Steffs Todo App 1.3.1

Steffs Todo App version 1.3.1 is an important update:

  • fix oversized app logo at main view, which made the app totally useless since 1.3 on newer devices … sorry
  • fix crashes when adding / editing items if certain characters were entered

You should update as soon as possible if you’re using this app.

Virtual Viewer 1.0-9 and Virtual Viewer Power Addon released!

Hi folks,

Two days ago I released Virtual Viewer 1.0-9, with following changes:

  • together with the Virtual Viewer Power Addon you are now able to power on, power off, reset, suspend VMs and to shutdown or reboot the guest OS!!
  • Datacenter View: you now have a „Refresh View“ option in the menu which reloads the current view
  • DataCenter View: you now see the cpu usage and guest memory usage of a VM
  • fixes a bug which crashes the Alarms View
  • updated Sessions View to match the other Views, and also shows motd if set
  • removed some queries, this should speed up the „fetching data“ process for some views
  • if a VM is suspended, it shows now correctly as suspended now and has a different icon

Oh and if you missed 1.0-8, it added support for VMWare Server 2!

Steffs Todo App 1.3 and VirtualViewer 1.0-7

You may have already noticed it, I released updates of my free apps: Steffs Todo App and VirtualViewer.

Steffs Todo App, a note taking app, an important update which finally makes it able to backup and restore notes from sd card. It contains other significant improvements too which you can read in the changelog in Android Market or on the project page.

VirtualViewer, an app to retrieve informations from a vCenter or ESX/i received a minor update to view „hosts and clusters“ and „datastores“.

Virtual Viewer 1.0-6 released

Again, a minor bugfix release with some smaller features:

  • Fix wrong virtual machine name and power state when a vm is selected
  • Fix wrong parent object detection, this should fix some exit-to-login situations while in inventory view
  • Password is now saved on login if enabled in preferences (at login hit menue)
  • Attempt to fix out-of-memory and other crashes
  • Inventory view now shows more information about a VM: RAM, vCPUs, tools status and ip address
  • Don’t show Alarms view when on ESX/ESXi, this seems to be a vCenter feature only

I just uploaded v1.0-4 of Virtual Viewer to Android market, which brings at least one exciting improvement:

  • A new sessions view which allows you to see who’s connected to your host.
  • Fixed a bug which fixes some weird behaviour when connecting to a vCenter, and then connecting to a ESX box.
  • Some code clean-ups and other things I can’t remember.

As usual, for more information see the Virtual Viewer project page, and please consider donating to keep this project alive.
