01-19-2009 GradeL Documentation: Until recently, documentation for GradeL has taken a back seat to the actual writing of the program.

If you are interested in contributing, please email me.

Stay tuned...

05-16-2007 More bugs found and fixed! I have found several major bugs and fixed them. These include problems with importing data, opening saved GradeL files, and menu check marks. There will be a release soon to address these issues.

03-25-2007 GradeL 0.7.5 Released!. After quite a layoff, another version of GradeL has been released. This version fixes some issues and also adds some minor features. See the ChangeLog for details.

11-26-2006 Patch for GradeL 0.7.4. It figures that just after 0.7.4 is released, I discover yet another bug in the program. The program does not properly handle comments for dropped students. While GradeL does not crash, comment data for dropped students is not saved and therefore lost upon closing the program. Grade information is not lost. Download this patch: GClass.class. Follow the instructions from 11-17 below to re-compile and install.

11-25-2006 GradeL 0.7.4 released. This release corrects several bugs including the Add Assignment bug reported below. GradeL now supports student comments and export to Online Grades. Although the GradeL gradebook file format has changed, the program should still read data from the previous version. Please try this version out and report any bugs via email or the forum.

11-17-2006 Patch for 0.7.3 An unfortunate and critical bug has been reported, found, and squashed just one day after the previous release. This along with other issues will be addressed in the upcoming 0.7.4 release. In the meantime, this patch will correct the bug. Copy the patched file frmGol.class to the gradel source directory and recompile with ./compile.sh. Uninstall the old version with ./uninstall.sh (as root) and finally reinstall with ./install.sh (as root).

11-16-2006 GradeL 0.7.3 released. This release adds a weighted categories grading systems for marking period grades. The Gradel window resizing was also changed. The window can no longer be resized with the mouse, this must take place from the View Menu. This version still includes bugs. I have already discovered a few, including a crash when a category that is in use is deleted. This and others will be fixed in the next release.

10-27-2006 GradeL 0.7.2 released. This release fixes a bug in the grading scale that could crash the program.

09-11-2006 GradeL 0.7.1 released. Still in alpha phase.  Attendance tracking added. Minor bug fixes also included. This release is experimental. Let me know if you find problems.  Slowly working toward a beta release.

04-21-2006 GradeL 0.6.2 released.

04-08-2006 Patch for GradeL 0.6.1. Replace file CodeEditForm.form with this patch. Then compile again, uninstall, and install. This will fix the weird placement of controls when editing codes.
