VueMinder Lite Version History

VueMinder Lite continues to be improved. Read below for details about the latest updates, or check out our Blog for an overview.

Version 2016.09 (August 12, 2016)

  • Corrected various problems related to recurring events sometimes duplicating and reminders not dismissing or snoozing.
  • Corrected formatting of event descriptions when imported from an ICS file that was previous exported from VueMinder. Previously, the descriptions would import only as plain text.
  • Corrected the list of exported events shown after exporting a calendar to an ICS file. Recurring event variations were listed twice.
  • Updated the Catalan and Portuguese translations.
  • Other minor corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.08 (July 1, 2016)

  • Improved program performance, especially when recurring events have been defined.
  • Improved performance when importing ICS files that contain recurring events.
  • Improved the Details Pane and tooltips to show the date and time when an item was created or last modified.
  • Improved the text editor to select double-clicked words.
  • Improved contact photos to be cached locally, in case the images were added from a network location. The images will load faster and will also be shown while offline.
  • Improved the Event Editor to automatically enable a reminder when its row is selected from the list of available reminder types.
  • Improved the reliability of saving program data and settings. In some cases, the settings file could become corrupted, which could then lead to data not loading properly if stored in a non-default location.
  • Corrected changing the font name, size, and color in the text editor. In some cases, several characters could be deleted near the caret position when the font was modified.
  • Corrected the text editor to process the Tab key. Previously, pressing the Tab key would result in input focus moving from the text editor to a different input field.
  • Corrected syncing with Google Calendar. In some cases, modified occurrences of a recurring series wouldn't sync properly or would appear as duplicates.
  • Corrected the behavior of the "Use a different account" button on the "Add Google Calendar" window.
  • Corrected cases where events imported from an ICS file could be off by an hour, depending on the time zone.
  • Corrected copying and pasting completed events. The pasted events would also be marked as completed.
  • Corrected the popup reminder window to close when its last reminder is dismissed or snoozed. The window would sometimes continue to be displayed with no reminders shown.
  • Corrected the drop-down date picker to always show the currently selected month in the middle, with the previous month above and next month below.
  • Corrected the mini desktop calendar to properly display dates that contain events having black text on a transparent background. The date numbers wouldn't appear in that case.
  • Corrected the text in the warning message when using a non-English language and a recurring event is defined which has a start date inconsistent with the recurrence pattern. The warning message wasn't fully translated.
  • Corrected the Korean translation.
  • Translated to Portuguese (Portugal).
  • Many other minor corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.07 (May 14, 2016)

  • Corrected the display of times in the Day and Week views when formatted using a 24-hour clock. Minutes will no longer be truncated for times that are at the top of the hour (Example: 14:00-15:00 will be displayed instead of 14-15).
  • Other minor corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.06 (May 8, 2016)

  • Corrected syncing with Google Calendar on some computers. An error would appear in the status bar stating "The added or subtracted value results in an un-representable DateTime."
  • Corrected the display of durations that are in increments of a quarter hour to show the duration value in hours instead of total minutes (example: 3.25 hours instead of 195 minutes).
  • Corrected the Urdu translation.
  • Other minor corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.05 (April 6, 2016)

  • Added the ability to specify an interval for yearly recurring events. For example, a recurring event can now be defined to occur every 4 years.
  • Improved performance, especially when adding calendars, deleting recurring events, and performing other operations that affect a lot of data.
  • Improved the Status Bar to show an indication when syncing with Google Calendar has failed, along with an explanation of what is causing the problem.
  • Improved the Help menu to include an option for viewing these release notes.
  • Corrected the Google authorization webpage to only appear one time, instead of opening each time VueMinder attempts to sync with Google. If authorization is denied, no further requests will be shown.

  • Corrected the Add Google Calendar window not show an error message if the calendar list is expanded by the user before the list has fully initialized.
  • Corrected pasting images into the description editor using Ctrl+V. In some cases, pressing Ctrl+V would have no effect.
  • Corrected the right-click menu in the Priority editor window to not allow the "none" priority to be deleted.
  • Corrected the Polish translation.
  • Translated into Japanese.
  • Other minor corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.04 (February 21, 2016)

  • Improved the Desktop Calendar to restore the Print and New item buttons that were previously in the upper-left corner.
  • Improved the date range drop-down list on the Print window to include a "Next month" option.
  • Corrected a problem with some calendar subscriptions not properly updating when synced.
  • Corrected intermittent cases where marking a single occurrence of a recurring event could result in all events of the series being marked as completed.
  • Corrected the drop-down Priority list to not require scrolling when text scaling is greater than 100% or when priority font sizes have set larger than 9pt.
  • Corrected the popup reminder window to sort the reminders based on start time.
  • Corrected the Week view (in Grid mode) to show a context menu when right-clicking.
  • Corrected the Latvian translation.
  • Other minor corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.03 (January 31, 2016)

  • Added an option to shade dates that are outside the printed month when using the Monthly layout style.
  • Improved the appearance of desktop alerts and updated the desktop alert menu to show larger (touch-friendly) icons that are visually consistent with other icons in VueMinder.
  • Improved the date range drop-down list on the Print window to include a "This week" option.
  • Improved the "Today" button shown in the Go menu and in the upper-right corner of the Day, Week, and Month views. The button's icon will show the current date.
  • Improved the Day and Week views to highlight the current date. A different color border will be displayed around the current date's timeslots. The date header will also be shown in a different color.
  • Improved the layout of the Desktop Calendar to reduce the number of buttons shown near the top of the window. This simplifies the layout and reduces visual noise/distraction.
  • Improved the Event Editor for events that occur in the past. Instead of showing a large orange warning banner, a simple icon and warning label will be shown below the Save button.
  • Improved the randomly selected default colors for new calendars. A much larger palette will be used, containing colors that are brighter and more modern.
  • Improved tooltips to be fully opaque for easier reading.
  • Corrected a memory leak which could result in error messages or degraded performance.
  • Corrected performance when subscribing to calendars. The subscriptions could slow VueMinder's startup speed and cause degraded performance while syncing.
  • Corrected syncing with external calendars. In some cases, duplicates would be generated in VueMinder. Note, this correction won't remove previously generated duplicates but should prevent new duplicates from being created.
  • Corrected saving events. In some cases, new events wouldn't appear until the calendar view was clicked, due to a refresh problem.
  • Corrected the Desktop Calendar to restore its previous position when VueMinder is restarted. In some cases, such as when using 3 monitors, the Desktop Calendar would incorrectly move to a different monitor.
  • Corrected the display of tooltips. In some cases, the tooltips could be clipped by the edge of the screen or have an arrow that was incorrectly positioned.
  • Corrected the "Show event descriptions in tooltips" option. Unchecking this option would have no effect and tooltips would still show the full descriptions.
  • Corrected the up/down arrows in the Details Pane when a date is selected.
  • Corrected the default color of selected dates in the Month View to be gray instead of light blue, since the default color for the current date is also a shade of blue and the similar colors could cause confusion.
  • Corrected an error message when attempting to open the Options window. The error was related to text-to-speech (TTS) voices and could occur on computers that have 3rd party TTS software installed which conflicts with VueMinder.
  • Translated into Latvian and Urdu.
  • Many other corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.02 (January 6, 2016)

  • Corrected intermittent error messages when syncing with Google Calendar.
  • Corrected the Location Editor to not allow the default (blank) location to be renamed something else.
  • Corrected the text editor toolbar to show the currently selected font color.
  • Corrected the text editor to include a border around the editable area. This helps differentiate the editable area from the toolbar.
  • Corrected the "Show Full Dates" option on the Desktop Calendar's Month View to show abbreviated month names, the same as the main window's Month View.
  • Updated the Hungarian translation.
  • Other minor corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.01 (January 1, 2016)

  • Improved the taskbar and notification area icons. The current date number is larger and easier to see in the updated icons.
  • Improved the main menu to support keyboard accelerator keys, such as Alt+F for accessing the File menu.
  • Corrected the F10 keyboard shortcut to activate the main menu. This is consistent with standard Windows application behavior.
  • Corrected the tooltip that is displayed when hovering the mouse over the VueMinder icon in the notification area. The tooltip would only appear on Windows 10.
  • Corrected the text editor to include a "Preview Mode" button (near the bottom of the editor), which enables clicking of hyperlinks without needing to hold the Ctrl key.
  • Other minor corrections and improvements.

Version 2016.00 (December 29, 2015)

  • Note: This version requires either Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 (installed by default on Windows 8.x and 10), or .NET Framework 4.0 with update KB2468871 (probably already installed if you use Windows Update).
  • Improved the user interface. The layout and button icons have been updated. Buttons, tabs, and icons are larger to provide a better user experience on touch-screen and high resolution displays.

  • Improved the coloring of dates in the Navigation Pane, Mini Desktop Calendar, and Year View to be based on the order of calendars in the calendar list.
  • Improved copying and pasting of multiple events to use the same relative date/time offsets for the pasted events, rather than all the pasted events going into the same date or timeslot even if they were copied from different dates or timeslots.

  • Corrected the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+X keyboard shortcuts to properly copy or cut events.
  • Corrected the Calendar Properties window to properly save the state of the "Server requires authentication" checkbox on the Sync tab.
  • Corrected the event title when adding an anniversary event from the Contact Editor if a spouse's name hasn't been entered yet. The anniversary event title was missing the contact's last name.

  • Corrected the HTML webpage output to use the first day of the week specified in the Calendar Options, rather than the regional default.

  • Improved most windows to close when the Escape key is pressed or to perform a default action when the Enter key is pressed.
  • Corrected a problem with Google Calendar authorization and syncing sometimes stopping after a few hours or days. In some cases, the authorization webpage would appear multiple times per day. This will no longer happen.

  • Corrected the up/down navigation buttons in the Event Editor to not show the previous event's description if the current event doesn't have a description.
  • Corrected a number of problems related to text scaling. Some input fields or buttons were being clipped on displays having 125% or larger text scaling.

  • Corrected the drop-down list of recently used media files in the popup reminder settings. Any files that are no longer present will not be listed in the drop-down.
  • Corrected the up/down arrows in time-of-day fields to adjust the time value in a direction that is consistent with the up/down arrow key behavior in date fields.
  • Corrected toolbar and keyboard shortcut customizations to be properly restored when VueMinder is restarted.
  • Minor corrections and improvements.

Version 10.1.5 (February 9, 2013)

  • Improved performance. Most users should see a very noticeable performance improvement.
  • Improved the start/end time fields so pressing the up or down keys on the keyboard will adjust the time.
  • Improved editing of start and end times. When the start time is changed, the end time will update based on the currently specified duration.
  • Corrected VueMinder to use the latest stable Google Calendar API, which might solve intermittent syncing problems some customers are having.
  • Corrected selection of a starting timeslot for the Daily or Weekly print layouts, if the ending timeslot was set to midnight. For example, there was no way to specify a timeslot range of 9am to midnight.
  • Corrected popup reminder sound playback. In some cases, sounds wouldn't play or would only play once instead of looping.
  • Corrected playback of sounds on the popup reminder window. In some cases, especially when looping a very short sound file, the sound would continue to play after the reminder was dismissed or snoozed.
  • Corrected editing recurrence events when the option to also edit all following events is selected and the start date is changed. The original series would sometimes not end before the start date of the new series.
  • Corrected the "None" priority to have its name shown in the Priority List. Previously, the name would appear as blank.
  • Corrected the Desktop Calendar to not allow its top edge to be moved off the screen, which makes it difficult to move later.

  • Corrected an error message that could sometimes appear in the Event Editor while typing a start or end time using the keyboard.

  • Corrected the Paste command to not be disabled when the Details Pane content is set to 'Today'.
  • Corrected creation of events when a range of dates is selected. After saving the event, its end date would be set one day earlier than what was selected.

  • Corrected the Month view to always show 'More activity' arrow indicators in dates where one or more events are either not shown because there isn't enough space, or only partially shown.

  • Minor corrections and improvements.

Version 10.1.3 (January 10, 2013)

  • Added the Traditional Chinese language translation. This will be the default if the language in the Windows Control Panel is set to Traditional Chinese. Otherwise, Traditional Chinese can be selected from the Language menu.
  • Improved the drop-down list for selecting start or end times. Selecting a time will be easier because the list will require less scrolling.
  • Improved calendar subscriptions to show a message when attempting to delete an event belonging to a subscribed (read-only) calendar. The message provides an option of disabling the subscription so events belonging to that calendar can be deleted.
  • Improved handling of recurring event reminders when several events in the same series have unprocessed reminders occurring in the past. Only the reminder for the most recent occurrence will be shown. Dismissing or snoozing the reminder will no longer result in another reminder for the next oldest occurrence appearing after 1 minute.
  • Corrected snoozing reminders when the option to combine popup reminders into a single window has been disabled and the reminder is snoozed past the event or task starting time.

  • Improved the Details Pane to indicate whether the selected event has been marked as completed.
  • Improved the Configuration Wizard to ask if the user wants a calendar to appear on their Windows desktop. Previously, a desktop calendar would always appear and would need to be closed if the user didn't want it.
  • Improved event tooltips to allow more content before scrollbars will appear.
  • Corrected copying and pasting of events. In some cases, nothing would happen when attempting to paste.
  • Corrected importing from ICS files that were generated by iCal. In some cases, an error message would appear.
  • Corrected the Details Pane to update when a date is clicked in the Day and Week views. Previously, this was only working in the Month view.
  • Corrected the Desktop Calendar to highlight today's date.
  • Corrected the task tray tooltip that is displayed after VueMinder is minimized, so clicking the tooltip will prevent it from appearing again (as indicated in the tooltip).
  • Corrected each menu command to end with "..." when using the command will result in a new window appearing within VueMinder.
  • Corrected printing to not show the "Click to add event" button, which would sometimes appear in the printout.

  • Minor improvements and corrections.

Version 10.1.0 (December 1, 2012)

  • Added the Italian language. This will be the default if the language in the Windows Control Panel is set to Italian. Otherwise, Italian can be selected from the Language menu.
  • Added an option to select the desired tooltip size (tiny, small, medium, or large). Some users may find the smaller tooltips to be less obtrusive.
  • Added a warning when a reminder is snoozed past an event's starting time. There is also an option to disable this warning.
  • Added a "Paste as Plain Text" button to the text editor's toolbar. The text will be pasted using the currently specified format, not the format of the original source.

  • Improved the Navigation Pane and Mini Desktop Calendar to show clickable tooltips when hovering over a date. Events can be opened from the tooltip by clicking links.

  • Corrected a problem with opening a recurring event from the Details Pane if the recurring event's calendar is filtered.
  • Corrected restoring the main window to normal size by clicking the "Restore Down" button in the upper-right corner. The window would immediately revert to the maximized size on some computers.

  • Minor improvements and corrections.

Version 10.0.1 (November 18, 2012)

  • Improved the View menu and main toolbar to include an option that toggles whether a tooltip should be shown when the mouse is hovered over an event.
  • Improved the timing of popup tooltips. The popups will take slightly longer to appear, decreasing the likelihood of an unintentional tooltip appearing. They will also disappear immediately when the mouse is moved away.
  • Corrected previously snoozed reminders to restore the last snooze time as the default when the reminder appears again, instead of always defaulting to 15 minutes.
  • Corrected a problem pasting text into the event title when using the Ctrl+V keyboard shortcut.
  • Corrected the Today summary in the Details Pane when a recurring event is clicked and multiple recurring events are scheduled. The first recurring event was always opened instead of the one that was clicked.

  • Corrected an error when printing if the specified page margins are smaller than the physical limits of the destination printer.

  • Corrected various problems importing ics files or subscribing.

  • Corrected the popup reminder and desktop alert settings to not show specific reminder dates/times when editing a recurring series. The times were for the first occurrence of the series, which could cause confusion.

  • Corrected the Month view of the main window to allow inline creation of events using the "Click to add" button. The button wasn't appearing.
