Codename: Stokrotka - next test version of 1.7.0, this time without bug ;-)

My fault, last time I didn't attached one important file to distributed OXT file. This missing file was activtation.jar, which is shipped with Java 6, but isn't with Java 5.

I probably should find it during tests, but my laptop is rather slow, so I prefer not to make anything what will take a lot time [so restarting OpenOffice.org and so on ;-)].

What means "stokrotka"?
It is Polish name for daisy, codename is to official name for my method to avoid mixing files.

MacOS:
It should be able to upload files [without conversion from unsupported format to supported by Google Docs], and to download files, I made also changes to open those downloaded files, but I wasn't yet able to test it.

Have fun!
Download [I'm waiting for feedback]

Early access version of OOo2GD 1.7.0 with partial MacOS support

I decided to publish very early version of OOo2GD 1.7.0.
Differences to previous versions are:
  • compiled for Java 1.5, thanks to this it may work on MacOS [read more below]
  • changed method of displaying message windows [users of Windows, and probably also Linux and Solaris shouldn't notice any difference]
  • changed localization of gdocs.update.xml file [was http://przemelek.googlepages.com/gdcos.update.xml, will be http://www.przemelek.pl/gdocs.update.xml]
  • Small changes in Bulgarian translation



MacOS support:
This is tricky one ;-)
Tests shows that on some systems uploading works [but as I suppose without automatic conversion after prompt that conversion is needed]. Downloading works, but it may have some problems with opening downloaded file in OO.org.
You may ask why I decided to publish this version if it doesn't work.
Answer is easy: I didn't have Mac [and looking on behavior of Apple Java I'm happy with this ;-)] so I'm not able to test it myself. I hope Mac owners will try how it works and will share with comments how it worked [or not ;-)]

Download
New Download [this version works on Java 5 :-)] [and pleas give me feedback how it works :-)]
