Version History

2.1.1 2008-08-19
  • Internal code changes that address a security vulnerability in the Yahoo! Widget Engine
  • Fixed a minor bug with Restoring Default Preferences if the widget was minimized
  • Added a more prominent "loading/retrieving" indicator, which can be turned on/off via the Preferences
  • Added better error checking around the exporting and importing of skins
  • Internal code changes: improved error handling/checking
  • Fixed a bug/typo with adjusting the time (for the selected time zone) if the time was 12:00 pm
  • Added Alaska Time and Hawaii-Aleutian Time to the time zone Preference
  • Fixed some problems (caused by a change on ESPN's site. curse you, ESPN!) with displaying the conference standings
  • Modified the widget so that the time zone indicator appears only in the header and not for each time; doing so makes the time column narrower (always a good thing)
  • Fixed some problems (caused by a change on ESPN's site. curse you, ESPN!) with displaying the conference standings
  • Added a "Jump to Conference" context menu item to make it easier to jump to a specific conference. The context menu is invoked by right-clicking (Windows) or CTRL-clicking (Mac) on the widget.
  • Fixed a bug where the dock didn't necessarily show the record for the selected sport
  • Modified the dock to not show the conference record if there isn't a conference record; an example of this would be the IA Independents conference, to which Notre Dame belongs (football)
  • Fixed a bug with importing skins
  • Fixed a minor bug with applying the "logo opacity" preference
  • Fixed a bug that caused the title to be aligned incorrectly if "Show Title in Row" was checked and then later unchecked
  • Made some changes to the code that imports skins (specifically the code that handles the buttonRow)
  • Added Football/Basketball/W Basketball Conference options to the Preferences (under Team Info). Conference is initially pulled from the skin settings, but adding a Preference allows the user to change the conference associated with the team in case the team changes conferences before the skin is updated. These Preferences control the default conference that is loaded when the user switches to Standings view and are used when retrieving the team record for the dock. The user may view other conferences by using the context menu "Jump to conference" option or the next/previous buttons when in Standings view.
  • Fixed a bug with showing the team record in the dock
  • The logo is now resizable. Why, you ask? Because I like things to be customizable. And my monitors do not all have the same resolution.
  • Fixed a bug with the skin and the application of a new image to the schedule/standings button
  • Added tooltips to the next/previous buttons since their function (e.g. cycling through months or years) changes based on view/sport
  • Modified "No data returned" and "Unable to contact website" messages to include month name for monthly sports, such as basketball. Since the month is not included in the title line (because, in my opinion, that would make the title too long), I was getting confused when no data was returned.
  • Changes concerning the "import skin" functionality: added better error handling; also made some changes as a work-around for a bug in the "extension" attribute for the file "selector" form field/preference in Yahoo! Widgets 4.0
  • Minor change to handle an element in the skin XML file that I had previously been ignoring
  • Tidied up wording and case for the context menu items
  • When "show title" is unchecked, the previous/next team/conference buttons are now made invisible at the same time the title text is made invisible
  • Fixed a bug that caused the title to be aligned incorrectly if the following occurred in this order: (1) "show title in row" is checked, (2) "title alignment in row" is set to "right" or "center", (3) a column is hidden or shown via the "hide column" or "show all columns" context menu items (not the related Preferences), and (3) "show title in row" is unchecked
  • Made the transition smoother (visually) when switching between schedule and standings view and when changing conferences in standings view
  • Optimized image sizes and modified next and previous sport buttons to colorize properly on both Windows and Mac
2.1 2007-06-12
  • Updated to work with "Yahoo! Widgets 4"
  • Added the ability to view conference standings for all conferences using previous/next buttons
  • Added the ability to show/hide columns from the context menu. The context menu is invoked by right-clicking (Windows) or CTRL-clicking (Mac) on the widget.
  • Improved the resize algorithm. The widget has always resized itself based on the size of the font chosen for the main text of the table. However, now the buttons resize as well and the table grid resizes itself more properly :-) To make the widget as small as possible, choose a font size of 8 from the Preferences.
  • Made the widget skinnable.
  • Reorganized the context menu. The context menu is invoked by right-clicking (Windows) or CTRL-clicking (Mac) on the widget.
  • Made the "View Readme" and "View License" window fancier
  • Added more shadowing options for the text. These are now on the "Fonts" page in the Preferences
  • Fixed some bugs with importing skins

    • Baseball
    • Men's Basketball
    • Women's Basketball
    • Men's Cross Country
    • Women's Cross Country
    • Men's Golf
    • Women's Golf

    • Women's Tennis
    • Men's Track & Field
    • Women's Track & Field
    • Volleyball
  • Added time zones for Alaska and Hawaii
  • Modified the widget so that it tries to refresh at least once every 24 hours
  • Modified the widget so that it tries to refresh when it wakes from sleep
  • Added BCS rankings (altho now it is a bit too late)
  • Cleaned up the context menu items
  • Changed all "fetch" to "fetchAsync" to improve performance
  • Added better handling if the widget tries to refresh and there is no internet connection or it can't contact the website
  • Added a refresh button so the user doesn't have to go through the context menu
  • Default "display month" to current month when widget loads
  • Added "Export Default Skin" (a submenu of "Skin Management") to the context menu to assist people with creating their own skins
1.0.6 2005-10-30
  • Fixed a bug where the row was sized incorrectly if opponent was blank
1.0.5 2005-10-12
  • Modified the plus/minus to appear when the mouse rolls into the widget and disappear when the mouse rolls out in addition to on gain/lost focus (kept both because of issues on my mac)
  • Added a "check for newer version" feature to the Preferences window (to check for newer version on startup) and the context menu (to check for newer version now)
  • Added fading to the plus, minus, previous, and next buttons/images
  • Added better error handling so that the widget won't crash and burn if no data is returned
  • Added ability to toggle between conference standings and schedule (inspired by Marc Oburg's work on the Clemson football widget)
1.0.4 2005-10-07
  • Added ability to position the logo at any corner of the schedule (in case you want to align the widget against the edge of the screen)
  • Added ability to select time zone. The time zone feature only works for U.S. locations, but since I doubt people outside the US will run a football widget that shows US TV stations, I have no plans to expand this functionality.
  • Added next and previous buttons. These buttons will cycle through the years (2002- present) available on ESPN. These buttons appear in the lower left corner of the widget if the logo isn't in the lower left corner. If the logo is positioned in the lower left corner, then these buttons appear in the lower right corner. These buttons are hidden until the mouse rolls over the widget, so if you're wondering where they are, move your mouse over the schedule and look in the lower left (or right, depending on your logo location) of the widget.
  • Added a "status" label to indicate when it is retrieving data
1.0.3 2005-09-26
  • Fixed a typo in the readme
  • Added ability to display our rank (AP and USA today)
  • Switched the license to Creative Commons since someone reused my code and didn't give me credit
  • Modified the plus and minus graphics since they were difficult (for me anyway) to click
1.0.2 2005-09-23
  • Modified so that the user can choose to have the schedule refresh when the widget is maximized from the logo
  • Rearranged the layout of the Preferences (added a Columns group)
  • RAdded more error checking on the Year in the Preferences
  • Added a font size of 8 as an option for all font sizes (in case people want things tiny)
1.0.1 2005-09-11
  • Cleaned up the code
  • Improved layout and graphics. Altho no one else may notice.
  • I have a high resolution (1400 x 1050), and I realized with great horror that I had too many preferences for a 1024 x 768 resolution (which is probably far more common). I eliminated some preferences so that everything would fit.
  • Fixed some typos/general errors on the Preferences window.
1.0 2005-09-04
