Build Automator 1.60 Beta 4
« on: May 11, 2009, 11:48:14 PM »
Hi all,

We have made version 1.60 Beta 4 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 adds full support for Clarion 7 and Clarion.NET using the "Call MS-Build" action. 

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 4.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,
  • Call MS-Build window would jump when opened.  Fixed for Beta 4.
  • Call MS-Build did not compile Clarion 7 solutions or projects.  Fixed for Beta 4.
  • Internal: Action Editor was not handling calling the update correctly.  Fixed for Beta 4. 
  • Create Shortcut button did not have tooltip.  Fixed for Beta 4.
  • Case #70:  When executing a project from shortcut the logfile window was different.  Fixed for Beta 4.
  • Clarion.NET projects (*.cnproj files) were not available in the Call MS-Build action.  Fixed for Beta 4.
  • Call MS-Build did not compiler Clarion.NET solutions or projects.  Fixed for Beta 4.
  • Option to minimize the program when executing.  This also minimizes all programs called from the Build Automator.  This still has issues with focus being grabbed during execution.  This is not finished for Beta 4.
  • Option to "Run Minimized" added to Run File, Run Armadillo, Run Program, Call MS-Build, Compile SetupBuilder, Compile Inno, Compile Setup Factory and Compile MSI Factory actions. 
  • New function added to the SetVariable action - FileExists - that can be used to check if file or folder exists.  The function returns 1 if the file or folder exists and 0 if it does not exist.

Please let us know if you run into any problems.  There are several ways that you can report problems to us:

1.  Report problems to our online bug tracking system (use "Help |Report Problems" from the Build Automator "Help" menu, or go to https://icetips.fogbugz.com/)

2.  Post on our forums at http://www.buildautomator.com/forum

3.  Use the direct online chat support ("Help | Direct online support" option in the "Help menu).

4.  Email us to support@icetips.com

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