This update is a joke.

No, really. Localizations were promised a long time ago, and with the major pricey update, nothing new on this side.

But the scariest part is that Forklift don't do Unicode. So, I have a bunch of files written in Japanese, which appear like garbage and are unusable with Forklift.

My point is: if Forklift can't even do something built right into Mac OS, not only can't I trust such a "Windows-like" application, but I consider the promise of localizations was only talk, which is a definitive trust-breaking.

I'm going back to Transmit, less-featrured, but which not only works, and is open to the rest of the World.

As for Unicode, I take my complaint back.

But I fill another one. :-P
I think Unicode should be the default view.

And for translation, you can always find kind users who will work in exchange of a licence. On my side, I can translate into French.
But it means you, devs, have to prepare the app to use langage files, which I believe is not something who asks for many ressources.

In both case, thank you for your fast answer, it gives back some trust for me, which is quite nice. :-)

At last, an update.

It's nice, but I have some comments :

- the importer still does not work properly. If you added your favorite groups as favorites, it's good. If you managed directly the categories, you're out of luck,

- the icons of the Directory are just plain ugly,

- don't try to add read/unread option ; do it !

Work has been done on Unison, no doubt, but I think the one-man-behind should only do programming, and that a designer should work with him, for all questions fonctions/interface/decisions.

History already prove that programmers should only program and stay away from design and usability questions, and Unison is no exception.

Great, an answer from Panic. :-)

So far, my first day of testing is good.

But, I notice the interface is somewhat slow.

When auto-cleaning download list, the previous version was quite smoother.

Anyway, since the 2.0, it's heading in the right direction. :-)

I used to love this application, and still want to love it, but...

Panic does not keep us informed.

Also, Unison needs badly to be updated, and it should have been WAY before Snow Leopard. Its code needs huge tuning, especially when working with big download lists. It crashes sometimes, and even if you save the list fine, it often gets corrupted. Also, the database is slow ! Groups can be very crowded, and you can do a better job working with the database, saving us time waiting for the damn thing to be updated, filtered, and all.

And what about exporting database ? Back-up fonction ? And any new feature many people ask for ?

Not talking about the Snow Leopard introduced bugs, other people pointed them out very well: by today's Mac standards, Unison should be labelled as an early beta.

Panic really don't care about its customers, but still want us to support them. Guys, that doesn't work this way. I already gave up Transmit for Flow, where I get real support and where app is really updated. What's keeping me to Unison is that there's no alternative, and I am pretty sure you use this fact in order to keep the app unworked on.

I have lost faith and respect to you. It's up to you to get them back.

Updated to the new version, which came as a wonderful and welcomed surprise.

But I had to revert to the old one, since I never got the burn button to work.
(Snow Leopard 10.6.4, Mac Pro 1,1, Pioneer DVR-212)

Old version working fine, tho, so I guess next version will fix it. ^^
