JConvert 1.0.8 Release (Unit Conversion - platfm Ind.)

This latest release of JConvert adds support for fractional conversion that the users can see. JConvert already stores some of its conversions as fractions, but after the conversion from one unit to another the result is always displayed as a decimal. Not anymore. The decimal representation is still displayed as well as the fractional representation (if available). This release also fixes some minor gui issues.

JConvert 1.0.7 Release (Unit Conversion - platfm Ind.)

Try the latest release of the most comprehensive unit conversion software out there. This release is for a critical bug. In some cases jconvert would not run anymore due to a parsing error on an external website to get up-to-date currency conversions. This error has now been fixed as well as a fix for keeping jconvert from launching when this type of error occurs.

File Released

I have released an "alpha" file, but this is more like a beta - i am just cautious. I have fully checked about 90% of the conversions. Currently I am working on getting the jar to open faster and to incorporate more fractions into the formulas for accuracy - however that means a lot of boring work that has to be retested. Please try it out.

Project Status

Currently I am getting ready for release. I will upload the jar soon, followed by the code. It will be in beta at that point. Just a couple more days
