We regularly get the question if it is possible to make a filter that excludes owned caches. At first sight this might seem impossible, but it is possible.
In the Filter dialog you can add so called compound filters. You can nest other filters in such a compound filter row.
- Hold the option key (also called alt key) while clicking on a + sign to add such a compound filter.
- Choose the ‘None of the following’ filter from the list
- Nest the filter that you want to invert inside, in this example ‘Owner begins with yourName’
Et voila, you filtered the caches not owned by you. Of course you can use this construction for other filters you want to invert. There are also compound filters for Any or All of the following.
Today we release iCaching 5.1.2 in the Mac App store.
Especially on Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) there were several flaws that are fixed in this version. Apart from the fixes we also added some nice improvements.
– Multiple logs for the same possible in Log Window
– Can load field notes from Looking4Cache
– Last open Geocache is persisted between application runs
– Hint button hidden when no hint available
– Fixed several issues in Mavericks (window layout, enabling menu items)
– Loading user logs only on application start, not every 5 minutes
– Saving GCVote password did not work
– All waypoints had the same icon in the Waypoints tab
– Several other little annoyances and small performance improvements
While waiting for the approval of iCaching 5.0.5 with bug fixes for the export bug and crash on sorting on coordinate, we fixed a lot of other issues. Because it will take a little while before those fixes can be in the App Store because of the (way too long) approval period Apple takes, I make this update available again for direct download from here:
This version fixes the following bugs (compared to 5.0.5):
- The pocket query dialog was broken on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks
- Updating Favourite points didn’t work
- The Favorites folder wasn’t updated
- The sort order in the cache list could get lost
- Loading Photos could crash in Mavericks
- Only new logs are imported on application start, instead of all logs of the last month
- The split view in the log and waypoints tab was wrong on application start while these tabs were open
- Fixed export to CSV
- The table header on the logs tab looked weird in Mavericks
This morning we could finally release version 5.0! The update is available in the app store.
Explore the new features like the location picker to insert coordinates, the photos tab and the improved performance.
There are some reports coming in about databases that are not correctly converted to version 5.0. We’re researching the issue.
Fortunately there is a backup of your original database. It is located in the same folder as the database and its name ends on .iCaching_DataModel 5.0. The database is located on a somewhat hidden location. Instructions to reach that location: http://www.icaching.eu/support/#toggle-id-4
If the conversion fails on your machine, I’d really like to have a copy of the backup to find out what went wrong. Please mail it using weTransfer.com to info at icaching dot eu
Excuse for the inconvenience!
Two weeks ago we could send out the first public beta of iCaching 5.0 and last week the second beta. Eventually, version 5.0 brought much more code changed than initially intended, so it took much more time than expected to finish it.
But with this version we have a good foundation for the future. Apart from some (big) new features (as mentioned in previous blog posts) the overall performance and under-the-hood logic of iCaching is vastly improved. Thanks to these changes it will be easier to add new functionality in the near future.
For now, we need some time ironing out the last bugs, finishing translations and help files. But we’re finally heading towards this long awaited release. A little patience please….
Just pressed the submit button for version 4.97.7. A small update which fixes some little bugs reported by customers.
Also added some small improvements. The most important one: in addition to the existing cmd-backspace keystroke (like in Finder), you can delete a cache from the list with just delete or backspace alone.
So when Apple has reviewed this version, it will appear in the App Store.
And in the meantime we continue work on version 5.0 which is nearing completion.
On March 16, Groundspeak has changed some API limits without notice to developers. Unfortunately this breaks some functionality in iCaching. Loading your last logs, or logs for caches now returns an error message instead of logs.
We’ll fix this ASAP.
