3.52 February 25, 2005

  • Fix: save records without inquiry.

3.51 January 8, 2005

  • New: a title for the more window, to help you call the menu in the middle of the night in total darkness.
  • Fix: show scroll bars after leaving a quiz.

3.5 October 30, 2004

  • New: less verifying needed, many operations much faster.
  • New: no flickering on program startup.
  • New: statistics for last quiz.
  • New: use hardware buttons also in browse mode.
  • New: a [mark] button on the [more] screen (in browse mode).
  • Old: dropped the 20 minutes rule that was introduced in version 3.1 as it conflicts with last quiz statistics.

3.4 September 9, 2004

  • New: Shuffles quiz after compilation.

3.3 April 19, 2004

  • New: Run quizzes without pen, only with the hardware buttons (select via menu Options/Preferences).
  • New: Scroll a text field with the PageUp and PageDown hardware buttons.
  • New: Some statistics, after all!
  • Fix: save record before option windows pop up.
  • Fix: bidirectional quiz is resumed always in the right direction.

3.1 December 19, 2003 

  • New: Find dialog with two-codepage support (uses codepage of the field that was last tapped).
  • New: On startup, after a break of more than 20 minutes, Lexi won't continue the quiz, but restart it.
  • New: Copy dialog shows percentage.
  • Fix: compile buttons adjusted.
  • Fix: percentage labels initialized.
  • Fix: update file list after file close.
  • Fix: don't read beyond end of file during verify.

3.0 November 9, 2003

  • New: with PiLoc installed, Lexi now can use two different codepages for question and answer simultaneously (select via menu Options/Languages). For example: hebrew question and arabic answer (this combination not tested yet...). Get languages from Paragon Software.
  • New: change font sizes (menu: Options/Font).
  • New: when you start Lexi it can now return to where you left from (menu: Options/Preferences).
  • New: compile and run quizzes now via the "Quiz" button with three keystrokes instead of seven. (This is much faster, believe me, if once you get used to it and stop searching for the "Quiz" menu.)
  • New: almost all menu commands now can be accessed with keystrokes (accelerator characters).

2.43 May 10, 2003

  • Fix: show "Verifying..." message only when necessary

2.42 April 18, 2003

  • Fix: verifies before quiz reset.

2.41 February 9, 2003

  • New: highlight selected item in combo field.
  • Fix: "Verifying..." message won't drop off the screen (on "Mark for next quiz").
  • Fix: Compiling twice will not initialize quiz results.

2.4 January 19, 2003

  • New: duplicate records.
  • New: reset quiz result. (I really didn't miss this often, but anyway - now it's there.)
  • Faster (on program start and file close).
  • "Verifying..." and "Compiling..." messages now updated every 5 seconds with current status.

2.3 December 20, 2002

  • Beam files.

2.2 December 14, 2002

  • Better usage of display size #1: All text fields now show 5 lines instead of 4.
  • Better usage of display size #2: The combo box is removed when the file doesn't use it. The text fields for question and answer can make use of the full display width now.
  • Corrected: on file open the program showed randomly the file properties record.

2.1 August 24, 2002

  • Maximum file name length increased to 29 characters. Longer file names from LexiCreator won't crash the program any more.

2.01 April 29, 2002

  • Fixed a minor glitch in quiz control (when during a quiz the user modifies a record and then "cancels" storing, the quiz result was stored more than once).
  • Fixed two new memory leaks which I introduced with release 2.0.

2.0 February 2, 2002

  • Added file handling capabilities (new, open, copy, rename, delete, properties). Now the program can handle more than one database.
  • The combo box is now fed by the database properties.
  • Quiz control improved again.
  • Fixed some more memory leaks.
  • Upgrade information: Hotsync first to backup your database. Then install Lexi 2.0. When you run Lexi 2.0 for the first time, your database will show up as "LexiDB". Use Lexi to rename it to something more meaningful.

1.04 August 6, 2001

  • Fixed several small memory leaks.
  • Added version number to about box.

1.03 May 30, 2001

  • Fixed the program freeze at startup, that happened under certain circumstances (the last quiz was compiled "up to lesson 0", and there were no records in "lesson 0", so the program would search forever). This bug was introduced with release 1.02.
  • Removed the "Help" menu entry, that never contained help anyway. Moved the "About Lexi" entry to the "Records" branch.

1.02 May 5, 2001

  • Before the program terminates, it now always returns to the main form. So changes to the data can always be saved. (This fixes that fatal error my wife found after playing around with the program for only 2 minutes...)
  • Random record at startup now is selected between lesson 0 and the upper limit used for last compilation.
  • If quiz results are equal for both directions (e.g. native-to-foreign and foreign-to-native), the direction is randomly selected.
  • The about box now points to agrino.org.

1.01 April 18, 2001

  • After compilation, the history of the quiz wasn't completely reset. Therefore quiz control didn't work as expected.
  • If a save operation should fail (out of memory for example), an error message will appear now.

1.4.6 March 6, 2006

  • Fix: button text language depends on user's OS now.

1.4.5 February 4, 2006

  • Fix: better adjustment to screen settings.
  • New: change window size.

1.4.4 December 13, 2004

  • Fix: save text file without need to rename (bug introduced with v1.4.2)
  • Fix: show error messages everywhere (!) instead of error codes.

1.4.3 October 5, 2004

  • New: imports text files faster, needs less memory.

1.4.2 September 18, 2004

  • Fix: show error messages instead of error codes.
  • Fix: don't try to duplicate a record when the file is empty.

1.4.1 September 13, 2004

  • Fix: text file import initializes "quiz both directions" flag.
  • Fix: text file import leaves unused combo empty.

1.4 September 9, 2004

  • New: will open the file passed as a command line argument.

1.31 May 1, 2004

  • Fix: unique ID on text import with a random base.
  • Fix: update progress bar on text import.

1.3 November 9, 2003

  • New: assigns unique ID for new records itself, instead of letting HotSync do it. Therefore new records have their unique ID before they are installed to the PDA, and files enhanced on the PC can be shared immediately, before installation and backup.

1.2.2 April 18, 2003

  • Improved import of text files that were created with Excel.

1.2.1 April 1, 2003

  • Fix: find Palm Installer when path contains blanks.

1.2 January 16, 2003

  • New: duplicate records.
  • Fix: Prevent deletion of current record when no record is there.

1.1.1 January 2, 2003

  • Fixed line feed conversions in combo box.

1.1 August 20, 2002

1.0.1 May 26, 2002

  • Fix: When importing text files, LexiCreator now checks for field length.

1.0 April 2, 2002

  • Initial release.
