We still need a few commited individuals that have a few hours to do a
couple remaining tasks.
I. LOCALE SUPPORT. Many of our locales haven't been updated to reflect
the latest string list. If you are a non-English native language
speaker, please consider emailing the list your commitment to translate
a few english strings to your native tongue.
II. Color scheme support: It seems with the new Search and Popup
catagories of color/font schemes, we have a few problems. The current
default scheme provided do not include information for these categories.
If you might have time to look at picking colors for these categories
and including entries for them in the scheme's .conf file, and emailing
those to the list, I will be sure to include your updated version in the
IIb. It also seems that font and colors are not defaulting well. If
you have Borland C++ Builder and would like to look at why sometimes
popup windows and search results do not used a defaulted font that
should be able to display properly, please send an email with stating
that you are willing to look into it. CLUE, it's probably somewhere in:
III. InstallMgr is in an uncompilable state. We started to move
installmgr to libcurl. It compiles, I guess, but a small section of
code that does the file transfers is commented out and there is an
example of a curl call (that only downloads the latest version of the
curl library :) ) in its place. If someone is willing to roll back
these changes and compile a good version of installmgr against the
latest sword libs, this would be great. It shouldn't take much time
looking at the cvs log for the installmgr files to see when the changes
were made. If anyone can, instead, finish the curl code, this would be
a plus, and would probably get migrated into the core api eventually.
Again, please post your commitment to this task to the list.
Thanks guys. Hoping to get these things finished within the next few
days for a great release.
