Partition Logic 0.64

Posted on Saturday, October 28 2006 @ 00:50:31 CEST by LSDsmurf

Overview: This is a maintenance release, with extensive code grooming and bug fixes. There are a handful of new, user-visible features, such as right-click context menus on the disk list and partition diagram/list, and 32-bit bitmap image/icon support. The real focus of this release has been stability, quality, and large scale re-engineering of the graphical interface code.
  • Implemented right-click context menus.
  • Added support for 32-bit .bmp bitmap images and .ico icons
  • The partition diagram now responds to keyboard cursor inputs.
  • Did general, large scale GUI re-engineering.
  • Dialog windows no longer appear in the window shell's window list.
  • Disabled USB support for now, since it's broken and can cause some boots to hang
  • Booting now works under the Bochs 2.3 emulator (failed in graphics mode under earlier versions)
  • The window border component only ever drew when it was called to draw the top border, since it could only draw the entire border. Now the 'draw gradient border' function can draw individual lines of a border and the border component draws the parts individually.
  • Did some cleanup of the vloader OS loader code
  • Added a function to redraw all the windows, and another one that resets all of the (non-custom) colors of all the windows' components. Setting the colors in the 'Display Settings' program uses this to change all of the window colors immediately.
  • Window canvas components now show a visual change when they are focused.
  • GUI menu components now have their own graphic buffers, so that regardless of what window they come from they can stay on top, extend outside the window, etc.
  • Fixed: The vloader OS loader was being written to the *second* free cluster by the Fedora VFAT driver when not using FAT32. Made a hack to adjust it when installing from Fedora, and generally streamlined the copy-boot program.
  • Fixed: A slight bug in the FAT code in that it relied too strictly on the Microsoft definition of FAT-type detection. Now it takes into account a couple of extra hints.
  • Fixed: The 'view' program wasn't showing tab characters properly in text files.
  • Fixed: The 'vsh' shell would crash if the user entered a line containing only whitespace.
  • Fixed: A bug in the copyArea() function of the framebuffer graphic driver in that it wasn't checking to see whether the areas were outside the buffer.
