We released an update to the Slife Mac client yesterday – v3.0.2. The problem is, we’ve heard from many of you that the auto-update feature of the Slife client didn’t work. Instead of installing the new version of the app, auto-update reported that the new version was improperly signed.
This post is just to let you know that we are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. In the meantime, how do you get the new version? Easy, just login to your Slife Web account, click on the ‘Download’ button on the left and then initiate a download for the Mac Client.
Over the last 2 weeks, we’ve been working on the issue that prevents Slife from tracking document names in Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Illustrator CS4.
Unfortunately, it looks like Adobe made some changes to the way these two applications expose information associated with open documents and a resolution to the tracking problem is turning out to be much more complicated than we expected.
This is just a quick update to let you know that we are aware of the problem and working on it. We are contacting the folks at Adobe and trying to understand what our options are. We will post an update to this as soon as we have more information.
If you’ve tried to install the new Slife for Windows v2.0 on Windows Vista 64 and had problems, you were not alone. The good news is that we have a new version available that should take care of this issue. Please check this discussion in the forum for more details and a download link.
We are still making sure that it works as expected for everyone on Vista 64, and as soon as we confirm that it is, we will roll out the fix for everyone.
Special thanks to those of you who brought this to our attention!
Happy New Year!
We are back in business here at Slife Labs and to kick things off, we are announcing the release of Slife for Windows more broadly today. Lifehacker wrote a post about it earlier. Big thanks to Gina, Kevin and the Lifehacker crew. Their post refers to an issue with Vista Home Premium. If you happen to be running Vista, install Slife and run into trouble, please let us know. We will fix it ASAP.
We released a minor update to Slife today, v1.3.2. It comes with some performance optimizations and the removal of some recently added features, such as the notes field (to post notes to Slifeshare) and also the Friends View.
If you are not a Slifeshare user, you won’t miss these features. And that was the point of removing them. We want to keep Slife slim and focused on its primary problem-solving proposition: help you better understand how you spend time in your computer.
If you are running Slife on Leopard, you might have noticed that the menu bar doesn’t update correctly. We are fully aware of the issue and working with Apple to address this ASAP.
Last night we released an update to Slife 1.3 that fixes the reported ‘Activity Reset’ issue. If you are an active user of the Activities feature, it’s definitely worth getting the update. Select “Help>Check for Updates” in the Slife menu and Slife will upgrade itself.
There are a couple of other changes and additions in this minor release as well. You can no longer remove Slife from the Dock and hide its menu bar icon at the same time. This is no good because it makes it impossible to regain control of Slife while it’s still running – Slife becomes completely invisible in the background. Finally, we also added a Refresh button in the bottom pane, for the Friends View.
Ok, now we are moving forward to 1.4. Anything you wanna see in Slife? Now is your chance!
We’ve heard from a couple of people that there’s a bug in the Activities feature of Slife 1.3. It looks like Activities that you create get reset on restart in some cases.
If you are experiencing this issue, keep in mind that we are aware of the problem and will be issuing an update to address this as soon as possible.
