Announcing CityDesk 2.0 Beta
The 2.0 beta is here!
It works! The first thing my small brain could think of to do was to change the properties of a template to rename the extra fields. In my case that is really going to help.
I didn't mention that undo now seems to UNDO! I needed that real bad.
The "What's New List" looks like a dream come true. I can't wait to try it all! So you listened after all ... ;-) Thank you!
Just watched the demos and they're great. Sound and presentation. I especially enjoyed the relaxed attitude.
One thing that struck me was that although I can print the modifiedDate in templates, loops, etc, I can't do things like list all articles modified in the last 30 days. I can only list the last, say, 10 articles sorted by modifiedDate.
It was rude of me to post a suggestion without thanking the Fog Creek team for such a great upgrade! Sorry about that.
I'm going to steal the backup feature in it's entirety. OK?
Thanks Joel. I appreciate you getting the urgent features out to make current users lives easier. Plus you made it a no-brainer price wise. I will try to put www.valleyofthegeeks.com through the upgrade process and use some of the new scripting features to reduce site maintenance. Even though the image editor is pretty minor, I know it will come in handy as I often need to crop and resize images to make them fit the layout.
Darren, you've been able to do that since CityDesk 1.
I agree with Darren. CityDesk 2 has a lot of great features & updates, all of them aimed squarely at the things we've been commenting on and complaining about in the forum.
A couple of comments on the help file.
Marktaw, I know you can do that stuff with filedDate - what I was asking for was the ability to do it with modifiedDate.
I thought they were all based on the date it was published.
Thanks a lot for listening, it seems like a lot of limitations and annoyancies have been fixed. Also thanks for the great gesture of making it a free upgrade. And thanks for this iteration before the big, new and best ever CD 3.0
