OpenTodoList 3.8 Has Been Released
After a lot of monthly releases in the past, there has been no update since April 2017. However, no reason to worry. There’s a larger update in the pipeline, which requires some preparation in the form of a new library called qlmdb - a Qt wrapper around the lmdb C library, which is going to be used in a future version of OpenTodoList.
While most work went into bringing up
qlmdb, there were also some bug fixes in the app, which now become available.
- There was a bug which caused the user interface to constantly be redrawn. This could significantly drain your battery on mobile devices and laptops. #201.
- The process of setting up a new synchronized library has been improved. Before, when entering e.g. a wrong password, there was no indication that something went wrong. The Validate button simply wont vanish and the OK button never appeared. Now, there’s some better, visual indication to the user that something went wrong. #200
- On Windows, make sure you have proper OpenGL support. The app strictly requires OpenGL to work. Most notably, when running within a Virtual Machine, chances are that starting the app will result in an error.
