Cryptnos for Windows 1.1.1 released

July 23rd, 2010 | Comment?

We are happy to announce that Cryptnos for Windows 1.1.1 is now available for download. This is mostly a bug fix release, which hopefully addresses the update checker issue previously reported. Unfortunately, I’m not 100% sure this fixes the issue, as only one person has reported it and I haven’t heard back from her in a couple months. If nothing else, there is a lot more error checking going on in the update checker now, so hopefully it will not crash Cryptnos completely if something goes wrong. If it does, the steps to disable the update check listed in the news item linked above will continue to work.

The only other outward facing change is a minor improvement to how Cryptnos reports problems with copying passwords to the clipboard. There is a known problem in Windows that many people believe to be something Microsoft broke in XP Service Pack 3 and beyond that causes the clipboard to fail to copy something intermittently. Microsoft denies the issue, but it’s been reported so many times that many people agree that it’s a problem with the OS, not the applications. We here behind Cryptnos concur, as we’re following all the appropriate steps to copy the password to the clipboard (one lousy line of code) and it usually works. It’s just sometimes… it doesn’t. Well, the error that pops up when this occurs is a bit more informative now as we’ve isolated this step from all the others and we can catch its errors separately.

Cryptnos for Windows 1.1.1 is still compatible with Cryptnos for Android 1.1.0, which hasn’t changed (yet). We’re going to try and keep these guys in sync at the major and minor version numbers, leaving any version numbers beyond that for bug fixes and possibly revision numbers. Thus, 1.1 is 1.1, no matter what comes after it, and Windows 1.1 should be equivalent in functionality to Android 1.1.
