New Version for the Pedia Programs: 4.6.5

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Version 4.6.5 is just a small update but it fixes some nagging bugs, especially for the RTF text export (which didn’t encode correctly for diacritics and languages with characters not found in ASCII). The search plug-in architecture has also been completely revamped along with fixes to most of the plug-ins for retrieving more data, in particular larger cover images where available.

To get the update just run your current Pedias and use the ‘Check for Updates’ command found under the program name.

For Mac App Store users – the update has been submitted for DVDpedia, Bookpedia and CDpedia and hopefully they’ll be approved soon.

New Info View Template: Jungle Green

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

DVDpedia user Chas has written an info view template, with the help of Forum user Jonas, that includes some nifty links to Wikipedia and IMDb.

Just click on the little icons next to a name and the relevant page will open. Of course the possibilities here are endless – icons like these could be used for links to Metacritic, Rotten Tomatoes, Hulu… (Reminds me of the LeoTab info view template which incorporates a trailer and cover image search.)

You can download the template from our Extras page. I hope you enjoy it; thanks Chas!
