Nimi Places 20120808 released

With 2G ​in works, we release new­est version of 1G Nimi Places — after over 4 months since last release. Follow­ing direc­tion start­ed with­in pre­vious version, develop­ment focused even more ​on fixing ​and polishing existing featur­es.

Fixes start from minor GUI modifica­tions (like keyboard actions support ​for dialogboxes) to archiv­es process­ing. As ​for updat­es ​and optim­izations — those were applied to bottom core featur­es (IO frontend, repaint opera­tions etc.) as well as more visible aspects like dialogboxes.

However, aga­in few featur­es had to be remov­ed — as not to be add­ed ​in 2G ​and increas­ing project comple­xity beyond requir­ed — those include: files & fold­ers collector, con­tainer layer selec­tion ​and hide desktop tweak. As we und­erstand that not every user might be pleased with removal of those featur­es — we highly encourage Those to con­tact us.
