New release 1.0.91

Item posted by Jens Thoms Törring <jtt> on Sat 22 Nov 2008 08:07:09 PM UTC.

I am happy to finally announce the release of XForms 1.0.91. Hopefully this is another step on the somewhat longer than expected road to XForms 1.1.0. The new release is mostly a maintainance release with the emphasis on removal of bugs, code clean-up and getting it more in line with the description in the documentation. So only a very small amount of new features were added.

Here is a list of new features (see the files New_Features.txt for a more detailed description and ChangeLog for a complete list of all changes):

V1.0.91 November 22, 2008

  • The default "look" of objects has been changed, mostly by reducing the default border width.
  • New function for determining the border width of an object
  • New function for determining the gravity setting of an object
  • New function for determining the resize properties of an object
  • New functions that allows to set and query which mouse buttons a button reacts to - this can now also be set via fdesign
  • New goodie function for showing a message box
  • New goodie function for showing an alert box
  • New function that allows to switch off the title of a menu
  • New function that allows to determine the sizes the window manager puts aroung a form's window
  • New function that allows to determine if a form's window is iconified
  • Creation and dealing with menus has been changed to allow callback functions, deletion of menu entries etc.
  • The option '-debug' has been changed to '-fldebug'
  • New option '-flhelp' has been added

Lacking symbol fl_inverted_y in 1.0.91 (posted by Tore H. Larsen, Thu 02 Apr 2009 08:00:40 AM UTC)

Hi,
moving a project from RHEL4U7 to RHEL5U3, going from 1.0.90 to 1.0.91 I see missing symbol fl_inverted_y

[root@edv-argus1 ]# strings /usr/lib64/libforms.so.1.1.0 | grep fl_invert

[root@edv-argus1 ~]# rpm -Uvh --force RHEL5/xforms-*
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:xforms ########################################### [ 50%]
2:xforms-devel ########################################### [100%]

[root@edv-argus1 ~]# strings /usr/lib64/libforms.so.1.0.0 | grep fl_invert
fl_inverted_y

Is there any particular reason it was removed ?

Regards,Tor
