Zlip792 - thanks for the compliments, much appreciated. Please go to the github site and create an issue entitled "Urdu Language File" and I'll work with you to get that language supported.

Boss, done, now waiting for instructions from. Monday and Tuesday are off here so will work much more in that days. I will try to post its review on some forums (not spamming - proper review) as well as for needed exposure for great handy app.

will you be taking bug reports for GNP in the windows consumer preview? I've ran into a minor issue while running it in the preview.

A translation issue in English (US) (in my opinion):

There was a while problem checking for updates

it should be:

There was a problem while checking for updates

I think it should be like this way.. Progressing well on Urdu translation... ~50% done.

Also I saved XML in Unicode, is it OK?

As a rule of thumb I don't troubleshoot apps on beta builds (which includes RCs, CTPs, etc.) of Windows. Too much changes. You can spend hours debugging some quirk in the build only to have that quick fixed in the following build.

Ok. Fair enough. Thanks.

I'm going to release a minor update this week Wednesday (Eastern Time) afternoon. Nothing major, some new language support that users have contributed and a few minor fixes for edge case issues I've been seeing on my machine. I may or may not put together an installer for this, installers tend to be a pain in the ass.

Cheers

Well that didn't happen. I've been pretty sick. Another user has contacted me with an installer, so I'll bundle that as soon as I can get healthy.

Hope you get well soon. No rush on the update needed. It's working great as is now.

Like a walker in the zombie apocalypse that just won't die, I've been poking at GNP again. I've been making some updates to the code, and you can follow the progress here https://github.com/shellscape/Gmail-Notifier-Plus/commits/master/ (as you can see, did quite a bit today)

I also updated http://shellscape.org/ to prominently feature GNP.

I still want to get a good update checking type thing integrated before I release. Unless you're checking back here frequently (and with the hiatus lately, that's probably not the case) or following me on twitter (@shellscape) you're not going to know theres a new update unless the app tells you. The code's been there for a while, but disabled and incomplete.

Well, I have good news today. I've finished the seamless background auto-update feature and the remaining bugs are resolved. I'm gonna run this build for a day or so to make sure nothing crazy happens and then I'll package a release. Here's a few shots of what's new:

Yes, if you look at the urdu file on github, you'll see a few lines that I couldn't translate using Google. Thanks for asking!

Running for a few days with zero errors. So we're good to go. I have one sticky problem with the new installer for 3.5 (the new version) to solve with regard to setting the program shortcut in the start menu. WiX is a bitch to work with. Once I get that figured out, we're good for a release. Thanks to everyone for your patience over the last few months in waiting for your fixes to arrive in a build.

Just added 30 new languages. Managed to leverage Bing's translate service (as Google's is now pay-for) to write a small app to translate the XML for me. Mind you, it's probably not 100% correct, but will probably be enough for users that don't read English well.

hi Andrew,

i have used this nice app from the first versions. but now i have problems: i installed windows 8 release preview and now preferences can't open so i can't create an account.

i found a way i can check my mail by using an old version 2.1.2 cause it used a different way of showing preferences window. but for some reason it captures focus every time it checks mail, so current program becomes inactive and it's not convenient (like i can't continue to scroll by mouse wheel until i press somwhere in the window to make program active again).

it will be great if you could make the newest version to run on windows 8.

As the very first post on this topic says, I don't triage support issues on neowin. Please use github issues for support.

The 3.5 installer is ready. (I hope) I'd like a few pre-release testers to give it a shot before I release. If you'd like to help with testing the installer, please send me a private message.
