  1. Yes. That's how it is shown in the example. I agree that it propably isn't the most useful idea. As an option I thought of having just red (or maybe not red but light gray tint instead) for anything over 2 or 3 years old so it would be easy to instantly see projects that are not too likely to update anymore and could be made inactive. But like you said sorting works well too if you remember to check the dates once in a while. Or maybe rather not touch the GUI at all but have Ketarin add a line in the update log saying: "Your oldest update was made x.x years ago for program xxnamexx ."
  2. In case anyone has any use for it. This is a core of a regex string that I use to catch version numbers: (\d*\.?\d*\.?\d*\.?\d+\w?\s?\(?\w*\-?\w*\)?) I modify it slightly for different programs. Change the place of brackets, add a prefix and/or suffix etc. I know it wouldn't need to be this complex for most program entries but this is kind of a good copy paste solution for me. It has limits but works for all my needs. This for example works for Firefox and Thunderbird non-english versions: your language.*?(\d*\.?\d*\.?\d*\.?\d+\w?\s?\(?\w*\-?\w*\)?)
  3. This is what I was thinking. Colors could be chosen better. This is just a presentation of the idea. Any thoughts on this? Worth the trouble? http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae207/Pix3ll470r/colorcoding.png
  4. Thanks for mentioning TextCrawler appyface! It feels like a really useful tool. I use it to match this regex from Ketarin log file and replace it with an empty line: (.* Checking if update is required.*)\n|(.* Determined target file name: .*)\n|(.* Replacing .*)\n|(.* Server source file: .*)\n|(.* Update not required.*)\n|(.* Using referer: .*)\n The log file is so much more readable now! Now that I think it... Could Ketarin have a "minimal logging" -option that would leave these lines out?
  5. Thanks andreone! I had not used regular expressions with Ketarin before but this online tester was a great help: http://gskinner.com/RegExr/ Anyone else with similar problem might want to check the other resources in Ketarin FAQ as well. I checked my Ketarin log and found this: D2X-XL: Update not required, {majorversion} has not changed So I have every reason to believe it works the way I want it to. I made a new variable for "major version number" because I still want to see the full version number on Ketarin Custom Value column when I do decide to launch the GUI fo
  6. Hi timteka! This was exactly what I was thinking too. I was going to make a new thread for this myself. But then I noticed this one. Appyface's workaround has to do it for me now I guess. Yes. And I would only need a report if there were any errors when Ketarin completes the task. Otherwise it could just remain /silent.
  7. Can I make Ketarin update a program only when the 1st or 2nd split of version number changes? Let's say that the version number currently is "1.15.27" and the next update I want is on "1.16.nn" not before. I want it to work so that I won't need to download an update at "1.15.28", "1.15.29" ... etc. I found something at http://ketarin.canneverbe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=83 and tried to do it with Split and Trimend but couldn't get it working right. Is it possible and how would I do it?
  8. Could Ketarin get alternative URL option for file download source? Or could Ketarin choose another sourceforge file host if the originally provided is down? Most of the time I want to download from nearest file provider but if that fails could Ketarin try alternative URL if provided?
  9. Ketarin did this today. I run it with Windows XP scheduler and use it with handles "/silent" and "/notify". Windows was doing some updates of its own at the same time. I have a single core Athlon 64 3000+ (1.8 GHz) processor. I can provide more information on request.
