Bookcase 0.6.6 Released

I pushed out version 0.6.6. I did get the bug fixed in Bookcase which messed up the visible columns when using custom field titles or translations. It’s a bit of an ugly hack in my code, but 0.7 is going to be cleaner anyways, and I wanted folks to have a working version right now. That bug, along with the fix for the crash in the “Edit Fields” dialog, are gone now. Plus, Bookcase now has a French translation thanks to RMB.

The ease of KDE

KDE makes development so easy. I added menu items for configuring the toolbars and the key bindings to Bookcase with the addition of about 10 lines of code. It’s amazing.

With KStdAction::configureToolbars() and KEditToolbar, I automatically get a mechanism for moving icons around and saving their positions, without having to do anything else.

With KStdAction::keyBindings() and KKeyDialog, I automatically get a mechanism for adding shortcut keys to any action in my menus.

Very cool. As you can tell, Bookcase 0.7 will have some nice improvements. The export wizard is coming along nicely at the moment.
