I will burn my money these white people never answered my e-mails...
New payment type available to Swedish customers — Internet Banking Payment (IBP). When the selected currency for the cart is Swedish Krona and the selected country is Sweden, an "Online Banking" option will appear. Customers who choose this option will select a bank for their payment, and then proceed through the purchase process. As the final step in completing their orders, customers will be directed to a page where they accept (authorize) their payments.
This new payment type will display for everyone when appropriate. There is nothing that you need to do to enable it.
Have you ever thought that it is a shame that Apple forget to add a button in the Safari browser to allow people to easily upload photos from their iPhones to a website? If you build a website, and want to allow iPhone users to upload photos, the only way to do it is to hire an iPhone developer, create an iPhone app, and submit it to the AppStore. This is hands down more convoluted and troublesome than supporting development for common PC or Mac users.
Currently Collection Studio Online service doesn't support easy upload of images for iUsers. But we think that in nearest future we will add this possibility. For all other platforms upload of images works fine.
We always try to keep our software with high quality level as much as possible. The fault-tolerance computing comes first during development. Nevertheless high skilled professionals in programming cannot discover all possible problems in source code of the programs during development and testing. Therefore we have started to use a very nice semantic analyser – cppcheck.
Cppcheck is an static analysis tool for C/C++ code. Unlike C/C++ compilers and many other analysis tools it does not detect syntax errors in the code. Cppcheck primarily detects the types of bugs that the compilers normally do not detect. The goal is to detect only real errors in the code (i.e. have zero false positives).
In spite of there are limits of cppcheck, it shows rather good results in analysis. Just imagine this statistics:
Number of files scanned: 430
Scan duration: 1 hour and 3 minutes
Style warnings: 1017
Portability warnings: 159
Performance warnings: 424
During last weeks we have fixed following issues, reported by cppcheck:
- Mismatching allocation and deallocation
- Memory leak
- Common realloc mistake: 'm_pBuffer' nulled but not freed upon failure
- Unused variables declared;
- Unused private function
- Variable 't_bExistInList' is assigned a value that is never used
- The scope of the variable 'i' can be reduced
- Checking if unsigned variable 'a_nIndex' is positive is always true.
Style warnings: 933
Portability warnings: 1
Performance warnings: 6
All these remaining issues were checked but not fixed, because they will neither enhance program flow nor program development. Anyway we will come back to this analyser time to time in future.
Today in the night, there was unscheduled network downtime. At result of technical issue during standard core infrastructure update DC1 (San Jose) went down for 30 min. Currently this situation is under control and our techs from Serverel Support investigate it to prevent same issues at the future.
In this time, our programmers work on the new update for CollectionStudio Online service – support of custom containers and several types of standard containers (such as wish list, for sale and exchange, and container for deleted collectibles). All this functionality will be then expanded into new section of our collectors’ web site – collectibles store, where you can sell, exchange collectibles with your friends. Containers functionality will be finished at first base version during next week.
From other side, the CollectionStudio will be also updated until the end of this 2011 year. The upcoming version will enclose several improvements in stability, more accurate drawing of main window, enhanced export and import etc.
