The next version of CVGA is growing up. In few months it will be available. Sorry for the long delay occured.
While we are developing the new java version of the application, we are keeping an updated version of the current source code in the CVS repository. The module name of the unstable release is called "current" and can be downloaded also by non-developer. To have a more precise idea on how to do it please read the sourceforge.net documentation.
I write this news to inform everybody about the state of the next release.
Soon it will be ready, it is based on a MySQL as DBMS and it is all written in java using Swing for the GUI.
The first version that will come out to the light will implement just the same operations of the last version written in Visual Basic, just some conceptual different into the DB design.
I hope that this version will be ready before the 16th august 2004 so that we will improve it from the beginning of september.
For the moment there is a always up-to-date version in CVS's "current" module.
is passed a long time after the last new and after the last release.
I have tested CVGA into a shop and I have noticed new little problems with it. I will correct them and I will finish all unterminated details of the application. This operation will bring us to the 1.0 release that will be the last written in VB and using Microsoft Access database.
I have decided to change a little bit the way to walk of this project. I think that we need to spend a little time also thinking about a multi-operating systems release.
We are thinking about java but we are not really sure. There is also the solution to use C, GTK+ libraries and MySQL as database.
We are thinking about a good solution to give birth to a new good application able to substistute the existent.
Sorry, just a little bug into 0.2.0 version doesn't let "Show Video Games" window to display goods in stock. I have resolved the bug and now I have published a new version (0.2.2) without this problem.
Thank you for you attention.
Ok, now it is ready! The really multilanguage version is out.
I have changed many thing inside the source code to let other people to understand it. Then I have deleted two operations: excel file creation and statistics about the good in stock.
I am sorry but now I'm thinking about a new structure of the program that will allow to use this software on different OS and on many computer...
In the next weeks I'm going to write something about the things I have got in my mind to expand and enhance this software.
Hi, I am sorry for this long period of apparently inactivity. I am rewriting the code to make a better work in the future...
I'm evolving the multilanguage and I hope to finish in few weeks.
Hi! Today I have released the multilanguage version of CVGA. I have released only the source code because we need more work to have an efficent software. I will work the next days on this modifications. For the moment, I will upload also the italian dictionary. Any one who want to translate it to another language will help the software. Thank you very much. Soon you will find the next version more configurable.
Hi, during the second half of july I will work on CVGA using the knoledge of Rubens about dictionary in VB. I will give the possibility to every one to translate from a language to another. Then I have got in mind different ways to print reports and different ways to manage files. I will remove xml files and I will use only txt files for store easily good-in-stock. Then I'm thinking about a client server architecture to let more than one computer to have access to the same database and manage good-in-stock from different shops. I hope you will be enough faithfull to wait for this innovations.
