Ever have one of those days? Sure everyone does, but that doesn’t mean you can put any ol’ update out there and not check to make sure that it works correctly! Looks like we did just that.
On October 25th in our rush to push out an update for SideNoteIM we didn’t check all our features and that left you having to download a patch to fix our mistake. For that we are very sorry.
We can’t promise that all your downloads will be bug free, but we promise to catch the ones that stick out like a sore thumb, or a big bug!
When you woke up yesterday, drank your second cup of coffee, and tried to send a SideNote to your boss, you couldn't, because her computer wasn't online.
But today you downloaded the new 2.0 version of SideNotesIM and swooish! Message typed, queued, and up for delivery at the very moment she first wiggles her mouse.
Not only that, you can see at a single glance who's in, who's out, who's going to be fired (just kidding), and who's offline. Plus a bunch more that we're only going to hint at because you really should just download the new version.
Those enhancements that you've been asking to have incorporated into your office messaging system? Well, they're coming. As in soon.
Version 2 of SideNotesIM is in its final beta testing phase and will be taking the place of Version 1 within the next month. Included as a new feature is the ability to see which users are online and which are offline, as well as the ability to send messages to offline users. You'll also be able to set the User Window to show each user's status (in/out) as it changes through the day. And so much more, but we'll save that for later.
If you're a current Version 1 user, don't despair - your obsolescence is not only planned, it is inescapable. But upgrading is free. All current Verson 1 users won't be charged to switch over to Version 2 once it becomes available.
There. That wasn't too painful now.
