Important info for users running 2.3.2a on Windows

It has come to my attention that the system tray icon restore behaviour is still broken in this release, and may in fact actually be worse than previous versions.
I believe this is actually due to a broken compile, as the code added did work during testing. Unfortunately I cannot release a recompiled build until early next week as I have to create a fresh Virtual Machine of XP and the FahMon build environment owing to my current VM now being broken beyond all usefulness.

If you do experience significant problems with the current build of 2.3.2a, switch back to 2.3.2 until I can recompile 2.3.2a correctly again.

Please note: This issue does not affect Linux or OS X users.

FahMon 2.3.2a Released. Now with OS X Support!

FahMon 2.3.2a is now available for download. See the download page for details on how to get it.

For a comprehensive list of changes please view the changelog which is linked to from the home page and the download page.

What's new in this release:

  • The endian-swap bug has been squashed so you can now monitor PPC Macs from Windows again.
  • Several annoying Windows bugs have been squashed, so FahMon now restores it's frame state from the system tray and taskbar correctly.
  • FahMon now runs on Mac OS X!

My thanks to several members of Team Mac OS X who helped test and debug the OS X verison.

Several translation updates were missed for this version, so if you notice missing translations whilst using FahMon and feel like updating them, send them along to me and I'll incorporate them into the builds on the website.

As always if you find any bugs in FahMon please report them using trac.

Now some eye-candy:

Comments system added

I'm trying out a comment system for the news section of the site, so feel free to use it if you will.
The captcha can sometimes appear completely unreadable, so I recommend you refresh the page until it is readable and then start writing your comments.
Hopefully I can get that fixed.

The software powering the comments is a nifty set of php scripts called blogkomm which I've integrated into nanoblogger.

The download page has been updated with links to the v2.3.2 translations for Portuguese (pt_PT) and German (de_DE). Thanks to Mark Gerber for the German translation.

Installation for Windows is simple, but for Linux it can be a bit more tricky. Read the wiki page linked on the download page for precise instructions.
