The moment we've all been dreaming about (well some of us at least) is getting close. This release fixes all known major issues in PersonalBrain 4.5.
Highlights include some big fixes for Mac OS, better Outlook integration for Windows, and several bug fixes for copy and paste.
Version 188.8.131.52 – Release Candidate 1 *
June 26, 2008
· Outlook Integration
o Drag and drop from Outlook of multiple items (message, contacts, attachments, and etcetera) is supported for multiple items at a time.
§ This feature makes it easy to do things such as adding all your Contacts into your Brain: Just create a Thought called “Contacts” and activate it, open Outlook, select all your contacts, and finally drag and drop to an empty area of the plex.
o Contacts, emails, and notes dragged from Outlook into the plex automatically create a Thought and populate its notes with relevant content.
o Dialog box icons added
· Mac OS
o Fixed: Notes menu text is larger than normal
o Fixed: Sometimes the first Brain loaded on startup does not display properly unless the window is resized.
o Fixed: Paste of Thoughts does not work if PersonalBrain cannot connect to the Internet
o Fixed: Collapse/expand all commands don’t appear in the menu
o Fixed: Paste of Thoughts sometimes fails due to an exception related to link type information
o Fixed: Sometimes icons attached to thoughts disappear and do not appear until the brain is re-opened
o When opening a Brain fails, better error information is displayed
o Fixed: Move file into brain adds an extra external link to the internal file under Mac OS and Linux
o Fixed: When Brains created by version 4.5 are opened with version 4.1, they give an error message instead of recommending the appropriate upgrade.
o Fixed: If pasted Thoughts do not have activation times in them, no thought is activated nor linked to the active thought, so there is no way to see what was pasted without using instant search.
