Release Notes: This release featured a completely revised sniping core, allowing potentially much greater precision. Adult login now works. eBay's new 'No Thumbnail' thumbnail is now recognized. The larger 'in description' thumbnail is used if it is available. Old save files are now preserved, and you can now send completed items to the Completed pane. An advanced configuration pane was added. User-set shipping prices will now show up in bold, and free shipping listings are recognized appropriately. Two new configurable columns were added: bidcount (# of bids), and price (current price).

Release Notes: eBay's sudden change to require SSL login broke sniping and bidding badly, requiring an emergency fix. The My eBay search wasn't loading watched/bidding items properly, which has been fixed. A lot of UI issues were cleaned up, and the UI made much more friendly. Behind the scenes a lot of the memory usage was trimmed heavily.

Release Notes: eBay made some changes that broke bidding and sniping on auctions. This version primarily responds to that. Most importantly, this fixes bidding and sniping to work with recent eBay changes. Browser launching under Mac OS X (Panther) now works with the latest Java versions. Some fixes were made for non-alphanumeric passwords, auction+BIN items, and Dutch items. A few UI improvements were made, and OS X support was enhanced.

  •  16 Mar 2003 08:16

Release Notes: Due to a recent eBay change, synchronizing with 'My eBay' was broken, and is now fixed in this version. Several other more minor bugs were fixed, and the UI was improved in many ways. eBay Motors items now show their title as well as the make:model of the vehicle. There is now a simple option to sum prices for items, as well as a very nice option to 'View in Browser' multiple auctions, and step through them using the internal Web server. The internal Web server has been improved substantially. Support for the New Taiwanese Dollar was added, and other currency support was improved. eBay Spain is now supported.

Release Notes: eBay changed the format of their view item page, and completely broke JBidwatcher's ability to load items. This version fixes that, and is therefore a mandatory upgrade if you want it to work. Other changes include fixing international issues (browsing to international sites is preserved between sessions), searches are properly saved between sessions, and better support for the latest browser versions when copying auction ids.
