My apologies in advance if anyone experiences issues.

Cookie updated to v5.1

Hi guys,

Cookie v5.1 has been released on the Mac App Store, and on my own servers.

I decided to give it the v5.1 version number, as I feel that while not a lot has “seemingly” changed, there are enough changes to warrant to new version number. For instance, I have integrated the license window (SweetP Store version) and the About window (both the MAS, and my Store) into the Preferences window. This drastically cuts down on window bloat consolidating everything in one place, and making the UI much cleaner. Also Ive worked hard to fix a long standing bug where all favorites could potentially be deleted – this proved to be very hard to track down (as I couldn’t reproduce it at all). Ive also included some performance optimisations, which should make Cookie more responsive, and less prone to beach-balls.

Here is the complete list of changes

  • tweaked Preferences Window
  • integrated About menu into Preferences
  • performance optimizations
  • fix an issue with favorites
  • Sparkle updated

If you find Cookie useful, please let your friends know about it, and don’t forget to leave a review on the Mac App Store – as this is what keeps development moving forward.

If you find bugs, or have suggestions for improvements, please get in touch via Facebook, Twitter, email or best of all the support forums.

Xliff Editor gets a minor update to v1.2.1

Xliff editor has just been updated on the Mac App Store, and has only one minor change. The search highlighting behaviour works now as expected when the app is in focus, and when it loses focus. its a little hard to explain, and maybe no one will really notice the difference… but the old behaviour was bugging me, as it was non-standard.

you can get Xliff Editor v1.2.1 exclusively on the Mac App Store:

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.
