Version 4.0.4.1 is available for download now. This version extends the Pro trial another 30 days, fixes some bugs, and adds a few minor features, including sorting of attachments. Probably most important is a fix that resolves the CPU usage problem.

We recommend that all users upgrade to this version right away.

Here are all the details.

Version 4.0.4.1

April 6, 2007

  • Extended trial period
  • PersonalBrain Tips added to Help menu
  • Add Attachment Dialog
    • Added an option to add a link to a folder
    • Cleaned up layout and added icons to buttons
  • Attachments List
    • Attachments can be sorted by name/size/location/file type by clicking on the column headers
    • Fixed: On Windows Vista the header is displayed too tall
    • Fixed: Attachment lists displayed in modeless dialog boxes (created by right-clicking a thought and selecting Properties & Attachments) do not update when attachments are added/removed/changed
  • Search Fixes
    • Indexing of Web content does not use up any noticeable CPU resources
    • The rebuild index command works properly
  • Search Indexing
    • When refreshing the Web pages index, multiples files are downloaded at once, speeding up the indexing process. Up to 4 simultaneous downloads are done at once.
    • The Rebuild Search Index process starts the Refresh Web Pages Index process after it has completed.
    • Both rebuilding and refreshing processes create log files with detailed information in the Home folder of a Brain. The log files are called RebuildSearchIndex.log and RefreshWebPagesIndex.log.
    • Refreshing the index for web pages can be stopped and resumed without having to restart from the beginning.
    • Refreshing of the web pages index is done automatically in the background
  • General Fixes
    • The create/link/edit thought dialog box remains onscreen even when it is opened near a screen edge.
    • Pins and past thoughts show gates on highlight to enable creation and linking of thoughts from pins/PTL.
    • When a new Brain is opened
      • The wander/ESP Sync ghost thought is cleared
      • Forgotten thoughts are hidden
      • The normal view is automatically set
  • Unix/Linux fixes
    • Added support for svgz (gournal) files

PB4.0.4.1 in OS X still consumes about +-9% CPU when just being open, not effectively used.

To compare: iTunes needs +-4% to play an audio stream from an internet radio

edit: other Java apps require 0% for just being open, so Java does not seem to be the culprit.

Just as a data point (I know you didn't claim that this was fixed   ) I still can't interact with the windows desktop or start menu using 4.0.4.1 under Vista 64.  Things are looking nice otherwise, though.

Wouter, how do you monitor CPU usage in OS X? Thanks.
