MacGourmet 1.1 released
You can find a full list of the changes here.
Here are some highlights:
- New HTML/CSS based printing. You can now print one or many items, and can print on Avery 3x5 (5388) and 4x6 (8386) index cards as well as just ordinary paper. I've tried something different, and that is making printing utilize HTML pages, that hopefully others will add to in the future. This allows real designers to create templates that don't require code changes, all they have to do is be dropped into a folder with a configuration file.
- New display templates for recipes, wine notes and cooking notes. There is a new, simpler set, and MacGourmet now supports drop-in support of new templates, in the same manner as print templates. Others will now be able to create additional ones if desired. The old ones are still available as well.
- New publishing templates, available when you create or modify Publications in Publish preferences. There are 3 new sets for publishing to the web, one that is like the current built-in templates, and 2 new ones. MacGourmet now supports drop-in support of new templates, in the same manner as the display and print templates. Others will now be able to create additional ones if desired.
A lot of shopping list changes. They can now be sorted, like ingredients from multiple recipes are now combined, if possible, and they can now be exported in HandyShopper, SplashShopper and plain text formats.
