Tomdroid 0.7.3 "Almost there!" released!

Written for Tomdroid by Stefan Hammer on 2013-10-24

I have the pleasure to announce the next and hopefully last release of our beta series. It was hard getting all release-critical bugs fixed as new ones did not stop to appear. This version will be called 0.7.3 "Almost there!" and fixes more than 35 bugs, including 10 critical/high ones and many enhancements. The biggest change probably was the rewrite of the XML parser to not loose any bullet-list notes again. This was done during the GNOMEdotNet Hackfest 2013 in Vienna (, for which I want to thank David Nielsen for organising it, Timo Dörr for his great support and explanations, and of course our awesome sponsors! Timo Dörr is also the guy who wrote our new sync server "Rainy" ( which includes server-side encryption, a web-interface and all kinds of database options since the Google Summer of Code 2013.

This version is not a *stable* play store release yet as we would like to get one more round of testing done in our community. However, you can always subscribe to our beta releases published at Google Play following these steps:
