software

Since I’m not writing anything of substance at the current moment, here are some recent software releases to be aware of.

  • Pidgin (formerly Gaim) finally saw an official 2.0.0 release, with too many features to list.
  • Paint.NET released its latest incremental change to 3.07, with a few fixes an an enhanced line/curve tool.
  • Notepad++, a Scintilla-based tabular editor for Windows, released 4.1, updating the scintilla component and quashing some bugs.
  • Sumatra PDF, a minimal PDF viewer for Windows, released 0.6, now with support for password-protected files (which I didn’t realize it lacked before)
  • IrfanView, a popular freeware picture viewer for Windows, incremented to 4.00, with various bug fixes, a few new minor features, and better Vista support.

    So… they had to change the name from Gaim to Pidgin, but it’s okay to always refer to it as Pidgin (formerly known as Gaim)? I don’t think I’ve seen it anywhere listed as just “Pidgin.”

    If I knew how such things worked, I could be making much more money as a lawyer. Suffice it to say, we’ll be seeing a lot of “formerly known as” in the near future.

    Hmm… seems like quite a big fuss for no reason. Stupid AOL. :\
