If you found this, just a heads up that this is not the official IQBox blog any longer. It was moved quite a while ago.
IQBox’s blog has moved to:
I am going to move the project’s source hosting to Git… To be clear, FTP will still be the backend for IQBox itself, I’m just saying that the programmers will use GIT to share the IQBox source code.
Looks like word of mouth is traveling. The pre-alpha 4 (older than current) is now listed on SoftSea and got a 4/5 rating. Pretty good for a pre-alpha! We also got the 100% Free award from Softpedia. I put a lot of effort into making the software work well out of the box, and without polluting the user’s computer. For example, I could’ve used the registry for setup wizard registration and data, but there’s better ways ie: local data files.
I know I mentioned to some people I’d release the next version of IQBox today, but it looks like it will need to be by Monday. According to the roadmap, we’re still ahead of the game. Check the roadmap for the upcoming features.
Another reason to use IQBox: Here’s the link from Dropbox themselves. It’s verified: They weren’t checking passwords for 4 hours!
My response: Working to release the next build of IQBox ASAP! Now the burning need is extremely clear and I’ve had people contact me. I hope to release the next version tomorrow, June 30th, which will add a lot of robustness.
Just in case DropBox’s post is removed, I copied and pasted it below:
Within 3 weeks the next major revision of IQ Box should be released. Major updates to this upcoming version include:
Also, the menu option to “reset” all SVN data (it deletes the .SVN folders) and start over, in the case of a real mess. This is actually quite a good problem solver if things really do go wrong. I’m using a shared Internet connection from Israel right now (on vacation) so the constant disconnections provide a great way to test, lol.
Also, we now have over 100 downloads.. Woohoo! :)
