Goat 1000 home
Welcome to Goat 1000 - this is where you'll find some of the bits and pieces of software that I cobble together for fun. Please feel free to download them and try them out. All this stuff is freeware, no guarantee that it will do anything, etc. (though if it does fail to do anything, please let me know!)
This is not a very exciting update, but it does contain quite a few fixes and improvements. Only one update is really visible from the outside though.
Import/export folder list
Someone asked for this, it seemed like a useful and easy thing to add, so here it is. In the config dialog on the folders list you now have two new options on the right-click context menu for exporting and importing the folder list.
The file is a plain UTF-8 text file with one folder on each line. The export option will create a file from the existing list, and the import option will add folders from a file - either replacing the current list or adding to it, you are given the choice.
Another bugfix - not a crash this time, just something not working.
When is plain text not plain text?
When it's a vignette effect. I broke the plain text item in version 5.26, so you could still configure one but you would end up with a default-configured vignette effect when you ran the screensaver instead. It was very easy to fix, so I'm annoyed that I didn't notice it while I was testing.
The updated installers are on the downloads page.
Just two days after the release of 5.26, here's 5.26.1. This one fixes a crash.
Obviously this bug didn't cause any crashes while I was doing my testing, but it was found pretty quickly by one user because it made JPEG Saver crash just after startup.
The problem might not affect many people because it was triggered by JPEG Saver failing to open its database on the first attempt, but succeeding on subsequent attempts. I'm hoping not many users will be in that situation, because it implies a configuration problem elsewhere.
