This program is designed to read the XML backup files produced by the Android app SMS Backup & Restore by Ritesh.
SMS Backup and Restore Android App: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore
-Country code selection. You may have a contact stored one way, but when the SMS comes in, it may have the full international prefix and country code, even if it is from that same country you are in. Entering the country code of your number helps solve some of this problem.
-Separate message threads for each contact.
-"Sent" and "Received" and date/time information for each message.
-Export all conversations as a single text file divided by contact (easy archiving for later reading/printing).
-International support (UTF-8)
-Country code drop down instead of entering manually.
-Read other backups. (Call Log, APN, etc).
v0.7 - 2013-05-10
-Completely recoded and tested the project:
-Tested with Java 6 and 7, on Windows 7, Windows 8, Ubuntu, and OS X 10.8.
-Eclipse instead of NetBeans
-Refactored to better fit the Java programming model: BackupReader is now a separate class, enabling GUI/CLI creation as a separate entity.
-Better commenting (still needs more).
-Feedback for load success/failure
-Added error codes to deal with problems reading files.
-Feedback for export success/failure.
-Added better international support (Unicode font and UTF-8 parsing).
v0.6 - 2012-05-20
-Added the ability to change the received message time offset.
This will make it so you can effectively change the timezone. Default is 0 (zero), if it already works, don't change it!
v0.5.1 - 2011-12-02
-Forgot to remove some debugging statements
-Extra address checking
v0.5 - 2011-12-02
-Added help in 4 languages
-Fixed an issue with draft messages. The address is "null" for drafts.
-Fixed an issue with short codes. If the address is less than 6, assume its a short code.
-Tested with the latest backups from SMS Backup & Restore (as of 2011-12-02) and old backups (2011-07-20).
v0.3.5 - 2011-10-26
-Added the ability to export selected contact messages.
-Added popups to warn if no messages were loaded rather than simply doing nothing.
v0.3 - 2011-10-26
-Added the ability to export all messages as a file
v0.2.1 - 2011-09-05
-Fixed a bug or two
v0.2 - 2011-08-03
-Added the ability to specify country code. This should help with multiple versions of the same contact.
-Bug fix, code cleanup
v0.1.5 - 2011-07-31
-Fix for initial release (v0.1 had some issues).
A quick thanks to Ritesh for supporting this, for linking to it from his site, and for designing and maintaining the Android app that makes SMS backups quick and easy.<<<
