Note: This is the new thread for EVEMon due to change in lead dev.

Good evening!

As EVEMon has sadly not been updated for some time, I have taken on the mantle of Lead Developer in order to continue maintaining and improving EVEMon. I have been in touch with Desmont, who produced EVEMon for 7 years, and hope to follow in his and Blitz' footsteps to ensure that EVEMon is a valuable tool for members of the EVE Community to use.

I come from a background as an EVE Player, on and off, since 2004, as a hobbyist software developer for many years and a professional, Microsoft certified developer in my day-job. As a result, I'm reasonably sure that I can continue the good work that has been started before me, and of course, being an open-source project, I'm happy to take other people along for the ride

What can you expect from me?

  • I hope to provide releases of EVEMon at least every other month.
  • I will aim to resolve all bugs raised against a release in the next release.
  • I promise that, to the best of my ability, bugs raised will definitely be fixed within two releases
  • I plan to engage in frequent discussion with the EVE Community to ensure that EVEMon remains a tool for the community
  • I will maintain a healthy repsect for anyone that wants to contribute to the project, and will aim to help and support them where I can


What I'm currently working on

  • Getting familiar with the EVEMon codebase, and that of the associated tools
  • Updating the data files used by EVEMon to the latest version of the EVE Static Data export
  • Resolving a small number of known issues that cause EVEMon to unexpectedly crash


How you can help me

  • Be patient! I do this for free, in my spare time.
  • If you're submitting a bug report, please provide as much relevant detail as is possible. 'EVEMon crashes' is not as helpful as 'EVEMon crashes when I add Amarr Frigate 5 to a skill plan'
  • Keep feature requests reasonable. 'I want EVEMon to tell me what to train' is unreasonable. 'Could EVEMon have different themes to support high contrast'
  • Consider making donations of ISK. Unfortunately, I enjoy PVP and PVP costs money. The less time I spend having to run Incursions, the more time I can develop sweet EVEMon goodness!


The latest version is: 3.0.3 (Download | Changes)
The official website for EVEMon is: https://evemondevteam.github.io/evemon/ .

Latest Version - v3.0.3
====

New Features

* Unfortunately, no new features are provided in this release.

Bug Fixes

* Fixed a bug wich caused exceptions to be thrown in the skill planner when no plan was loaded
* Fixed a bug which caused issues parsing the details of a users wallet following trades in Citadels
* Fixed a bug where the EVEMon installer was unable to see more recent versions of the .NET Framework
* Fixed a bug where scrolling through the skill queue would occasionally throw a 'System.DivideByZero' exception

Enhancements

* EVEMon has been brought up-to-date with the latest version of the EVE SDE.

Misc
* An issue where the pre-requisites of the Advanced Weapon Upgrades were listed incorrectly is resolved by updating the SDE

Knowing this is a volunteer project it would be nice however if Evemon didn't spam updates onto my computer about PI etc 5+ times for each account. Major reason I had to uninstall it 6-9 months ago.

TL;DR
  • Spam to a minimal

  • And it would be cool for different UI layouts for Ultra Wide Monitors like 2560x1080

  • This, even if you change the setting to "notify once" it doesn't completely eliminate the spam (it goes from like 1 in 5 mins to 1 per hour or so)

    Can you confirm that one of the unexpected crash issues is contracts in citadels?

    Hey,
    Thanks for picking this up. I was actually looking at the source code the other day. I noticed the project has both bitbucket and github pages. Why is that?

    I don't mind lending a hand here and there if you'll be taking pull requests.

    In time - neither of these are what I consider to be bugs and so I'll get round to them at some point in the future. I agree that any kind of application spam is inconvenient and that some of the toast notifications from EVEMon (yes, genuine technical term) can be a bit tiresome. I'll look into it in time.

    Hello! I can't, actually, It's not mentioned in the issues tracker in GitHub and it's not something I've come across myself, typically because I don't do much with contracts in EVE. If you can regularly reproduce the fault, feel free to raise an issue in GH.

    Hello! I'n not actually 100% sure - I think the intention is that the community contributes to one and the other controls releases. I'll speak with Desmont and figure out why both exist. You're more than welcome to contribute with PRs, but please stick to using GH rather than Bitbucket.

    Hello! A titan, please, obviously. Several in fact.



    I think that's all of the questions covered for now. I'm doing some overtime for my day job this evening, but I'll be working on EVEMon tomorrow evening. I'm hoping for a mid-week release of a version including a small number of bug fixes and an up-to-date publish of the SDE, but as I said in my first post, please be patient and don't hold me to this.

    Thanks,

    Will your updates be automatically applied to the version of Evemon that I'm running, or will I need to download it again ?

    Hello,

    One of the areas I still need to get my head around is the automatic updates. I'm about 90% sure you'll be able to just auto-update but I'll confirm within the week.

    great news!

    There is a little annoying bug in my EVEMon right now - on some characters it doesnt show the Wallet Journal. It says "an error querying the Wallet Journal", and then there is nothing in the Wallet Journal tab.

    Obvious questions first, but does the API key you're using allow access to the wallet...?
