We have released a new development versions of the following product and it is now available for download:

HanDBase for Symbian S60

The only change to this Development version from the current Release version is the added support for the combination of a Memory Card and the Mass Media drive on a device, particularly on the Nokia N97. However this change will also now support multiple Memory Cards as well, if you device has support for that. The current Release build sees the Mass Media drive as drive E: and won't see any databases stored on a Memory Card on an N97 device. This release corrects that.

In relation to the above change the program also now supports moving databases to any of the supported drives. The Database list now also has indicators for which drive a database resides on. The list of databases is also now fully alphabetical. Previously the list was first sorted by drive and then was alphabetical within that drive's section.

At present, we do not have access to an N97 that has a Memory Card in it so we would appreciate feedback from any users with an N97 that use a Memory Card to ensure that the new functionality is working properly.

Answers to common questions:
What is a development version?

A development version is like a public beta version. When we make significant changes to a program that is not part of a major update (eg, 4.0, 5.0), we like to make sure that no new problems surfaced in the fixes we made. While we did test this application in house and with testers, it's best to keep the current release version as the current release, and only those who are needing some of the above changes can take the initiative to download the development version. Should you run into any issues, you can always come back to the Registered User's page and download the current release version to get back to where you were before. As with any update, I'd suggest backing up all your files before performing the update.

How do I get the development version?

Log into the Registered users page:
http://www.ddhsoftware.com/download
Username: Your email address
Password: what password you were given at purchase (not your license key). If you don't have this, click the lost password option on the above page and we'll email it to you.

Next to each product you'll see the Download button- that is NOT the one you want as it's the latest release version. Instead, select the option under the words: Latest Development Version: 4.1.5 build D1 to download. That will get you the installer for the development version!

Why was the bug xxx I reported not fixed in this version?

This version addresses most all bugs we were able to verify and duplicate in house. If we can't duplicate the bug we can't fix it. If your submission was not verified, chances are we emailed you back to say we needed more help duplicating the issue on our end. If we didn't, there is a chance we missed it or it fell through the crack. If so, very sorry about that. Feel free to comment in this topic if this is the case, and I can comment on that particular issue or follow up with you.

Is this going to be the release version?

If we find no issues, or can fix any small remaining bugs or issues without any major changes, we will likely just release the slightly fixed version in a few weeks. If there are any significant issues, we'll likely release another development version before the release version.

Hope this version works well for you!

I have tried the Development version on my N97 with databases on the phone memory (C:), the mass storage (E:) and an 8GB SDHC memory card (F:), and can confirm that it works as expected. It also works with databases on only one or two of the three "drives".

However, the software is reporting itself as 4.1.3 on the about page, not the 4.1.5 mentioned here, so I'm not sure the version on the download page is actually the latest.
