September 9th, 2018 - Hey everyone! 18.0.5 was dropped last weekend with a lot of updates, with 18.0.6 in the works. I'm focusing on implementing the ability to delete vendors, products, and assets with some minor UI edits for the Update page. The UI edits will lead into a full Change Log screen for full update history. After all this, I'll be looking into the Tip system for 18.0.7 to feature it's bare-bones implementation. Our goal with it is to dynamically check for any new tips and cache them local for when features get updated or changed.
For a full breakdown of what was in 18.0.5 and everything else on the update list, please check out the Future Roadmap. If there's anything you don't see listed that you want to make sure we get to, please submit it over to us using the contact form at Contact.
Please note that licensing is currently implemented! If you have any issues with activation, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get things resolved for you.
July 29th, 2018 - Hey Everyone, I've put in a ton of stuff for this next build and am wrapping up with the import feature before pushing it out. The import will support .CSV, .TXT, .XLS, .XLSX, .SSDB, and .VDB5 (new format), but this update will only fully be implemented for the last two (.SSDB and .VDB5) so you can import a database file from the previous major release and merge any databases with the current version. I don't think the second would be used any time soon, but it allowed me to think through the process and support a what-if scenario that will likely come up as an enhancement down the line.
Off the top of my head, I don't recall everything else we have in for the next update, but it was a lot of proper setting support; look forward to the full patch notes to detail each item!
To give everyone a heads up, I don't plan on making any improvements over the upcoming weekend as I'll be out of town on vacation; making my priority to get things out prior to then or at least during travel. You'll hear back regardless by the second as I'll want to let you know what's going on if I don't have the update out before then. I'll do my best to get the update out ASAP, just need to wrap my head around bringing in the embedded items for import. Until then, thank you all for your input and support!
July 17th, 2018 - Hey everyone! A user let us know that there was an issue with moving the database file, even accessing the feature, so I looked into it and believe we were able to address the underside of what was going on. There were some other enhancements, but this was the major bug fix for this release. Those minor enhancements were implementing product lock,
To automatically update to the latest development builds (beta releases) while we're in this phase (and down the line too), please go into your settings and enable the options for Check for update on startup and Allow check for development builds. With these enabled for when SerialSafe launches, it'll check the server to see if there are any new builds to install. When there are new releases, you'll be able to review the patch notes for that specific build, that way you know what all's different between the releases. Right now we only have things setup to display the notes related to the version downloaded but plan on adding in all notes since the previous official release once it's more realistic.
For those looking for a manual download of 188.8.131.52, please use: http://www.2logicalsolutions.com/installers/SerialSafe_184.108.40.206.msi
Next thing I want to make sure is clear is that we updated the icon associated with going to your Account Management screen! It was a minor change, but it should make things more fluid instead of the previous mess that things were.
That should be everything, please reach out again if you see any other critical items you want us to focus on. Otherwise, we'll lean towards the order that the list on the roadmap. As always, thank you so much for your help!
July 15th, 2018 - Hi everyone! It's been a few days since the initial beta release and well, there's been a few patches to the beta over just the weekend. Biggest thing would be a fully implemented ticketing system for reporting bugs, submitting enhancement requests, and creating a support request. With all the issues we've been seeing lately regarding people not receiving our emails, this was a huge priority to ensure a stable means of communication. Please download this latest update from the following link: http://www.2logicalsolutions.biz/installers/SerialSafe_220.127.116.11.msi
Regarding the ticketing system, you'll want to create an account which will eventually be tied into your forum login - when implemented. I hope the screenshots below, along with captions, will explain the process you'll want to follow for creating your account and logging in. Once your logged into your account, you'll be able to review your tickets and post updates.
I'll get the next steps outlines on the Future Roadmap page for quick access so you know what our next steps will be, barring any items reported. If you see something you're wanting on the roadmap but you have an immediate need for that to be put in, please create an enhancement request so we can talk directly with you on how you're wanting it to function. This dialog will let us confirm the feature exists on the roadmap and will let us work with you on validating it specifically.
I'll also work on updating the About the Developer page to get you all background on what happened that things ended up taking much longer than expected for both release and updates of the beta. I believe this should answer most of the questions that were asked, as well as clear up ones that may only have been thought and not said. Things here will be updated after the future roadmap.
I think that's everything I have regarding an actual update, so please feel free to reach out!
