Chordious 2.2 is now available! It’s the first major update over the previous 2.0 series.
Last year I started work on the Chordious 2.1 preview, but I got caught up in other projects, and so development kind of stalled for a while. Looking at what I’d done, and what I’d planned to do, I decided I might as well push an official 2.2 release while I regroup and plan for the future.
The biggest functional additions are to allow searching for “partial” chords in the Chord Finder (searching for chords missing notes), and the ability to restrict scales in the Scale Finder (respecting the octave of the scale).
The biggest UI changes are in converting all of the numeric text boxes to have up/down arrows, and now color combo boxes have nice RGB color pickers.
Here’s the full change list for those upgrading from 2.0.13 to 2.2:
- Chord Finder can now find “partial” chords
- Added “Strict Intervals” option for Scale Finder
- Diagram export can now be interrupted, and dialog can optionally close afterward
- Upgraded numeric inputs from text boxes to numeric spinners
- Upgraded color inputs from combo boxes to color pickers
- Fixed issue with non-deterministic style summary text
- Extended clickable area for editing fret labels
- Fixed layout inconsistencies with visibility of elements with text
- Fixed issues with allowing one-string instruments
- Fixed update check to always suggest updates to higher official versions
- Fixed issue with diagram text scaling on high DPI screens
Update to the latest version of Chordious today, and keep the feedback coming!
