This email is to announce Tomboy 0.15.6, the seventh development release
on the road to Tomboy 1.0, which will coincide with GNOME 2.28.
Users and distributors take note: In this release, notes and
configuration data have moved. Previously notes, user-installed
add-ins, temporary files, and various configuration data was all
stored in ~/.tomboy on Linux, %APPDATA%\tomboy on Windows, and
~/.config/tomboy on Mac. This has all changed now. Here is where
Tomboy data will live from now on:
Linux, etc (Free Desktop standards)
Configuration and add-ins: ~/.config/tomboy/
Mac OS X
Notes: ~/Library/Application Support/Tomboy/
Configuration and add-ins: ~/Library/Preferences/Tomboy/
Configuration and add-ins: %APPDATA%\Tomboy\config\
Distributors: The user is not notified of this migration, since the
vast majority of Tomboy users were unaware of the existence of
~/.tomboy in the first place. If for some reason you want your users
to know when this migration happens, there is some commented-out code
in NoteManager.cs that generates a note explaining the whole thing and
shows it to the user on their first run, when the migration occurs.
Otherwise, a simple text file will be created in the old note
directory for those users who pay attention to such things. There is
still time before our stable release to discuss this behavior.
Please report any issues you find in this migration process.
Tomboy is a simple personal note-taking application designed to be
unobtrusive and friendly, while supporting inter-note-links similar to
a WikiWikiWeb to help you organize your notes and ideas. It can run
either as a GNOME panel applet or a notification tray icon.
