Latest Build: 68 Fixed Launching Crash

Download:Download Build 68, Posted on 3/5/07
Some people have had their libraries get corrupted which prevents MacCaching from loading again. I have implemented a simple hack that attempts a recovery (which only works sometimes) and then gives the option to start over with a blank library.

You (the user) also has the option to send me your Library.xml file, to see if I can manually fix it.

it still isn’t clear to me why some libraries become corrupted in the first place.

Latest Build: 67 Memory Leaks Stage 1

Download: MacCaching Build 67
Turns out there are some memory leaks in the XML processor I am using. This would prevent large libraries from opening. It is advisable to re-launch MacCaching after importing a GPX file (especially a large one.)

Latest Build: 07-0219 Critical Refresh Fix

Download:Download Build 07-0219
Download:Download Build 07-0219_2 (Minor changes if you downloaded the “first” 0219 release, get the new one.)

If you are using any of the Beta builds, upgrade to this one ASAP.

The XML Processor has another bug in it. Originally I was going to promote the complier I am using for MacCaching. However, I’ve encountered so many critical bugs, I can’t justify giving those guys any credit!

If you were getting a crash after editing caches, this release will fix that. The crashes didn’t cause any data loss, but caused lots of crashing.

Build: 07_0122 – Improved Performance

Download Link: MacCaching Build: 07_1222
I roughly calculated a 2x speed increase when loading Cachelists.

I’m still looking into ways to make MacCaching more responsive. This might be the fastest I can make it until I move to Xcode. Let me know if you notice any problems viewing caches. The “Show Export Dialog” is still non-functional. Eventually all “exports” will go through this dialog, so I’m giving it a lot of care.

Build: 07_0119 – Fixed Export Problem

Download: MacCaching Build: 07_0119

Internally I have a thread called “GenerateGPX.” I realized today that it would return before finished processing the data. This meant exports and transfers to GPS might not contain all of the right waypoints. This is a quick fix.

Build: 07_0115 – New Import / Export Handler

Download: Latest MacCaching Build

Primarly, this build includes a new handler for Importing and Exporting files. If you’re having trouble with certain files, send them to me so I can take a look.

Added Public Forums

I do not discourage using the comment system on the main part of the website. However for deeper questions and discussions, I have added a public forum to the site–forums.maccaching.com. I encourage everyone to post questions and comments, even ones you have already sent to me.

Check out the Usage Surveys. They are an easy way to give some feedback about MacCaching. The other thing I would like to build up is the Help and Questions Forum. Eventually I want to create a robust FAQ (and help system). This is a good place to help contribute what will go there.
