• [VOICENWS] General: XWP v1.0.11 GA

    From feedback@os2voice.org@1:3634/1000 to All on Fri Dec 16 20:53:49 2016

    ++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

    I'm pleased to announce the availability of XWP v1.0.11, a new version
    that features some significant enhancements and bug fixes. Portions of
    this work were subsidised by a generous grant from VOICE International.


    XWP's Splitview folder window has been redesigned and renamed Xview.
    Now, in addition to the tree-and-icon view that's great for looking
    at Desktop folders, it offers a tree-and-details view better suited
    to managing files on your drives.


    Changes to XWP's build system now permit the creation of two versions:
    Full and Lite. Lite is very similar to eWP but without the eCS branding
    and logos. Unlike eWP, it includes XWP's Startup Folders, probably the
    most popular XWP feature missing in eWP. Be aware that it does not
    contain XWP Setup or Media.

    =NLS Packaging=

    In previous versions you had to install a base package, then a separate
    NLS package. No more!! Each package (DE/EN/IT/JA/NL) is now a complete, standalone version with everything you need. Multiple language support
    is still possible: install the languages you want, with your preferred
    language last.


    As always, this version is packaged as a WarpIn archive. Unlike earlier versions, it uses os2.ini entries to create objects. just as the OS
    installer would. After installation, let WarpIn restart the Desktop or
    reboot manually to have XWP's objects created.


    Currently the files are in the 'incoming' directory at hobbes http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-browse.php?dir=/pub/incoming>

    Eventually, they will be moved to 'apps/wps/xworkplace' http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-browse.php?dir=/pub/os2/apps/wps/xworkplace>
