Weekly Release: Updated Certificate, Bug Fixes
This week's release is pretty light-weight as we've been focusing on MyBalsamiq, our web app. Reactions to our first public screencast of the app were very kind, which is encouraging. I'm not yet totally in love with the app myself, so we have some more work to do. Stay tuned here for updates.
A renewed code-signing certificate
The main change in this week's release of Mockups is a renewed security code-signing certificate for the Desktop application. This is how we make sure you know that what you're installing comes from us and is not a virus or something. Boring stuff but important. This is a delicate change so if you hit any issues upgrading let us know and we'll get right on it. We tested all cases we could think of, but you never know with these things.
- Mockups for Desktop: "Save As..." now defaults to the same folder of the original mockup. Thanks eeichinger for this perfectly sensible suggestion.
- Mockups for Confluence: fixed a bug with mockups not showing up when exporting your wiki pages to PDF. Thanks Steve Enoch for the patience and the debugging help!
- Mockups for FogBugz OnDemand: the plugin comes with free Mockups for Desktop licenses, which we used to send you manually after we received your first payment. We forgot to send some in the past, so we decided to automate it and have the license key show up in the plugin's configuration page instead, like this:
Please wait a few days until FogCreek updates our plugin to the latest version on their servers.
- Mockups for Desktop: significantly sped up command-line operations.
- Mockups for Desktop: you can now specify an additional parameter to the command-line to tell Mockups to log to a specific path instead of the default.
