With this release the revision stepped beyond 100, so lets celebrate it.
Some new features are added in this release and some bugs were fixed. For the windows version all dlls have become unnecessary, so the package is a bit smaller than before. Please have a look at the changelog for details.
Last week there was no time to continue developing UniversalIndentGUI. Now some steps ahead are needed. So I would be very thankful for any suggestions to make the project reach beta state. This means fix bugs, make it more usable by menu cleanup or more logical stepwise usage. Please use the bug report and feature request functions here at sourceforge for this.
Now raise your voice!
Just a little new feature, but it might be helpful. Added possibility to edit the source code while preview is active and see how it is formatted. So that is real live ;-)
This release is more an optical fresh up. Some standardized icons are used and a menu bar has been added to provide the common windows usability. Also a rudimentary support for GNU Indent is now present which can be extendend with the use of the ini file format docu.
The documentation of the ini file fomat used to describe the parameters of any indenter is online. This way you can write your own ini file, perhaps using an existing uigui_*.ini file as draft, and add your favorite indenter to use it with UniversalIndentGUI. Please let me know if you wrote an ini file for a new indenter or send the file to me so I can add it to the next release.
If you have any trouble, just ask me in the forum.
Previously compiled using Visual Studio 2005 Express, whereby an additional installation of a redistributable package was needed to run UniversalIndentGUI. To avoid this and not force the user to install anything, now using mingw to compile.
There may occur problems running UniversalIndentGUI under windows. In order to run an application built with Visual Studio 2005 you need some librariers, which are available by installing the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package". I did'nt know this, and Microsoft makes it not very easy this way, to deploy applications.
The needed package for x86 is downloadable by the link:
Perhaps I will compile future versions using mingw gcc to get rid of this problem and not force users to install anything.... read more
Made some adds and fixes. For a changelog look at the file release details or on the home page.
Ole, ole! Germany wins the match against Argentina and here comes the promised Alpha-version. So it would be time for some alpha testing and comments in the forum or buglist. Soon I will put a documentation of the ini-file-format online, so anyone can write one for his favorite indenter. Or tell me and I will write it, it its not too much work.
Small steps brings you forward... Have a look at the changelog to see whats new. Then download it and leave me a note if you want to. I like to read!! ;-)
Release of 0.1.2 but still preAlpha
Ok I am a liar. This is the next release and it is still preAlpha instead of alpha. It is due to lack of time. There are no big feature changes but the technic (format of theini file) is developing. But I wanted to release at least these minor changes to the publicity. Test it!
The planning for a flexible, universal ini file for each indenter is mostly done. The implementation will follow and along with it an ini file for AStyle. With this step the project state will change from preAlpha to Alpha. Release might come this week.
Since I was unsure, if I was allowed to include the needed Qt4 dlls, I left them out. Now cleared that and all needed files are included. Hav fun ;-)
Had some trouble with the upload. Now files are really ready for download. Enjoy!
The pre alpha version 0.1.1 has been released. Read the readme.txt or here under docs for info.
The UniversalIndentGUI website has gone online. You can reach it by te homepage link of the project or diretly under http://universalindent.sourceforge.net
A first version of the UniversalIndentGUI for win32 has been released. Give it a try and if you want, useful comments. Remember this is a very, very pre release and will undergo many changes ;-)
Soon here will be more activity and also a first version and documentation of my tool. From now on it supports only the indenter GreatCode, which I have only compiled for Windows. So there has to be done some work to make all more flexible for more indenters and beautifiers. Stay tuned for upcoming code, news and so on...
