Notecase Pro v4.3.1 desktop edition has just been released.
Downloads are now available at http://www.notecasepro.com/download.php

Major changes in this release:
- new builds for Debian 9, Mageia 6
- add support for Gstreamer v1.x
- add: port code to support building with OpenSSL 1.1
- add: proxy support for sync operation, note that not all proxy servers support SSL (used by sync)
- add: show “Settings” button in the error message box when you try to synchronize document, but you did not define sync server settings or connection failed
- add: add right-click menu actions “Sync All from Local to Remote” and “Sync All from Remote to Local” to sync summary dialog to manually override change directions
- add: Lua method Nc_App_List_Col_GetByIdx was modified to return the column width info as well
- add: new Lua method Nc_App_EventScripts_FindByPath to find script associated by some event, knowing the script’s path/entry
- add: new Lua method Nc_Env_IsModKeyPressed to test if any particular modifier key is pressed (Shift, Ctrl, Alt)
- add: faster Word Count operation, make the progress linear instead of indeterminate
- add: importing huge RTF with many big pictures is now 6x faster when importing into .ncdb/.ncde document and using drastically less memory to do it
- add: import now imports directly into target document (before it imported everything into memory and if success merged later into target), this uses much less memory when importing in .ncdb/.ncde; also if the document being imported is corrupted in the middle, you’ll be able to import the 1st part at least (with old algorithm it was “all or nothing”)
- add: new Lua method to sync any particular (single) document: Nc_Sync_SyncDocument
- fix: sync server can return “400 bad request” error when syncing document where note moved to a new parent and old parent got deleted
- fix: moving note to the right causes other expanded nodes to collapse
- fix: undo issue when deleting character in the note
- fix: correctly detect that the document file is read-only using ACL related APIs on Windows.
- fix: possible hyperlink move after text delete undo action
- fix: NcSyncServer may not sync .ncdb document correctly without the license key installed, fixed by making the server exit if license is missing
- fix: typing speed should be faster, Lua automated typing test shows speed increased from 1314 to 3829 letters/second
  (note though that speedup of synthetic test may not map to equal speedup in real situation)
- fix: improve read-only detection when loading document file on Windows (read-only file could trigger invalid “File is loaded in another instance of the program” message)
- fix: 100% CPU usage when waiting for password on Linux
- fix: possible crash when closing the last document tab
- fix: hard-to-reproduce case when pasting RTF to note caused the next character after the pasted content to become bold
- fix: possbile format/hyperlink move when merging note content changes using “Merge document” operation; formatting/link/text/picture changes were merged into single change
- fix: when merging two documents, notes that did not exist in our document were added to the end of document, instead of trying to add it under the same parent note
- fix: “Title” column width in Tree Pane might shrink when repeatedly closing and loading documents
- fix: do not scroll to bottom of the text by default for each new selected note
- fix: prevent reported sync server crash on FreeBSD (ignore SIGPIPE signal)
- fix: event after_note_inserted was not fired if a clone of a note is created
- help file updates (work by Paul Merrell and Daniel Hertrich)
- Croatian translation updated
- Chinese Traditional translation updated (work by Richard Sun)
- Finnish translation updated (work by Ville Pilviö)
- French translation updated (work by Jeff Malka)
- Chinese translation updated (work by Stephen Zhu)
- Dutch translation updated (work by William Ouwehand)
- German translation updated (work by Marcus Hennig)

Note that several builds for “End of life” distros were removed (Ubuntu 16.10, Ubuntu 12.04, Fedora 24, OpenSUSE 13.1, Mandriva).

Is there an iOS version on the horizon?  I’ve always hesitated from purchasing NoteCase because it is not “cross-platform” in the Apple universe.

OS X is supported. I asked the developer about future plans for iOS support. There are no plans for iOS version, but if you find some iOS outliner you like with an open file format, he would be willing to add import/export support for that format.

For the desktop version, the following import formats are supported:

.baskets Basket outliner format
.csv BestJotter export format
.enex Evernote Export format
.epub electronic book format
.gjots2 Gjots2 format
.hjt Treepad format
.hnc NoteCenter format
.html Hypertext Markup Language format
.knb Keepnote document format
.kno KnowIt format
.knt Keynote format
.leo Leo Outliner format
.mm Freemind format
.mm MM/LX Mindmap/Outline format
.mmap MindManager format
.nbk Keepnote document
.ncd NoteCase HTML-based format (native)
.ncdb NoteCase database format (native)
.ncde NoteCase encrypted database format (native)
.nce NoteCase encrypted format (native)
.ncz NoteCase compressed format (native)
.ndb HP Palmtop Note Database
.nkp Notekeeper format
.note Tomboy notes
.opml OPML format *
.otl Natara Bansai format
.outlook Outlook import settings
.palm Palm Memo tab-delimited export
.phat PhatNotes (http://www.phatware.com/phatnotes) CSV export file
.rtf Rich Text Format
.tab Tab-delimited format
.toodledo Toodledo XML export (http://www.toodledo.com)
.tux Tuxcards format
.txt Plain text format
.vlt Vault format
.vltxml Vault XML export format
.xmind xMind document
.xml StickyNotes format
.htmao ActionOutline HTML export

The following export formats are supported:

* .hnc NoteCenter format (read/write support)
*.html HTML format (with or without embedded CSS)
* .md .md Markdown format (with options for variants)
* .ncd NoteCase flat format (read/write support) (native)
* .nce NoteCase flat encrypted format (read/write support) (native)
* .ncdb NoteCase database format (read/write support) (native)
* .ncde NoteCase encrypted database format (read/write support) (native)
* .ncz NoteCase flat compressed format (read/write support) (native)
* .opml Outline Processor Markup Language (can also be imported)
* .rtf Rich Text Format (can also be imported)
* .tab Tab-delimited format
* .txt Plain text format (UTF-8 without byte order marking-encoded)
* .psicsv Psion 5 data format (CSV)
* .tex LaTeX format

I don’t use it so am not certain, but I believe the Android version so far supports only .ncdb and .ncde formats, with plans to add read support for the other NoteCase Pro native file formats. (The Android version is much newer and has its own source code base.) 

Best regards,
