APro 4.07 available for download

We are finally done with release candidates. The components seem to be quite stable now. This release contains a few minor enhancements.

ShowException is no long used to report Windows errors encountered by the serial port I/O threads. Windows errors are now reported via the OnTriggerLineError event. The Error argument to OnTriggerLineError will be leIOError (10) to indicate that a Windows error has occurred. A new property (LastWinError) contains the actual windows error code. The calling program must still use AddStatusTrigger and SetStatusTrigger to cause the OnTriggerLineError event to fire. Specifying any of the ls* flags to SetStatusTrigger will cause OnTriggerLineError to fire if a Windows error is encountered.... read more

APro 4.07 RC4 avaliable for download

The latest release of ASync Pro is now available for download. This release contains a number of minor bug fixes.

Apro was using QueryPerformanceCounter to calculated elapsed times
for timer triggers and the like. This API call is problematic when
used on certain multi-processor systems and on systems which use
various cooling and power saving modes. Under value returned by
QueryPerformanceCounter can be wildly inaccurate, causing timers to
fire early or late. The avoid these problems, QueryPerformanceCounter
has been replaced with timeGetTime. timeBeginPeriod is called during
initialization to set the minimum update period for timeGetTime to
1 millisecond. NOTE: This means that Apro no longer has sub-millisecond
accuracy when computing elapsed times but this should be less of a
problem than that caused by QueryPerformanceCounter.... read more

Developer's Guide Documentation Files Converted to OpenOffic

The source documents for the Developer's Guide have been converted to OpenOffice format. As with the Reference Guide, these files are probably still a bit rough since the conversion from FrameMaker to OpenOffice via RTF is not particularly clean.

The new files have been imported into CVS in the docsources/Manual/Dev Guide directory.

Documentation files converted to OpenOffice format

The source documents for the Reference Guide have been converted from FrameMaker to OpenOffice format. Any one who is interested in the raw documentation files can find them in CVS in the docsources\Manual\FM Files directory.

The OpenOffice version of the files are probably still a bit rough as the automated conversion from FileMaker to RTF to OpenOffice was not as clean as one might have wanted, but they will provide a good starting place for anyone who is interested in updating the manual.
