Version 1.3 of MIME Browser, my free EML message viewer written in JavaFX, is now available for download. The one big change is the upgrade to Java SE 8 with JavaFX 8 whose new Modena theme is fashionably flat and gray, as you can see in the screenshot below. (I made the blue hyperlinks a bit darker because I found the very light default color hard to read.)
There were also a few minor bugfixes, two of them courtesy of the updated
WebView in JavaFX 8.
- Zooming now scales the entire HTML view, including images and spacing, not just text.
- The HTML view’s vertical scrollbar now scales correctly in high DPI mode on Windows.
- Days of month in the directory view now correctly start at one rather than zero. (Sorry!)
There was one annoying regression concerning developers. I had to remove UML diagrams from the Javadoc class reference because yWorks UML Doclet is incompatible with Java SE 8. Apparently the tool uses some internal
com.sun.* classes that have changed. I hope it will get updated soon.
2014-04-14: Uploaded version 1.3.1 with a tentative fix for a nasty bug where file modification dates could get altered – see the WhatsNew file for details.
