Liner Notes
The FATpick Blog

While it's not a ground-up re-write, the upcoming FATpick v2 release includes significant changes to several aspects of the app, including many new and enhanced capabilities.

For this reason, some of our existing documentation will be out-of-date when FATpick 2.0 is released. But it won't be completely invalid. In some cases the differences will be purely cosmetic - the same functionality is available but the screens look slightly different. In other cases the old documentation may describe features that have been dropped or radically changed, or may not describe new features that have been added.

Hence for both short-term utility (i.e., until we've had a chance to fully update the documentation) and eventual historical curiosity (i.e., it might be fun to look back at the v1 look-and-feel some day), this post archives some of the legacy screenshots and other documentation.

NOTE: Not all of these screen shots are necessarily out-of-date - and some many not be out of date yet but may eventually be made obsolete by subsequent changes in FATpick 2.x (or later releases). However each of these screenshots does represent the look-and-feel and/or feature set of the first generation (v1.x series) of FATpick.
