MacJournal 7.1.1

 MacJournal 7.1.1 is the first release of MacJournal compiled for Apple Silicon. If you have a new Mac with Apple Silicon chip, MacJournal will now be able to run without any translation using Rosetta. For everyone else, this release fixes an issue with colors in dark mode causing text and/or the insertion point to disappear. If you have a custom background color or picture, the colors should be as visible as they used to be. There are some other rare crashes fixed as well.

MacJournal 7.1

 This release is largely the same as 7.1b1 (but with a small performance change for the Markdown preview window). The big changes here for users of the new Big Sur OS release are fixes for some toolbar items and for the Inspector area. See the notes for 7.1b1 for more details about what is in here.

MacJournal 7.1b1

 This release adds some new features while continuing to include bug fixes. On the feature side, an entry's status should take up less room in the Sidebar, added a button in the Inspector to show the Tags sheet more easily, entry text should be inverted in dark mode, added controls to control the search options in more places, and added a way to control sort order from the contextual menu of a journal. On the bug fix side, a crash unlocking journals is fixed, using Services from a web browser should grab the page URL again, the close button in a tab should be fixed, the book UI has been disabled to fix an issue, and other various fixes. This release also moves the minimum OS requirement up to 10.14.4 (the policy is to support the current release and one prior so this move is well overdue). A number of issues on Big Sur have been fixed as well.

MacJournal 7.0.4

 This release fixes a few issues with the 7.0.3 release, most notably a loss of keyboard focus when the auto-save happens for a new entry for the first time. It also fixes issues with converting entries to plain text and back. There are various other crash fixes and minor fixes. Please let me know of any issues by using the Report item in the Help menu.

MacJournal 7.0.4b1

This is a small bugfix release to clean up one or two issues from the changes in 7.0.3 to fix a data loss issue. It fixes an issue converting an entry to plain text (and back to rich text). It also fixes issues losing keyboard focus shortly after starting a new entry. There are also layout improvements for the Inspector.

MacJournal 7.0.3b2

This fixes some issues with with Navigation modes, like Tags. There's also a new preference to disable listening for syncing with iOS devices if you want to avoid opening a potential connection on your Mac. There are also some more changes to make auto-saving more reliable, as well as a second backup file for saved entry text as it is saved. The last 20 non-encrypted entries will be saved in an additional backup.

MacJournal 7.0.3b1

<a href="">Get it here</a>.

This is a small bug-fix release for 7.0.2. There is a change to how the UI is set when changing selection to reuse fewer parts of the UI to try and resolve an issue where auto-save stops working. Please try this release and let me know if you run into issues with saving.

There are also fixes for Batch Change, Focused Editing, and the items in the default toolbar (the Quick Look item is replaced with the Sidebar item).

MacJournal 7.0.1

MacJournal 7.0.1 has been released! This is mostly a bug fix release but has a few small improvements, such as new toolbar items for styles, a new column in the Entries list for links, and an easier way to get to the Export All menu item. It also should fix a bug with displaying your entry text at zoom levels over 100%. There is also a new Danish localization!

I plan to make releases like this more frequent in the future to avoid critical fixes building up so expect more releases soon!

MacJournal 7.0.1b5

I debated making this the final release but decided to do one more beta before shipping the final release in a week, hopefully with no changes. This beta fixes issues with Focused Editing, the unlock sheet showing up again right after unlocking, text separators, some issues dragging entries, a VoiceOver change, an issue opening MacJournal links, and an issue with the resulting filename after exporting entries. This release also adds a new help article about tags. I hope to keep adding help articles over time so please let me know if there's a topic that you think should have one.

Status Update

There hasn't been a lot going on in this space for a little while unfortunately and the reason is that I've been sick for several weeks now. It's nothing serious, but I likely had the flu and it's been keeping me down since mid-December. I haven't been able to respond to any email or get the 7.0.1 release out as I had planned. However, I'm feeling better now and I'm going to try and catch up with what I missed. My apologies if I missed your email while I was away and I will try to get to everything in time. I'm also going to try and get the release out this month; it should be largely done. I hope you all had a good New Year and here's to a healthier 2020!
