New features in Converter 0.6.4

This version features one bug fix and partial support for superscript notation.

Type Feature Example Comment
bug fix numbers formatted with multiple periods are supported again
  • 1.000.000 mm
  • 1.000,3 cm
This bug has been reported by Mr. Stoltz. Trying to convert the string in the example produced unexpected results in version 0.6.3. That problem has been fixed (try selecting the text in the example and right-clicking). The problem was caused by the implementation of the bug fix in version 0.6.3.
capability limited support for the <sup> (superscript) tag
  • 10 m2
  • 10 in3
The measurements in the examples are written using a different notation in HTML than what the Converter supported so far (they are using the <sup> tag: 10 m<sup>2</sup>, 10 in<sup>3</sup>).

The support for this format is limited in two ways:

  1. The conversion only works when converting the entire page (i.e. it doesn't work via selection);
  2. The page content is actually changed when converting (notice how the original text is changed to "10 m^2", and "10 in^3" respectively). This is not elegant, but I find it an acceptable compromise, given that the conversion works this way. If you find any inconvenience in this compromise, please give me some feedback on the topic and I'll implement a preference to disable it.
minor improvement cubic cm and in are better supported and shown nicer
  • 10 cm³
  • 10 in³
This really is just a minor, technical thing -- the previously unsupported unit&sup3; format is now supported, and instead of being shown as unit^3 in the converted format, it's now shown as unit³.
