All,

Since there were a few bugs that I didn't have time to fix until after I released NeoOffice/J 0.8.1, I have posted "patch-1" that contains some needed bug fixes. Here is a list of the fixes that are in this patch:

1. Bug #69 - After opening a document by drag onto dock icon, mouse clicks are ignored.

2. Bug #77 - Double click doesn't select word.

3. Bug #79 - Hard to tell what patch is running.

If you are interested in testing the new patch, you can download the lastest patch binaries and install them in an existing NeoOffice/J 0.8.1 installation using the following steps.

- If you have not already installed NeoOffice/J 0.8.1, download and install it from:
http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/download.php
- Download the latest patch binaries from:
http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/downloads/patches/NeoOfficeJ-0.8.1-patch-1.tar.gz
- Open a new terminal and execute the following commands to unzip the file:
Code:
cd <NeoJ installation directory>/NeoOfficeJ.app
sudo tar zxvf <path to downloaded *.tar.gz file>


The patch is 933408 bytes in size.

Please reopen any of the bugs in Bugzilla that do not seem to be fixed with this patch.

Patrick

I was in the process of verifying one bug and I think I have found a second one....I am running 0.8.1 Patch 1 and noticed that the Apple for the shortcut does not display in the menus...I will send you an email with a pic..
While I was taking the image I min. the NeoOffice/J window with the menu open and it stayed on the screen while the rest of the app minimized....

The one thing that I have done it installed fonts in the ~/Library/Fonts directory that are from a StarOffice Windows install to get the missing fonts...(Dont know if this is a problem, but thought I better mention it)

Hi Patrick, sorry for not being able to help with the testing of v0.8.x so far.

Just as a FYI, I'm actually having big problems downloading the full v0.8.1 from your planamesa site - it will only give me 9.8MB and then the download will abort. I'm currently successfully downloading it from one of the other links but the same thing was happening yesterday as well (and the alternate links were not reaching anything higher than a few bytes per second at that time).

My site is very overloaded (64 gigabytes were downloaded yesterday) so it is not surprising that you are getting partial downloads. I instructions for using the "curl" command (which is a resumable download tool) to handle this situation. Check out the "curl" instructions at http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/download.php.

That looks like a real bug. I'm probably supposed to explicitly close all child windows (menus, etc.) which, of course, I am not doing. Can you file a bug in Bugzilla at http://bugzilla.neooffice.org so that I won't forget this bug?

You have a font conflict. Java assigns the "SansSerif" font to the first font that it finds that is named "Geneva" so if you have put a font with the same name in your ~/Library/Fonts directory that does not have the Apple character (and many Windows fonts do not), then Java is going to use your (not nearly as good as Mac OS X's) Geneva font.

Fixed the Font problem as you explained...

Also filed a bug for the menu staying open when minimized.

Great job by the way on 0.8.1....you should have told me Flip had it on our servers over here last Friday... Wink

I just posted "patch-3" for NeoOffice/J 0.8.1. This patch is "patch-2" plus a fix for the following bug:

All,

I just posted "patch-4" for NeoOffice/J 0.8.1. This patch is "patch-3" plus a fix for the following bug:

1. Dragging a NeoOffice/J file onto the "Print Center" application would cause NeoOffice/J to eventually crash. With this patch, the file will cause NeoOffice/J to print the file without causing NeoOffice/J to crash. Note that if you drag a file on the "Print Center" application when NeoOffice/J is not running will only cause NeoOffice/J to be launched but no printing will occur (this is a bug in Java 1.3.1).

If you are interested in testing the new patch, you can download the lastest patch binaries and install them in an existing NeoOffice/J 0.8.1 installation using the following steps.

- If you have not already installed NeoOffice/J 0.8.1, download and install it from:
http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/download.php
- Download the latest patch binaries from:
http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/downloads/patches/NeoOfficeJ-0.8.1-patch-4.tar.gz
- Open a new terminal and execute the following commands to unzip the file:
Code:
cd <NeoJ installation directory>/NeoOfficeJ.app
sudo tar zxvf <path to downloaded *.tar.gz file>


The patch is 2634683 bytes in size.

Please reopen any of the bugs in Bugzilla that do not seem to be fixed with this patch.
