"Where is v1.4?"
I'd like to thank everyone
for their patience and continued patronage. It's
been 3 years since Pocket Diary's last release and people have
expressed concern, sending e-mails of encouragement, and
e-mails in total anger. Let me take this opportunity to
formarlly acknowledge, Pocket Diary is still alive.
Significant work was made (some time ago) for the
development cycle of the next version. (Version 1.4)
Though because of existing circumstances, releasing the next
version has become an obvious challenge.
A couple of factors play a role in this dilemma.
Despite these issues, effort is still being placed into
releasing v1.4. (Believe it or not)
To help explain the problem, Arainia
is not a huge company. (Just the opposite)
Pocket Diary is distributed as Shareware, therefore,
you should not expect to receive the
"high quality support" that you may have come to depend on
from software you purchase in a large retail store.
It is our mission (and goal)
to attempt and deliver this service to you, but understand, no
promises have been made in the performance,
support, or release dates for this software. Traditionally,
this is what you will come to find with most programs
that are distributed as Shareware.
Update posted for Palm OS version!
An updated version of the Palm OS version of Pocket Diary has been posted in the download area.

Please note: this is *not* the PocketPC version, and unfortunately, Pocket Diary v1.4 has not been released yet either. (But it *will* eventually be released)
The updated Palm OS version fixes the "MemoryMgr.c,line:4365" error that some people were getting when clicking the "Write" button.
To install this version, you must delete the old "pdiary.prc" program off your handheld first. (If you haven't already done so) Schedule the new "pdiary.prc" file to be uploaded on your next HotSync using Instapp.exe.
