Prepare for alpha 1 release

Dec 18, 2008 at 2:33 AM
Finally we find a workaround solution for the SQL Compact Access Violation bug. God bless us. Hope M*cros@ft will fix it as soon as possible.

Although our application is not completed. Many features are not implemented and contains a lot of bugs. We decide to release alpha version as soon as possible to get user feedback.

The several things to do before releasing alpha version:

1. Artwork. Find icons for toolbar
2. Finish standard message viewers.
3. Automatically prompt user to re-create database if it seems broken.
4. Background task states display.

We want to release the first alpha in this weekend. So please do not commit big changes into the source tree, especially the breaking changes that may affect other parts of the application. Only bug fixes and new implemented features can be commited.
