BookShelf 2.1 submitted

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

Version 2.1 has been submitted to Apple.  Now we wait to see whether the Vatsyayana Curse will hit me this time, having dodged it twice before.

The new feature list in 2.1 is fairly extensive.  Top on the list are:

  • Searching
  • Dictionary support
  • Customizable color themes
  • Copy & Paste
  • Parental Controls
  • Table of Contents (not just a link in the document)

And of course the usual handful of stability & performance improvements.

With any luck, 2.1 should arrive for updating in the next couple of weeks.

OpenSource ShelfServer released

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

It took me long enough, but source for the ShelfServer is finally
available.  If you’d like to setup your own server, there are hooks to
customize security, and some other assorted goodies.

Source links are here:

The source is made available under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 3.

Please post any questions or issues with the source release in the
support forum:

The source release is of course provided as-is, without warranty,
and is officially unsupported. I’ll do anything I can to help, but if
it breaks, you get to keep the pieces.
