Version Numbering

Since the dawn of time I have been using one of the more traditional types of version numbering systems for all my software developments. Recently however I have ‘enhanced’ my methodology and now use something slightly different.

To the outside world not a lot will appear to have changed, the N.N.N methodology will still be used, albeit with a slightly different interpretation. Internally however I will be using the full version numbering system shown below:

Aside from building the release date and time into the version number and swapping out Revision Number for Restricted Release Number, the main benefits to me are building an ascending Feature Number and Fix Number into the version number.

These numbers will only ever increase, regardless of the program status changing from (for example) Version 1 to Version 2. This means that at a glance I can see how  features and fixes have been applied to this particular program since day one, without having to go to Version Control for this information.

Dereliction of Duties

Wow! Did I really neglect my Blog for so long? I’ve undertaken three major projects this year which until recently have been taking all my time. So do I put the kettle on, feet on the desk and read my Facebook Feed? No! Instead over the next few days I’ll be updating this site and paying a bit more attention to the ‘public facing’ side of my business.

Feels good to be back 🙂

ContaxCRM: Now Free of Charge !  

Happy New Year ! This is my first post of 2015, a year in which I intend to focus and streamline my business with a discipline that I have been previously lacking !

I have a lot to tell you about, and I will cover this in far more detail later, but for now just a quick note to say that ContaxCRM, for Mac and Windows, is now available free of charge. No strings.

Of course if you require additional services such as training or software changes then these will be quoted and charged appropriately. The software however is now free to use, although I still of course retain the Copyright.

Until I get the website updated you can get a free license from me directly by emailing me at scholerton@gmail.com

Best Wishes – Steve

Export data from your CRM with oneSql

I’ve uploaded another movie to our YouTube page today. This one shows an example of how to use oneSql to export contacts from your CRM system.

I have also been testing Mac OSX Yosemite Beta on one of my development computers. Here is a picture of oneSql running on Yosemite. Note the new native  control designs and colours. I think I like it 🙂
