Alarm 3.5.11 Released, Merry Christmas!

I am pleased to be releasing Alarm 3.5.11. This version, while originally deemed a major update, has been downgraded minor update due to an overly-complicated update process between 3.5.10 and 3.5.11. So, the new settings system is delayed for Alarm 4.0, as originally intended. Having the new system in earlier 3.5.11 builds though has allowed me to fix a few issues with the system.

Changes to 3.5.11 are as follows:
Addition: 2,3,4,6,8 Hour and Custom Quick Alarms. Thanks to Missy for the suggestion.
Addition: Alarm 4 About dialog added.
Change: Removed one of the first startup dialogs. (The thanks dialog)
Change: Code refactoring
Change: Automatically Displays Morning Reminder when Alarm goes off.
Change: Some changes to the default settings.
Addition: Release Notes Viewer
Change: Check for Updates doesn’t run on first startup.
Addition: University of Akron (Grad School) Color Scheme.
Change: Adjust Volume now disabled when media isn’t selected.

This will hopefully be the last version of Alarm 3.5. Alarm 4.0 is coming, I promise.

Also, Merry Christmas to everyone!

Support, Download Links, Old Alarm Updates

I’ve changed the main Alarm support email address.

You can now receive support by sending a message to:

I’ve decided that in order to have a more consistent experience for those who would like to add a link to the Alarm installer on their website, I will have a permanent location for the latest version of Alarm. This location will always be available as long as this site is online so that download links will not be broken and people are guaranteed to get the absolute latest version of Alarm when they download it.

The address is:

Please use this address whenever you link to the installer.

The update process for 3.1.7-3.5.7 has been changed slightly so that I no longer have to support the older update service. Basically, users of those versions will be told that there is a new version available without actually saying what that version is. Once they download the installer, they will be able to see what they are installing before they actually agree to installing it. This makes it easier to make sure those with older versions of Alarm are presented with the absolute latest updates.

That’s about it. Thanks for your continued support.
