Monocle Release Notes

Monocle Release Notes

What's new?

Monocle 1.5.1 (53)

January 28, 2008

Ready for Tiger, too (whoops!)

  • Fixed a bug where you couldn't bring up the sheet to add engines on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).
  • Fixed a bug where you couldn't enable/disable individual suggestion/result sources on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).

Monocle 1.5 (52)

January 21, 2008

Suggestions

  • Monocle 1.5 now has query suggestions and preliminary results. Query suggestions are simply autocomplete suggestions for the text query, and are fetched through Google Suggest. Preliminary results are the first few results off of Google. Both are displayed in a list just below the search panel as soon as you start typing.
  • Every type of suggestions and results can be turned off individually in the preferences, and rearranged to be in a different order. You can also set a different rule for each search engine - for example, disabling Google results on Wikipedia.
  • Suggestions and results load incrementally. Even though results take slightly longer to load in than suggestions, you get the suggestions right away.
  • Plugins to add support for other suggestion/result providers are supported - for more information, see the Headers folder inside Monocle's bundle, and please let us know if you create something interesting.

Ready for Leopard

  • The menu bar icon is drawn slightly sunken to fit in with other menu bar icons.
  • There are a bunch of new search panel backgrounds for Leopard, and some old ones have been removed. The new default is Leopard Pale, which mimics Leopard windows that are in the background.
  • Monocle's search window now shows up in all Spaces, just like the menu bar.
  • When adding engines, "favicons" from web sites are now received when using Safari 3 on Tiger or Leopard.
  • Everything in Monocle is resolution-independent. If you try to use a higher resolution right now, it won't look too good since the system itself is not fully primed for higher resolutions yet. But when it is, Monocle will be ready.

Tweaks

  • The way you add an engine has changed slightly. You still perform a test search to add the engine, but all prospective engines end up in a list at the bottom of the sheet and will be added when you close the sheet, and you can remove extraneous engines detected sometimes.
  • The search panel's appearence has been tweaked. It now doesn't have rounded corners, and the application menu arrow on the right is slightly more prominent. (You can also tab to it and hit space to unfold it just by using the keyboard.)
  • The preferences have been rearranged - in particular, the engines tab is now more straightforward and allows editing of colors and icons without bringing up an edit sheet.
  • There's now a preference for if you want to empty the search field between searches.
  • Monocle also works better with Exposé, where it will fade out when entering "Show All Windows" mode.

Tremendous thanks to the 1.5 beta testers.

Version 1.5 | Release Date: 2008-01-20 | Download

Suggestions and preliminary results, Leopard ready, fixes and tweaks.

Version 1.1b1 | Release Date: 2007-05-12 | Download

Changed search bar to be slimmer. The icon blob now forms the left cap.
Added a bunch of new system color-like apparences to the search bar.
Engines carry information about the character encoding needed. Multibyte scripts like Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Vietnamese should work better.
The encoding is picked up when you automatically add ("discover") a new engine. This is complex stuff so there are probably edge cases in which this isn't picked up correctly. Bug reports are welcome along with the URL to the engine.
The encoding is available for editing when you manually add a new engine or edit an existing engine. All IANA charset names supported by Mac OS X are supported but some common ones are listed for convenience.

Version 1.0.1 | Release Date: 2007-02-14 | Download
  1. Monocle's application menu now includes a menu item that takes you to Monocle's web site.
  2. Monocle now closes the search bar's window when hiding itself. This has the effect that it can be brought up on all desktops in VirtueDesktop, whereas earlier it would stay on the desktop it was opened. Thanks to Andreas Fuchs for reporting this.
  3. When you use ⇡/⇣ to change engines, the insertion point now stays in its place. (Previously it would go to the start or end of the query.) Thanks to Daniel Jalkut for reporting this.
  4. Monocle now responds to Enter on more keyboards than before. Thanks to Matthias Steffens for reporting this.
  5. Using Return/Enter to launch searches and ⇡/⇣ to switch engines made using Kotoeri text input and other methods of input for asian scripts much harder in 1.0 (24). Thanks to the above change, Return/Enter should not interfere, and it is now an option to use ⌘⇣/⇡ instead of ⇡/⇣ to change engines.
