ReNamer 6.9

ReNamer 6.9 has been released!

Most notable changes from the user’s point of view:

  1. Implemented rule comments. This was one of the most requested features. Rule comments are editable via the rules context menu and visible in the Statement column. See the demo screenshots below.

  2. Added a dialog for manually entering file paths for renaming. Useful when you have a list of paths as plain text.

  3. Added Dutch and Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) translations.

  4. Various efficiency improvements.

Complex rules can be difficult to read...

Color me impressed! smile

I have been using version 5 for so long that I had forgotten to check how much this program had evolved.

It really shows how much effort Dennis has been making into further developing the product.

I believe it's really (really!) worth buying now, even if it costs more than half of what I spend on food each month... I promise I'll start saving money just for this purpose. cool

Congratulations, Dennis! (Really nice job wink )

Visiting the forum after a hiatus of 4 years! smile

It's great to see this is going strong as ever!

In this layout, the same Statement column represents either the composed rule or the comment; which is a little unintuitive. Instead, can we have Comment as a separate column, and then a column-management feature that allows the user to show/hide columns, and change their sequence?

Let the user right-click in the column header and trigger the column-manager dialog.
He should be able to drag and drop the columns to change their sequence.

Glad to see you back here! smile

All your suggestions about the Comment column and column management features in general are right on the spot. This is all planned, along dozens, if not hundreds, of other features and improvements.

This is an internal feature, it doesn't have any direct effect for the user.

Unit tests ensure that future changes to the code base or the development environment don't have an undesired effect. These tests are executed as part of the development workflow. Unit tests provide a layer of testing, in addition to the functional testing, which increases the chances of detecting issues/bugs earlier.

The indirect effect for the user is, hopefully, a better long term experience.
