Cookie v5.0.10

another day another update.
you may be wondering why there is another update so soon after the last, well its a combination of factors – I have some spare time at the moment, this update was too good to hold on to, and the Apple review was so quick its not funny… 2hrs from upload to release in fact – crazy!

so what was so good it couldn’t wait?
well I had an email from a user a couple of days ago, about some performance hits they were seeing with the latest version (5.0.9 at that point) and it lead me down the path of reviewing some old code. Well it seems it was a great idea, as I managed to make some very minor code adjustments which produced some huge performance benefits! I couldn’t wait to get this out to all of you, so I uploaded it to Apple almost immediately.

In a nutshell what i changed was this:
previously all cookie changes were added to a queue to update the interface. so you can imagine if say 100 cookie changes occured – each change would update the ui sequentially. and you would see the spinner for however long it would take Cookie to update the interface 100x!
This was a big mistake of mine (long ago) and i hadn’t looked at that particular block of code for a while.

So, now when a change occurs, i destroy all previous updates in the queue, so that there is a maximum of only ever 1 update waiting in the queue (the newest one) + plus the update currently occurring. This basically cuts out all the useless/uneeded updates and just gives the current state of cookies on disk. Which is what we really want.

you can get Cookie v 5.0.10 from the Mac App Store, and the SweetP servers now.

Cookie Beta v5.0.8.7

I have a new beta available:
SweetP Productions Support thread

it includes the following fixes, and will become v5.0.9 assuming no glaring bugs are discovered.

  • Vivaldi Typed History now removed along with History
  • tooltips for table column icons
  • localization fixes

Hopefully the tooltips will provide users with(minimal) but useful indicators for some of the more abstract table columns in Cookie. (the columns only displaying icons).
I also added support for removing Vivaldi’s “Typed History” – what a security issue that one was! it wasn’t easy, as the data was stored in a (seemingly obscure) database format… but it should be cleared along side Vivaldi’s regular history now. *note this only works when Vivaldi is closed – as the database is locked while open.
