Info on Gmail Notifier Plus is here Gmail Notifier Plus Readme


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. Please report issues here: https://github.com/s...ier-Plus/issues

Changes in 3.0 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.
  • Fixed several rarely occurring exceptions that I recorded on my machine, but were not reported externally.
  • The application and it's supporting libraries are now compiled as 32-bit (x86).
For a full list of specific changes, see the COMMIT-LOG file or https://github.com/s.../commits/master

Please note: Locale (Language) file layout/format changed for this version and many of the old locale files had to be discarded. If your language is missing, please contact me about translation.



The latest Downloads can always be found here: https://github.com/s...-Plus/downloads

As a follow-up;

I didn't enable new version checking as I was running into some issues. I'll wrap that up for 3.1.

I'm recommending that users unzip the program to C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local\Shellscape\Gmail Notifier Plus. It solves most permissions issues and I'm going to be installing to that directory when I get the installer wrapped up. That'll also be the path the auto-update code will be using.

Thanks Andrew for your efforts. Really nice work. By far the best gmail notifier available for Windows.

Thanks @mikegraphik, much appreciated.

Anyone have any ideas how we can get this app some more visibility? Theres always hitting the freeware sites with a PAD file, but that gets away from this being a neowin community app.

So you wanna get the app more exposure, but you don't wanna put it on any of the big download sites?

Well I just dont want neowin to lose another great community app - meaning that I dont want the main discussion and such to leave neowin I guess.

Compared to some of the other threads in this forum, and certainly on the rest of the site, we don't get many looks anymore. Maybe the allure has worn off, or maybe it's just not getting noticed. Is there any way to raise awareness on neowin?

I'd suggest PM-ing news staff to talk about giving the app exposure on the front page (full blown review perhaps), with a link back to this thread for more discussion.

Thanks for the wild goose chase trying to find the current thread :rofl:

Been using Digsby for years for my Gmail needs, but since it got bought out, it has gone to ****. Such a shame :(

Always intended to give Gmail Notifier Plus a try, so now that I've kicked Digsby to the curb, I think it's about time :)

Thank you. :) Been using this for a long time (before andrew_ further developed it), and I'm glad to see it still being updated. :)

So trying this out for first time and one thing i noticed when i ran it for first time that i'm not able to use tab key on account adding to get to the next field. (password field in this case). Also looks like other fields are not tabable. Not much of a deal breaker but having tab key instead of clicking all the time into a field would be nice.

Please re-read the OP Intelligen. Most notably the second sentence.

Oh i read it, just figured this was quickest way as its not a bug. You mentioned support requests and error reports. This is a feature idea. Entirely up to you if you want to add it. Did you also mean to add feature requests should also be added via https://github.com/s...ier-Plus/issues too?
