Band Saw 0.3.0 Released (09 March 2006)
The final release of Band Saw 0.3.0 is now available. This is the first release that replaces the popup alert dialogs with a nifty icon in the notification tray. If you downloaded the development release you should still upgrade as I've fixed some UI bugs and updated the user manual.
0.3.0-dev Development Release (08 March 2006)
It took 18 months to get from 0.1.1 to 0.2.0, and now less than 18 hours later there's another package. Mmmm, why's that then?
There are two problems with 0.2.0. Firstly, I just noticed that it has a tendency to ignore some log messages if you get several messages arriving at once. 0.1.1 had the same problem, but it's now fixed in 0.3.0-dev.
Secondly, 0.2.0 hassles you by popping up dialogs all the time. Wouldn't it be nice if it caught your eye but let you carry on with what you were doing? Possibly with an icon in your notification tray?
You can get it here: bandsaw-0.3.0-dev.tar.gz. You may find that you need to install GnomePythonExtras to get support for the tray icon. Hopefully it won't be too long before I've updated the user manual and rolled out a proper version of 0.3.0...
Band Saw 0.2.0 Released (07 March 2006)
This release adds the ability to filter the messages displayed in the message view. For example, you can restrict the view so that you only see the messages that were created by a given host, during a certain hour or minute, or that contain a specific key word.
Packages are available from the download page.
Band Saw 0.1.1 Released (02 August 2004)
This is a minor release to fix the installation instructions in the README file. It suggested that you run
during installation, but it's not necessary and will fail unless
you have pMock
There's no need to upgrade if you have installed 0.1.0. Packages available from the download page.
Band Saw 0.1.0 Released (31 July 2004)
The first version of Band Saw is now ready for public consumption. Head over to the download page to try it out.
Autoconf/automake support (16 July 2004)
I've been working on autoconf/automake support to make installation a breeze. If you'd like to give it a try checkout the code from CVS and then run:
./autogen.sh; make install
Feedback would be much appreciated. I'm going to hold off releasing version 0.1 until I've ironed out a couple of minor known bugs, but it won't be long now.
Development version useful (26 June 2004)
The version in CVS is quite useful. It supports reading messages from a named pipe and displaying on screen alerts when serious events occur. You can also throttle the number of alert dialogs so you're not inundated with error messages.
Version 0.1 will be released once I've hooked up the Preferences dialog (you currently need to edit the config file by hand) and written some installation scripts and documentation.
Band Saw development started (22 June 2004)
The CVS repository is up and the code has been imported. Watch this space...
