The next version of GNP is ready for testing. The download contains a debug build of GNP with debug symbol files (which makes the download larger) so that any error output with contain more information to help fix any issues. Once I feel it's stable, I'll put together a final release build. I've been running this version on my system for the last two weeks and it's very stable here.

Changes in 3.0 b1 include:
  • New preferences dialog (again) based on the Windows Control Panel UX. I've made a lot of effort to use the same system resources, layout and measurements that the actual control panel does in order to give this a native appearance and feel.
  • Reorganized the jumplist commands and jumplist email display. Should make it more obvious what the default account is for.
  • Improved the logic for displaying emails and fixed the toast email display.
  • Improved locale (i18n) file layout.
  • Improved lots of internal mechanisms.
  • Fixed all of the issues that were reported (if it was possible) since the last version.
For a full list of specific changes, see the COMMIT-LOG file or https://github.com/s.../commits/master

Please note: since the locale file layout/format changed for this version, most of the old locales were left out of the beta build. I'm hoping to get them back into the app for the final version, but I only have access to so many folks that speak another language. If you speak another language fluently, please consider submitting a locale file. (I'd prefer it if folks used github and submitted it via a pull request, but I'm not picky on this one)

Please report any errors on the project on Github, along with error data. I won't triage issues on the forums here.

For my own sanity, I won't be replying to support requests or error reports on the forums here. But members should feel free to help out other members. Report issues here: https://github.com/s...ier-Plus/issues

Cheers

And we already have our first issue. This one should only effect first time users (sadly). So beta 2 will be following tomorrow at some point.

So we don't have to delete the files from the previous version, in order to use this latest version? That's what I did and now there's an error when I run GNP. I think this is the problem you are referring to.

Yeah it sounds like exactly the problem.

And no, you shouldn't ever need to delete any files in AppData from previous versions. Im not sure how the original author did every release, but personally, I hate having to reconfigure each new version :)

Waiting on some feedback from the folks that reported issues before I push another beta. I'll keep everyone posted here.

For anyone following the thread; looks like this is an issue isolated to 64bit Windows users. I'm trying to track it down and working with a guy through github that's helping. If we cant come up with a solution I'll either be recompiling as a 32bit assembly or putting in a stop-gap for the issue at hand.

Hows the troubleshooting for this bug for 64-bit users coming along?

I presume this is the error you're talking about? (I'm on Win 7 64bit)

@PsYcHoKiLLa yes, thats the error that users will see. If you'd like to help troubleshoot it, please shoot over to the github issues.

@aznkid - slowly. its not an error that is well documented, as its probably not something that folks have run into very often. the solution is to target x86 (32 bit) processors only, but I'd rather not go that route unless i absolutely have to.

I have not been able to get any version of your app to work with Google Apps. Google Apps is supported?

What do you mean by targeting 32-bit processors only? Have you decided to do this yet?

You can tell the app to build to accommodate both x86 and x64 processors, or you can tell it to only compile for x86 (32 bit) processors. I'm still on the fence. I'd really rather not target one specific platform.
