12/21/11 [1.1.4]

* New Feature: Support for old-school Atom Feeds. This addition allows you to use your Google Alerts in the RSS feed section of CurationSoft
* Drag & Drop Confusion: We’ve noticed that more and more support tickets are coming in with drag and drop issues. It’s not that the feature is broken but it needs to work better. As a response, we made sure the only draggable area is where the drag icon is available. Before you could drag the entire item but it wouldn’t drop. It was confusing. We believe this small change will cut down on confusion and hopefully provide you a better experience.

12/16/11 [1.1.3]

* New Feature: Now you can import your OPML file from Google Reader. Just export from Google Reader and then you can import the same file into CurationSoft.

12/8/11 [1.1.2]

* YouTube style update. The YouTube now reflect the dragging capability of the rest of the software. It was causing some confusion as it should have.
* With the expanded search box introduced in 1.1.0 the dock window size was incorrect. We wanted to keep it streamlined so we just removed the logo when you dock the application. It’s helpful and the window is now 200 pixels smaller when you dock.
* Bug Fix: Simple thing here. Sometimes dragging while CurationSoft wasn’t in focus caused an issue where the code wouldn’t be copied. That’s fixed now we think.

12/8/11 [1.1.1]

* Bug Fix: Twitter paging menu not being removed

* Bug Fix: If you had autocomplete history and used the editor to take it down to zero then the program would crash. We didn’t account for that when we rolled out the Autocomplete Editor. Unfortunately, if you’ve used the Autocomplete History editor, then you will probably need to delete your history under Settings | Options. If you’re seeing no results, when you do a search this is the issue. Hat tip to Gail for finding the bug.

11/29/11 [1.1.0]

* New Feature: View & Edit your autocomplete history. After a bunch of searches your autocomplete box can get out of control. We wanted to give you a way to control this and delete entries if necessary. You’ll find a new menu item under the Settings menu named: Autocomplete.

* Due to some complaints about the width of the search box, we’ve expanded it about 50 pixels which should provide more viewable characters. Now those long, pesky searches will be viewable.

11/15/11 [1.0.9]

* Two new sources! We found that many people were unhappy with Google Blogs & Google News so we added Blekko Blog & Blekko news search. If you’re not familiar with Blekko it’s an incredibly powerful search engine. Their results are extremely high-quality and we’re excited to have them as a content partner. When you start using Blekko for curation you’ll soon realize that it’s an excellent search engine.

* Fixed a bug where the page navigation bar was still appearing when getting RSS feed results. That shouldn’t happen because RSS Feeds only return 10 results usually.

* Couple of small UI tweaks. Made the fact you have to double-click the RSS feed for results to return much more noticeable.

11/2/11 [1.0.8]

* Found a bug in YouTube results. Hat tip to Arnold :)

10/21/11 [1.0.7]

* The big news is added support for RSS Feeds. You can add your own feeds and pull data from them as needed. This feature is in BETA and will be improved greatly in upcoming versions. It’s a bit rough around the edges and we’ll continue improving as we go forward in future versions.

* Improved UI for every content source. It’s now much more intuitive and easier on the eyes. We took a hard look at the layout for each source and changed all of them except YouTube. YouTube will probably get refreshed in the next update.

* Favicons for each post. We’re using a cool service to bring Favicons into every result which really jazzes up the visuals when you drop your posts. It also helps a lot with presenting information to you (in the software) and your readers (on your site).

* Google News completely revamped. To be honest, the first release of Google News wasn’t up to par with our standards and that’s been corrected. It’s a very similar setup to Google Blogs now and we think you’ll be happy with the end result.

* Twitter results completely revamped. We changed the layout, add most popular tweets (with Retweet numbers) at the top, added links for hashtags and mentions and it feels a lot more like a real Twitter search client.

* Flickr results completely revamped. It’s now a fancy tile layout and the images load once and there is no more flickering when you scroll. It’s a major upgrade to the Flickr results but there’s a lot more to do that we’ll work on in upcoming releases. Still a bit rough around the edges.

* Image caching. We’ve implemented image caching across a large portion of the app. This prevents images from constantly reloading when you change the window, scroll, etc.. It’s a major performance improvement. Expect more performance improvements in upcoming releases.

* We threw out all the previous code and implementations of Drag & Drop and completely redid it. They have been rethought from the ground up and you’ll find your experience is much cleaner, easier and less frustrating. No more erroneous HTML, link colors, etc.. To quote the late Steve Jobs, “It just works”.

* Lots of code base cleanup. You won’t see it, but we promise you’ll benefit from it through performance improvements :) – We will be doing a bunch more of this in upcoming versions that you’ll benefit from but may not “see”.

* We changed the autocomplete system. Not by a lot but it was setup in a way that adding an extra query wasn’t possible. You’ll find the autocomplete works better and is less frustrating. Any feedback on the autocomplete is much appreciated from users.

* Image Align – We added another option to the “Frequent” menu. When dragging images you can now specify if you want the image left aligned or right aligned or neither. This comes in handy when designing your posts and this way you don’t just have an image sitting in the middle of your post.

* Bug Fix: Found an issue where the scrollbar may disappear or extend beyond from the field of view when requesting new results.

* Bug Fix / Change: Found an issue where only one page of Twitter results could be returned. Requesting a second page threw an error. Upon thinking about it more it only makes sense to return one page. You can still set the number of results you want but the goal of our software is curation (i.e. finding the best results) and not digging through pages of largely irrelevant Twitter results. Having the top tweets returned made this a no-brainer for us.

9/21/11 [1.0.6]

* Fixed an issue where some paying members were seeing ads in the software. So sorry for this error.

9/20/11 [1.0.5]

* Free version rollout – We disabled the trial version because we found it more effective to just have a limited free version instead of time-restrained trial. Our apologies to any users this effects.

* Free version includes ads from our partner BuySellAds.com and is limited to one content source.

* Auto login to CurationSoft.com now available from the software. Clicking Upgrade/Renew in the help menu will take you to your account instead of manually having to login.

9/6/11 [1.0.4]

* Found a major error with respect to autocomplete and new users. Broke the entire app. Our apologies for the problems and frustration this caused for new users. Thankfully, we caught it and acted quickly.

9/5/11 [1.0.3]

* Added Google News As Source
- Exciting! Now drag and drop news that is happening right now.

* Related Keywords (a.k.a Recommend Post Tags)
- We’re very excited about this feature! Now, when you do a search you’ll be sent a list of “Related Keywords” for your post. These are based on actual related searches performed in the search engines so there’s traffic for these terms. No more trying to decide on good keywords for your tags when you post. CurationSoft does it for you!

* The Progress Monitor
- We added a social element to CurationSoft so you can share your progress with the world. Now, you’ll see how many posts you’ve made with CurationSoft and have the opportunity to share on Facebook and Twitter. Help us out and tell your friends how much you love CurationSoft

* The Frequent Menu
- The requests we get most often: Can I keep the window on top? How do I make links open in a new window? With that in mind, we added those options to a new menu, plus drag option for related keywords. We put them in a ‘frequent menu’ because it’s the kind of thing you’ll change on the fly and often. We think it’s a good approach and will save you time and that’s what CurationSoft is all about. NOTE: These are session based variables which means they always default to false and must be set each time the application is run.

* Keyboard Shortcuts
- Now you can scroll through results with up and down arrow keys. Try it out: do a search and then immediately use the down arrow to scroll through results. We think you’ll like this improvement!

* Removed System Tray Functionality
- We found this small feature was confusing users and really served no purpose at this point so we removed it.

* Updated Help Menu Items
- Added a shortcut for license and better descriptions

* Autocomplete Bug Fixes
- Improved the user experience for the autocomplete box. We have a brand new engine for autocompletion and it’s much faster and efficient. The good news is that all of your old data is saved so it’s a seamless upgrade.

* Old Fashioned Copy And Paste
- This is one of those, “it should just probably be there” features. When you right click on an item in the search results you will see a ‘Copy HTML’ menu item and that puts the same data on your clipboard that you usually drag and drop into an editor. Hey, it’s the small things that count right?

* Improved Docking UX
- Fixed a pesky issue where the docking button disappeared when you docked the screen. Should have caught this a long time ago. Sorry about that.

* Menu Styling
- We had a couple of styling issues that needed fixing. Nothing too important here.
