  • Adjustments made to comply with recent releases of some Linux distributions.
  • Additional adjustments made to the XML compliancy changes.
  • Adjustments made to collecting 'Duration Text' value.
  • Changes to Installation Procedures and Documentation.

    The instructions for the installation of Perl modules and supporting programs have been changed to use less CPAN installs and make more use of available distribution packages (i.e. DEB files and RPM files).

    This should simplify the install process and reduce the problem of module dependency issues.

    If CPAN modules are not installing for you..

    It has come to our attention that the latest release of Linux Mint 16 - Cinnamon version (and possibly others) installs without some critical 'C' libraries necessary for the compilation and installation of the CPAN modules.

    To fix this you may need to install 'libc6-dev' and 'libexpat1-dev' before installing the CPAN modules.
    You can do this using the 'Synaptic Package Manager' or run the commands ..

    'sudo apt-get install libc6-dev'
    'sudo apt-get install libexpat1-dev'

    .. from the command line (i.e. Terminal session).

    Updated Versions Available:
    GUI 1.28

    Switch-over to version 3 of the 'themoviedb.org' API - (The previous version has been discontinued).

  • The newer API provides better data and image collection and contains more data elements.
  • The API also provides better language matching and provides a way to indentify language-specific movie cover images.
  • NOTE: These versions require an extra CPAN module, to be loaded. i.e. 'JSON::Parse' (See the module-check programs included in the program bundle.)

    Important! Previous versions will no longer work on processing Movies

    The cause... 'theMovieDB.org' web site which is accessed to get Movie Posters and data, has changed the method of accessing the data.

    A new release of SheetMaker is being developed with several upgrades and includes this change but is not ready for release yet.

    In the meantime an interim version will be made available over the next day or two that will get the Movies working again.
