For version 2.6 of My Simple LogBook i am planning to
  1. Make advanced search support with regular expressions (will not be default)
  2. Make a graphical editor to the settings.conf
  3. Rename presets.conf button to Options or Settings
  4. Put settings editor inside the window with the presets.conf editor
  5. Change the drawers on the mac version into normal windows

For those that dont know what regular expressions are, here is a small briefing on what it is.

Regular expressions can help you search for text in an advanced way.
Lets say i have 3 logs and i want to find all logs that contain the words "email" or "stuff"
i then tell MSLB to search for (email|stuff)
the () tells i want to search for those words only

lets then say i have 30 logs and want to find those i have written mac addresses inside, we know how mac addresses are buildt up, but we dont know the numbers so we will do an advanced regular expression like this

we will tell mslb to search for \d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}
this will give us all logs that contains mac addresses in the format XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

i am looking forward to add this feature
