A new major update of Bonsai Desktop v5.0.1 has been released. This is a paid upgrade for Bonsai for Palm OS Desktop Edition and Bonsai Desktop Edition users. The new version targets the desktop application; no changes have been made to the Bonsai for Palm OS application.
Download the 30 day trial version or purchase a license. Existing users can obtain an upgrade from the Natara customer portal. The upgrade is free if you purchased a full license on or after April 1st, 2009 or $12 for Bonsai 4 Desktop Edition users.
Changes in this update include:
- Bonsai Desktop support of outline to outline file synchronization. Can be used by Bonsai USB users wishing to keep their outlines in sync between their local desktop and corresponding outlines on their USB drive. This feature can also be used to share an outline among multiple users.
- Support for syncing outlines to Palm Pre devices for use with Bonsai for Palm OS software ***VIA*** the Classic emulator by MotionApps. Bonsai for Palm is certified for the Classic emulator and Bonsai Desktop can sync your desktop outlines with the Pre when it is connected as a USB mass storage device.
- Improvements to the Find/Replace operations.
- New Quick Filter feature.
- Ability to duplicate outline filters and views.
- Optimized Bonsai background processing, particularly improving CPU usage when the Bonsai application is placed into the background.
- Support for importing and exporting of Bonsai outlines files in a Bonsai Palm (.pdb) format.
- Added Alt+’0’ desktop shortcut to mirror the Shift+ Keypad ‘+’ shortcut for expanding the entire outline. This complements the Alt+’1′ … Alt+’4′ shortcuts for expanding the outline to level ‘n’.
- The “Edit/Insert File Link” menu now allows multiple file links to be inserted.
See the readme file for a complete list of changes in this version.
While Bonsai v5 is compatible with the current release of the Bonsai Palm product, this is probably the last major release that we will try to maintain compatibility with Palm OS. Future releases (Bonsai v6 and beyond) may have data formatting changes that will no longer support Bonsai for Palm OS.
