Gourmet 0.8.5.12 and 0.8.6.4 released

Gourmet Recipe Manager announces parallel stable and unstable releases today. The 0.8.5.12 gets the quick-ingredient-adder interface added to unstable in 0.8.6.3 and both releases get a vastly improved choose-encoding dialog for text imports. If you're new to Gourmet, I recommend trying out the 0.8.6.4 release -- it will soon become the default release, and the main roadblock to my calling it "stable" is ironing out the code that upgrades the database from one release to another (which obviously doesn't matter to you if you're installing for the first time!).

Gourmet 0.8.6.3 (unstable) released -- test away!

Gourmet's latest development release is here! Gourmet's 0.8.6 tree should handle large recipe collections more gracefully than past versions have. 0.8.6.3 reimplements elements of the user interface to get rid of annoying GTK error messages and prevent some of the segfaults that were happening with 0.8.6.2. 0.8.6.3 also includes a newer, easier ingredient editing interface. Hopefully this is one of the last of the 0.8.6 releases to be marked "unstable" -- interested users, please test this release so we can get enough bugs out to call this "stable" and retire 0.8.5.x. If you're updating from 0.8.5.x, it's not a bad idea to export a backup collection of your recipes before upgrading just in case the database-converter script breaks (though please do report any converter breakages as bugs!).

Gourmet 0.8.6.2 (unstable) Released!

Gourmet 0.8.6.0 Unstable has been released

Gourmet's 0.8.6.0 has been released as a new unstable branch of development. Hopefully with rapid testing, this branch will stabilize quickly. 0.8.6.0 brings improvements to the database (more will be coming in 0.8.6.1!) and improved sorting by rating, preparation and cooking time. Ratings are also given with stars now rather than with simple text, allowing for quicker, simpler sorting.

Gourmet 0.8.5.7 released!

Gourmet 0.8.5.7 has been released. The last two versions (0.8.5.6 & 0.8.5.7 in quick succession) have brought a new windows installer, improved mealmaster import, and a nice webpage import plugin system. I encourage interested developers to write an import plugin to scrape their favorite website! You can now drop plugins into your local ~/.gourmet/ directory for easy testing. Of potential interest to other pygtk developers is a new mnemonic manager in this system, which should make mnemonics more usable in all languages, since mnemonic conflicts are now avoided programatically.
