Gambas 3.6.1

What's new

This release fixes many problematic bugs still present at 3.6.0 release.

ChangeLog

[CONFIGURATION]
* BUG: The gbw3 symbolic link is correctly uninstalled now.

[DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT]
* BUG: Don't use "sTable" as field name for the metadata table, because
  apparently "STABLE" is a reserved word in PostgreSQL. Upgrade an already
  existing metadata table automatically.
* BUG: Don't crash when starting a search from a image or connection
  editor.
* BUG: Run packaging commands through a virtual terminal.
* BUG: Project property dialog: The component grid view now correctly keep
  its state when filtering is applied, or if only the used components are
  displayed.
* BUG: Project property dialog: The component hemp viewer now works
  correctly in off-line mode.
* BUG: Don't crash when installing the Gambas font, if the
  '~/.config/fontconfig' directory does not exist.
* BUG: Workaround the behaviour of appmenu by setting the
  'APPMENU_DISPLAY_BOTH' environment variable at startup if menus are
  explicitly hidden.
* BUG: Form editor: Undo correctly resets the selection.

[INTERPRETER]
* BUG: The internal UTF-8 string position cache now works in all cases.

[COMPILER]
* BUG: Dump boolean constants in *.info files the same way as the informer.

[EXAMPLES]
* BUG: MoviePlayer: Use an embedder as mplayer container. It's the only
  control that has its own X11 window in all toolkits.

[GB.DB]
* NEW: Add support for databases like PostgreSQL that are not fully case
  insensitive.
* BUG: Try to retrieve the connection password only if the 'gb.desktop'
  component is loaded, and only display warning messages in that case.

[GB.DB.FORM]
* BUG: Setting DataView.Editable property to FALSE and then to TRUE works
  correctly now.

[GB.DB.POSTGRESQL]
* BUG: Automatically convert field names to lowercase when creating a
  table.
* BUG: Quote field names when creating a table, even if they are converted
  to lower cases.

[GB.FORM]
* BUG: DirChooser: Correctly update the toolbar according to the file view
  visibility.
* BUG: Setting Spinner.Enabled to FALSE correctly stops the animation now.
* BUG: SwitchButton: Use a "disable" look for ON and OFF state when the
  Enabled property is FALSE.

[GB.JIT]
* BUG: IIf generated incorrect code for the types CSTRING and STRING.

[GB.GTK]
* BUG: Correctly interpret "&#xxx;" HTML entities in rich text.
* BUG: Start fixing drag and drop.
* BUG: Clipboard.Copy() now works for all text formats.
* BUG: Use GtkSelectionData accessor function.
* BUG: Ensure that the Embedder background is painted.
* BUG: Remove a debugging message.
* BUG: TextBox: Postpone the Change event so that replacing the selection
  raises a unique Change event.
* BUG: Fix input method handling: key events cancellation and key repeat
  are correctly taken into account now. The "X input method" does not work
  (key events are internally sent four times!).
* BUG: Ensure that Clipboard.Paste() behaves the same as in gb.qt4.

[GB.GTK3]
* BUG: Correctly interpret "&#xxx;" HTML entities in rich text.
* BUG: Start fixing drag and drop.
* BUG: Remove two symbolic links on source files that do not exist anymore.
* BUG: Clipboard.Copy() now works for all text formats.
* BUG: Use GtkSelectionData accessor function.
* BUG: TextBox: Postpone the Change event so that replacing the selection
  raises a unique Change event.
* BUG: Fix input method handling: key events cancellation and key repeat
  are correctly taken into account now.
* BUG: Ensure that Clipboard.Paste() behaves the same as in gb.qt4.

[GB.GUI.BASE]
* BUG: IconView item renaming doesn't crash anymore.

[GB.NET]
* BUG: Fix a function declaration.

[GB.QT4]
* BUG: Application.PreviousControl returns the expected value now.
* BUG: Sometimes assigning Paint.Font has no effect. Workaround that
  strange Qt bug.

  the clipboard.
