Hi all,

TreeProjects 2.5 now supports database password protection. Protected databases are encrypted, and although the encryption is strong, it is fast and completely transparent to the user.

Also, since version 2.4, web capturing has been improved, drag-n-drop support was extended, and support for Outlook email message format was added, along with other improvements and bug fixes.

Thanks!

Thank you Yaroslav, TreeProjects is indeed progressing nicely!

I have a question re file items, which also relates to the wider safety issue: if I choose to edit such an item in-place, I assume that a temporary file will be created for editing with the external application, and this will be re-saved when I am finished. Will TreeProjects delete the temporary file afterwards, or will a cleanup—e.g. with CCleaner- be needed?

Hello Alexander,

TreeProjects will delete the temporary files automatically when it exits. There are some corner cases where temporary files may not be deleted, like loss of power or exiting TreeProjects before exiting the external program. That’s why in the future I plan to:

(1) make the temporary file folder separate and configurable by the user (with different defaults in portable and installed modes);
(2) keep track of temporary files between sessions to enable reliable clean-up and recovery, like Office products do.

Yaroslav

Since Treeprojects is quite similar to Kinook’s Ultra Recall - and their development has stopped - would you be able to develop an import process for .URD databases?

Thanks,

Hello Ian,

I definitely want to be able to import other programs’ files. Most probably, this will be achieved through an intermediate step like exporting to OPML or disk folder first (do you think it would be too cumbersome?). Actually, even now TreeProjects seems to do a decent job importing data of other outliners exported to a disk folder, as it preserves the tree structure and infers item types from file types. This is not yet ready for real use though.
