    I'm pleased to announce the first beta for XWorkplace v1.0.12.

    Beta 1 is available in five languages and two versions:

    - "Full", the standard full-featured build

    - "Lite", similar to eWorkplace and ArcaOS Desktop

    Portions of this update have been underwritten by Arca Noae, LLC.

    Updates and Fixes


    XCenter AutoOpen:

    - XCenter will now open automatically at startup and after a Desktop

    restart - an icon in the Startup folder is no longer needed. This

    feature can be disabled in the XCenter's properties.

    Details view:

    - third-party WPS dlls built using the Open Watcom compiler could cause

    the Size field in Details view to be misformatted. XWP now checks for

    the error condition they cause and corrects it.

    Class List:

    - added descriptive entries for previously undocumented classes and

    updated existing descriptions. [from Lewis Rosenthal]

    Trap log:

    - added a new section to identify which exception handler caught the

    trap; updated other sections


    - fixed trap at startup if XWP's list of Startup folders included

    invalid objects


    - simplified the "Worker" thread code; removed obsolete thread priority

    setting from the XWP Setup notebook


    - revised the Options menu; added a "Compact" option for Details view

    - fixed an exception when files were rendered after a drop operation

    - improved error-checking and exception handling.

    Build system:

    - made several changes to reduce the shared-memory usage of XWP's dlls;

    one of these also eliminated the need for translators to use a C

    compiler to build NLS dlls

    - removed a misguided optimization which could cause third-party

    XCenter widget dlls to be 8-10 times larger than needed

    - for XWP-Lite builds, suppressed Help file references to features

    that are not included.
