./misc/JBidwatcher, Software for eBay sniping, bidding and monitoring

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.1.5, Package name: JBidwatcher-2.1.5, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

A Java-based application allowing you to monitor auctions you're
not part of, submit bids, snipe (bid at the last moment), and
otherwise track your auction-site experience. It includes adult-auction
management, MANY currencies (pound, dollar (US, Canada, Australian,
and New Taiwanese) and euro, presently), drag-and-drop of auction
URLs, an original, unique and powerful 'multisniping' feature, a
relatively nice UI, and is known to work cleanly under Linux,
Windows, Solaris, and MacOSX from the same binary.

all: migrate homepages from http to https

pkglint -r --network --only "migrate"

As a side-effect of migrating the homepages, pkglint also fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines. These and the new homepages have been
checked manually.

Update to 2.1.5:

eBay has been pretty active lately; this most recent breakage was
just of non-US non-PayPal listings. I took the opportunity to
address a few minor issues, while I'm looking into some longer-term
problems. Best of luck with your auctions!

Fixes

    * The non-US non-PayPal item issue
    * 'Post to: ' in location fields
    * Failure to read feedback scores

Improvements

    * Some attempts to improve data consistency
    * Completed auction loading and 'lost' auction recovery don't
    block each other
    * Better messaging around the browse-to site and My JBidwatcher
    configurations
    * Show the revision number on Windows and Linux

Update to 2.1.4.1:

eBay made some surprising changes over the last week or so, removing the end \ 
date from a lot of their auction and fixed price listings. I had to scramble a \ 
little, but I came up with a way to handle it in the general case. Fixed price \ 
items now may show up as ‘n/a’ as their end date, because it’s \ 
just not visible to JBidwatcher. Other than that there’s a few minor fixes, \ 
improving the UI in little ways, and continuing to try and improve speed. Thanks \ 
for your support, and best of luck with your auctions!

Changes

    * Fix breakage due to eBay removing the end-date from the title
    on many listings
    * Try to provide a safety-net for a potential sniping failure bug
    * Get eBay pages as compressed data for faster updating
    * Paste and Add Auction should add to the currently displayed tab/category
    * Allow Basic Authentication lines longer than 80 characters
    for My JBidwatcher support
    * Improve the look of JBidwatcher’s minimized window under Mac OS X

Update to 2.1.3:

Fixed issues

    * All ‘null (FP)’ problems should be resolved
    * Post-end bid-counts should be correct again
    * eBay is testing a new ‘confirm’ page which broke sniping.
    * Update-All works again, and is reasonably efficient
    * Substantial performance tuning
