A small number of bugs were discovered in the first release candidate. These have been fixed.  All the installation packages have been rebuilt to produce a send release candidate.

Testing by the users of ooRexx has definitely contributed to producing a better 4.2.0 release.  Continued testing of the release candidate will help ensure that 4.2.0 is a great release.  The second release candidate may be your last chance to test that your ooRexx programs work well with the new version of ooRexx.

Please test the second release candidate and report any issues uncovered on the SourceForge bug tracker at:

NEW: ooDialog version 4.2.3, official release
This is the official release of ooDialog 4.2.3 which is a routine update with bug fixes and a few enhancements. The ReadMe file that displays on the SourceForge download page contains a
list of the bug fixes and enhancements in 4.2.3.  In addition the ooDialog reference manual, in chapter 1, Brief Overview, section 1.5 Current Release contains a complete discussion of the changes in ooDialog 4.2.3 from ooDialog 4.2.2.
4.2.3 has also a few new features including implementations of Vista Open File and Save File dialogs, along with a stand alone ooDialog executable. The executable can be used to display information about ooDialog, to run ooDialog programs with not visible console (similar to rexxhide but with a few enhancements,) as a drag-and-drop target for ooDialog programs, and to configure file associations for ooDialog programs.
Find all this here:

The Open Object Rexx Project is extremely happy to announce the first ooRexx 4.2.0 beta. The first beta installation packages are available on SourceForge at:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/oorexx/files/oorexx/4.2.0%20%28beta%29/?

Installer packages are available for a few operating systems now.  Additional files will be added shortly, as they become available.

ooRexx 4.2.0 is an enhancement and bug fix release.  The first new feature release in some time.  There are a large number of new feature requests that have been implemented in this release.  In addition, many reported bugs have been fixed. Please read the CHANGES document for a list of the bug tracker items fixed and the feature request tracker items that have been implemented.

Please test the beta and report any issues uncovered on the SourceForge bug tracker at:

https://sourceforge.net/p/oorexx/bugs/

Note that the development team is limited both in resources and numbers.  Most members of the team run with the 4.2.0 code on their system every day and have been continually testing ooRexx 4.2.0 since the release of ooRexx 4.1.0.  The bugs that the developers are likely to find, have been found and fixed.  The bugs that currently exist in 4.2.0 need to be found by the users of ooRexx.

The users of ooRexx are strongly urged to, at a minimum, run the Rexx programs they use under the beta code.  Bugs discovered during the beta phase of ooRexx 4.2.0 will be fixed before the final release of 4.2.0.  Bugs discovered the day after the final release will not make it into an official release of ooRexx for quite some time.

Thank you,

Announce: ooDialog 4.2.3 beta now available

Installation packages for ooDialog 4.2.3 beta are now available on SourceForge at:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/oorexx/files/ooDialog/4.2.3%20%28beta%29/

ooDialog 4.2.3 is an enhancement release, with a large number of new features.  The Release Notes and the ReadMe file that displays on the SourceForge download page contain a list of the bug fixes, enhancements, and other changes in 4.2.3.

Users of ooDialog should test the beta and report bugs or other problems through the ooRexx  SourceForge tracker for bugs:

https://sourceforge.net/p/oorexx/bugs/

Beginning with the release of ooDialog 4.2.0, the installation of ooDialog has been decoupled from the interpreter.  ooDialog 4.2.3 installs over the top of any ooRexx installation.  It replaces the version of ooDialog in the ooRexx installation with ooDialog 4.2.3.

This type of ooDialog installation is called an "independent" ooDialog installation to indicate the ooDialog installation is independent of an ooRexx installation and, to a degree, the version of ooRexx installed.

ooDialog 4.2.3 requires a minimum ooRexx version of 4.1.0 to be installed on the target computer.

Installation is simple, done through a typical Windows installer.  Pick the installation package that matches the bitness of the ooRexx installation.  I.e., a 32-bit package for a 32-bit ooRexx and a 64-bit package for a 64-bit ooRexx.  Note that the bitness of the operating system is not relevant here.  If you have installed a 32-bit ooRexx on a Windows 64-bit system, you must install a 32-bit ooDialog.

The installer will detect the installed ooRexx, location, and version.  If the ooRexx version is less than 4.1.0, or if there is no installed ooRexx, the installer will abort with a message explaining the problem.  Otherwise the installer will replace the current ooDialog with ooDialog 4.2.3.
