A new release of Cyotek Palette Editor is now available which focuses on getting data in and out of the editor. New features the ability to print palettes, import to and from CSS stylesheets, and the ability to define custom templates for exporting palettes into text based formats.
Introducing a new advanced feature for WebCopy where link detection can be extended to transform matching values into new values.
Back in 2014, I posted a sneak peak highlighting upcoming Palette Editor features; chiefly color scheme functionality and undo/redo support. While the undo/redo feature was deployed with the next build of the software, color schemes have been languishing incomplete and only available within debug builds for over two years. I'm pleased to say that finally that color schemes are going to see the light of day as the first step in making Palette Editor more than just a mere editor.
Since CopyTools was first introduced, it has supported the copying and moving files only. While files could be deleted, this was only as part of a mirrored profile job and not something you could directly control. CopyTools now has a new dedicated job type for deleting files from a source folder, along with new options for including files by date. This post provides a brief overview of the UI changes related to the new options.
As with most software, CopyTools is by no means flawless, and recent (internal) builds compounded the issue rather than improving it. Although it was originally supposed to support remote sources such as FTP servers and Azure blob storage, the model was too rigid and in order to add this support would require massive changes to the program's core, instead of supporting the extensibility model that most Cyotek products offer.
As a result of this, for the last few months we've essentially ignored all other products while we worked on what has now become CopyTools version 2 and we can now offer the first alpha build of version 2.0.
Now that Microsoft have ended support for .NET 3.5 and 4.5, it's time to move all Cyotek products to use .NET 4.6.
With various (in theory) safeguards in place, and concious that sometimes there is quite a delay between official releases, we've decided to have the latest CI build for supported products automatically uploaded to cyotek.com each day, allowing adventurous end users to get access to fixes sooner than normal releases.
