Jack 2.6 - Now Available

Change Log:

* App-Store: Rate It buttons working again.

Read more...


* WBStartup: New tooltype 'DELAY'. On first-run Jack will pause for specified
number of seconds before trying to make a connection to the internet. Users
who don't plan to add Jack to their WBStartup can safely set this to zero.

* Slideshow Mode: It is now possible to Zoom In and Out of any image using
plus (=) and minus (-) on the keyboard.

* App-Store: No crash when closing Sign-up window via the Cancel button or
keyboard shortcut.

* General: Handling tooltypes and command line arguments has been improved.

* General: Serious fix to broken HTML and URL encoding and decoding.

Download/Installation instructions:

* Existing Users - Simply start your current version of Jack as normal and when prompted click the confirmation button to proceed with the download**. Open the Installation Drawer and click on the Install Jack icon - after that simply select the location where you already have Jack installed and the installation is complete.

** Requires Jack to have left OS4Depot's upload queue.

* New Users - Visit OS4Depot and type Jack in the search box. Or use this link: http://os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=utility/workbench/jack.lha Make sure v2.6 has replaced the older version.

Installation is simple, just press the Install Jack icon and select a location where you would like Jack to be installed. Jack will now appear on your Dockbar.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Guys I've tried, but I've not been able to re-create this error. I wouldn't have released this if it was happening to me as it clearly blocks the whole operation of the program. Hmmm, where to go from here... please open a shell:

cd ENVARC:
type AISS

result for me: AISS 4.11 (31.12.10)

Jack does require AISS 4.11 or greater as mentioned on os4depot. Tell me if that helps.

Apologies if I have missed something in the documentation.

They are not linked. Jack simply provides a means of selecting a date and adding an event to an existing solution.

In other words all event data is transferred to either AOrganiser (via arexx) or Google Calendar (via url).

Well they are both what I would call links but no matter.
My problem is when selecting aorganiser, nothing is saved.

No but there is a file called diary
I made a copy of it and called it My Diary

Something now does appear to happen but nothing is saved in either file.

Cheers
