Build Automator 1.60 Beta 3
« on: April 23, 2009, 11:23:39 AM »
Hi all,

We have made version 1.60 Beta 3 available for general download for those who are interested. 

Note that this IS a BETA build and you run it at your own risk.  It has been thoroughly tested in-house, but it is a BETA!

This build converts the project files so make sure that you make backups of your projects before you open them with the new version.  We have used the conversion on all our projects, both test projects and live projects, without any issues at all (well over 100 conversions so far)

In order to install this build you need to have a valid Maintenance Plan.  It is only available as a full install and not through the web update - i.e. "Check for updates"  Once the build is released out of Beta testing you will of course be able to run the webupdate:) 

To download please use this link:  http://www.buildautomator.com/files/Beta%20builds/BuildAutomatorInstall_1.60%20BETA 3.exe

Note that the path is case sensitive!

If you have ideas for new actions, new features, improvements, whatever, please don't hesitate to let me know! 

Below is a full list of the items we have worked on.


Fixes:
  • Case #64:  If project file was read-only it would show a rather cryptic message not detailing what the problem was and aborted opening the project.  Fixed for Beta 3,
  • Case #62 & 65:  If one or more project items were unchecked the execution would stop.  Fixed for Beta 3.
  • Case #66:  The Stop button on the Compile multiple Clarion apps action did not work properly.  Fixed for Beta 3,
  • Case #63:  When the "Stop with message on fatal errors" in the Compile Clarion and Compile Multiple Clarion Apps is checked the script terminates without an option to continue.  Fixed for Beta 3.
  • It was not possible to select a source folder in the Copy Files action, only a file. Fixed for Beta 3.
  • Source file entry on Copy Files did not resize correctly.  Fixed for Beta 3.
  • Case #60:  Wildcard handling in Source file entry on Copy Files was not correct.  Fixed for Beta 3.
  • When selecting a single application file for Compile Multiple Clarion apps using the Add button, the target file was not always retrieved correctly.  Rejected:  Problem is in the FileDialog which sometimes shifts the filenames in the file entry for unknown reasons.
  • Added a window to enter/paste multiple application names for Compile Multiple Clarion Apps.  Application order is preserved when importing. 
  • Target filenames were still not always retrieved from the application in Compile Clarion and Compile Multiple Clarion Apps.  The reason was that in some cases there can be more than one project section in the application file.  Fixed for Beta 3.

Outstanding issues in Beta 2:
  • Clarion compiles would not attempt to locate target file based on REDirection file.  Under construction.
  • Moving multiple selected project action items did not work.  Under construction.
