Xobni 1.9.4: Not a single new feature. (Just tons of improvements)

by Josh Jacobson

Xobni understands that first and foremost, your email experience must be fast, reliable, and stable.  Since the release of Xobni for Outlook 1.9.3, we have been focusing on improving Xobni’s core components and working with customers to make many of the highest priority bug fixes.

Xobni for Outlook 1.9.4 (build 11981) is now available and includes a number of improvements in stability and performance, as well as bug fixes, including:

Performance

  • Many Xobni users would go off to lunch and then come back and feel that Outlook/Xobni was slow.  Xobni was running a number of background indexes and now pauses them as soon as you return so there is no slowdown when you’re working.
  • The “precompute all profiles” stage of indexing will take less time.

General

  • Your custom Outlook signatures are now shown when generating “Schedule Time With,” fun facts, and invitation emails.
  • A number of crashes were diagnosed and fixed (thanks to those who are in the Product Improvement Program)

Phone Numbers

  • Improved the automatic phone number extraction to recognize more international numbers

Conversations and Attachments

  • Conversations are now grouped more reliably instead of occasionally being split into multiple conversations.
  • Attachment indexing is now more thorough; some instances of missed attachments were fixed.

AutoSuggest

  • Many improvements to the display & reliability of the Xobni AutoSuggest window
  • Restart of Outlook 2010 is no longer required to disable Xobni AutoSuggest

Search

  • Names with foreign characters can now be searched for in mixed case

Thanks to everyone on our community forums, our alpha users, and those who filed support cases with “Inspector X” files to help us track down issues and make the email experience more productive for everyone.  Now download Xobni and get back to work 🙂

Note: After you download, you will be prompted to close Outlook and the new Xobni version will be installed. All of your data (Xobni profile merges, contact information entries) will be maintained, no matter what version you are using currently.
If you have already purchased Xobni Plus, this download will simply update your software. You will not need to sign in again and no extra fee is required.

Thanks for using Xobni!

    Why doesn’t Xobni update itself? I can’t even see what version I am on…..

    At the very least you could allow users to set a period for update checking and then offer the option to update or not. Most of the software programs I use offer this facility.

    Perhaps it is there in Xobni, but too deeply hidden?

    Hi Wyndham,

    That’s a great suggestion, thank you. And you’re right. In the meantime, to check what version you are using, go to the “About Xobni” item in the Xobni menu. This will tell you what version you have and if there is a newer one available.

    Thank you for using Xobni.

      Thanks for the response.

      I hadn’t seen the ‘About’ option as I had expected it at the bottom of the menu list. This might seems trivial but people get used to seeing certain things in a ‘regular’ place.

      ‘About’ normally comes either at or near the bottom of the menu list. ‘Help’ would normally come at the top of the list, etc.

      Could I suggest you review where others (e.g. Firefox or Microsoft)have placed their menu items.

    Can you confirm that those of us who are not administrators on our PCs can install v1.9.4?

    (By the way, THANKS for getting that in v1.9.3! Finally I got to experience Xobni like my peers at other companies!)

    Hi Tom,

    Indeed, all versions going forward can be installed by “non-admins.” Install away!

    Thank you for using Xobni.
