AcidSearch 0.62

Well, after receiving a flood of mail, both kind and unkind, I have released 0.62. Yes, hell froze over, and yes, I have succumbed and made a universal binary. I'd like to cordially invite all of you Intel users to check it out. However, the following disclaimer applies: That said, this release should provide a stopgap between 0.61 and 0.7, and I apologize for not putting it out sooner. My reasoning was this: I am working on a new version, from the ground up, (my current build has NO code from previous versions—it's all from scratch). I don't want to have to maintain two completely different builds. Oh, and if you wouldn't mind, for this release, please refrain from sending bug reports unless you're running Intel. I know of many issues with the current version, and they have not been addressed in this release. I mentioned before about having a bug tracking system, and I decided to scrap that. However, I have set up a wiki on the site and will make it public once I deem it ready. It will be an official place to discuss the software as well as keep track of bugs, feature requests, and the like. It's a tad overwhelming to do simply via email.

Many of you probably think that AcidSearch 0.7 is vaporware. I can say this: contrary to popular belief, I am working on a new version, and it is coming along well. There will be new features in it that make it worth it. That said, I do have things in my life that are more important to me than my freeware hobby, and they continue to take precedent.

I'd really like to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported my work, by whatever means, be it consistent Safari crash reports (yes, I'm looking at you, Chris), or donations, or prods on the status of 0.7, or even just a thanks email. I really do appreciate all of these efforts, and they help me continue putting time into an otherwise rather fruitless endeavor. This is not a joke; I probably would not keep doing this, if it weren't for you guys. Developing freeware really can be a thankless job. Those of you who positively support me are what makes it worth it.
