Nearly finished new output tab

I've now tidy up'd the output tab for RichMosaic. Just got some coding to do behind the scenes....
Then I'll ave to make sure the special feature is also fully coded (more on that later) before I release v3

Just seen my web report for Feb.. thanks to the popularity of RichMosaic (4000+ downloads), my traffic for February is currently at 1.8GB. Unfortunately I only have a 2GB bandwidth... Got 4 days to get through with out going over the limit.

This may be my fault as well as I've released 3 updates this month... oops

Any donations for extra bandwidth would be welcome ;-)

not much to announce

Its been one of those weeks.. what with the full time job and also being called out a few times this week.. I'm kinda tired.
Not much has been done on RichMosaic.. I have been thinking about an inifinite mosaic function.. but that will have to come at a later date as I still need to finish off the current version.
The next release (if no issues are spotted with v2) will be version 3 as there is a big change in the way it can draw the mosaics. That will be in a few weeks.

Till then you can show off your mosaics on this forum thread..
I may even choose some of you examples (if any) to put on the main examples webpage

re-designing GUI

I'm trying to re-design the output tab in the GUI so that is more clear on the output formats.. picture/web, jpeg/png/htm etc. Thought it would be easy, but its a fine line between design and logic. Harder than i thought ;-) Now that I've started I'm going to have to finish.. heres a screen shot.. (I've smudged the title of one of the tabs.. its a very new secret special feature thats still in development and testing)

2.03 released

Today a tester noticed that old cache files weren't being read if not used for a long time. This had to do with naming and dates of the cache file. This has now been fixed in v2.03. Get the update here

Uploaded to Softpedia

Not only does this mean that RichMosaic is now in a vast software library, it also means that the download has been approved 100% secure from malware, spyware and virus by Softpedia. See the link here.
Hopefully there will be some constructive reviews now from users so that I can improve features.

new blog

Today I posted my first ever blog entry. Hopefully this blog will provide more information about the development of RichMosaic and a behind-the-scenes look at things to come for this app. I plan to use an RSS feed to link to these blog entries as well.
