Since porting takes time, i decided to give a little sneakpeak on how far the porting have come.
I will tell right away that there is an issue with wxcocoa/wxwidgets2.9 and the calendar in the logviewer on mac, so by default the application will use wxWidgets2.8.12 on mac which uses the Carbon GUI until wxcocoa works with the calendar widget.
You can however force the logbook to use the wxcocoa by editing the logbook-mac, logviewer-mac and settings-mac files and comment out
my $wxversion = "mac_2_8_12";
and then uncomment
my $wxversion = "osx_cocoa_2_9_3";
Enjoy the sneakpeek screenshots below!
NOTE: the carbon gui and cocoa gui requires their own separate modules, you can have both installed at once though! But giving you all a heads up because the carbon and cocoa modules are 50mb - 100mb (depending if i decide to strip the modules for uneccesary files or not which can be tedious)
PS: Due to the requirement of perl mslb will be changed from "small" to "fast". QT is nice and all and i would really prefer to use that but its perl support is lacking (perlQT4 is not documented very well) and C++ is just a pain
It is late but i have now compiled the My Simple Logbook for use on android4.0 and above, this same version works on previous versions too!
The new version comes with compability with the new preset.conf in the upcoming version 2.8 on desktop, however the android version might not get the new features from 2.8
Version 2.7.4 uses Ministro II which is the new version of the QT libraries on android, so please uninstall the old version of Ministro to free up some space!
PS: I have not compiled this version for desktop systems because i am focusing on getting v2.8 ready, you can however compile v2.7.4 yourself without any issues :)
Been messing around with the android portion of the mslb code and i am currently testing the package.
The fix will tell the application to use the "Roboto" font if it is available on the phone/tablet. If it is not available it will use the stock DroidSans font.
If all goes well tomorrow i will upload the new package and source (v2.7).
Good thing i use this application at work to write my logs when i am not at my pc :)
PS: i will only support the stock and roboto fonts for android, if you are using a custom font(from "font installer" for example) i will not support that.
Just tested MSLB on Android4.0 Ice Cream Sandwhich. The font is shown as s due to google replacing the font in Android 4.0 with their own Roboto font.
Just wanted you all to know i am aware of the problem :)
Just reuploaded all the mslb 2.6 releases for solaris, linux and bsd so they use the uu-installer version 2.1.
This will make the installer work on all the platforms again :)
In a few minutes i will also release uu-installer 2.1 and the QT4Solaris links
uu-installer v2.0 is now released and the bsd version of mslb is currently using it for installation of itself :)
uu-installer v2.0 lets you make a library archive for all binary files in the files folders and it is much more customizable.
mslb v2.6 includes a settings window now and the search logs supports regular expressions :)
