Changelog

CONFIGURATION

  • Fix deletion of empty directories for FreeBSD.

  • Update README.md file.

DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT

Debugger

  • Use SIGUSR2 signal instead of SIGUSR1 to stop debugged processes, because SIGUSR1 makes WebKit crash.

Form editor

  • Do not crash if a user-defined control inheriting UserContainer requests a non-container in its DrawWith property. Use a Panel or TabPanel instead.

  • Add an help menu for controls in the toolbox.

  • Put the toolbox buttons in its bottom bar.

  • Do not crash if a control in _Similar does not exist.

  • Fix the coherency test on _DrawWith property.

Help browser

  • Handle the wiki:// links through the Error event.

Project open dialog

  • Change the layout of the buttons to fix behaviour with GTK+3.

Search dialog

  • Replace message boxes by a label.

  • The title now correctly follows the current tab title.

Test panel

  • The spinner now is correctly shown during the test.

  • Display a different message if the test is aborted.

Translation dialog

  • Do not use sorted ComboBoxes for choosing languages, as Qt and GTK+ do not sort the same way, and it breaks the behaviour of the dialog when using GTK+3.

  • The "copy all translations" menu works correctly now.

  • Use an explicit background for the untranslated string TextArea, because transparent background does not work with GTK+.

Welcome window

  • Fix the drawing of the close button of project boxes displayed in single column.

  • Project lists scroll to the top when the filter changes.

Miscellaneous

  • Update French translation.

  • Update Turkish translation.

  • webform project template now uses gb.web.gui instead of gb.web.form.

  • Fix "1" character in Gambas 16 pixel regular font.

INTERPRETER

  • Fix compilation on BSD systems.

  • Fix a string memory leak in error management.

  • Abort JIT compilation before executing the QUIT instruction.

  • WAIT with a positive value should not block anymore in some case.

SCRIPTER

  • Fix --convert-project single parameter version.

SELF-TESTER

  • Make the self-tester use the current Gambas version.

GB.DB.ODBC

  • Try to read date fields correctly in most ODBC drivers.

GB.DEBUG

  • Use SIGUSR2 signal instead of SIGUSR1 to stop debugged processes, because SIGUSR1 makes WebKit crash.

GB.FORM

  • FileView: Fix automatic extension behaviour.

  • MenuButton: Custom drawing of shortcut underlines for GTK+.

  • Search for icon themes in /usr/local for BSD systems.

  • SidePanel: Hidden side panels have now a one pixel size. Because GTK+ components cannot handle zero-size controls at the moment.

  • FileChooser: Fix file uncompress that was done twice.

  • DocumentView: Reintroduce the old properties renamed in 3.16.0 for backward-compatibility.

GB.FORM.DIALOG

  • Remove useless gb.gsl from project components.

GB.FORM.EDITOR

  • Sh editor mode: remove quotes from braces list.

  • TextEditor: Remove tabledragger.js test file because it is copyrighted.

  • TerminalView: Reset() method does not fail anymore if the currently running process is dead.

GB.GUI.BASE

  • SpinBox: Update the current value before returning it with the Value or the Text property.

  • SpinBox: Take into account that the internal mouse timer may be cleared during its event handler.

  • Frame: Make frame contents cover the entire control area when there is no arrangement, for backward-compatibility.

  • ListBox: Use a natural sort for sorting the ListBox contents.

GB.GTK

  • Display the warning about calling the event loop during a keyboard event once.

  • Clipboard: Always replace "text/plain" format by "text/plain;charset=utf-8" when pasting.

  • The workaround of Pango markup bug makes lines disappear with recent versions of Pango, so remove it.

  • Font.RichTextSize() now uses the same algorithm as Font.TextSize().

  • TextArea: Add a padding proportional to the font height.

  • Automatic container resize now takes the arrangement of the parent of the container into account.

  • Don't remove file descriptors watches in the quit hook to behave like Qt components.

  • Remove a forgotten debugging breakpoint that made reading Key properties crash when there is no keyboard event data.

  • Window: Reparenting a window now keeps the title and the enabled state correctly.

  • Some deferred arrangements were useless, don't do them.

  • Focus navigation works again.
