Version 1.1.0 Released!

Changes to Literature Room Organizer include:

  • New Feature: The ability to have LRO automatically resize to fit your computer's screen resolution!!! Current LRO users must turn this on under Settings for your congregation. New users to LRO will have this on by default.
  • Added: Progress bar when closing LRO (just to show you it's actually doing something, rather than hanging). Also progress bar when importing data after an upgrade.
  • Added: Restrictions that prevent the use of certain symbols when entering Congregation, Publisher, Item Names, & Item Symbols. This restriction will ensure no one enters something that could cause issues with code. Item Name & Item Symbols are more lenient, but none of these can accept the following symbols: ~`#$%^*+={}\|;/<>
  • Added: Custom toolbar when viewing reports.
  • Fixed: Reports now open maximized.
  • Fixed: Better error messages here and there.
  • Fixed: The method the System-understood Stock "person" is created and used. This fixed an issue where only about 120 publishers would be available to choose from on the screens that use the publisher list.
  • Changed: Maximum order quantity is now 99,999.
  • Removed: Feature where Stock items are automatically Received & Delivered. I decided this would be too confusing of a feature.
  • Minor cosmetic changes and fixes.

LRO is designed for a computer resolution of 1024 x 768.  With the new Rezise feature, it will fit no matter what kind of resolution you have!  However, it does not look as good when on a smaller resolution (shrunk down) and may even be hard to read, but everything will fit on the screen.  If you don't like this, it can be turned off via Settings.  For users who have screens larger than 1024 x 768, it should look fantastic!  Widescreen monitors work as well, though if you see anything that seems "offset" a bit, that's a consequence of having widescreen and can't be fixed. Current LRO users must turn this ON under Settings.  New users will have it ON by default.

I've been doing a TON of programming at my place of employment.  I have been working on 7 DIFFERENT programs at the same time. Due to that fact, I'm very worn out right now!!  You can imagine the potential for confusion and such, though I've been very careful with LRO and tested it well.  But I must cut back and take a break for a little while...probably a week.  And if I continue with heavy development at my job, then LRO's updates may get skimpier OR further apart.

As always, let me know if you find any bugs or have suggestions for improvement! :-)
