Backround Cycler version (alpha 2) released

Backround Cycler version 4.9 alpha 2 (for 5.0) is out Changes are:

  1. Changed some of the Core to prep for access to a web source.
  2. Changed the way the FileList loads the files
    • In a future release it will use XML, have test functions that are not called in the release
    • Changed the checking if the file exists, for speed, I check if the file exists on a change background call
  3. Added a Check Subfolders check box to the images list so you can change it in that window and not have to go to the behavior section to change it. Picture here

Changes in the Upcoming release

A problem with the SVN server and my client SVN app cleared most of my changes from version 4.0 to the alpha release, making updates slow to come.

Changes in alpha 2 will seem like nothing in the GUI but i have scraped ability to change the pictures list it will now always be in Detail view. Another key change is i have sorted some of the classes in a way that seems to make the application run faster.  I am hoping to have alpha 2 released next week.


Update on Web images

I am looking into using Picasa to get images. At the moment this plan is only a idea but after BC alpha 2 is released i will start testing that idea out
