  • Make sure to properly re-enable username/password fields upon failed logins to allow re-entering user credentials without having to reload the widget first.
  • Improve robustness of login (avoiding potential race condition which could have resulted in failed logins before).
  • Immediately reload the system Address Book if another process changed the database instead of waiting for the next automatic reload.
  • Make sure the hover text on the call logo is always up-to-date (it might have incorrectly read "Place call" before when asnwering an SMS from a Growl notification).
  • Make sure we always display the scrollbar on the forwarding list if we have more than three forwarding numbers.

Improvements/bug fixes:

  • Holding the mouse over an entry in the list when searching for a contact will now show a tool tip with the full name/number. This allows to distinguish similar name/number combinations that are too long to be fully displayed.

  • Make sure we don't display "undefined" for our own GV number on the widget.
  • Improve speed and decrease amount of data when reloading contacts.
  • Change transition between the invididual views in order to avoid cosmetic glitches.
Version 1.5 | Release Date: 2009-08-26 | Download

    Clicking on a Growl notification will mark the message as read and open the Dashboard on the SMS view, with the sender's address entered into the number field (for SMS notifications) or download the Voicemail to your 'Downloads' folder and play it for you (for Voicemail messages). The frequency for the Growl notifications can be set on the back of the widget.

Improvements/bug fixes:
