Today we are releasing the 1.5 version of our rich text components. This marks the second unified release where several parts of our rich text eco system are maturing in lock-step.
For the most part these improvements and enhancements were funded from exceptional sales of DTRichTextEditor as well as several sponsors who stepped forward to allow me to finally get support for lists implemented.
From what I can tell the clients who licensed the editor are way more willing to contribute funds to something they have already paid for, than for enhancing the – otherwise free with attribution – DTCoreText.

This new version of the Mac status bar app for automatically downloading sales reports contains a few minor fixes:
- Replaced Status Bar Icon with vector-based version
- Improved Menu Handling Code
- Improved handling of Mac Standby
- Reduced Min OS Version to 10.7
- Added Validation for Vendor ID
- Added Automatic Updates via Sparkle
The Developer-ID signed version with Sparkle can be downloaded here, and of course you can build a version yourself from the 0.3.0 tag on GitHub.

AutoIngest for Mac is a small app that runs in your status bar and downloads your app sales reports. This helps you keep an independent archive of all your reports without having to rely on a third party.
At present in the Daily, Monthly, Weekly and Yearly flavors. You can also activate the auto-download where it will do the downloading every 24 hours. You can put this on each of your Macs if you download the reports to a shared Dropbox folder because each instance will automatically skip report files that are already present locally.
Version 0.2 is the first version that we are distributing as a Developer ID-signed app. This is convenient for people who don’t want to build it from source code but still want to have a version they know they can trust, with a Developer ID signature.

I forgot about posting a summary of the changes and updates in 1.4.1, and now I needed to release 1.4.2 as an interim release because I am working on a few improvements for 1.5 that are also potentially breaking some usage scenarios related to text attachments.

You probably have looked at CocoaPods by now and found it to be a great way to quickly pull together all your favorite Open Source components for an app. After our recent move to Git I researched some more and found that it is exceptionally easy to also provide specs for your closed source private code.
Update: Updated Resource Bundle generation use the new syntax of CocoaPods 0.18.

Beginning with version 1.4 we will advance the version tags on DTCoreText and DTRichTextEditor in sync. DTCoreText is in charge of HTML parsing, display and HTML generation inside the editor component and thus all the changes done there are indirectly benefitting editor users as well.
I’ve begun to aggregate issues on both GitHub and our own private GitLab instance via milestones. These are the grouping unit collecting issues so that you can tell from which version onward these fixes or enhancements are available. Each milestone will become a tag, once it is completed and will represent a stable version.

Just a week ago I started DTXMLRPC as a means to post to my WordPress blog from QuickRadar. Somebody took a liking to it and sponsored me to continue work on it. So I implementing the remaining data types for XML-RPC serialization and improved the demo by adding a demonstration how to upload an image to WordPress.
The DTWordpress class, based on DTXMLRPC, provides an ever growing number of WordPress API calls, like retrieving a user’s blogs, a blog’s categories, posting a new article and uploading an image. All is block based.

Since we moved our components from Subversion to our new shiny GitLab server we contacted all clients and asked them for what git credentials they wish to use. Doing so we found that by far the most copies of all components had been sold for DTNotePadView.
Because of this I went in and gave it some love.
