What's new in The Serial Keeper X

Version 3.3:
  • [New] The Information List (Entries list) now has a disclosure triangle. This expands to show the rows in the Info/Serials List contents.
  • [New - OS X Only] Info/Serials sheet -- an OS X sheet window is now available when holding the Option key and selecting an entry. In that sheet you can double click the info and that will bring up the Information Editor.
  • [New] Entries can now be exported/imported to/from XML. The XML isn't that greatly implemented and can't import XML from other programs.
  • [New] A Hidden Entries list has been added. It's now possible to hide an entry from being shown. This is useful when you have a lot of entries that aren't needed, but you want to save them and not see them. You must unhide the entry in order to edit/view it.
  • [New] Open Recent menu added. This is to conform more with Mac OS's HIG.
  • [New] Exporting info from the Info/Serials list is now implemented.
  • [New] You can now hide the Contact and Shown Info columns in the Entry List. This is controlled in the Database Preferences (Edit Menu).
  • [New] A rebuild/compact menu item has been added. This menu item allows for a compacting of the database.
  • [Change] Deleting multiple entries at one time is now possible.
  • [Change] Opening multiple entries at one time is now possible. That is, if you select multiple entries and click "Edit..." those entries will open.
  • [Change] The Info/Serials list now has strips. That is, every other row has a user selectable background color.
  • [Change] The Info Editor (New Entry or Edit Entry) windows now stagger on top of each other a little -- this is a basic stagger and may not work properly in some situations.
  • [Change] The carbon (OS X) runs as Mach-O now -- which should increase performance. However, this means that the carbon version will no longer run under OS 9. This decision was made because the PPC version worked better then the carbon version under OS 9.
  • [Change] Other changes here and there.
  • [Fix] Copying entries to other files is possible once again. You do this by dragging/dropping files from and to other files.
  • [Fix] Copying Info/Serial rows is possible once again. You do this by dragging/dropping those rows in the Info/Serials List.
  • [Fix] Assigning a new Contact in an Entry that was opened during creation of said contact now works.
  • [Fix] Info Editor did not have a title.
  • [Fix] New or Edit Info Editor gives title to the Entry Editor.
  • [Fix] Contact info (snail mail and net address) listbox's contents now line up with each other.
  • [Fix] Other bugs here and there.

I have used this app since version 1; tried others, in case it was not updated, but always came back to this one. Now using Snow Leopard, and praying it will continue to work. works fine now- this has been indispensable to me- does one thing and does it beautifully. please keep continuing to update!

This thing just seems ... dangerous. If this file was somehow hijacked, you'd be in serious trouble, not to mention promoting (unwittingly) to sw piracy. What's wrong with just typing out your apps and serial number in TextEdit and printing a couple hardcopies out?

The information you put in to The Serial Keeper is up to you. Not everything is required. In fact, with The Serial Keeper 3.2, you can setup the information entry almost to your liking.

This program stores just about everything you could possibly want to know about a piece of software, the developer, and the sales transaction; and more! TOO much more. Perhaps it wouldn't matter if the filling in of information was easier. But rather than typing info into a simple template where unneeded bits can be ignored, this thing requires you to bring up special windows with large annoying tables for different portions of the information and those windows beget still more for typing each individual bit of info. All in all, the UI is pretty ghastly, hence the worst rating for ease of use. Additionally it seems to lack any type of encryption or other security. Tried it. Tossed it. Therefore no knowledge of stability. Looks like i'll be sticking with VSE My Privacy in Classic until a Jaguar program i can stand comes along.
