Official 5.2 Beta Release Thread
#14
Some more pre-release tweaks, close to the last ones definitely.

5.1.912
  • Extend the 'settle time' that we added to the web server in the previous drop, to give more time for things to settle before we allow it to be beaten on.
  • Get rid of the links to individual videos in the HTML help because Youtube doesn't allow us to keep a consistent URL if a video has to be changed. So if we ever update one, we'd break the link in the help of every shipped system. Just have links to the overall playlists, which won't change.
  • The check box widget is initializing the 'state based colors' entry in the attribute editor with the wrong attribute value. It's using the bold value. Probably a cut and paste error in the pre-5.0 work that just has never been caught all this time. That means you will think you haven't set it, or that you have set it when you haven't.
  • On a fresh install, in the 'basic options' panel of the installer, default device support to enabled, since more often than not it will be desired.
  • An error in the template scaling would cause some images not to be scaled to new versions or the widgets that reference scopes of images (not specific images) to be updated to reference the new image positions.
  • Try to mitigate as best we can the fact that the fonts come out heavier in the browser than when drawn by Windows. But ultimately it doesn't seem to be possible to completely avoid it. Dark text on a light background looks about the same, whereas the other way around it comes out bolder looking sometimes.
  • Initially fill the drawing canvas with the surrounding DIV's background color so that we don't get a flash of black before the template contents starts drawing. This is noticeable if you use a lighter template background color.
  • Make sure we don't get a half line of black on the right/bottom due to the need to do a translation on the HTML canvas (to avoid anti-aliasing stupidity.) We just have to draw a line in the surrounding DIV's color to cover it up.
