Thanks for the quick reply! It all makes sense now. Great software and keep up the good work!

Witnessed this software at a joint brew day yesterday. Numbers all matched up with what I had in Beersmith. There were less options, but it looks to be off to a great start.

This is a great program! I have found two problems. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with the latest QT. the problem I have found is when I try to arrange the brew-day mode instructions the program crashes and even sometimes it crashes when I click the Brew-day mode. Maybe I am missing something? This is the error I get:

mmap() failed: Cannot allocate memory
abort: audio_out.c:2292: _x_ao_new_port: Aborting.
Aborted

I have just now noticed that it also installs brewtarget in the Accessiories and in the Education locations (Two copies in each place).

rocketman, a couple features to be added to future versions:

- A tab to contain free-form notes would be absolutely wonderful
- being able to save and view brewday logs/results (maybe this is there and I missed it?)
- In some of the tabs, the columns are not spaced appropriately for options given. If I change the time from hrs to minutes in the hops tab, it doesn't seem to fit. Also probably don't need 3 decimal places of precision... The spacing issue also shows up when trying to change a hop addition to a dry hop. The pull-down isn't wide enough to even see my option unless I manually re-size the column first.

everything else is good so far! Good work!

Hm, strange error. I'll see if I can find out what it is.

For the notes, check the "extras" button in the toolbar. If that's not what you mean, let me know. The brewday logs and results are the next big thing I want to do. As for column spacing, I have been fighting with this issue, but seems like there's no good way to do auto-spacing with this Qt framework. If some Qt guru is reading this, let me know if there's a way I can get the columns to resize appropriately.

I had the same issues as Blindguardian and when the brewday mode was working, it was using a ton of CPU, otherwise fantastic program. Kudos for making something for us Linux users!

You can export your recipes from the old version and import them into the new one. Instead of exporting them one by one, you can do File->Export Database in the old version. This will create 3 files (database.xml, recipes.xml, and mashs.xml). Then in the new version, you can do File->Import Recipes and choose the recipes.xml file.
I don't see a 'File>Export Database' option in 1.2.1; when you choose 'File>Export Recipe' it only exports the current recipe. If you have the 3 files already, can you simply start 1.2.2 and import them? When you do 'File>Import Recipes, does it also update the database and/or mashs files?

I also kinda miss the big 'BrewTarget' logo above the beer image...

I'm hardly a Guru, but you may want to check out resizeColumnToContents

running version 1.2.2 on a MAC (10.4.1) the buttons to save or cancel (I assume) do not have any indication what the button is for. On the main window the three buttons on the bottom right are blank, the equipment editor window button next to the equipment dropdown is blank as well and the three on the bottom. In the fermentable Database window, the two buttons on the bottom left are OK but the two to the right are blank. Other windows have the same issue. Not sure if it's me.

thanks

Yeah, you can do that. When you import recipes, it will in fact add any new ingredients (with a distinct name) to the database.

Yup. That function tends not to work as you would expect, or at least not how I would expect.

Hm. Which version of Qt do you have installed? We switched to svg images in this release.
