Oct 11, 2015 – Release version 3.1.1011. Adds capability to do a full database search for a single term.
Simply check the “Full DB” check-box and enter a search term in the NoteFrog search box, terminated by a “return/enter”. NoteFrog will search your entire NoteFrog database/library and return a list of all the selected items. The returned list may now be searched using the normal NoteFrog super-search capability.
Sept 28, 2015 – Release version 3.1.0928. Routine to determine “source” of clip improved in attempt to accommodate additional browsers.
Sept 17, 2015 – We’re releasing version 0917, which is the initial version 3 production release.
Update – June 3, 2015
Newest Release 3 in initial stages of beta testing. Issues identified in prior beta have been addressed. This beta supports encryption, (limited) HTML capture and a default clip collection stack. A general beta should be available soon.
Update – May 15, 2015
Additional testing of the version 3 release candidate has uncovered two potentially serious issues related to new features added in V3 which have led to a halt to current testing as V3 undergoes a non-trivial update.
Since the major V3 commitment – encryption, is working properly, we may consider a v3.0 release which adds encryption to NoteFrog and a subsequent 3.1 for the additional features (HTML capture and a “default” clip collection stack), which is where the issues reside.
The issues do not effect version 2 users as they are directly related to features added for V3.
Upgrading to V3
A database backup is recommended before utilizing database encryption. (A regular database backup is a good idea, regardless.)
Version 3 changes include:
Support for encrypted (aes128) libraries
Removal of reminders
Removal of clipboard collection support under Windows XP
Support for HTML clip collection
Improved visual indicator of active panel
Visual indicator for Clipboard activation (on/off) – and
Right-clicking on the clipboard activation indicator, toggles between text only and text+HTML clipboard content. The HTML content indicator is a small Internet Explorer icon
Support for a “default” clip collection stack. New clips are captured into the default instead of the “active” stack.
Removal of support for an image skin. Use any color you like, as long as it’s not a picture
As previously mentioned, the major change in NoteFrog version 3 is the ability to encrypt your notes library using AES128 encryption. AES128 is truly industrial strength encryption* and virtually unbreakable. Just be sure not to lose your encryption key since there is no way to recover a lost key.
*”As for now, there are no known practical attacks that would allow anyone to read correctly implemented AES encrypted data.”
Also note that HTML collection is from HTML clipboard content (if available). This is not intended to provide a web-site copy function, since the clipboard content omits much of the site content data.
Update – May 07, 2015
This version corrects a few display anomalies present in earlier version 3 candidates:
1. The initial “active tab” indicator was refreshed on each change in selection and led to a bit of unnecessary flickering. This version only refreshes the active tab indicator when necessary.
2. When HTML or images were captured to a “default” stack that was not the “active/displayed” stack, the contents of the image/html were being displayed in the active item panel.
