new release: 2.30.5713

Recommended Posts

Hi *!


Again a delayed release, sorry.


I have compiled an OS2 version of NDN, but:

--- this is UNTESTED

It was simply compiled and packaged without any changes

for OS2. I would like to hear some test report if it works

and maybe what doesn't.

--- it is not really supported at the moment!

since i could not install OS2 on my system a few

months ago (no time to try this out at the moment)

i cannot test/fix anything right now.

Therefore this post just contains a link to the file.


And while I am on OS2:

does NDN - D32 work on OS2?

I would like to hear whether it is useful at all to continue work

on an OS2 version!


Btw, I must repeat an old but always up-to-date statement:

if you write me a bug report, always include the NDN VERSION,

the OPERATING SYSTEM and a DETAILED description of what

happened and how I can reproduce it.


I have to ask for these things over and over again and this is

time consuming and annoying.

When I get a bug report which saves me 1 hour of work on the

"how to reproduce" part of the bug fix I have more motivation

to actually fix it - other bugs may stay on the list for ages...



[-] D32 Mem-Info strings in list contained extra data at end (DevMCB) [A]

-> LNX: added missing RemovePathSep() to sk.__CheckDirectory().ValidPath()

[-] 'CD <disk>' from empty panel called cmdline.TCommandLine.HandleEvent().kbEnter

-> flpanelx.TFilePanelRoot.CommandHandle().cmOpenContextMenu

resulting in UNC drives being treated as CDROM;

the file (or openend it for viewing) []

-> added boolean vfs_arcv.ArchiveDetected; used in vfs_arcv.ArcViewer()

to return success if an archive type was detected



[+] "turn off monitor" screen saver

LNX NOTE: this is AGAIN disabled, because, once again, it didn't work

correctly after hours of work and reading docs.

I am REALLY getting tired of it...
