GMinder is now hosted on Google Code.
Mike has taken the initiative to upload the code, make some improvements, and prepare a new release. You can download version 1.3.1 now.
I no longer maintain GMinder, so please consider Mike the new lead developer. He has ideas for further improvements. Thanks for volunteering, Mike!
Several users noticed that GMinder did not correctly display dates and times on their computers. This is because GMinder did not take into account various international time formats. New version 1.2.10 now has better support for such formats, including 24 hour formats. Note that GMinder will now use your regional settings in Windows to format the time.
Additionally, there is a new “About GMinder” window that displays the version of GMinder that you are using, accessible from the system tray.
As always, thank you for your suggestions and feedback!
GMinder trys to ping www.google.com prior to downloading events. If ECHO is disabled on your network (possibly blocked by your admin), then events will not be downloaded even if your calendars can be downloaded. With GMinder v1.2.8, an option has been added to enable/disable the connectivity test. To skip the ping, go into Options and uncheck “Test connectivity before downloading events”.
EDIT: Version 1.2.8 used some faulty logic when deciding if it should ping. It has been quickly replaced by 1.2.9. I apologize for the mistake, please download the new version.
I released a new version (1.2.7) of GMinder today, with the following improvements:
The new Quick Add feature
I recommend installing this new version, especially if a previous version had given you trouble.
Thank you for all your suggestions and feedback!
