The ooRexx development team is announcing the availability of ooDialog
4.2.0 (beta) r6569 on SourceForge.
r6569 contains a number of fixes for reported bugs, progress on the
documentation, and some new samples since r6456.
Remember, using and working with ooDialog 4.2.0 now, will give you the
chance to influence the final release. If you find things you do not
like, or would like to see done differently, you can still get those
changes made. Once ooDialog 4.2.0 is released, the new features will
be set in stone.
ooDialog 4.2.0 will be the next major release of ooDialog. The
release contains new dialog classes, new dialog controls, new methods,
context menus, enhanced functionality, and much more. The beta
version is being distributed through a technology currently called
The Switch ooDialog package installs an application that easily and
transparently switches the active version of ooDialog, in the ooRexx
installation, between two different ooDialog versions. In this case
between ooDialog 4.2.0 and the ooDialog version (4.1.0) distributed
with ooRexx 4.1.0.
Because of the ease of use with Switch ooDialog, the ooDialog
programmer runs no risk in using and working with ooDialog 4.2.0
(beta.) Once installed, the ooDialog programmer can switch to
ooDialog 4.2.0 to try it for a day, an hour, or even 10 minutes, then
switch back to ooDialog 4.1.0. Switch ooDialog operates like a toogle
and the user can switch back and forth between the two ooDialog
versions at any time, as often as needed.
