Title: WatchDirectory 4.5.7 beta 1
Post by Gert on Dec 22nd, 2008 at 10:47am
Hello All!

We have a new beta for WatchDirectory with the following changes:

  • The wdPostMan program (System.Mail) sometimes had long delays between sending messages
  • A new "dynamic naming function": {title{text] - this will return "Text" in title-case (first letter UPPERcase)

You can download the new beta here:
link removed, see the reply below for a new download link

Just install it "on top" of your current version so it will see your current settings/tasks.

WD 4.5.7 Beta 2 is now available. This version will probably be the official release early next year.
New in beta 2:
All plugins that allow "Dynamic Naming" now have the option to "modify" the timestamps for date/time related dynamic names.
Copied from the english helpfile:

     It is also possible to do some limited arithmetic on these date/times.
     Suppose you want to use the last-modified date as a dynamic name, for example
     However, you want to "add 1 day" to this timestamp. You can do this by entering the following "date modifier" somewhere:
     so it becomes
     This will add 1 day to the last-modified date. You can also add or subtract hours ({lm:+22h}) minutes ({lm:+10m}) and seconds ({lm:+10s}).
     You can combine multiple date modifiers, for example
     This will add 1 day, subtract 30 hours, subtract 2 minutes and finally adds 4 seconds.
     To change the "System Date/Time", use {cu:+1d} (cu = current)
     To change the "Last Modified Date/Time", use {lm:+1d}
     To change the "Last Accessed Date/Time", use {la:+1d}
     To change the "Creation Date/Time", use {cr:+1d}

this version is now released
