Terian ID Creator – Public Release Done!

After slightly over 3 years since the original development project was created, I’m pleased to announce the public release of Terian ID Creator v1.01.

Similarly to Terian Image Capture Pro, a 30 day trial is available for Terian ID Creator. An installation guide that outlines the installation procedure and requirements is also available.

Brief Development History:

A more detailed history of development changes is available in the About Dialog within the application, however here is a brief list of some of the milestones achieved during development…

So as you can see, a little over 3 years in development from starting point to public release point.

What’s Next:

Well there are a number of additional features I plan to add in the future, however in the interim I will be taking a brief rest for a couple weeks which will hopefully allow me to tidy up a couple other projects that have been sidelined while completing ID Creator.


Terian ID Creator – Almost there

A quick (slightly late) update….

Good news, I compiled v1.0 of Terian ID Creator on 17/Jun/2014, however it was not without a couple hurdles…

Packaging Woes:

Unfortunately compiling the application is only one part of the distribution puzzle, the next step was to figure out how I was going to package the application and make it simple enough for users to download and install. During the packaging testing stage I discovered a couple hurdles and a couple minor bugs that I had to overcome. My initial plan for distribution wasn’t compatible across all platforms supported, so I had to quickly rethink that.

I briefly toyed with the idea of simply dropping support for the platforms I was having issues with, but instead opted to find a method that would support my original intended list of supported platforms.

On 26/Jun/2014 I compiled v1.01 of Terian ID Creator ready for packaging, and finally built the installer package on 02/Jul/2014, so we are slowly making progress.

Documentation Woes:

Once the installation package was finalised It became evident during testing that some form of installation guide would be required, so I have spent the past couple days preparing a guide to briefly outline the steps required to install Terian ID Creator.

This also produced a couple of challenges, especially when Word and Acrobat didn’t want to co-operate in regards to Text hiding behind graphics and vice-versa in some places. After a small bit of arm-wrestling I succeeded in getting a ‘Quick’ 25 page Installation Guide prepared (granted most of it is screen shots), so at least users should have a good idea of how to install the application and what the requirements are.

Next Step, WebSite Update:

I’m currently working on a website update to include additional information and download links for the Terian ID Creator 30 Day Trial, so hope to have that go live within the next week. Once this step is completed then it will be time for celebration as everything will officially be in the wild.
