Finally all piece are (more or less ;-) ) in place. Mixing all together and filling with live is straight forward now.
beamer-tool is going towards its 3.1 release very soon!
After getting finally Windows7 on my laptop I can verify that beamer-tool is running fine on Windows7.
Stay tuned for the upcomming 3.1 release of beamer-tool!
After a long time of stopped work, I finaly started over again.
Right now a lot a basic libraries are replaced and the old 2D/Swing stuff is working again.
Due to this library move the next release will be version 3.1 (skipping the 3.0 branch completly) . Also it allows a more flexible configuration with dedicated server and viewer components (if required, it is not enforced).
Currently I'm a little bit struggled with the Maven packaging but this should be solveable in no time though a new beta release should be near :)
I decided to move from CVS to SVN after working with SVN in other projects like SMSlib (http://www.smslib.org) and reading some documentation about SVN.
SVN supports file movement and uses UTF as log message encoding.
The main code base of beamer-tool is just migrated to SVN and CVS is deprecated.
Within the next hours beamer-tool_c++ should be in SVN, too.
Ohloh.net is updated and a new mailinglist for developers is also installed.
Through this mailinglist the developers of beamer-tool can discuss about next releases and see current SVN diffs.
This release fixes a log of bugs and beamer-tool_admin becomes almost release-ready.
The GUI is completly rebuild but the configuration wizzard will be first availible in 3.1.
beamer-tool_viewer has a lot of performance flaws but should work stable, too.
Event message filtering works again.
The depolyment problems with java are also fixed.
For Windows there will be a exe for beamer-tool_admin and viewer each. These exe contain the complete wrapped jar with all additional files.... read more
The rewrite of beamer-tool from C++ to Java comes to its end.
The basic infracstructure is stable and the libaries dosen't change for a quite long time now.
Platform specific startup-files and other platform specific problems have been adressed, too.
beamer-tool_admin is ready for the first release candidate. The wizzard isn't finished yet. It will be complete in 3.1.
beamer-tool_viewer instead need some tweaks. The swing part is at 99% but the OpenGL-stuff has some problems. At least performance ones....... read more
