Simon 3.5b2 released

Here's a second beta release of Simon 3.5.

This update includes more improvements, including something I've wanted to do for a while: split up the Web (HTTP) plug-in to make it more failsafe. A small number of customers, that use this plug-in extensively, sometimes find that it starts failing after waking the computer. Hopefully this change will solve that. Plus it's better for security and future sandboxing.

There's also an improvement that Japanese people in particular will enjoy, though I'm sure others will benefit too.

Here are the details:

  • Moved the main functionality of the Web (HTTP) plug-in into a helper app, so any issues with it won't affect Simon.
  • The Web (HTTP) plug-in now respects the charset of the source page, so for example the source of a Japanese site will be passed to filters and notifiers correctly.
  • Similarly, the Preview and Show Source windows now respect the charset of the source web pages.
  • Improved split handling in the Script editors.
  • Many changes to improve Mountain Lion compatibility.
  • Fixed a bunch of memory leaks.
  • Prepared for localization updates.
