Whats going on?
It's been slow with updates for version 2 the lates year or so. This is partly because i've been working more in my dayjob, and have had less time for File Juggler, and partly because I've been working on some bigger changes that I haven't published and will probably be a version 3.
The keywords for this next update is consistency and communication. I don't plan to really add any new features, but instead to improve on the core functionality. This means:
- Better status, to make it clearer what File Juggler is doing right now.
- Better logging, so that it's easier to trouble-shot if something goes unexpected.
- Ordered execution of rules. At the moment rules run seperately without considering each other, but in this next version rules will run in order, and you can be certain that rule 1 has executed successfully before rule 2 is executed. This makes it better suited for creating sets of rules that acomplish complicated workflows together.
I think this update will make File Juggler easier to work with, easier to understand and better suited for all kinds of professional use.
If work keeps progressing at the steady pace it is right now, I'll be able to release a beta in the fall.
