Notices for 30th January 2008 to 13th January 2008

Wednesday, 30th January 2008

Good news: David Joffe has given me his blessing to archive the Windows Crash Gallery which had been taken off the Web along with the rest of his site. This means that the Windows Crash Gallery is back on the Web to stay.

Even better, he should be forwarding his collection of pending screenshots (as I hoped he might) so these will also get posted in time.

One long standing defect with Batch-RegEx was the lack of a facility for setting default and global flags. I’ve had a brainwave, thanks to Anthony, and now I’ve put a global flags system in place. Finally, I have a way to set flag m globally and stop forgetting that I need to use it!

One annoying bug in HTTP Werkzeug is the way it deals with memorising window state. Maximised windows will come back as normal windows but the size of a maximised window, and thus are unable to be easily resized due to the size border being outside the desktop. This is now fixed in version 1.3a2, which handles window state reliably. Now that I’ve written some code to do this, I’ve updated Batch-RegEx to be able to store the sizes and positions of its windows; the same changes have been applied to my PrefEdit developer tool.
