GOWrite 2.2.0

Post by lpaatero »

This is snapshot from GOWrite 2.2.0 work. Code has been tested very little, so please be prepared for serious bugs!

Also code is far from feature complete, I am adding new things continuously. I will be updating code in this post more-or-less often until code stabilizes more.

Main changes 03-06-2006

- Primitive game search engine. Search engine (available edit->search) searced positions similar to selected area in boarad.
In Options->database create and select location for database. Then add directory roots for scanning SGF files. Then press "rebuild" in this dialog, enable background updates and close dialog. Database is build in background with speed of 10-30 games/s. Database speed is not yet fully optimized, so they require reasonable fast machine to be usable, >1.5GH processor should provide acceptable usability.


- Print wizard can be used to add diagrams into game quickly. Seems to work quite fine.
- Lots of fixes to printing, support for 1-3 columns and automatic scaling of too big diagrams to fit to column.

- Copy wizards works, but not yet very usefull.

- Installers improved. linux installer now adds gowrite into menu.

- Few tweaks to visual outlook.

- If GOWrite is started manually from command line, please use command

Code: Select all

java -Xmx200m -jar GOWrite.jar
This should allow searching of joseki patterns also from Kogo's joseki library file and making large edits to Kogo's library editing.

This version (03-06-2006) is already quite well working, so it may be worth testing.

It is possible to have both GOWrite 2.1 and 2.2 installed at the same time, as long as they are in different directories. However they should not be used during same session in linux or windows due to startup scripts.

It is not possible to translate 2.2 now. New texts are not yet included in translation system.

Thanks,

Seems I broke a lot of things when creating Windows installer, as also gowrite.exe was old (help and database support did not work).

Other versions seem to work fine.

regards

Windows installer version in original message is now fixed, both database and clipboard should work.

Some features coming in next drop (expected to be out 2006-07-xx):

- SVG export in HTML/XHTML. Works, but improvements still needed. It seems that there is lots of problems (or variations...) in applications rendering SVG.

- Possibility to copy gaphics for just one move to clipboard.

- HTML Export can now generate comment references to move as graphics.

- Some additions to selection tools (edit->select sub-menu added). (Not many)

- Some pre-selected colors in board color selection dialog.
