Apple just sent us this:
Meaning Tyler 1.3.3 has been approved by the review gods and is now available on the App Store as an update.
While we are still working on several features on somebugs, feedback so far has been good. If you encounter any bugs, have an idea for the next killer-feature or just want to check out what we’re working on, feel free to check out our new (open) bug tracker.
We have just submitted Tyler 1.3.3 for Apple’s review.
This is the first major update toTyler in a while fixing a ton of bugs that were reported to us after the revival.
The new version should be available in about a week.
We are working on fixing more bugs, adding new features and creating a non-AppStore version with a demo.
I would personally like to thank everyone who submitted a bug-report, feedback, general input or who simply waited for us to address the most pressing bugs.
As I said, we are working on more features and fixes but if there is anything on your mind, please don’t hesitate to let us know at helpdesk.reflare.com.
Bugs fixed in this version:
The last few hours have been very exciting. Tyler received more attention in the last day than during the entire time since its release.
We have received a lot of tweets, mails and questions in our support queue as well as found several discussions in various groups, boards and forums.
This thread is meant to address some of the common questions and most importantly answer concerns regarding bugs and future versions.
A really short history (Relevant stuff. No, really.)
Tyler was developed as a side-project as we are tiling window manger users on the Linux systems we use and thought it would be nice to have one for OS X as well. When Tyler was launched it received fairly narrow attention so we basically kept developing it for our internal usage.
Then Apple introduced Sandboxing and put the future of Tyler (which relies heavily on not being sandboxed) in question.
Still, we hoped that Apple would back pedal from Sandboxing so we put the project on ice until further notice.
When Apple decided to postpone the Sandboxing deadline yet once again, we decided that we had hibernated long enough. Tyler was needed and we were no longer willing to wait for Apple’s whims. So we resurrected Tyler and started preparations for a new version - with the App Store or without.
“I am using Tyler and the following bug / issue / crash”
In a nutshell, this is because Tyler was developed for Snow Leopard and has not received relevant updates since due to the Sandbox related hybernation.
“I think Tyler really needs the following feature:”
Send us a message at helpdesk.reflare.com and we’ll add it to the stack.
“When will the next version be released?”
We’re still scrambling to catch up with all the emails and requests but the best guess at the moment is in about 3-4 weeks.
“I bought Tyler and now I have bugs. This sucks!”
You are absolutely correct. If you are willing to wait for the next version, that would be awesome (and we’ll pet a panda in your name somewhere, somehow).
Also, as our attempt to apologize for your trouble, if you send us a screenshot of Tyler running on your machine, we’ll give you a promo code to one of our other apps at your choice (as long as we have promo codes available). Most of our other apps are for iOS.
“So what will you do if Apple enforces Sandboxing?”
We will make Tyler available for direct purchasing outside of the App Store. All existing users will be able to switch over for free in that case.
“Will there be a demo once Tyler is available outside of the App Store?”
“I like turtles!”
So do we.
“My question isn’t answered here!”
Post it in the comments to this post and we will do our best to address it.
“I want to rant!”
Post it in the comments as well to get the rage out. (We won’t address it though)
Anonymous asked: 1. Does Progress Bar also show progress in the menu icon ? 2. Please change URL from localhost on App Store when one clicks on your website.
1. Not right now. I have added it to the suggestion list.
2. Thanks for pointing that out. It’s fixed.
