  • Omea Reader no more requires entering a license. Obvious blooper. First, it was useless for us (since we had no ability to process information obtained from license-related forms), besides it caused numerous mismatches in navigating users on our website.

Filter Condition/Views/Rules

Features listed here are given alltogether instead of being distributed over the separate topics (by plugin).

...

  • “Show Clipping” and “Annotate Resource” dialogs are redesigned to resemble each other in layout. Additionally we tried to make it possible to create a new category from any place where it might be necessary.

FireFox Plugin

  • It works again!!! (with FF 1.5)

Text Index

  • New menu item (in Actions menu): Pause/Resume text indexing. This allows user to have more explicit control over the Omea (and the computer at whole) performance.

Optimizations

  • Reduced memory consumption
  • Reduced hard disk reading/writing
  • Improved multithreading and UI responsiveness

  • Feed updating consumes less system resources
  • Faster import of ICQ history

Omea-Wide Changes

  • Opening a link in a new Web browser window is now performed asynchronously, so that Omea won’t hang if the Web browser or some other application is not responding at the moment.
  • Drag’n’Drop reordering of resource trees: it’s now possible to change the order of items in the lists and trees with the mouse, as well as reset the user order back to lexicographical sorting.
