A new goText++ Desk! release is finally here, with one of the most frequently requested feature: address book import/export in vCard format!

Update 11 February: release version 0.9.9 which fixes some 0.9.8 bugs and has some more improvements!

There are many other important changes, related to performance, stability and usability improvements.
You can find the detailed list of changes in the official goText++ Desk! homepage, along with download links.

Because of some dependency the miminimum OS requirements has been changed for some packages:
  • If you use the Ubuntu .DEB version the min Qt version required now is 4.7.0 and so you need Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat or Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx (the latter is supported by adding a PPA backports repository:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
    sudo apt-get update
  • If you use MacOSX you need at least version 10.6 (Snow Leopard) with a 64bit Intel processor

You should really upgrade to this new version, because the next releases will need its data format to work.

Update 09 February: the Ubuntu .DEB packages (both i386 and amd64) released 3 days ago installed files in the wrong path, and the menu launcher wasn't working. Fixed debs have been uploaded right now, so please download and install them again.

We are experiencing some problems with our mailing server, so forum notifications and new user subscription are not working. Bluesman should be working on it, we hope to get everything back working soon!

We had a similar question in a Italian forum thread, and even a bit more detail ... I'm not going to rewrite my reply in English here because it is a bit long, but you may have a look at a Google Translated version which seems to be readable to have a better idea on what's going on with the mobile version.

Anyone having difficulties when trying to add/edit a Service in version 0.9.8 should update to the just released version 0.9.9 which fixes the issue!

Il problema rimangono i servizi, molti non funzionano più come "Vodafone SMS" e "Alice ADSL".
La nuova versione sembra funzionare bene.  ;)

Grazie per la segnalazione di Vodafone SMS, l'ho appena corretto, era abbastanza facile da sistemare..non l'avevo notato dato che non lo uso più da tempo.
Per Alice ADSL purtroppo non posso far nulla perché non ho una connessione Telecom Italia con cui testarlo.
Il passaggio ai Servizi XML in teoria doveva servire per coinvolgere ed incoraggiare anche voi utenti alla correzione e creazione di servizi, dato che non richiedono conoscenze di programmazione e sono molto leggibili, ma purtroppo non c'è stato nessun contributo a riguardo :(
