The wiki got taken down. It was actually designed to be able to download the wiki locally for offline access as well as toggle between online and local. It'll just give some weird errors now. The backend code is written but not fully present in this version.

I actually developed the app much further since the last submission but I've pretty much given up on it and won't be releasing further versions.

At the moment the "Today" page is fully functional with fully working weather, remainders etc. A proper settings dialog has been implemented so that you can customize some of the things like location for weather.

I've also added a report generator that provides a detailed report (in .pdf) on the animal such as plots of the animal's weight, medical records, family tree etc. I also cleaned up a number of bugs.

Stock management works very well and all the major problems and shortcomings have been resolved. You can even do some custom stuff now and it's now fairly feature rich.

The breeding interface now functions reasonably well. You can create family trees, monitor lineage to help avoid excessive inbreeding and/or bread for specific traits (has a little pseudo generational gene calculator). Its not very feature rich but then again I stopped development.

A place where there was a particular improvement is the management of the actual animals. More fields have been added. Custom fields are now possible. I had to clean up the "edit" box a bit and its actually really quite nice and feature rich. I'm particularly proud of the fact that you can now add a "Remainder" to the animal that will alert you on the "Today" page and/or make a pop up with customizable tone. Vaccinations also now work and the Today page will list animals awaiting vaccinations and remind you when new ones are due. The rules for this unfortunately are defined in an awkward but simple way with no GUI to configure as of yet.

Lastly it now has support for multiple "databases" as well as multiple configurations that you can load on demand. It's also properly packaged now and follows typical Linux and KDE conventions.

In all honesty its probably more like close to a v1.0 release now but I just can't be bothered anymore. Sorry, but I just don't have the time at the moment to put out a release and then support it (not like I really supported it before).

Thanks for your interest and I'm sorry it isn't in a better state. There was just so little interest originally that I felt abandoning it would be better than wasting my time further on it. Maybe in a year or so I'll get back to this when I've graduated and have some time.
