2004-11-22 Bug found at 1.13 for PocketPC

A bug is found at 1.13 for PocketPC. I upload temporary fix version as SNAPSHOT. If you download 1.13 and you are PocketPC user, please use SNAPSHOT version.

The fixed version is : TOMBO_20041121.zip. This bug is for only PocketPC. If you are not use PocketPC, please use 1.13

2004-11-21 TOMBO 1.13 released.

At 1.13, you can hide headline string from filename.

Since a file name is generated at random, those who do not know a password are unable to guess the contents from a file name. Of course, when it opens from TOMBO, a headline is displayed on a tree like before version if you enter the password.

1.13 fixes:

  • Add "Hide headline from filename" option for encrypted notes
  • When tapping & pasting, move cursor to the place tapping.

if you have existing encrypted notes and apply this feature, please decrypt once and re-encrypt it.
