It seems that 2.6 finally has a release date! Sort of! Well, if you can call "next week" an exact release date. ☺ It looks like all of the pieces will come together early next week and then after some additional testing it will be ready to go out the door. I may do a kind of "final candidate" release for some select people just to make sure as well (mostly localizers to double-check integration). I may post the download link on here too, but I won't be putting it in the in-app update mechanism. I worry that too many updates close together will cause some people to miss the second (and more important) update.
Things have been going well in MacJournal-land. I haven't actually had to touch the code in a few days now. After a few issues with the new system for not saving back to disk when not necessary were worked out, things have been smooth. It's what I like to see leading up to a major release like this. I'll just be testing stuff over the weekend and exercise parts of the app that I haven't seen in a while to make sure they haven't been broken accidentally.
For the Romantic language speakers out there, there will be both French and Spanish localizations included (that was a point of concern noted here earlier).
And for fans of all of the hidden preferences in 2.6, I have one last trick up my sleeve for you, but I'll give more details when 2.6 actually comes out.
Onward and upward!
