Build5 of Version 0.99.9 is ready for download
posted on Thursday, August 30, 2007

Based on user reports and after much more testing in our testbed, we decided to go with Build5. This new release is all about removing reported bugs and revising previous fixes for better performance.

As in the case of previous releases, the big part of this release is again download and synch related lethal bugs. These bugs are so resilient that we have to be a very lucky man to encounter. Even after that, it's very tedious and time consuming job to pinpoint them. Hence we mostly relied on dedicated users who tested Ziepod for us. We'd like to thank everybody who helped us at testing.

Based on the latest feedbacks we got from Ziepoders who tested the prototype of this release shows that we have an improvement regarding crashes caused by deletion of downloaded episodes, cancellation of multiple episode downloads and synching activities. However, we should note that most of the people may not even have experienced these yet, some occasionally, and in very rare cases it may be bothersome.

Other than these improvements, there is one bug, or misbehaviour, that made Ziepod overwrite ID3 tags of all downloaded episodes even though there is no auto-overwrite rule in place, which eventually cause a slight delay at moving downloaded file from 'Incomplete Downloads' folder into its designated download folder. Yet another important bug is related to the length of downloaded file names. If the lenght is more than the system PATHMAX value, Ziepod failed to move downloaded file into its designated download folder.

There are couple of more interesting bugs we found but at the end we believe this is the final release before that holy 'Version One' release. And the time might be the next week. We have been testing this release for almost 3 weeks and our confidence level is at the top of the chart even though we know that there are tiny percentage of users out there that are still having frequent crashes. However we have to assume that it has to do with the local environment. To resolve those cases, we need feedback from those users, which is very slow moving process.

As we previously said, we are very excited about that 'Version One' as it will end one chapter in the development life of Ziepod and we will start a new one.

Hope you like this little release and get a smooth ride with it. Here is more info on this release:
