XWP v1.0.12 Beta 1
« on: October 23, 2017, 01:28:16 pm »

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

XStartup:
- fixed trap at startup if XWP's list of Startup folders included
  invalid objects

XFolder:
- simplified the "Worker" thread code; removed obsolete thread priority
  setting from the XWP Setup notebook

Xview:
- 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.

Hi Rich.

I was wondering of the Xview option can be included on the "View" menu of the window? (check attached picture)
Or is it that you can not change a window to Xview once the folder/window is opened ?
Or is it that will generate conflict with the "Tree View"? Or is it not as easy to enable and disable like the other views?

The screenshot shows an Xview window displaying *its* View menu. Having an "Xview" submenu item there wouldn't make much sense. The "Icon" and "Details" view items control how Xview's right-hand pane displays objects.

Tnx for updating XWP.

1) Is it possible to get "Virtual address limit"  not from config.sys but from DosQuerySysInfo ?
    (attached is a sample of the code)
Code: [Select]
    ULONG val = 0;
    rc = DosQuerySysInfo(QSV_VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT,
                         QSV_VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT,
                         &val,
                         sizeof(val));
    if (rc == NO_ERROR)
    {
        printf("Virtual address limit: %d\n",val);
    }

2) Is it possible to change the text in Shutdown dialog like that ?

Hi Rich.

What I was suggesting is if it can be just like the rest of views. On a "Tree View" window you also see the "Tree View" option displayed but grayed out (since it is selected). It will be great if on the the same window that you have open you can switch the view from "Icon View", "Details view", "Tree View", and Xview.

Update: I had noticed (by Ricks' comments) that Xview is not like the rest of views and the views options affect only the right window. Maybe Xview can be like a check/flag that you turn on and off on the view if possible. 

Regards
