v1.4-beta1 with support for csv/xls/xlsx/ods import and export is available

I just released v1.4-beta1 with the following highlights:

  • support for CSV/XLS/XLSX/ODS import and export for bulk additions and bulk updates of markers
  • Norwegian (Bokmål) translation thanks to Inge Tang, http://drommemila.no
  • lots of other optimizations and bugfixes

Screenshots on the new import/export feature, which can be accessed through the the new menu entry “Import/Export”:

Documentation and tutorials will follow till v1.4 final release. I kindly ask you to test this beta release as thoroughly as possible – especially by using special chars!

If there are no more blocker bugs found in this release, v1.4 final (with more detailled release notes) will be released on November 17th.
