Version 3.1.1: Migrates the change history to its own location in Application Support. This is to prevent possible corruption of user's configurations in cases where the change history grows very large. Fixes problem that would prevent certain images from showing in the archive browser
Version 3.0.1: 'under the hood' changes for efficiency, robustness and transparency Adds 'Check for Updates' functionality. Automatic and/or manual Built to run natively on Apple Silicon or Intel Macs
Version 2.12.0: Now correctly archives css and image files which are hosted on another domain Better at finding lazy load images Cleaner and more user-friendly settings tab updates and improves list of selectable user-agent strings
Version 2.10.0: Improvements to crawling engine, particularly with regard to image discovery; now finds and processes image urls within inline styles
Version 2.9.1: Now able to archive all files from a website (where the url is discovered). The default behaviour is as before, only certain files are archived Fixes some pages not displaying properly in the archive browser or after export with processing if they had a base href giving an absolute base address
Version 2.5.6: Fixes and improvements, including: Adds export to CSV from Changes table Adds sorting by URL to Changes table Fixes a problem related to string encoding which could have stopped pages from appearing in the archive browser Updates the browser used for login / captcha And more.
Version 2.5.3: Fixes and improvements, including: Fixes a problem causing certain js files to be skipped Fixes a problem which could cause spurious information to appear in the page content Using the [-] button below the website config list now also deletes the archive, which users expected to happen
Version 2.2.2: Important bug fix - bug could have prevented pages from displaying properly in the archive browser.
Version 2.1.0: Name altered slightly from Watchman to Website Watchman because of a pre-existing project called Watchman. If main window is showing when a scheduled scan kicks in, window switches to sites and settings view (which contains the scan progress bar) Adds 'No alert' to the alert options
Version 1.1.5: Adds some options for 'filtering' pages before comparing Improvements to highlighting functionality Adds option to display source code in the archive browser Other small fixes and enhancements
