Inappropriate checkin comment (new WLA release)

Release notes:
  • Make checking for updates optional (see configuration dialog)
  • Really fix bug where column visibilities would randomly reset to defaults (show all)
The inappropriate check in comment:

$ bzr log | grep FRIGGIN

A few days back, I noticed that if I cycled through my filters, occasionally, the column visibilities would be reset. That meant that all the fields I *didn't* care about would start showing up in the main window. I found it annoying but it did not happen too often so I filed a JIRA and continued working on other features.

I don't know what it was, but it started happening more and more often this week while I was using WLA. This was the most annoying bug in any piece of software ever written. And I wrote it! I could not rest until I fixed it. I made many false starts and even thought I fixed it at some point. I stared at the code for hours.

Finally, late last night I found the magic 8 lines needed to make it work.

So I am making a new release.

If you have had a problem with your column visibilities being reset, I strongly suggest you download this release.
