1.5 Upgrade Tomorrow! New Storage/Endeavors feature demo

OK, so I definitely bit off way more than I could chew and tried to do the 1.5 upgrade at the same time that I tried to finish up a couple of pretty non-trivial feature enhancements. The end result is that I will be a few days late with support for 1.5.

Ultimately, I put myself into a position where I had to either push the 1.5 upgrade without addressing the performance issues that the Manager has been experiencing lately, or to take a little bit longer, address the performance stuff and miss my (self-imposed) deadline for the 1.5 upgrade.

As of right this minute, I've got 95% of the next release of the Manager ready to go and...I gotta say, I feel like I made the right decision: the Manager looks and works really, really well right now.

But don't take my word for it. Check out this tablet resolution feature demo: it teases the new Endeavors and Storage features of the Manager and hopefully gives a sense of how big of an overall upgrade the Manager is going to receive when I roll out my 1.5 support update.

I'll probably roll out the new release tomorrow afternoon: I've got a couple of small items to wrap up and then I'll want to do a little more QA on a couple of things before I push the release.

Thanks for using the Manager!

  1. What is the easiest way to drop you a suggestion/idea? I didn't want to report it as a bug. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    1. Here is fine, if you don't mind the public nature of it.

      Using the "Report an Issue" feature in the webapp will send me an email.

      Twitter DMs @KdmManager also go directly to me.

      Whatever works for you: let me know what's on your mind.

      Thanks for checking it out!
