It's been a busy week for Oramind, mainly since iOS 5.0 broke many features of iGreekNews. So after the initial bug fix update for iGreekNews HD and iGreekNews a number of new issues came up.
The latest versions of iGreekNews (1.6.1 for the iPad and 1.9.1 for the iPhone) bring a number of enhancements to the fluidity and the stability of the application. First of all, the parser whould be faster and more reliable now. So does the downloading procedure. Which means that you will surely experience faster download times.
Most importantly, the bug with the "bad urls" was fixed completely. This is a very serious fix. I cannot stress this enough. The "bad url" sign was created because at some point under very specific situations the local cache of iGreekNews became corrupt. A cache clean would get you rid of the issue, which is what I replied to users requesting help about this, but I believe that now you can say goodbye to this problem once and for all.
iGreekNews for the iPhone also implements services. It's a small feature, that intends to be bigger in days to come.
Last but not least... if you experience caching problems with iGreekNews, please redownload the application You won't be charged for redownloading. Much code has changed inside the application, and sometimes, a reinstall is needed.

After updating to version 1.5.3, users if iGreekNews HD with iOS 5 installed are unable to view the front pages, and have experienced crashes, lockups, screens that wouldn't do away when pressing the back button, and many other problems.
We are aware of all these issues, and we have already submitted a buf fix release to Apple. In a few days, version 1.5.4 will solve all incompatibilities with iOS 5.
Thank you for your understanding.

Unilib beta 0.5 is now released. This update is important, as it fixes the broken update system of the previews versions, and the bug where the application would become unresponsive with large libraries.
You will need to redownload the application from the website in order to restore the broken update system. After that you will be able to update Unilib from withing the application without closing it.
You can download the newest version of the application here.

Thank you all for your interest in this beta. The initial release had 800 downloads, before people started sending me mails about problems that arose while using it. Remember, this is still a beta, and the reason I am releasing it as a beta before uploading to the Mac App Store is because I knew that due to the complexity of UNIX calls that produce large amounts of output bytes on OS X, and due to NSFileHandle parsing and changing library headers with plain C calls (as it happens now on Unilib), I would end up having problems.
It seems there were some problems with the original release, as I hadn't taken into account the different processor architectures for each one using OS X. For starters, allow me to say that I'm sorry for any problems that you may have encountered, but, hey... That's why the word 'beta' exists, and that's why I mentioned earlier that there will certainly be problems with this release. The new beta, fixes many problems, and will also fix the broken update system, so you will have to download it again from this server in order to properly update it using the auto-update feature in the future.
Here is some explanation about the problems that appeared in the initial release:
