Public Talks 23.0.1 is now available

I am pleased to announce that there is a new version of Public Talks now available.


Newsletter Subscriptions — Update

I want to say thank you to all of you who have taken the time to update your subscription settings. Several users decided to unsubscribe due to changing circumstances. And I have manually deleted over 200 user accounts that have been inactive over the last few years. There are still a sizeable number of user accounts to review though.
I think I now know what is happening … when a user subscribes to the newsletter they may forget to select the newsletter categories and / or GDPR setting. As a result they end up subscribing but don’t receive any newsletters.

What’s New

An issue was brought to my attention about the Add / Modify Talks window displaying a popup error message:

MFC internal error: unable to load error string from resource.

Popup error message

This error message was only displayed if you did not have any of your public talk titles marked as excluded. A few outlines are out of circulation at the moment so I did not anticipate or test for this scenario. I have now improved the software to handle this situation. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

We will be dropping support for these operating systems with the next release of this software. So version 23.0.1 will be the last version that can be installed on these operating systems.
