Release Notes: Keyboard navigation has been improved by adding shortcuts, mnemonics, and key strokes that can be used to cancel or commit most dialogs. The Windows installer can install a Java Virtual Machine on non-Vista versions of Windows. Both common and scientific names of species can be displayed when ticking species, editing checklists, and in trip reports. Some bugs have been fixed on all platforms.
Release Notes: This version installs as a native application on Mac OS X. A few bugs have been fixed on all platforms.
Release Notes: Sightings can be imported from files of comma-separated values, Excel spreadsheets, .dbf files, tables in Web pages, and from relational databases. Bugs have been fixed in the tree of trips and in the tree of checklists.
Release Notes: The installer should no longer fail on MS Windows systems. Text boxes should no longer be impossibly small on MS Windows systems on which Java JVM 1.4.2 is used. This release should no longer fail to launch a Web browser on Linux KDE 2.0 systems on which the BROWSER environment variable is set to run kfmclient.
Release Notes: The master checklist builder has been converted to Java Swing from an AWT interface. New data sources may be used for the master checklist: Excel spreadsheets, HTML tables in Web pages, and any relational database for which the user can provide Java drivers and an SQL query. A new hierarchy is available for the tree of trips: year/region/trip.
Release Notes: In this version, the user interface has been converted to Java Swing from a hybrid AWT/Swing interface, and shortcuts have been improved on Linux and MS Windows.
Release Notes: Tables of regions and observers are now available for editing, and tables that are used to select species show the numbers of species that have been selected in collapsed families. On Linux, support for Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, Dillo, and Konqueror was added.
Release Notes: It is now possible to import regional checklists from CSV files, Excel spreadsheets, tables in HTML pages, dBase .dbf files, and from relational databases. Tables of species synonyms and genus synonyms can now be built to identify unknown imports. Preferred checklists can be assigned to trips and regions for use when ticking species. Tables of species can now be searched by species name. Instructions were provided for accessing the underlying database remotely as well as from Perl scripts.
Release Notes: In this version of J-Bird, it is possible to tick observed species from checklists, ticks can be recorded as presence or as counts, and trips can be browsed from a hierarchical tree of trips.
