Let’s see, I spent last week in learning UML and sketching the new item system. I’ve tried to learn UML before but for some reason it’s difficult. The reason why it’s so difficult is probably because there aren’t many sources that explains it well. Maybe I should buy a book or something. Anyway, I found this site which explains the basics of different UML diagrams pretty well. I also (finally) found a nice program that let’s you draw diagrams easily but still has a powerful set of features, Visual Paradigm. It’s a commercial product but they offer a free community version that fits just fine for my needs.
This week I did some work with CE. Quite random stuff, still having troubles in concentration. Biggest things added are Extension colors and Thumbnail caching. Extension colors mean that you can assign different font styles/colors to different file types.
Thumbnail caching saves thumbnails and loads them from the cache next time you visit the folder. It speeds up browsing quite a bit. By default, thumbnails are saved in the settings folder. You can change the location of that folder (StorageRepositoryFolder) or choose to save per folder (StorageType) from Advanced settings: FileView -> Thumbnails.
I also added options to change the font and background color of the FileView. The FontSize setting is now removed so if you are using custom font size, you need to change it again. The line height is now calculated automatically depending on the font. Notice, this happens only if the height setting in Advanced -> FileView -> CellSizes is -1. I’ll have to add similar font and background color options to the panels also.
Oh and, the list of Advanced Settings is now fully collapsed at opening. There’s so many options that it began to be a bit difficult to find things in there. The category should expand on a single click but at the moment it doesn’t, I’ll see if I can fix that. In the mean while, you can use double click to expand/collapse categories, or just click on the + sign.
