So I've finally released a relatively minor update to xGestures that fixes a bunch of bugs that people have been complaining about for a while. Unfortunately, there are still several bugs that I haven't had the opportunity to fix, and several features people have been requesting forever now that I still haven't had the time to add. But in case you're wondering, here's stuff I really, honestly, plan to do at some point in the future:
- Adding a feature for exporting and importing preferences. I plan to make this work so that you can import individual application preferences, as well as duplicate gestures and entire applications. So if you have 5 zillion gestures set up for your favorite web browser, and then you start using a slightly different web browser, you can copy over the gestures rather than having to do them all over again.
- I want to fix the Wacom tablet problem. LOTS of people have complained that xGestures doesn't work with Wacom tablets. The problem, though, is that I don't own a Wacom tablet and don't have easy access to one right now. As soon as I can get my hands on one, though, I'm going to see if I can fix things.
I'm also working on a new software project right now that's already getting pretty close to being finished. I'd say it's something like 70% of the way there. I'm almost certainly going to release it as freeware or donationware, because it's simple enough that I don't think it warrants people having to go through the effort of paying money to use it. But it's a cool idea, though, and it might actually be pretty popular. I'm not going to say what it is though just so I can be stupidly secretive with the four people who read this blog!!
