Pathway 1.0

As promised, here’s Pathway 1.0. It includes some minor fixes:

- Fixed a bug where Pathway wouldn’t save page text for regular web pages.
- Fixed a bug where Pathway would order collections incorrectly after renaming or removing them.
- Fixed a bug where the page collection view would not immediately update after dragging or removing collections.

And one translation (others are coming):

Italian (thanks, Gabriele Sbaiz!)

Download it (as usual) here.

NOTE: Due to many underlying changes, I regret to say that Pathway 1.0 is not compatible with documents created in version 0.6.1 or earlier. Please contact me if you’d like a copy of 0.6.1 to still be able to open these files. this!

    This is great stuff – I hadn’t realised there had been an update. That’s quite some update.

    Donation in the works.

    Thanks for your support, everyone!

    aashish13: I’m playing with some ideas…again, based on a workflow that is non-existent on the Mac platform as far as I’ve researched. You’ll hear more in the future…
    But my main focus is still on keeping Pathway up to date and as fluid as possible, while implementing useful requests I get.

    Great job on the Apple Award! You are linked from Macworld! (So I guess you could expect more traffic as the day goes on and people see the article) Anyways, very nice app, no wonder it won an award.

    I am all over this app! Awesome! I am blogging about this app and putting it on my images for the laptops next year. This is SWEET! Making visual connections for students, and making is easy… for special ed students this is could be an extremely powerful tool! Great work, keep it up.

    Congraturation on award! I just downloaded Pathway 1.0.
    And if you do not mind, would you tell me which tech(framework or library?) you are using to create visual UI(I mean, circles and lines like visual map)?

    [...] Pathway was the runner up. It seems to be pretty cool. It maps your travels through Wikipedia. I find Marco Polo more useful in general, but I know that there are those Wikipedia addicts out there that like to read articles all the time. I think they’d like this program and find it more useful than me. It has a similar interface to Vienna, one sidebar and two resizable sections in the window. I like it, but I don’t think I’ll use it, I don’t use Wikipedia that much. [...]

    Again, thanks for your compliments :)
    I’m pleased to hear it’s found a good use in the education field.

    Tuna, the graph visualization is custom drawing code based on AppKit (i.e., high level)Quartz calls. It is really just a bit of tweaking parameters to get it to look as it does now…The model behind it consists of an object graph of nodes and arcs, which is the most intuitive way I suppose.

    Can you say right at the top of this page what ‘pathway’ does. I ordinary simple language.
    Like zillions of computer product you assume that we all know what you are on about. We don’t.
    Please do a ‘Pathway for dummies’ explanation.
    Does making wikipedia a no brainer mean you now need no brain to use it or this is so much better than wpedia so you would have no brain to be stupid enough to use it? What does pathway actually do?

    Chrimi -

    I thought I was clear on its purpose.
    - There’s a short description on the About page
    - You can check out screenshots of the app in action
    - You can try it for yourself. Pathway is free and, I hope and believe, very straightforward to use.

    “making something a no-brainer” generally means simplifying that something. In this case, Pathway simplifies browsing wikipedia by presenting a graphical browser history to the user.
