GarageSale 7 Beta 5 Released

Dear GarageSale Users,

Beta 5 of GarageSale 7 is available for you to download from this URL (or by using the built-in updater if you are already running an earlier beta version GS 7):

We’d appreciate your early feedback, so if you have a few minutes to spare, please give GarageSale 7 a try. Your GarageSale 6 installation will not be altered by trying out GarageSale 7.

What’s new since the last Beta release

  • if a listing, which was imported from GarageSale 6 had the ‘local pickup only’ option set, you could not change its shipping options. This has been corrected.
  • when importing a listing from GarageSale 6 which has the ‘local pickup only’ option set, the equivalent ‘local pickup’ shipping service is now added to your listing during initial import. (If this is an issue for you, you might want to trigger a new migration of your GS 6 database by deleting your current GarageSale 7 library. If you already created new listing in GS 7, you need to export them and re-import them after the migration process.)
  • the ‘Select All’ command works when the text insertion mark is in the preview mode’s description area
  • when viewing several listings in the overview table, clicking on an amount column’s header now sorts by the column’s numerical instead of its alphabetic value
  • when buying an upgrade license for GarageSale 7, the option to manually input a previous GarageSale license now works

What’s new in GarageSale 7

  • completely modernized interface with instant error reporting
  • a new custom database engine, which hopefully deals better with large amounts of data and allows us to adapt to eBay changes more quickly
  • GarageSale 7 does away with the template/auction differentiation - it only offers listings, which can either be running or not
  • a new Orders sections which shows information about purchased items and buyers
  • Reports can generate diagrams in addition to text tables
  • automatic update of eBay category information as needed
  • listing design are now optimized for mobile devices
  • local live validation of most eBay errors in new “Preflight” panel
  • listing images can be edit using image editing apps installed on your Mac and with image editing extensions
  • listing images can be copied and pasted between images
  • support for barcodes for on the variation level
  • you can copy specific settings from one listing and paste them into other listings
  • much more

Thanks for using GarageSale,

Thank you for the update and fixes.
I’ll see if anything else stands out. I’ll keep looking for bugs as use the application more.

I can tell you that validating is a bit slow with this early version of GS7, the response time is not as fast as with GS6.

Are you saying, that when trying start an auction the verification phase in the Launch Control window (curve on yellow background animation) takes longer compared to GS 6? I attached a screenshot to make sure that we are talking about the same place:

It seems that way.

It could be that I’m not use to this new window.

but yes we are talking about the same window.

Thanks for the clarification. We’ll pull out our stop watches and see if can measure a difference between GS6 and GS7 during eBay verification. Due to the different application architectures, it might me possible that another request is sharing the same sharing the queue with the verification request and thus delaying the eBay verification.
