We finally made it, and after much testing and debugging, we've released our latest version of stashBox. Due to a number of feature enhancements, it will be a required upgrade for all of our users (don't worry, it should finish real quick).
So What's New?
1. Flip Video Support
I jumped the gun last week, but our Flip Video Support is now live! stashBox will copy your Flip Video files over onto your computer, clearing up the space left behind on your flip! Now you can quickly and easily trim your clip starts & ends, create your movie(s) and share the results with family and friends. There is simply nothing easier or faster to manage and share your Flip Video files.
Have a flip video? Share your opinions about it with us, and how you've used this sweet new toy. Don't know what a Flip Video is? Read this, and then go out and buy one - You'll be glad you did!
2. We've added a logo!
OK, it's really a small thing, but will probably be the first thing you notice - we've added a logo to our stashBox application. You will notice it showing up in a number of places in addition to our website, giving you a number of possible ways in which you can access your stash. These include your desktop, your startbar, your Programs menu (we're under stashSpace), and from the launch menu that comes up after plugging your digital video camera into your firewire port.
3. Drive & File Management Options
If you are running out of drive space on your C: drive, you can now create a new destination for your content and use a secondary drive on your computer. You just want to make sure that the new drive will usually be hooked up to your computer, as you will need it to watch or stash any of your videos.
As part of this change, we've also renamed the master folder which holds all of your content. It is now found on your C: drive and is called "myStash".
4. Improved stashBox Installation Process
We have greatly simplified our installation process, and removed many of the barriers surrounding the install of a web-based application. You will now be able to open your stash from various locations on your desktop, or through our website - you choose!
5. Windows Vista and FireFox support
Not necessarily new news here, but our new installation process makes me comfortable stating "We are Windows Vista and FireFox compatible". Our Vista users will need to follow a somewhat detailed installation process to get going, but once we're installed, watch out -- stashBox works like a dream! Firefox users will need to run the stashBox in our external application, but will be able to launch it right from your MyAccount page to get started!
Of course, we've also done a lot of behind-the-scene improvements and bug fixes to help increase speed and usability of the application -- too many to mention as usual.
We hope you enjoy all these enhancements as much as we do. Please let us know what you think!
