Re: [hatari-devel] Things still remaining before v1.8 release?

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


The OS X file selector did not do any sort of filtering. I have been able to select STX, IPF, and ST files without doing anything. I do not have any CTR or RAW files that I can test. However, I would expect them to be selectable as well. 

I thought you had to have v5 of the capslib in order to read CTR files. The last time I checked, that version was not available for OS X. 

As far as the floppy options, someone would knew Interface Builder well could probably do the work in a couple of hours. Unfortunately, Jerome appears to be busy and I have not seen any posts from Cocoa Pod recently. He could be on holiday.

In my opinion, I would not wait to release 1.8 for the OS X keyboard shortcuts. As far as I know, the shortcuts in the File menu have not ever worked. If we remove the File keyboard shortcuts, I would prefer that Jerome or Cocoa Pod do this. If I simply change the NIB file, I am concerned that the NIB and XIB files will no longer be in sync.

While I would love to see Nicolas’ new floppy options added to the OS X GUI, I am confident that the typical OS X Hatari user is not going to need to disable one of the floppy drives or change either drive to single-sided. Unfortunately, the Xcode Interface Builder learning curve is too steep for me right now. If someone does need to make those changes, the SDL menu is still available for use.

I don't know how much work it would take to add "enable" and "double sided" to the floppy options screen in OSX, but at least the fileselector should be modified to recognize the new formats *.STX, *.IPF, *.RAW and *.CTR (I don't know if OSX's version filtered ST/MSA/DIM ?)
