ZBoxZ after 0.30a
Started 2003.05.13. Last update date recorded: 2004.01.30.
Many many moons have passed since the release of ZBoxZ 0.30a, with no updates.
I (phaethon) intend to pick up continued development of ZBoxZ, primarily to scratch some itches of my own.
Functional changes from ZBoxZ 0.30a
- RawSend fixed to stop sending spurious crap at beginning.
- RawSend fixed to stop doing spurious crap at end.
- Change in Preferences format -- prior settings are forgotten.
- LowBrowse understands "Content-Disposition: ... filename=" field in HTTP headers (for auto-naming Plucker files).
- User can cancel LowBrowse download in mid-stream (Cancel button).
- Rebindable buttons under Prefs (most of them are ineffective...).
Presentational changes from ZBoxZ 0.30a
- Less "flickering effect" by using refresh instead of switching forms back to self.
- Scrollbar can be moved to left side for left-handers (Prefs setting).
- Top line (area used by menu) commandeered as status line (idea from Diddle).
- Scanning and sorting of DBs postponed until after form is drawn (even less flicker effect).
- Fancy-schmancy progress bar drawn on the across-screen bar just under title (on/off in Prefs).
Changes in PiNGer from 0.30a
- Pen-drag to drag image.
- Lower-bpp images don't mess up.
- Color support works (tested on emulated IIIc, m505)
- Spruced up decoding screen (minor eye candy).
- GIF is broken. I don't feel like fixing it.
Things not done
- I don't know if this incorporates the bluetooth support in zbluez.
- READMEs and docs still talk of older versions.
- CapBMP compile process changed, but hack not tested.
- LaunchBox compile process changed, but app not tested.
- No changes to ZCardZ, ZFaxZ, MusicBox, RUnZip, SyncUnZip.
- Prefs for PiNGer.
- Multi-threaded (faked threads) Atache.
- Merge ZCardZ into ZBoxZ.
Development environment for 0.37:
- GCC 2.95.3-kgpd (m68k-palmos-coff)
- PilRC v2.9p10
- prc-tool 2.2.90
