Anki 2.0 will not stop working come Jan 1, it will just no longer be able to access AnkiWeb.
I'm afraid what I said in the previous discussion still stands - normalization improves things for the majority of users. A way may present itself in the future to support these archaic variants without losing the benefits of normalization, but it's not possible at the moment.
The new ANki version doesn't work on my computer at all. The graphics don't run (error message), and after fixing, I find out that they're still messed up. No symbols, misplaced buttons, empty flashcards. Also, all my addons are gone. So, nothing works for me with the new version. Could you implement some kind of alternate server to still be able to update after January fist? I tried the official version of the latest Anki, and even the beta version. Both don't work...
Luke, you are safe if you only learn regular words, but anything literary or more in-depth might get eaten. I don't know the exact codepoints for Chinese, but for Japanese it's only compatible with SHIFT JIS 1 and 2, no 3 and 4.
I'm reading Natsume Souseki in Japanese, the Records of Wei in parallel (JP-CN) and a bunch of pre-war classics. Several words I got from these sources have issues on Anki 2.1.
I can't install 2.1 in my laptop. My MacBook Pro is about 10 years old and it couldn't be upgraded to later iOS version due to limited memory. If I force my MacBookPro to upgrade, it might run very slowly just like his age. I have only one laptop and can't afford a new one.
I really need to edit information with 2.1 on laptop and practice it on my iPhone. :(
I have downloaded Anki 2.1.15 but when I install it and open it, it says version 2.0.51. I have tried uninstalling everything and reinstalling, no change. Is it possible the file download is incorrect? Please advise.
I have error messages in 2.1 for a deck that never made any problem whatsoever in 2.0. The card even show wonderfully errorless in the editing window. There is nothing wrong with the HTML either, why is there suddenly a "HTML error" without any display?
The syncing is an important feature for commuters. But the switch to 2.1 also makes me lose the "advanced previewer" add-on that I heavily rely on. Is there a guide how to update add-ons to the 2.1 API? The add-on creator does not seem to do it. Can anyone help?
Not sure what drove the decision, but two months is a short time to inform everybody. I appreciate there is a heads up at all, but updating add-ons and figuring out weird errors in 2.1 that never appeared with same deck in 2.0 takes time. I would also have appreciated an option to not show the warning over and over as long as still using 2.0.
