Dynamic Templates - Version 3 is in the works
First, a question for the Mac folks: Is anyone out there still running anything less than Leopard (10.5) ? Maintaining compatibility for 10.4 places a bunch of limitations on what I can/cannot do, so before making a decision that could cause a lot of screaming, I felt it best to consult the community.
Now on to other stuff:
Recent additions to the Qt libraries have introduced the ability to import and work with iCalendar files. Once I wrap my brain around these features, I should be able to give you templates that will import your calendar info. Before anyone gripes, iCalender is a platform independent data standard ( reference http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5545 ) and every planner/calendar software I have seen to date can export iCalendar files -- they end with .ics -- and a lot of them can import.
Another feature I plan to pound on is the use of a small, in-memory database (reference http://www.sqlite.org/ ) for such stuff as a collection of inspirational quotes to be randomly placed on template pages and junque like that.
Those will be the main internal bells-and-whistles in this wave. In addition, I should be able to add some more templates of various types to the mix.
As always, your constructive comments and suggestions are welcome. Rude comments will be responded to or ignored as appropriate. You all know me well enough by now to know when to duck. :)
