Anyone following this blog will know that for the last couple of months I’ve been busy working away on re-writing AD Tidy from scratch – and I’m pleased to announce that it is getting very close to being finished, so I have now released a public BETA version.
The BETA can be downloaded here: http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/ADTidy/ADTidyBETAInstaller.zip
EDIT: The official version has now been released, see here for details: http://blog.cjwdev.co.uk/2013/03/29/ad-tidy-2-0-released
Almost everything that will be in the final version is fully functional in the BETA, with the exception of the Automated Rules feature (which requires a server side service to process the rules, and therefore requires even more performance testing before I release it in any form). There will however be some minor improvements between this version and the first official release, and of course if anyone has any good suggestions from the BETA then I will try and get them included in the final version.
Here’s a few screenshots of the program in action:
As mentioned above, this version has been completely re-written from scratch and hopefully the huge amount of time and effort I have put into it will mean it is even more useful than the original version. There are too many differences and improvements to list but to give some idea of the scale of the difference – the old version was roughly 3000 lines of code, and this new version is 10,000 in its current state (that’s not including the server side components that I’m still working on).
So please feel free to download the BETA and use the Send Feedback button to send any comments you have (good or bad). I’m looking forward to seeing what people think of it and how well it works for them.
I’ll have another blog post up next week with an official release date for the finished version and pricing details for the standard edition etc
