The next beta version, 5.2.2, of the Pedia programs is out. This one is a major overhaul of the memory internals, making all the Pedias faster and lighter. It also addresses a number of issues with the upcoming Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, due out in the fall.
Some of the changes include the new system font of Helvetica Neue which is now used in the details view for Yosemite, table headers match the new Yosemite style and several freeze and bug fixes for Yosemite. One of the few changes that will appear for all users, regardless of OS X installed, is a thinner divider line between the views in the main window. Also included is the final version of the new Doghouse online library option.
A couple of known bugs with Yosemite are the gray background and incorrect highlight in the collection view and deleting text from the internal search does not update the results. These are Yosemite bugs that hopefully will get fixed in an upcoming beta version, but otherwise will work around them after the release of the Yosemite Golden master.
If you happen to be testing the beta version of Yosemite do give 5.2.2 a whirl and let us know about any other issues you experience. Especially usability issues such as freezes and crashes. If you’re not running Yosemite do test the betas all the same to make sure the modernization of the code for Yosemite did not break any functions all the way back to OS X 10.5. We’ll be releasing an official new version soon on our web page followed by the Mac App Store version.
The next version of Pocketpedia with fixes for both iOS 7 and iOS 8 is also in the works and should be out in a couple of weeks.
