Just updated PandaBear to version 0.53. This version adds a feature many of you have requested. The ability to select another drop zone image. In this first version of this new feature we have added two more images on top of the default panda head.
Just weeks after the research & development labs at SNAPPS released PandaBear, we are introducing Flippr (Beta) for Lotus Quickr services for Domino.
Where PandaBear is aimed at end users for uploading, downloading and locating files from/to your Quickr server, Flippr is aimed at administrators. The application makes everyday Quickr admin tasks a breeze. Some of the functions that you can accomplish with Flippr are:
- Lock and unlock places
- Create and remove places
- Archive places
- Add persons and groups to places
- Rename person and groups in places
Flippr is using a friendly interface including type ahead for selecting places, people and/or groups from the server or LDAP directory. It also features three intuitive screens.
- On the Commands screen, you get tree-style navigation of the most common QPTool commands.
- On the XML screen you create your own XML to upload to the server. For the advanced cases where you want to do send in many commands at the same time.
- On the Settings screen, set up your connection to server(s), check for updated versions and check the latest release notes.
Designed on the Adobe Air framework, Flippr runs on Windows, Mac or Linux using the same application code. Just as PandaBear, Flippr features automatic check for newer version and will download and install it with a one click operation.
Flippr is free during beta, and is not time-locked or disabled in any way. Post-beta plans are still under consideration.
PandaBear (Beta) is the code name for a desktop application of the research & development labs at SNAPPS, the company that also brings you QuickrTemplates.com. Use PandaBear for uploading, downloading and locating files stored in Lotus Quickr 8.1+.
Designed on the Adobe Air framework, PandaBear runs on Windows, Mac or Linux using the same application code.
Use cases for PandaBear include:
- Quickr places designed primarily for file sharing
- Organizations with Mac and/or Linux desktops
- Transient users of Quickr, who just need access to files
- Archiving folders, rooms, or even entire places full of files
- Your unique use case!
PandaBear features three intuitive screens.
On the Download screen, you get tree-style navigation of servers, places, rooms, folders, and files. Highlight a file, folder, room or place, and you can download the file contents to your machine. Double-click a folder and you have a temporary “drop zone” for uploading files. Just drag and drop files or folders over the drop zone and they’re uplaoded to your Quickr place.
On the Favorites screen, set up a list of places where you will commonly upload files, then double-click them to open the drop zone(s).
On the Settings screen, set up your connection to server(s).
PandaBear is free during beta, and is not time-locked or disabled in any way. Post-beta plans are still under consideration but will include a free version with all the capabilities of the beta version.
From Rob Novak’s blog:
The SNAPPS Quickr Templates at QuickrTemplates.com have been updated with various fixes and a new feature I’ll describe here. But first, a note on versions.
We elected to match version numbers with Quickr when 8.1 shipped, so 90 days ago when they were posted, our versions revved to 8.1. Now we also have fixes to the templates unrelated to the Quickr version number or hotfix level, so have taken our versioning out two decimal points – the new version is 188.8.131.52. If we have another release before IBM revs to 8.1.1 (or whatever’s next), our version will be 184.108.40.206. Clear? Good.
