways.

I would be interested to hear about people's experience with the new version.  You can submit bug reports here:
http://code.google.com/p/keepnote/issues/list

Thanks,
Matt

Hi everyone,

There is one other thing I added this testing release that might be of
interest to some power users. You can now use a keepnote notebook
remotely over http. Just start a http server with the command

keepnote -c start-http 8000 path/to/my/notebook

Then with another instance of keepnote you can open the notebook like this

keepnote http://localhost:8000/

I have not implemented any security yet with this kind of hosting.
For now, the http server only listens to local connections (to prevent
remote connections from accessing the notebook). In order to access
the notebook on another computer please use ssh forwarding for the
time being. For example on another computer run the following
commands

ssh -f -N -L 8000:localhost:8000 remote_host_with_notebook.com
keepnote http://localhost:8000

If you are unfamiliar with using the command line or using ssh
forwarding, I recommend you wait until a more complete implementation
before using this feature.

The http server right now is implemented in an extremely simple way.
However, it should be a bit faster to use then using a network
filesystem. I have found this feature useful for slower network
connections.

Let me know what you guys think.

Matt

Hi Did,
You probably need to redownload the very latest version of 0.7.6

Hi everyone,

I would really like a lot of testing on this release. Even if you
experience no bugs, just letting me know it works on your system
really helps. I particularly want to know what OS you use it on.

There was one particularly nasty bug that occurred in keepnote-0.7.4.
In all other versions before keepnote I had future proof protection
where keepnote would not open a notebook that had a version number
*higher* than what it can open. This prevented older versions of
keepnote from accidentally corrupting notebooks that have been
upgraded. However, in keepnote-0.7.4 I added a feature to
automatically repair common types of corruption. This feature
unfortunately mistaken notebooks with future versions as corrupted and
would try to "repair" them. The result was all the note titles
turning to "New Page", like this:
http://code.google.com/p/keepnote/issues/detail?id=541

As always, please backup your notebooks before testing new versions of keepnote.

Thanks for all your help,
Matt

Thanks guys for the reports!

Klein, I have not heard of this closing bug before. Are there any
error messages in the error log associated with this?

No issues here on win xp/sp3, except for the still open (and repeatable) issue 354

Thanks
