Back from the dead! Well, no, not quite. I did find a few hours recently to fix a small number of very rare crashes, though. So I took the time to roll a release. Unfortunately, my circumstances haven’t changed in a way that’d allow me to work on PackRat properly again, so that’ll be it [...]

This release is mostly thanks to Mark Sunderland, who thankfully pointed out to me that PackRat’s lending feature does not work on HTC Hero phones that were upgraded to Android 2.1-update1. That’s now fixed — and kudos to Mark for helping me circumvent that bug in HTC’s upgrade! Other than that, I managed to solve [...]

It’s been a busy few weeks since the last release, and that prevented me from pushing updates recently. But I’m glad to say that nothing terribly bad seems to have happened since then. This release fixes one fairly strange issue: if you added an item to the loan list, then from there to the wishlist, [...]

Another week or so passed, another bug fix update. I’m getting into a rhythm here, hope I can keep this up. The good news is that the overall number of bugs is dwindling. The bad news is that as some bugs get fixed, the route gets cleared for you to encounter others. This week’s batch [...]

This release fixes a number of lesser bugs and one major one that seems to have escaped me and other people who reported issues. Switchbreak had a keener eye, and spotted that all of a sudden, smart shelves were editable — but once you saved your changes, they’d convert into regular shelves. The biggest change [...]

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: PackRat’s users are awesome! In my rage to squash bugs in yesterdays 1.2.1 release, I managed to introduce a new one, and didn’t see it before pushing the build to the Market. It’s a fairly obvious one, even: you can’t add items from any of the options [...]

I didn’t want to wait. Since I pushed 1.2.0, my crash log database has been filling up more and more, and that had to be changed. It’s kind of irrational, given that most of the bugs existed in PackRat for months and nobody bothered to report them, but hey, bugs still bother me. There’s nothing [...]

Alright, I’m growing impatient. This release has been sitting on my harddisk for a while, so I’m pushing it out. Unfortunately Chinese localization is incomplete in this release. The awesome guys over at nd.com.cn who perform that localization for free1 haven’t got around to that yet. Normally I’d be a lot more patient, but I [...]

A bugfix release version 1.1.2 has just hit Android Market! Thanks to PackRat’s awesome users, I can fix bugs even when I don’t find time for major development work. One such user sent in crash log, which shows that PackRat crashes on certain book searches. The bug is actually quite embarrassing — enough so that [...]

I just pushed 1.1.1 to the Android Market and AndAppStore. Updates should hit your phone Very Soon (TM). One of PackRat’s users, Sean Glass, was nice enough to provide me with a crash log that let me analyze a crash he was experiencing — and by the reviews I read, he was not the only [...]
