VisualGST 0.8.0 is out:
- a new UI - kill a lot of bugs :D - internal design changes - icons for the UI - Menu, toolbar and popup menu builder - Sidebar for sender/implementer - correctly file out a namespace (will be used for packages) - ...
This release should be more stable, I've removed
the last know bug that crash VisualGST.
What are the plan for the next release:
– PackageSource it will generate a package source and its dep file. – Bug fixing (yep again :-P)
– write unit test – Include preferences framework – migrate to the new state refactoring – package management within VisualGST with a tool like we have in linux distro (list of repositories/list of installed packages/…
I would like to announce the second Beta of VisualGST 0.8.0
Here is the changelog of VisualGST:
- Class name displayed on tab (Done by Nicolas Petton) - bug fixing - file out of namespaces with extensions support - commands improvements (menu and tool bar refactoring)
Here are the tasks for the third beta:
- test the commands
I would like to thanks Nicolas Petton and Paolo Bonzini for their help ;-)
I started to play with smalltalk somewhere in February, more specific with the GNU Smalltalk implementation. Like it is with any new language and class library it takes a while to get productive and it took me until somewhere the last month where I finally started to do GSM handling in Smalltalk and thanks to laf0rge the code is now in a public repository and hosted along the other Osmocom projects. You can see all the subprojects over here.
The GNU Smalltalk sprint will be done during this week end (11-12 December)
It will be done on IRC #gnu-smalltalk on Freenode (irc.freenode.net)
and it is open to everybody :)
Some proposed tasks:
- Coverage tool (for method-coverage, it can be based on gst-profile)
- SUnit testcases for CObject and everything not currently covered
- Fixing the compiler (http://smalltalk.gnu.org/project/issue/527)
- Fixing gst-remote (http://smalltalk.gnu.org/project/issue/497 and
- Fixing GTK on OSX
- Packages (atomic loading, package builder, ...)
- Allow VisualGST to hook up to a headless gst like gst-remote does.
Just imagine how much fun working on a running Iliad app you could
have with this.
Iliad uses controller methods of applications to dispatch requests to stateful widgets. When the user intracts with widgets, they will be updated with AJAX requests.
Controllers are oftenly used to get a domain object from the request's url, and store it in the application.
