Installation packages for ooDialog 4.2.1 beta are now available on
ooDialog 4.2.1 is a bug fix and enhancement release. The Release
Notes and the ReadMe file that displays on the SourceForge download
page contain a list of the bug fixes and enhancements in 4.2.1.
Users of ooDialog should test the beta and report bugs or other
problems through the ooRexx SourceForge tracker for bugs:
Beginning with the release of ooDialog 4.2.0, the installation of
ooDialog has been decoupled from the interpreter. ooDialog 4.2.1
installs over the top of any ooRexx installation. It replaces the
version of ooDialog in the ooRexx installation with ooDialog 4.2.1.
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
ooDialog 4.2.1 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 4.2.1.
