Our entry level product for Mac OS X and Windows is updated.
This week, Goodsol Development released Most Popular Solitaire 2.02, a maintenance release of this popular solitaire title. The product contains 30 of the most popular solitaire games, including FreeCell, Spider, and Klondike (known to many as simply “Solitaire”), plus 13 more bonus variants (not available in the evaluation version).
Ostensibly, this update contains a few bug fixes and does not change much about the product itself, though internally it takes a sizable step forward. This version brings the code up to the latest (properly tested) version of the Goodsol Solitaire Engine, so future updates will be easier to build and maintain (on multiple platforms).
More is yet to come.
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to challenge myself to completing three products in three weeks. I have been sequestered in my office, for the most part, since then. As much as I would like to proclaim the two Most Popular Solitaire 2.02 SKUs as two of those, the truth is that they were not even considered, so there are still three products (and SKUs) yet to come, albeit not next week.
My status is that the first priority, a full Mac OS X port, has taken longer than originally anticipated, but it will be announced shortly. The second project, extending a recent product to operate on a new platform, has been forcibly pushed back for at least 9 more days. (You figure it out; I cannot talk about it.) The final product in this group, Pretty Good Solitaire Mac Edition 2.20 (with 100 more games and a few new features), is making good progress but… there is only so much we can do at once.
Finally, although I have not had any time for Facebook during my challenge, I will tell you that you — yes, you! — can now become a fan of Pretty Good Solitaire.
