Chinese Toolbox 2012 (

And I thought I was going to be able to relax! As it turns out, the last 16 days have been as intense as ever. For example, after working all night on the website update, I began uploading the new installers just after 5:00 am (Taiwan time) today, and around 8:00 am the update was complete.

After releasing I began to spend more time just to use Chinese Toolbox and work on my own reading. After a couple days and clicking in all the wrong places, I discovered a couple crashers which obviously had to be fixed ASAP. So I began poking a little more intensely and found a few other things that could be improved. If you like, view the CT Release Notes to see what's been keeping me busy for the last two weeks.

So here you have my first shot at "trying something different" (previous post). I wasn't expecting to do an update for at least a month or so. Anyways, I hope you like this release. It looks better than ever, and it does everything as designed--at least until the next bug is found (knock on wood). Seriously though, all the years of effort are showing through in this newest edition, and it's something I'm very proud of. Check it out and let me know what you think. I appreciate constructive comments, both positive and negative. They help me do a better job the next time around.
